Men… Christians… Parents… You have a God Given Right, and a Civic Responsibility to defend yourself. You should own, and be well trained in, the use of firearms.
Guns are tools – neither good nor bad. See, good or bad only applies to people’s behavior. Set a loaded gun on a table, and it will sit there forever. It will never harm anyone. At least not until someone comes along and picks it up.
Fun thing about guns. Someone has to pull the trigger.
And yes, turning the other cheek is a profoundly Christian behavior. It’s one I support and choose often. However, it’s not a luxury you have when the safety of your family is on the line.
In Luke 22, Christ is giving his disciples advice before they go out into the world. I recommend paying attention to Luke 22:36: “Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.”
What do you suppose Christ meant those swords to be used for?
There is only one conclusion a student can reach: the defense of those who cannot defend themselves.
I submit that if you are a Christian, it is your duty to responsibly keep firearms in your home, if not on your person.
I submit that if you are a citizen of any state in these United States, it is your civic duty to keep military servicable weapons in your home, lest you be called on empty-handed.
