American Pastors Network Statement on Catastrophic Shootings: ‘God’s Judgment Against Sin and Evil is Only Surpassed by His Grace and Mercy When People Repent’
PHILADELPHIA—In the wake of a deadly and horrific weekend in America, the American Pastors Network (APN) President Sam Rohrer released the following statement:
“Once again, violence and wanton murder has plagued our land—just another reminder of the reality of sin and evil, and a predictable result of a culture that rejects God and the Bible and a healthy fear of God. Our hearts go out to the families who lost loved ones in this weekend’s carnage. Our prayers for healing of those injured are serious and genuine.
“What will our nation learn and will our leaders respond is the question. Nothing short of repentance toward God, and grief over our individual and national sin of idolatry and self-will by our leaders in office, in the pulpit and as citizens generally can stop the slide into anarchy. God’s judgment against sin and evil is only surpassed by His grace and mercy when people repent. We pray for a return to God, not a demand for greater government or less freedom.”
Rohrer and his co-hosts will discuss the tragic shootings in El Paso and Dayton today at noon ET on the national APN radio program, “Stand in the Gap Today,” heard on several hundred stations nationwide, Rohrer also hosts the daily radio feature, “Stand in the Gap Minute” and the weekly “Stand in the Gap” television program, reaching millions of households on several networks.
