Church haters nearly destroy Tennessee house of worship, but pastor forgives

Vandals caused nearly $50,000 in damages and nearly destroyed One Church Memphis.

Davante Hill, the pastor of One Church, a local church in Frayser, Tennessee, has said that he forgives the vandals who wreaked havoc on the place, causing an estimated $50,000 in damages.

The pastor, who walked in Sunday morning to see his church almost entirely decimated, still had the following words for the haters: ‘God still loves you’.

“A lot of the money that it took to start the church, came out of my personal finances,” Hill told News3.

Hill told the police that when he entered the church, he found the power had been cut off, paint was thrown at the walls, musical instruments were broken, pews were destroyed, almost all of the chairs were damaged, and several speaks as well as cash were also stolen.

Hill told a local TV station, WMC: “hen I walked in… what broke me, was not the condition of the sanctuary, what broke me was the condition of someone’s heart to be willing to do such a thing.”

The pastor also pointed out that the individuals who committed this act had probably been to the church before because they switched off the security cameras before breaking into the place.

While the police carry on their investigation into this egregious crime, the pastor had these words of forgiveness for the perpetrators: “I would love for whoever is responsible to consider my heart when I say, ‘I love you and God still loves you. And that this is not the end, there is life after this. And that whatever it is that has you broken, whatever it is that has you destroyed on the inside, there is help for you.”

Product Details

“You Are Chosen!” has 175 exciting pages to challenge Christians to become warriors for Christ.

For the second time in history, Christianity has become the most persecuted religion in the world - suffering from church bombings, targeted assassinations, lawsuits and incarcerations.

In today’s modern churches, few preachers ever spend time teaching Christians to live in a world that hates them - and targets them for their faith!

The properly trained warrior knows that Christ came to set fire to the Earth and that His Kingdom would suffer from oppression and violence.

They know Christ never came to bring world peace and that they must be prepared for persecution.

More than ever, Christians need to be properly trained and equipped. With the right guidance and armor, Christians can become warriors for Christ and confidently sing His praise, “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered.” (Ps. 68:1)

“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword,” Christ told his disciples. (Matt. 10:34 NASB)

“You Are Chosen!” focuses on the tools necessary for every Christian to stand firm and be equipped to scatter the enemies of Christ. As a Christian warrior you can be triumphant in a fallen world.

Christians, more than ever, need to put on the full armor of God
