Great Sermon! I would like to purchase the Heidelberg book of catechism, the same version as you use in your services, so I can follow through with you as you preach. Please advise of the title and the version, so i can find it on the market.

I offered a rationalization of the defensive steps this congregation in the article is taking to preserve life. You offered criticism but no workable alternative.
I believe they are doing what they believe best for their own safety in their setting. I'd go a step further and post a sign out front: "This is NOT a gun free zone."
You live is a society where the general population is barred from bearing fire arms. We do not. The right to bear arms is grounded in our constitution and any attempt to infringe that right will be met with fierce resistance. That's just the way it is and we in the USA have to deal with it accordingly.
We have to deal with the possibility of some sick nut-job copy-cat waltzing into a gun-free zone and killing innocents, with deadly force if necessary, without infringing on the right of the rest of the law abiding citizens to defend themselves, family and property.
An unwillingness to view this from our perspective is unhelpful.

Mike, you bring some good pointers that could lead, if properly developed, to sound conclusions. Yes, "gun-violence"-talk points to an agenda propagated by the manipulating state media. The safety of any society in reality derives from godliness, not arms or politics.
Truth is a great weapon, so kindness, and above all the fear of God is the great antidote to crime, and trust in God's sovereigny and attributes renders peace to the believers' soul from whom our safety ultimately is.
So can we cerciorate the value of your tool in this context? Is America safer because of it? What if courts would move into the direction of righteousness, would this make the country safer? Or is all the gun-violence-talk a mere distraction from reality among others as Holywood, sports, entertainment, wealth or pampering are to a decadent, dull-sensitive society?

You don't talk about every detail of perversion even with adults, how much more children. You can talk about the vileness of paraphillia to your child once they are of age to be able to rationalize at a high level, and hopefully you are not sending them to a public school to begin with, more and more why I have told you people for over 10 years to get the @#@$ out of Babylon while you still can. This kind of thing is nothing new and why the new world was sought out by Christians, to escape Satanic tyrannies of the Islamic and fake Christian world which they found themselves enslaved under in Europe.
THE END OF THE WEST HAS COME. MARK MY WORD. Only civil war with millions of the wicked dead and a righteous military rule setup could ever save it and that will never happen, all your votes will be useless otherwise, Antichrists of all kinds, Pagans, Islamics, Atheists, rule every part of the west now, starting from the most powerful, the judges, to media, schooling, government and all in between.
Not getting back into the gun debate, just pointing out hypocrisy...
B said, "We were called to bless. Insult never comes with this."
Also B, "It is obvious you do not have a clue how logic works....along with reading their politics with insight, before they can perceive the folly of this set frame of mind....Please, be smart" (limited scrolling back via the app).
I donât use google, but every school, government and bank does. Weâre all headed towards a social credit world. The giggles crowd have laughed about the one world government, mark of the beast.. itâs been here for a long, long time. But todayâs incarnation is Corporate America and Beijing, China.
Excuse me, is it possible that the same person who said âIt is obvious you do not have a clue how logic worksâ is now saying âWe were called to bless. Insult never comes with thisâ? It is obvious you do not have a clue what talking out of both sides of your mouth means.
We had a mayor who implemented red light cameras and they were removed after it was proven that the yellow light was shortened by 2 seconds, causing an increase in accidents, no increase in revenue occurred because folks didnât pay and it caused so much controversy that some folks thought it was a breach of privacy. The mayor who implemented the cameras was defeated the next election. That was the best result.

We were called to bless. Insult never comes with this. However, if this is your way and makes you happy, it is clear where you are. Regretfully
