Colorado Church Gunman Sought Revenge After He Was Kicked Out of Missionary Training
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The gunman believed to have killed four people at a megachurch and a missionary training school had been thrown out of the school a few years ago and had been sending it hate mail, police said in court papers Monday.

The gunman was identified as Matthew Murray, 24, who was home-schooled in what a friend said was a deeply religious Christian household. Murray's father is a neurologist and a leading multiple-sclerosis researcher.

Five people — including Murray — were killed, and five others wounded Sunday in the two eruptions of violence 12 hours and 65 miles apart.

The first attack took place at Youth With a Mission, a training center for missionaries in the Denver suburb of Arvada; the other occurred at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, where Murray was shot by a security guard, though investigators said he may have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. ...

I watched Larry King yesterday and they interview a person who lodged with the gunman at YWAM. He awoke with the young man tossing and making noises, he asked him what was going on. And he was told by the to be gunman, along the lines, don't worry, no harm will come to you, the voices like you. The young man obviously had spiritual and mental illness.

There is no doubt in my mind that it was right that this young man was not suited for a missions trip. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia and when I became ill I had voices commanding me to kill people. It is only by the grace of God that I didn't listen and the experience was more terrible than I can tell.

I have also experienced a lot of cruelty from Churches and from other Christians and again it is only by the grace of God that I haven't lost my faith in The Lord Jesus Christ.

I know the young man was listening to Marilyn Manson and other dark music, perhaps that and other things made a gateway of the enemy in his life.

I am sickened in my stomach of the loss that these families have gone through. I cannot imagine the horror of their deep personal losses and long for an extra measure of grace in their lives.

Would he need to get permission from the State to be a missionary to his neighbor, or does that only apply to far away people?

If he wanted to be a missionary that bad, all he had to do is witness to his neighbors.

The boy probably wasn't even taught the real gospel.

As with the "fundamentalist" label, the "deeply religious" label used here implies that one can be a Christian but not real serious about it.

Also notice how State agents always mention that so and so was "home-schooled" in relation to some negative story. When do we here that a gunman or some other bad individual was State-schooled?

By the way, I feel that "godly-educated" is more appropriate terminology rather than "home-schooled." Home-schooled implies, first of all, allegedly stupid parents (or moms) doing the teaching, and secondly, that State schooling is an option. Godly education implies that the only alternative is an ungodly education.

His parents obviously didn't teach him about self control, love, unselfishness, that you don't always get your way...

The list could go on.
