On Easter Sunday (March 31), a man lit a trailer filled with Bibles on fire near the entrance of Greg Locke’s Global Vision Bible Church (GVBC) in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, in what appears to be an attempt to thwart people from attending the worship service.

“Happy Resurrection Sunday,” Locke posted on social media. “This morning at 6:00 AM our security cameras caught a man dropping off a trailer in the middle of the intersection and blocking the road into our church.”

Locke said that the man then “got out and set fire to an entire trailer full of Bibles right in front of our church.” Fortunately, a woman who had driven all night to attend GVBC’s Easter service was sitting in the parking lot and quickly alerted police.

“It was quite the scene to wake up to on my first morning back from Israel,” Locke added. “Had to block traffic in all directions, but they are almost finished cleaning it up. It’s going to be a great day in the Lord.”

Locke told ChurchLeaders that the man “tried to keep people from accessing the road, but this is Global Vision, our people have been through the worst and still manage to show up.”

During his sermon on Sunday, Locke told the congregation, “Many of you know the enemy has already been fighting [this morning], which shows me that God’s on the throne and God’s doing something.”

“I came over [to the church] early, and I’m like, why is Chandler Road blocked with the police? What did I do? I’ve been in Israel and I haven’t said anything,” the controversial Locke joked.

Locke shared that a man unhooked his trailer filled with Bibles near GVBC’s parking lot, doused it with gasoline, and lit it on fire.

Images of the aftermath showed a pile of burnt Bibles in what appears to be the kind of trailer that would usually haul lawn equipment.
