Post the Killer’s Names

Those who commit heinous cowardly acts for notoriety should be denied fame by never seeing their name in print. However, when an abusive man hurts the people he should protect, their name should be spread. By the time they’re incarcerated every inmate should know their story.

In Matthew 18:6, Jesus said, “it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” In Matthew 22:13, He offered a solution for one attempting to enter the kingdom while arrogantly exhibiting personal rebellion of kingdom values, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside…”

In 1 Timothy 5:8, Paul said, “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” When a man attacks those he is responsible for, he is worse than those who are worse than an infidel.

Declare their name.

Last Wednesday morning, 49-year-old Adam Slater climbed into the car of his estranged wife in the parking lot of the Southwest Church in Indian Hills, California. He told her, “You’re dying today — we’re all dying today” as he repeatedly stabbed her. When another driver saw the attack, they began honking.

The coward ran, leaving his 6-month pregnant wife to die (she will live to testify). However, he snatched their 1-year-old daughter out of her car-seat taking her with him.

He rolled his vehicle a few miles away. A good Samaritan saw the wreck and rescued the little girl from the passenger side of the overturned vehicle. Slater climbed out his side, ran to the man holding his daughter, stabbed him, took his daughter, ran to the edge of a nearby cliff and threw her to her death below.

 

Think About it

The estranged wife would only meet him in public places due to fear.

You have people; parishioners and unknowns, using your church grounds as a “safe place.”

Over 60% of violent crimes at ministries take place during non-event hours. Pray and plan for the safety of your congregation and for others who pass through your ministry home.

If you say you can’t do anything, you sure won’t. While you won’t stop everything, don’t dismiss those risks by doing nothing.

Pray; and have a plan. There is real evil out there. Call it by name when you see it.

Carl, A little off the subject, but just thinking of you and all of your family. This is you first Mother’s Day without Mom. One of the sayings that comes to mind is “gone, but not forgotten”. No one can take away the memories.

Take care,

Tom

Tom, thank you very much my friend. It was her best Mother’s day ever.

This pure evil individual you described above, surely deserves the death penalty………But I bet, he got life in jail…..We are warehousing so many murderers in our state prisons across the country; and now some states are releasing felons including murderers because of this Red Chinese virus back into our streets!……What are we doing to ourselves???

Bob, the real question is are we doing what we can in our own circles? With our families first, then our community (whatever that community may be). We can’t fix the world but we can sure lead our own.
