As CBN News reported, while he was incinerating documents from old files in his backyard fire pit, a gas can exploded in his hands. Corey was airlifted by helicopter to a D.C. burn center where doctors determined he suffered third-degree burns over 65% of his body. 

He had been in the ICU of the medical facility since that time.

Charisma News Brief: 2 Wounded, Alleged Shooter Dead as Violence Erupts at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church

Reports from authorities in Houston, Texas, continue to come in after a woman allegedly entered Joel Osteen‘s Lakewood Church and began shooting before the Spanish-language service was set to begin at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11. Houston police chief Troy Finner told reporters that the suspect, armed with a long gun, began firing after she entered the church. Two off-duty police officers engaged with and struck the shooter.

“She is deceased here on the scene,” Finner said. “Unfortunately, the 5 year-old kid was hit and is in critical condition at a local hospital. There was a 57-year-old man who didn’t have anything to do with it, I don’t think, who was shot in the leg. He’s seeking treatment in the hospital.”

Is It Ignorance or Did We Just Get Lazy?

In Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis described vague religion as being so attractive because it is all thrills and no work, much like watching the waves from the beach. He noted that you will not get to Newfoundland by studying the Atlantic that way, nor will you get there by looking at maps and never going to sea, or by going to sea without a map.

If we embark on a journey and expect to arrive on time with as little misdirection as possible, we’ll need a map. It helps to understand the plan to reach our destination before we leave home.

We’ll want to know that the directions are correct. Before the days of map apps and global positioning systems, we used foldout maps, memory or intuition. Even when we wandered off course, we thought that driving in circles would get us back on track. After being harangued by a frustrated passenger, we would stop at a gas station, albeit reluctantly, to ask directions. Do this a few times and you realize that other people might not get you to where you’re going, either.
