Authorities in Tennessee are investigating an Easter Sunday fire that destroyed a trailer full of Bibles parked in front of a local church.

Security footage showed a man dropping off the trailer before setting it ablaze around 6am.

Though the fire blocked the church entrance, Easter services proceeded as planned undisturbed.

“There was a lady that had driven through the night to get to our church, and she was in the parking lot and was able to get the police officers here quickly, but it was quite the scene to wake up to on my first morning back from Israel,” Pastor Locke wrote.

While the church pastor expressed concern over the “evil” and “frightening” act, congregants and community members offered support on social media.

They expressed faith that “God’s got the next move” and said “the enemy is stirred and knows his time is limited.”

“The evil out there is frightening. So thankful no one was harmed or damage done to the church. May our Lord touch the heart of the person who did this,” one X user wrote.

“Gods got the next move. Jesus is alive and doing mighty things. Prayers for that man and also for the church. Onward Christain Soldiers,” another wrote.

“Wow… the enemy is stirred and knows his time is limited. We shall not be shaken!” one user said.

Officials believe the fire was intentionally set but have not determined if the church was specifically targeted.

“To uphold the integrity of the ongoing investigation, other specific details cannot be provided at this time. However, we assure the community that further updates will be shared at the appropriate juncture,” the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office stated.

The investigation is ongoing.
