Ah James, when you say, "I think....." you are expressing uncertainty.
Nope, I'm saying that is what I think which means I am expressing what I think.
And I think that's all for me on this topic.

I think many examples have been provided in this thread by others to show that using necessary means for protection are acceptable in the eyes of God. Those needing more examples from Scripture to shape their thoughts on the matter can be found when God used a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

1. It must be God's fault that America has a regular Sandy Hook and the nation does nothing about it except blame mental health problems.

2. Today the idea of a right to have a deadly weapon for no other reason than bureaucratic rules, ancient ideas or to kill intruders does seem to be primitive and uncivilised, - Besides unnecessary!

1. The Boston marathon had a tragedy due to a pressure cooker filled with nails. It was neither God's fault, nor the manufacture of the pressure cooker and nails. It was, however, the intention of the individuals to harm, maim, and kill for a reason that I cannot fathom. Shall we ban pressure cookers and nails? THEIR actions received the just consequences.

2. Intruders do not care about rules. Only law abiding citizens do. One who lawfully carries can and do defend others and themselves from those who make these choices of destruction.

Isn't it interesting that
In the early 1780’s when the outcome of the war with the British was in serious doubt, The need for guns and clothing and food to supply George Washington’s Army were in critical short supply; nevertheless, the Congress voted to fund at great cost the Bible in English to issue to the soldiers.

The faith of his own making would simply be filthy rags
so good riddens to them. Perhaps he will be called to the Faith which is the fruit of the indwelling Holy Spirit (Gal 5:22) which is the life of Christ and part and parcel of the gift of grace. Only God knows.
Then he will know that faith is not given; rather it buds and blossoms into life (the just shall live by faith) in the heart of those who hear (ears to hear) or read (with eyes to see and a heart to perceive) the word of God.

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

That is an interesting idea on Demas, but here is something else to consider.

2 Tim 1:4 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica;

Paul and those with him (Demas included) were not delivered as of yet from the present evil world Per Gal 1:4, which is during the same timeline as The commentary in 2 Timothy 1:4.

Gal 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins,that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

I think that will Paul mentioned can be seen when The Son prayed to the Father to keep them from the evil.

John 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

and I think we see why Demas went the way he did according to John's 1 letter.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, **the love of the Father is not in him.**

I think that was a great question you asked SC and I have been thinking on it myself.

We should be able to put to the test that which we believe and not think above what is written(1 Cor 4:6).

1 Thess 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

There are biblical examples that can be used to show the harm of holding fast to deceit like in Jer. 8:5.

I think it was David who was shown his error by a prophet in a similar manner.

Hey Chris,
I have no idea of what his ministry is\was but it seems he was just a hireling and nothing more.
Putting on a name badge is different than receiving the new name given to those whom He wrote to.

Jer 31:33 After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

God thankfully does preserve those who are His.

Psalm 31:23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

I have never heard of his name before today but the idea that someone says "I am no longer a Christian" tells me they had not been one to begin with. {Isa. 62:2, Rev 3:12, Acts 11:26}

I could be wrong but seems to me, from what little I know of all this, we should be praying for his arrival, not his return.

John 10:27-28
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

When the Son calls, it's always successful.

Here's what Jude had to say:

Jude 1:24-15 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

The Son is charged with the job of preserving that which belonged to the Father and was given to the Son to redeem in time. Jude says He is able. I agree.

As Doc said, He never was.

Mr. James, concerning your tea you enjoyed in Ireland perhaps it was Barry’s Tea, and the chocolate biscuit was probably
Mcvites Chocolate Digestives.
Our favorite Irish treat..yum.Can both be ordered through Amazon.👍
It may have been Barry's tea. I may have to try some. The chocolate biscuit was first discovered in what would be our convenience store but with fresh baked goods served as if it were a bakery. Then again in a very small coffee shop.
Thanks for the recommendations.

Hey James, thanks for that. Say, that tea you found in Ireland with a rich flavour, it wasn't called Guinness was it?
Ha!

We drank tea every chance we got and it was great every time no matter where we were on the Island. I have no idea what type they served though it was all better than we have ever had. We also found a delicacy that I had not known to exist until we went on that trip. It's called a chocolate biscuit.

James, have you been busy? Not seen you around these parts for a while.
When it comes to tea, I drink a rather special brand, and I would be interested in what you yourself drink. I discovered in recent years (or I should say I was told) that both tea and coffee contained caffeine which is not a good thing. But that there was an alternative, and this was caffeine free by nature. It is a tea made from the Rooibos Bush, and is healthier. I have it together with Soya milk and no sugar. It is possible to get used to that, and I have been drinking it for many years now. Unfortunately, both are more expensive than ordinary tea or milk, but what price health?
Hey John,
I'm not too particular on what tea I drink. My wife, however, is a chamomile lavender fan. The best tea we both ever had the chance to drink was found during a trip we took to Ireland last year. The flavor was rich with no signs of artificial flavor that tends to jade the mass produced ones.
Yes, the schedule has been pretty busy here as of late.

"not reflective of our reality."

That's it in a nutshell. That is their reality. And they insist upon imposing their reality on others until they come in line with theirs or they are labeled haters. Drink their tea or else.

A fitting analogy, when understood rightly, i.e. the work of the Holy Spirit in an unbelievers life before implanting the incorruptible seed.
Thanks for that analogy Mike. I agree it is fitting and I think can help us understand more about the fallible words of men. I think God shows us this in the prophets.

Jer. 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.

Micah 3:12 Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field. Also mentioned in Jer 26:18.

The first vineyard produced wild grapes which produced strong drink (Isaiah 5).
Those wild grapes came from the corruptible seed I believe Peter spoke about being born to once before.

So God planted another, which He keeps.

Isaiah 27:2 I the LORD do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.

I think the means in which He keeps it is found here.

Psalm 40:11... let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me. (see John 15.)

He enables(2 Cor. 1:21) us to be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Therefore the only thing we can and should glory in would be found in Jer. 9:23-24 as God delights in it.

Thank you James, and I sure wish you well.
One thing that puzzles me is, How is it that I am the only one who engages in conversation with you? Is there a reason for that? If so, I would like to know what it is.
Maybe it seems that way because you ask many questions.
But I've talked to many here plenty so I don't think that to be the case.
Perhaps the topics of late have not been things most are interested in commenting on at lenght or some just follow along silently.

I understand your thoughts and have no problem you no seeing it that way. Few things to consider in addition to the picture I gave with the passage from Hosea.

Gal 2:7 the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;

Zech 6:13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

James, what made you think the centurion of Matthew 27:54 was Cornelius?
Good question. Short answer is over time the prophets kept leading to him.

While the centurion in Matt 27:54 is not named, there are not too many of these centurions to sort through who do get named either in Scripture.

I know that is not enough to go on, but don't take my word for it either.

In Acts 10 where Cornelius is named and known, and where God is orchestrating the events and meeting involving Peter and Cornelius; the events that occur in Acts 10 are mentioned in the prophets and they are there for us to hear their counsel.

Hosea 2:18 (KJV)
18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely.

Acts 10:11-12 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
