Erica Campbell believes that gun violence in America, such as the killing of over 1,800 people in Chicago this year from gang violence and the two officer-involved shooting deaths of black men last week, are caused by demonic forces that are out to destroy the world.
The Grammy Award-winning gospel music singer and first lady of the California Worship Center took to Instagram to give a spiritual take on the problems that plague disenfranchised communities throughout the nation.
“They’re demons on assignment to stop our progress. Yes there is injustice but what we’re really fighting against is a stronghold, not people,” Campbell wrote on Instagram. “Satan wants the world destroyed! If WE the body of Christ, The Whole Body all over the world unite we win!”
Last week, black men Alton Sterling of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Philando Castile of Falcon Heights, Minnesota, were killed at the hands of police officers. This was followed by three shootings of police officers in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, and the killing of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, during a Black Lives Matter protest by a man who said he “wanted to kill while people,” specifically white law enforcement officers.
Instead of worrying about what the Church is going to do to help ease the racial tensions, Campbell suggests that people should be spending more time praying.
