Mel Gibson's Church -- Security on 'High Alert'

7/17/2010 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's church has been on total lockdown ever since the whole alleged abuse scandal broke -- and according to a source inside Mel's haven, security's been cranked up more than ever before.

A member of Mel's congregation tells TMZ, security at the chapel is on "high alert" -- checking IDs and "making sure there aren't extra people in approved cars." According to the source, guards have been stationed outside every weekend ... as well as at Mel's house around the clock.

We're told new, would-be parishioners are persona non grata, for security reasons.

Our source adds Oksana stopped attending the church in February -- approximately a month after the alleged tooth/veneer-breaking argument with Mel.

Gibson's ex-wife claims he never physically abused her or their sons but she doesn't mention anything about emotional abuse. Being the self-absorbed hot head that he is, I'm sure Robyn had to put up with a lot of emotional and psychological abuse.

`Mel Gibson, repent, to God concerning you out burst. You made the movie, THE PASSION, and protrayed our LORD and SAVIOR, LIFE, DEATH AND BURIEL, JUST LIKE IT'S PROTRAYED IN THE BIBLE. MEL, YOU HAD TO FEEL SOMETHING IN THE MAKING OF SUCH A FILM. IF YOU DID'NT FEEL THE SPIRIT OF GOD, HERES WHAT YOU SHOULD DO. ASK JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR HEART. THE REASON YOU ASK HIM, IS BECAUSE YOU'RE A BELIVER. A CHRISTIAN IS SOMEONE WHO ACCEPT JESUS. BELEIVE jESUS DIED FOR THEIR SINS. DO YOU BELEIVE MEL?

TMZ portraies Mel Gibson with chosen photographs, stops in the worse way to present it.
TMZ seems to be representing iteresses of Jews, pursuing Mel Gibson. TMZ anti-Christian.
TMZ seems to be making edition of photographs of Mel Gibson with photoshop. They want shows it in the worse way.

It is a place of worship and not a circus, I would not let anyone in either, I am sure that if they did they would have tons of disrupting journalists and paparazzi trying to get their five minutes of fame. Prayer is what is needed now; Prayer for everyone involved but mostly for the Gibson Family and that poor little Lucia Angel. Go add your comments and prayers at: www.support-mel.com
