  34. And none of them are “PERSECUTION”

  35. Why be concerned with Church Safety? The “S.O.M.” FACTOR THE Sinfulness Of Man We who read our Bible should have a better understanding of man than anyone!

  36. PAUL THE APOSTLE UNDERSTOOD MAN… • No one understands… • No one seeks for God. • All have turned aside; • Together they have become worthless; • No one does good, not even one. • Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive. • The venom of asps is under their lips. • Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness. • Their feet are swift to shed blood… • In their paths are ruin and misery • The way of peace they have not known. • There is no fear of God before their eyes.

  37. OKLAHOMA (2009) “Police found the nude body of Carol Daniels, her arms outstretched, lying behind the altar…” CAROL DANIELS

  38. GULFPORT, MS – October, 2011 70-year old Paul Buckmanarrested…

  39. FRED WINTERS Pastor First Baptist Church Maryville, IL Terry Sedlacek Shot and killed Pastor Winters (2009)

  40. “…authorities say Sedlacek appeared to have planned the attack, since he referred to Sunday as ‘death day’ on a planner found in his Troy home and he carried enough ammunition to kill 30 people.”

  41. “That would never happen in our church…”

  42. MARK 1… “Jesus lost no time in getting to the meeting place. He spent the day there teaching… Suddenly, while still in the meeting place… Jesus was interrupted by a man who was deeply disturbed and yelling out…"

  43. “I got a big ole angel protecting me…why Why do I need to worry about church safety?”

  44. The biggest obstacle to setting up a church safety plan is a MENTAL BLOCK • The mental block is created by aFAULTY BELIEF • The faulty belief says - “FAITH PROTECTS US FROM HARM” (ESPECIALLY WHEN AT CHURCH)

  45. The death of Job’s children • Saul killed 80 priests • 75 million martyrs since Stephen (Acts 7) • More in the last century than the previous centuries combined (45 million) • Over 400 people killed on church (faith-based) property since March, 1999 • (600 DEADLY FORCE INCIDENTS SINCE 1999)

  46. Justification for protecting the flock • MATTHEW 10:17 “Be on your GUARD against men; they will flog youIN their synagogues.”

  47. Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him… Jesus’ warning “Beware of men” reveals His understanding of man But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew human nature. No one needed to tell him what mankind is really like.

  48. PROVERBS 22:3 “A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”

  49. JOHN 7:1 • THE PRUDENCE OF JESUS… • “…Jesus was going about his business in Galilee. He didn't want to travel in Judea because the Jews there were looking for a chance to kill him.”

  50. REASONS TO PROTECT… • Love - 1 COR 13 • “love…always protects…” • Jesus (John 18) stands up for His disciples when He’s arrested • The Early Church often met in secret • The children are worth it!
