So a man is to provide for his family spiritually, emotionally and financially, but not physically? Give me a break! Iām so blessed to be married do a Christian man who provides all of the above and isnāt so heavenly minded that heās of no earthly good. Nothing but pacifism being promoted by the three from over seas.
It is not a sin to own a firearm, Sorry if yāall live in countries where it is illegal.We are granted that right in America. Believe me if armed thugs are kicking in your door at 3:00 a:m if you want to quote Scripture fine, weāll be praying and reaching for the side-iron.
Thatās your opinion BMC and you are entitled to give it. I respectfully disagree.You probably do not live in the United States as also the other two posters who share your views. As stated in my previous comment it is a personal conviction and choice that is not a sin and granted to us by the U.S. Constitution. I assure you,we are not rebels, crusaders,or guerillas, Donāt believe everything you hear or see on the fake news sites. Take care.
Ultimately the decision to bear arms is a personal choice determined by ones own personal convictions based on biblical principles.As a Christian deadly force should only be applied as a last resort,to stop evil being committed or to protect human life.
Itās been my experience that people living overseas, different countries, etc. have a purely Hollywierd tv mentality concerning Americans. They think we wear 10 gallon hats, spurs, and speak with a southern drawl, and have our side iron strapped on ready to draw at any provocation.
Early Christian martyrs died for their witness and faith in Christ, not passivity due to acts of aggression, robbery,or violence. The ownership of a weapon for protection does not mean ones ultimate faith and trust isnāt in God.
āI have therefore no difficulty in accepting,say, the view of those scholars who tell us that the account of creation in Genesis is derived from earlier Semitic stories which were pagan and mythicalā.
