A Bible Literally Saved This 49 Year Old Bus Driver’s Life When He Was Attacked By Gangmembers
Degenerate gangmembers attacked a Dayton bus driver, and police believe that he barely got away with his life because of one little inspirational book he happened to carry in his pocket – the Bible.
49-year old Rickey Wagoner had stepped outside his bus to see why it had stopped running, when three cowards accosted him. When he turned to face his attackers, two gunshots pounded in to his chest. Though he was hurt, he lunged at his attackers, grabbing the gun, but the assailant was able to shoot him once more in the leg.
As he fought for his life, one of the other degenerates stabbed him in his arm, but he was still able to strike back with a pen he found in his pocket, stabbing one of them in the leg. After they ran off, and police attended to him, they discovered what had prevented the bullets that struck him in the chest from killing him – a copy of the Bible.
Police said those bullets were stopped by some sort of “intervention.”
“The two bullets were stopped by the New Testament book in his (shirt) pocket,” [Sgt. Michael] Pauley said. Police later referred to the book as a religious devotional titled “The Message,” which is a modern translation of the Bible.
“There was obviously some kind of intervention involved in this incident, because he probably should not be here,” Pauley said.
What a miracle! Wagoner is recovering from the injuries. His son posted this message, “Dad is doing good now and my family and I are just lucky he is still alive,” on his Facebook page Monday.
Wagoner described the attackers as young black males, likely in their late teens. He said they fled in a dark-colored 1990s model Ford. No arrests have been made.
According to a police report, Wagoner told investigators he believed the shooting may have been a gang initiation. He said he heard one of the suspects tell another to kill him “if you want to be all the way in the club.”
It’s unfortunate Wagoner was armed only with a pen and a Bible, and not a firearm as well.
Let me say really quick that I don’t believe Christians will always be saved by God when threatened – obviously that’s not the case, and we shouldn’t expect it. But when these events happen, I think it’s pretty clear that it was God acting for His own purposes, and we should find encouragement when He makes His presence clear.
Let’s hope those cowards are brought to justice promptly.
