Chicken-Fried News: Holy fire

First Thessalonians 5:2 says, “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

Well, something came to Church of the Living God Ministries at NE 50th Street and MLK Avenue like a thief on the night on Aug. 26, but it probably wasn’t the day of the Lord.

Oklahoma City Police arrested a man on suspicion of attempted robbery after Pastor Kenneth Morgan discovered him in the church’s dining area.

Morgan told News9.com the man said he was looking for food and something to drink, but what he found was a pistol-packing preacher.

Morgan held the suspect at gunpoint in the grass, police told the news station, but as police arrived, he took off running, eliciting a shot from Morgan’s gun that did not connect.

Helicopters and TV coverage led a neighbor to check his own backyard, where he spotted the suspect against a brick wall. After seeing through the cunning disguise, the resident called police.

Morgan said that in 10 years as a licensed gun carrier, this is the only time he has used his gun at church.
