According to an eye witness, "It was a very bright flash of lightening accompanied by loud thunder, and it was a very significant ground strike;" atypical of the ways and means of the biblical God of the old testament? Continuing his account of the incident which somewhat corroborates Icheoku's narrative that it was the wrath of God that consumed the "Touchdown Jesus" statue, the eye witness said, "The pattern of light flashed all the way to the ground in the general direction of the church. The statue burned very quickly, it burned to the ground. The whole statue was gone, less than four minutes after the strike and before dispatched fire service could get to the location within just five minutes of placing a fire call?"
