Some were not interested in losing their power and corrupt privileges. Others preferred to continue their religious life with a “straw God”.

Other neighbours like the Spanish evangelicals also reacted to the earthquake.
Dear brothers of the Italian EA,
We have been deeply moved this morning when we have seen the effects of the earthquake in some cities of the centre of Italy. Our prayers are for those who have suffered loss of lives among their beloved and loss of their essentials. We would also offer our support if you think that we can be helpful in practical ways.
May God show his mercy to all who suffer and grieve.
