Much more beneficial if we all stopped and said a prayer and asked for Gods mercy in saving Brad Pitt. We'd be worse if not for the grace of God. We should all thank God for his sovereign grace in our own lives and pray for the wind of the Spirit to blow into this mans heart that he be born again.
A heart opposite of the shepherds of (Ezekiel 34) always thankful to see shepherds lay not only lay down their life for their sheep, but the broken and helpless. May the Lord powerfully use his testimony.
By the way Jim Lincoln, your words are wise and absolutely true. There's no reason to bring up Michel Brown's name in preaching the gospel, so controversial it will only distract from the gospel. This guy loves to argue and loves it when people get in his face. Thanks for your words of wisdom Jim
I've seen this preacher before, he intentionally tries to pick fights with people. That's how he draws a crowd, he tries to offend people saying shocking offensive things and then the crowds come. He boasts in his big crowds but it's his offensive and inappropriate insults of people that draw the crowd, not interest in the gospel wrought by the Holy Spirit and preaching of truth. I'm a street preacher myself and to be honest I'm glad he got popped in the jaw. But I know unless the Lord moves in his heart it will only make his head bigger and he'll boast in persecution for the gospel, but it's not the gospel that got him punched, but his ranting on controversial comments just trying to "get persecuted" this is far from the apostles and prophets.

This must be taught by parents and regulated by parents
By the way, I'm referring to your interpretation of (Luke 22:36). Don't forget teachers will be judged more strictly, that doesn't exclude internet posts that are not putting forth Biblical truth. Just a strong caution to not peddle the Word of God to put forth your political agenda
Wave Palm That is a perfect example of proof texting, do you really believe Jesus' words in the moments before being cut off from his Father, and being crushed for our sins, he's gonna give a lesson on gun protection and political policy for owning a weapon? He's speaking about fulfillment of prophecy in his death. Read commentaries throughout history how the church has interpreted this passage.
