This is an update for the man who allegedly sparked a shooting at the gay affirming church in Stone Mountain, Ga. Marcus Ventress who shot the deceased victim, Ryan Guider the funeral was held for at the Victory for the World Church has been arrested by police. Ventress was in Columbus, Ga. when police caught up with him.
Ventress was allegedly responsible for instigating the shooting at Victory for the World Church, so he will not just be questioned about the death of Ryan Guider.
Please realize we do not hold the ministers of the gay affirming church accountable for the shooting that happened there, but we do not know why God may allow certain things to occur. Although, Marcus Ventress was wrong for the shooting death of Guider and also allegedly instigated the shooting that took more lives at the funeral, in our opinion, there is a spiritual responsibility to those who preach to souls at the church. For this reason, if sin is permitted within a flock, then God will not send his angels to take charge to protect a church that may not abide by his spiritual laws. You see, it pays to preach complete righteousness, before you tell others to take heed for their sin. There is no way any pastor whom affirm homosexuality can preach and rebuke murderers. God knows the heart of ever minister whom is supposed to be an example to change things within the church, not just the world. Any church that does not strictly follow biblical guidelines according to God's Word does not belong to God and no telling what could occur within or outside of church grounds. According to biblical scriptures, God's Word informs us it is not just a sin to be a murderer, but also a homosexual, as seen in the following scriptures below.
As for Marcus Ventress, he is a soul who must come to God and repent and it will take a righteous vessel chosen by God to witness to Him. Although, his alleged victim is gone, he is yet alive and has a chance to fully surrender his life to Jesus Christ before it is everlasting too late. These sort of people can be saved, it does not matter how bad people say they are. Once they repent for all of the evil they have done in their lives, God can set them totally free. So, we pray that not only Marcus Ventress surrenders his soul to Christ, but also others whom were involved in this fatal conflict.

- Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.
