How not to disagree with your pastor. Even if he is WoF.

Apparently one guy in the church service didn’t like what Billy Joe Daugherty had top say so he punched him. I was watching Fox News and saw this story. So far I have not come across a reason as to why Daugherty was attacked. Well see…story below.

Caught on Tape: Pastor Attacked During Church Service
Ouch! It’s an alter call one pastor won’t soon forget. A man attacked his pastor in the middle of a church service – and it was all caught on tape!

Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty was standing in front of a prayer group in Tulsa when a man punched him. Daugherty had just invited churchgoers to come forward for prayer last Sunday when a man motioned for him. As Daugherty approached the man, he was punched in the face. The man went after Daugherty again, but others in the congregation restrained him.

Despite a bloody wound, Daugherty returned to the stage before a doctor took him to a clinic for stitches.

Daugherty said he didn’t know the man and won’t press charges.

In another news report Daugherty commented:

“The Bible says we may be knocked down, but we aren’t knocked out,” Daugherty said. “We’re still in the game. And that’s the message of life.”

That paraphase must be from The Message paraphrase.

With the way The Message translates, it could be any verse. Even John 1:1 might be what is refered to.
