An Armed Man Walked Into A Church On New Year’s Eve, But Then The Pastor Stepped Forward And Said THIS

On New Years Eve, the congregation at Heal The Land Outreach Ministries in Fayetteville, North Carolina came face to face with a fear that is plaguing people across the country.

According to Fox News, a man suffering from PTSD walked into the church with a rifle in one hand and full clip in the other hand.  “I saw in his eyes hopelessness, hurt, pain, despair,” Pastor Larry Wright said.

While members of the congregation panicked and fled, Pastor Wright approached the man and asked him, “Can I help you?”  In a surprising turn of events, the armed man asked Wright to pray for him.  The man was at his wits end.  His wife had been diagnosed with an illness and due to their medical issues, the couple was in extreme financial distress.

At that moment, Wright knew just what to do.  He took the rifle from the man and sat him down in the front row.  Wright and the rest of the congregation prayed for the man.  “He gave his life to Christ,” Wright said.

After the service, police took the man to a local medical center for observation.  The man was not charged in the incident.  He did, however, return to the church and apologized to the congregation for his actions. 

Members of the church hopes that the man returns.  “I pray that he comes back and visits us.  I’m not scared of him, not now,” a member of the congregation said.
