I’m humbled by WND Films having made a brand new documentary movie about ‘Shooting Back’.
SEE SURVIVOR’S DRAMATIC NEW FILM ON ‘SHOOTING BACK’
Lone defender of church attacked by terrorists contends it’s biblical thing to do
He may have been outgunned but he wasn’t ungunned, and consequently, the experts agree, he probably saved hundreds, maybe even a thousand lives.
But this is not the kind of dramatic story you should expect to see in the U.S. establishment media – especially not when the man firing the gun is a pastor defending a church from attack by terrorists.
The Sunday evening service was under way when the attack happened. Eleven churchgoers were killed and 53 were wounded. The terrorists were armed with grenades and automatic weapons with an intent to kill the thousand or so attending the service that night.
Even though they had superior firepower, the last thing the terrorists expected was return fire – so they fled and catastrophe was averted.
Nevertheless, the St. James Massacre in South Africa in 1993 is still considered one of the worst terrorist attacks on a church in recent history.
Charl Van Wyk’s story is chronicled in his book “Shooting Back: The Right and Duty of Self-Defense,” now considered a classic work of apologetics published by WND Books. He not only relates his unique and harrowing story, he also provides the scriptural context for armed self-defense.
But you probably never have heard Charl van Wyk’s name before. You certainly haven’t seen him interviewed by major media. Nor do you see him invited to deliver this politically incorrect message in the biggest churches around the world.
That’s why WND Films made a brand new documentary movie about the unique story for you to share with your friends and family members – maybe even your church.
“We’re so excited about the uniqueness of this classic story of what one armed person can do faced with overwhelming numbers of heavily armed attackers that we want everyone to have a chance to watch it,” says Joseph Farah, founder of WND and WND Films. “So we’re giving it away to introduce it to the WND audience. People are always asking me why we charge for our books and our movies. The answer is simple – because they cost money to publish and produce, to replicate and ship. But we do love giving things away when we can, so here’s a special streaming opportunity while it lasts.”
In Christian circles, Van Wyk concludes, there is an additional imperative to be armed for self-defense.
“The Apostle Paul wrote in a letter to Timothy, ‘But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially of those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever,’” noted Van Wyk. “Provision includes providing security. In fact our Lord Jesus taught, ‘If you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.’”
Quoting Jesus again, van Wyk added, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’
“Are we loving our neighbor when we stand by and do nothing when he is being murdered or a woman is being raped?”
Van Wyk’s experience in regions of Africa where criminals are armed but the citizenry is not has seasoned his perspective, but he warns that Americans cannot fail to be diligent in protecting their Second Amendment rights.
In his book “Shooting Back,” van Wyk not only documents the notorious and bloody attack but offers the first in-depth exploration of the biblical case for armed self-defense.
“I call this story the one that is too hot for the NRA,” says Farah. “If that sounds like it’s for you, check it out for FREE while you can. My guess is you will like it so much you will want to purchase the book and the DVD.”
