Mass Shooting at Church Service in Nashville – Masked Shooter Identified as Sudanese Immigrant (video)…

Nashville Tennessee – One person was killed and eight others wounded Sunday after a masked man opened fire following a church service in Antioch.  Press Conference with details below:

.

The shooter, identified as Emanuel Kidega Samson, a 25-year-old Rutherford County man from Sudan, accidentally shot himself after he was confronted by an armed member of the congregation and is being treated at the hospital, according to Metro Nashville Police.

Police say he previously attended the church.  The woman killed has been identified as Melanie Smith, 39, of Smyrna.

[…] Police say the gunman wore a neoprene ski mask when he shot and killed a woman in the parking lot of Burnette Chapel Church of Christ, as the service was ending shortly after 11 a.m. With his blue Nissan Xterra still running, the gunman then entered the rear sanctuary doors of the church and began “indiscriminately” shooting, police said.

[…] An usher confronted the shooter while inside the church and was violently pistol whipped, Aaron said. During the confrontation with the usher, the gunman shot himself in the left chest, Aaron said. Shortly after the shooting the gunman was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, he said.

[…]  After identifying the shooter, who had two pistols, in the afternoon, police said Samson was a legal U.S. resident but not a U.S. citizen, who came from Sudan in 1996. (read more)

**Note** Sudan is on the President Trump travel list of nations for enhanced security and vetting.

            Khartoum, the capital, is a cesspool of evil & izlaam, & is relentless in their fight to retake the South Sudan, which is mostly Christian. Add to that, “Persecuted Christians”. Add the UN to the mix, and all of the outsiders who want access to the minerals, etc., in South Sudan, and makes it much worse.

            As for this guy, as a former Tennessean now living close, but in E. Arkansas, N’ville & Memphis/Shelby County are rife with moozlims. Remember the huge fight over the mega mosque which was built in Murfreesboro? The non-moozlims lost that one. There is another one in Shelby County, which didn’t really make the news when it was built, but the chief imam is a part time professor at Rhodes College, and a huge advocate of jihad against the unbelievers, as evident on many YouTube videos. Name is Yasir Qaedi, a US born moozlim. Here is a very short video, but do a ‘search’ for him. Why he is still at Rhodes? I was adjunct professor there for 13 years, and knew nothing about him until after I left, but Rhodes is a lefty, liberal arts college, very pricey, and most likely think they are being inclusive.

            Also over in middle TN, you have a HUGE Somali population around Shelbyville, brought here to work at Tyson Chicken Plant there. They have also been problematic. Also at least 2 terrorist training camps in TN.

            Both the Memphis paper, and the N’ville Tennessean seem to carefully stress that the shooter was a Christian, having attended the church in the past………Well, never forget taqiyya is a given in izzlam, so he may have been setting them up for his own personal jihad. If you want to truth, avoid both of these newspapers, and look elsewhere.

        Anger that God allowed it, perhaps! Sometimes, it’s difficult to accept what God allows.
        People like to put God in a box and pretend that only good happens in a Christian’s life.

        That’s not reality and that’s definitely not Biblical.

        What God’s Word does say, is that He will work all things together for our good for those that love Him and are called according to His purposes.

        The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.

        I’ve faced death and I’ve faced destruction. God changeth not. It’s people that change and God is either Lord of your life or He isn’t. If He isn’t, you’re going to have a hard time accepting what happens.

        Up here, though, I’m thinking “people” were Hispanic, since the “event” was on a Saturday night. Although we have had several shocking killings by Asians – Koreans, I believe – they are not mass killings and do not appear to be alcohol related.

In one news report i read the pastor of the church was new. Steroids, supplements, propaganda, PTSD, lack of sucess… maybe he snapped? Why the civil rights investigation?

                “The Church of Christ is a semi-cultic denom.”

                ______________

                The church of Christ is non-denominational (there is no Authority for denominationalism in God’s Word). Every congregation is autonomous (according to Scriptural example), but in fellowship with other congregations (also according to Scriptural example).

                It is called or referred to in the same way as the Lord’s church in Scripture, i.e., in such a way that glorifies God the Father or Christ the Son. For example, the Lord’s church is referred to in the following ways in Scripture:

                The church of the Firstborn:
                “To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,” (Hebrews 12:23, KJV)

                .

                The church of God:
                “Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:” (1 Corinthians 1:2)

                .

                The church of Christ: “Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.” (Romans 16:16)

                There are many other examples where the Lord’s church is referred to as the “church of God” or by geography (e.g., “church of the Laodiceans”, Colossians 4:16) or a combination of both, in reference to God and geography:

                “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth,” (2 Corinthians 1:1a)

                The church which was attacked today in Tennessee is known as the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tennessee.

                .

                While nearly every group (religious or secular) meets some of the dictionary definitions of the word “cult”, the word “cult” is used almost exclusively in a negative regard, in the following ways (see boldface):

                ……………………….
                Dictionary.com
                Cult
                noun
                1. a particular system of religious worship, especially with reference to its rites and ceremonies.
                2. an instance of great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body of admirers: the physical fitness cult.
                3. the object of such devotion.

                4. a group or sect bound together by veneration of the same thing, person, ideal, etc.
                5. Sociology. a group having a sacred ideology and a set of rites centering around their sacred symbols.
                6. a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader.
                7. the members of such a religion or sect.
                ……………………….

                .

                ……………..
                Merriam-Webster
                Definition of cult
                1 :formal religious veneration :worship
                2 :a system of religious beliefs and ritual; also :its body of adherents the cult of Apollo 3 :a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious (see spurious 2); also :its body of adherents the voodoo cult a satanic cult
                4 :a system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator health cults

                ……………..

                The church of Christ is not a ‘cult’ (certainly not in any negative sense of the dictionary definition) unless Christianity itself is a ‘cult’.

                The word “cult” is an important word, and it accurately describes many religious groups which do not follow God’s Word or keep His commandments.

                The church of Christ, by definition, is not one one those.

                .
                .

                “The second [church of Christ] believe that they are they only legitimate body of believers.”

                ______________

                I don’t believe that is true. Any member of Christ’s church should know that it matters not at all what he or she believes — what matters is what God’s Word actually says.

                The ‘legitimate body’ of Christ is determined by Christ, as is revealed in His Word, not by the members of His church.

                For example:

                “And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. [28] But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.” (Luke 28:27-28)

                “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)

                “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.” (John 12:48)

                “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: [17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

                .
                .

                “They are pretty conservative but a little whacky.”

                _____________

                Is Jesus Christ ‘whacky’?

                Is His Word “whacky”?

                Is following, adhering to what His Word actually says, ‘whacky’?

                Please understand that I do not mean any of the above as a sharp retort or to be unfriendly or unkind in any way! My purpose and intent is to point to the truth, as best as I am able.

                Most Christian groups believe they are working toward a full understanding of God’s word and fulfilling Christ’s teachings. The Church of Christ is no exception. “Semi-Cultic”? “A little whacky”? I can’t imagine what background colors your appraisal, but it simply isn’t accurate. My husband and I have relatives who are Church of Christ, as well as Baptists, Roman Catholic, Methodist, and Mormon, so we have a pretty good understanding of the differences and similarities. Every group can have a few members who claim they have the one and only valid interpretation, but most Christians are just trying to live good, righteous lives in a world which increasingly hostile to Christianity. I pray for God to heal the heartache of those poor people whose lives have been shattered by this deranged person.

                  There are many people within the groups that call themselves Christian who understand themselves to be Christians because they have been brain-washed to believe it. There are many who want to love and serve the God of scripture but who have been deceived by groups like the Mormon church. There are people who hold to religion and think they are Christians who live under fear of being excommunicated as in Catholicism. There are all sorts of varieties of people in cults and false religions and even in Christianity where the money grubbing deceivers reign. The body of Christ is composed only of those who have repented of their sins and have received forgiveness through Jesus Christ. God has put the witness of salvation in their souls so they know beyond all doubt that they are his children. Apart from that witness given at salvation and carried throughout their lives of service to God and their fellowman there is only deception. Far too much is based on an emotional experience instead of the miraculous transformation of a sinner to a child of the most high God. The proof is in the pudding. Ye shall know them by their fruits.

          • The churches of Christ are non-denominational and all function independently of one another. Many do mission work, but definitely do not take money from the government, ever. They are fully self-supporting through their congregant’s donations. I’ve been a member my entire life, as has my husband, and our families have been members for many generations going back. It’s a very sad day to be sure. Thank you for your comments, Risa. God bless. 🙏🏻

              Piper, this isn’t really in response to your post but just a convenient place to post a related thought.

              Why do we consider it controversial to carry a gun in a church? To most of us, it is very natural to have a gun in our house to protect ourselves and those dear to us.

              Why would we not want to be able to protect ourselves and some of society’s most vulnerable (children and elderly) in a church?

              Yes, it is sad that it is needed, but Christianity has never denied that there is evil on this earth.

              I think that the libs have planted a straw man that since Christians want peace and do not want to harm their fellow man, the last place on earth you should have a gun is in church.

              That dog doesn’t hunt. Good Christians have defended the weak against evil from the very beginning.

                To your point, we are lucky this is the extent we have to go to in order to worship as Christians. I know this is a sad state of affairs and a change from the peace we are accustomed too but look at our Christian brothers and sisters routinely being slaughtered for their faith. Mass killings and beheadings in Egypt, Pakistan, The Phillipines, Nigeria etc etc. A priest was beheaded during a mass in France. France for. Dying out loud.

                There is a worldwide war on Christians by Muslims and we have got to consider ourselves part of that reality and hold the line to defend the faith.

      So, these laws are in place. Judging on history of these shooters, I am sure this guy does not fit within legal limits. So, calls for MORE gun laws are illogical: if the prevailing laws are good, then this guy would not have ended up shooting anyone.

Also on the list were foreign born gang members legitimized by anchor babies.

            islam is evil.

            By its own doctrine, islam defines itself as anti-Christ.

            Here is a sample of the islamic teaching:

            …………………………………………..
            “The religion of Islam has as one of its foundational beliefs, a direct denial of Jesus as God’s Son. This denial is found several times throughout the Quran:

            In blasphemy indeed are those that say that God is Christ the son of Mary. -Surah 5:17 (Yusuf Ali)

            They say: “God hath begotten a son!” – Glory be to Him! He is self-sufficient!

            His are all things in the heavens and on earth! No warrant have ye for this! Say ye about Allah what ye know not? -Surah 10:68 (Yusuf Ali)

            They said, “The Most Gracious has begotten a son”! You have uttered a gross blasphemy. The heavens are about to shatter, the earth is about to tear asunder, and the mountains are about to crumble. Because they claim that the Most Gracious has begotten a son. It is not befitting the Most Gracious that He should beget a son. –Surah 19:88-92 (Rashad Khalifa)

            …the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! -Surah 9:30 (Yusuf Ali)”

            http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/JR/Future/ch12_the_antichrist_spirit_of_islam.htm

            (I have no affiliation with that website, any website with an English translation of the islamic verses above will do)
            ………………………………………………

            So islam plainly teaches that Jesus is NOT the Son of God, and in doing so, islam calls the God of Abraham a liar:

            …………………..
            “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.” (1 John 5:10, emphasis mine)
            …………………..

            ………………….
            “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:22, boldface emphasis mine)
            ………………….

            .

            Considering that islam condones and teaches misogyny, oppression, violence, torture, mutilation, pedophilia, rape, slavery, murder and genocide (and that is certainly not an exhaustive list), if Satan was creating a religion, what would he add, that islam does not already do?

            How is that not a fair question?

His flight took off, circled several times, then landed again a Washington National. The FBI boarded the aircraft, took possession of the dewat, interviewed John briefly then the flight proceeded normally. A week later two agents delivered his dewat to his home.

      I think what the perps are looking for is a “right to be uncivil”.

      As soon as different classes of “victims” are defined, then the original definition of the crime in question is diluted. At this point it becomes a system of castes, differing social strata are rewarded/penalized under ever-changing rules, according to the whims of the elite.

      In effect, “hate crimes” are legally-encoded bigotry/racism. Nothing more, nothing less.
      And the elite LOVE to use that for control.

The “wild wild west” shoot ’em up stuff was actually very limited, as were depredations by the “James Gang” and the like. Fast forward to the post-WWII (skip WWI–not enough involvement/skewed by prohibition) era, that delivered our modern times’ “good ol’ days” of the late 40’s-early 60’s and has even seen some sporadic revivals in times since. e.g., http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/crime/article24591469.html

        Don’t buy your wife a gun without her having tried it out! She needs to have at least held it, worked the safety(s), slide, mag change, and dry fired! She also needs to fill out her own paperwork and be the buyer–why even remotely open yourself to a “straw purchase” charge?

        My wife has fired most of my guns at some point, but she, our concealed carry license instructor, and I quickly realized that overwhelmingly the best gun for her was not an semiauto, but a Ruger SP101 .357 mag revolver, loaded with .38 spls. The magnum version has a heavier frame, barrel and ejector shroud, reducing felt recoil, even with only a 2.5″ or 3″ barrel. That’s where it beats the Lady Smiths and such.

        .38 spl is plenty for most encounters and won’t provoke most lib persecutors/juries like a magnum or even .45 will. Specialized “Black Talon” or “Hydro-shock” ammo, though conceivably a good idea, also attracts special scrutiny from persecutors–plain lead ammo doesn’t scream “intent to kill” and since it’s the same stuff you practice with, you should be most accurate with it. Of course, if your wife can handle a .40, that now seems to be the LE standard, so can’t be criticized too much and definitely carries a little more stopping power.

        But fundamentally, a gun should/must never be drawn unless there is good cause to fire it with the intent to hit and permanently stop (strategically, your intent is always to “stop,” not to “kill”) a specific target with high-percentage center-mass hits. Training and practice is necessary to make sure that can happen very quickly and accurately. Anyone who lacks the reserve and judgment to avoid waving a gun just to “scare” someone and the discipline and resolve to use it, when necessary, should just support others who are better equipped to deal with the mental and legal sides of packing heat.

        Open carry is your right, but it’s stupid. Why do you want to give perps the edge of knowing you’re armed? In a normally crowded mall or on a street, are you 100% confident that you can defend against someone you don’t know and have no reason to suspect of anything sucker punching you and taking your open carried firearm? Concealed carry is the only way to go in public.

      My son, who used to love pro sports and followed his favorite NFL teams closely, has completely turned them off. He’s disgusted with the complete lack of action or concern by the league and ownership about the players’ violence toward women and others, their failure to institute reasonable safety rules, when they knew the “game” was destroying players, both physically and mentally, and now the outrageous rejection of the very nation that makes their absurd salaries and undeserved grandiose status possible. His time with us and friends doing productive and pleasant things on Sundays and Monday nights proves that the NFL is nothing but poison and even in its better days was probably just hiding its evil better than it does now.

    Just kidding… he’s a Sudanese national and not a white male, so this will get no coverage at all. Maybe a 15 second mention with no accompanying video or pictures, tops.

    By the way:

    -He’s 25
    -Was into competitive body building (not quite blood sports, but in the same vein)
    -Attended at least some college
    -Is a first generation immigrant/refugee/whatever who has spent most of his life in the US
    -Reportedly attended the church at some point in the past (was he a “bad” Muslim for a time?)

    Profile seems kind of familiar, doesn’t it? Wonder if he traveled overseas recently or just became a father…

      These facts leave me with the question:
      He came here at 5. How was he supported? On whose dime? He’s 25 and has spent some time at college and held a few minimum wage jobs. Where is he getting the money to support himself, do college, and do competitive bodybuilding?

      I’ve seen no mention of parents, and that is probably because if we knew something about them, we wouldn’t like it.

      Since they aren’t telling us, I’ll make the reasonable conclusion that they came as refugees, they have no skills, and the entire family has been living on our dime since they came here. And with a lesser degree of certainty, the parents are probably muslim.

          My mother emigrated to the US via Ellis Island in 1944. She had a green card 73 years until earlier this year when she passed away, but was still a citizen of England. Having said that, she knew ALL of the answers to the US citizenship exam, indeed she knew an enormous amount about US history (I used to say because she lived through most of it 🙂 ).

          Nonetheless, she chose to remain a “British Subject”, although she was a better American than most people I know. Her life, her choice. It’s not as simple as you make it out to be, and there are many reasons that “Permanent Resident” is a category of residence in the USA. I hope you are not trying to conflate people like her with the illegals flooding in right now. That is disingenuous at best, a slur at worst.

          I have been in Germany for more than 35 years, and despite whatever language and history skills I have, I will remain an American. And I had to jump through a HUGE number of hoops to get residency/work permission here, not like the refauxgees. Same thing with my mother and Ellis Island (and all the paperwork, EVERY YEAR).

          Today’s perps, be they refauxgees or illegal aliens, don’t lift a finger, and, thanks to Obozo and his fellow Soros puppet Merkel, aren’t called on it. President Trump is on the way to changing that.

          P.S. Why is it so critical for permanent residents to become citizens? At least during the 1940s, probably even until the Hart-Celler Act (do you know what that is?), the vetting done to residency applicants was quite strict…

            Your mother and we had a shared culture. You mostly have a shared culture with indigenous Europe, so residency without citizenship works out (at least until Sharia compliance becomes a requirement). Requiring people who want to remain in the USA, for the most part, to become citizens, should have the effect of weeding out those who refuse to acculturate to the free, rule-of-law, Judeo-Christian, Constitutional Republic society that makes our nation what it is. It should be difficult–a pearl of great price that must be earned and appreciated. We are seeing what just giving citizenship, the franchise, and many many more free “benefits” has given us–disrespect, unjust entitlement, and criminality.
