On Sunday, June 2nd, 2018 a Church fire broke out and what the flames didn’t damage the water did. However, amazingly amidst the fire upwards of all Bibles on Church grounds did not burn.
The Lighthouse Tabernacle Church in Crothersville, Indiana experienced a horrific tragedy; thankfully, no one was on site while the fire was raging. In addition, according to local firefighters and newspersons, it took fire crews from six towns and reportedly forty-five firefighters to put out the flames.
With the flames reaching upwards of ten to twelve feet, it has been reported that almost everything in the fire was destroyed, all but God’s Word.
Crothersville-Vernon Township Fire Chief Charles Densford said in response to the occurrence; “I can’t say 100 percent, but upper 90 percent, the Bibles were never burned,” he said in an interview with the local news station. The Fire Chief continued; “It’s actually amazing really.”
While speaking with the Christian Post, the Church stated in response to the tragedy; “The fireman is holding a whole stack of Bibles that made it through unscathed,” the representative said. “The two that were in [the] pastor’s office (where they believe the fire began) were also spared.” “Not sure if anything else made it at this point.”
The cause of the fire is not immediately apparent; however, it is under investigation.
