Bus Driver Saves Students From Armed Terrorists Doing ‘God’s Will’

A quick thinking school bus driver prevents armed terrorists from doing “God’s will” and attacking students and teachers at an elementary school in Macon County, NC.

Earlier this week Adam Conley, 38, and Kathryn Jeter, 29, both heavily armed, were arrested on the South Macon Elementary School grounds. When asked why they were at the school with loaded guns the suspects said it was “God’s will.”

When asked what they would do if children and teachers had shown up, they said that “if it would have been God’s will for us to shoot the children” they would have shot them.

However, quick thinking school bus driver Alice Bradley prevented what could have been a horrific tragedy. In a press conference Friday, Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland praised Bradley for preventing a potential bloodbath.


Doing. Gods. Will.

Let that sink in.

The Cage: A Young Children’s Guide to the Biblical Teaching on Hell – C. Matthew McMahon

Little children ought to learn all the teachings Jesus taught about in the Bible. 1/6th of everything Jesus taught about was on judgment and hell. That is a huge amount of teaching on the subject! But how do we teach our children such a hard biblical idea appropriately?

Jesus said to Israel’s teacher, Nicodemas, in John 3:3, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
This is not exclusive for adults, it applies to everyone every conceived under Adam’s original sin. From the moment of conception, we have all gone astray under Adam’s original transgression. But how do we communicate this to children?

In this tastefully illustrated work that is completely in rhyme, the Bible’s teaching about hell is outlined in a very easy to understand manner. It is aimed at children 5 to 9 years old, but can certainly be read by any age. It concerns a young boy who we find is trapped in a cage called “Big Sin” and can’t escape on his own. The cage is suspended by a chain that is rusting and could break at any moment. What will our young friend do? What is he thinking about as he stands there locked away? He sees others in cages as well, some who don’t escape, and some who jump to safety as their prisons doors are opened by a mysterious key. Will our young friend get out? How will he escape THE CAGE?

C. Matthew McMahon, Ph.D., Th.D., is an American Calvinist Reformed theologian and adjunct professor at Whitefield Theological Seminary. He is the founder and chairman of A Puritan’s Mind, the largest Reformed website on the internet for students of the Bible concerning Reformed Theology, the Puritans and Covenant Theology. He is also the founder of Puritan Publications which publishes rare Reformed and Puritan works from the 17th century.


Uhm... This is Religion, folks. We must respect deeply-held religious beliefs, right? Right?
