(Katy,Texas) Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield,founder of FaithInspires.Org released the following statement after hearing about today’s mass church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. ” It is a sad day for Texas, for all Christians, and all people of sincere faith. Anytime violence strikes a place of worship, particularly on the Sabbath, the hurt burrows deep. Any motive if known has not yet been made public. Even so we cannot remake this world according to any one tragedy. Neither can we regulate such tragedies away. We can however rededicate ourselves to what our faith teaches us. We live in a fallen world, one which desperately needs our example. What we can do is rededicate ourselves to reaching out to those around us. To sharing Christ’s compassion to those who are hurting. To befriend those who are struggling and feel alone. The root causes of such tragedies must be discovered and met head on with what scripture has taught us.”
Crutchfield went on to say ” As always we engage in ongoing prayer, first of all for the first responders many of whom must live the rest of their lives dealing with the horrors of events such as we saw today. Even more so we pray that God will endure with the families of those killed, the injured and their families, The First Baptist Church family and everyone in Sutherland Springs. May his comfort and strength remain with them long after the headlines have faded. ”

International Award winning Christian Writer/Blogger Issues Statement Strongly Condemning Egyptian Church Bombings.
Katy, Texas) In response to ISIS’s claim of responsibility for the bombing of two Egyptian churches, Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield, Founder of FaithInspires.Org and an international award winning writer and blogger issued the following statement.
“ In attacking two churches on Palm Sunday, the Islamic State did not just attack two churches, but attacked the ideals that all people of faith share. They have shown us again that they have no respect for human life, or any faith but their own. Their actions are a disgrace to their faith or any other, and cannot be condoned for any reason or at any level. “
Crutchfield turned his attention to compassion for the victims adding, “ I begin by thanking God for the mercy he showed Coptic Pope Tawadros II, and all those who were spared from the attack. My heart is crying for those who were killed and injured. I encourage fervent prayer for those killed and their families, the injured, and those who were called to assist them all.”
The statement was issued through the FaithInspires.Org website, and released to the media Sunday afternoon following the attacks.
