Trailer of Bibles Intentionally Set on Fire in Front of Church on Easter Sunday

Authorities in a Tennessee community are investigating after a trailer full of Bibles was intentionally set on fire in front of a church on Easter Sunday.

Around 6 a.m. on Sunday, the Mount Juliet Police Department and Fire Department swiftly responded to a trailer fire located in an intersection that was blocking the entrance of the Global Vision Church.

The church’s pastor, Greg Locke, said in a statement posted on Facebook, that the church’s security cameras were able to capture a man reportedly dropping off the trailer before setting it ablaze.

“There was a lady that had driven through the night to get to our church, and she was in the parking lot and was able to get the police officers here quickly, but it was quite the scene to wake up to on my first morning back from Israel,” Pastor Locke wrote.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office also issued a statement saying they believe the fire was set intentionally.

Hundreds took to social media to show their support for the church, that was able to proceed without having any Easter services interrupted.

“The evil out there is frightening. So thankful no one was harmed or damage done to the church. May our Lord touch the heart of the person who did this,” one user wrote.

“Gods got the next move. Jesus is alive and doing mighty things. Prayers for that man and also for the church. Onward Christain Soldiers,” another user wrote.

“Wow… the enemy is stirred and knows his time is limited. We shall not be shaken!” one comment read.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said it is not known at this time if the fire was aimed at the church or not.

“To uphold the integrity of the ongoing investigation, other specific details cannot be provided at this time. However, we assure the community that further updates will be shared at the appropriate juncture,” the sheriff’s office stated.

No injuries have been reported following the incident, officials said.

Anyone who may have additional information and/or camera footage is urged to contact the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 615-444-1459.

    No proof to back this up…..as usual! Where are the pics, and the statements. With all the availability of cell phones that have video capabilities it is highly unusual that not a single person took pictures of a video. Don’t even show them actually on fire, just an aftermath of a bunch of books. Looks like someone is playing with photoshop again and spewing off at the mouth. And the picture they show reminds me of the same one used a few years back

    Wilson County Sheriff’s Department, is truly showing its Barney Fyfe superior intellect. Reference they couldn’t tell if the fire was set intentionally…Right, it spontaneously combusted. And again with the comment, the dept couldn’t say if the was directed at the church or not..,gain right, trailer left at entrance of church as to blocking people from entering parking lot.

    Yes, I see no connection to the church or the intention.
    What buffoons…

    The culprit should be charged with a federal hate crime.
