Pastor Urges His Flock to Bring Guns to Church
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Ken Pagano, the pastor of the New Bethel Church here, is passionate about gun rights. He shoots regularly at the local firing range, and his sermon two weeks ago was on “God, Guns, Gospel and Geometry.” And on Saturday night, he is inviting his congregation of 150 and others to wear or carry their firearms into the sanctuary to “celebrate our rights as Americans!” as a promotional flier for the “open carry celebration” puts it.

“God and guns were part of the foundation of this country,” Mr. Pagano, 49, said Wednesday in the small brick Assembly of God church, where a large wooden cross hung over the altar and two American flags jutted from side walls. “I don’t see any contradiction in this. Not every Christian denomination is pacifist.”

The bring-your-gun-to-church day, which will include a $1 raffle of a handgun, firearms safety lessons and a picnic, is another sign that the ...

A-men Faithful Remnant. Indeed, somehow it has become a strange tradition or custom that clearly departed at some time down the line from hearkening back to the Scriptures verily. The Church of God is of the same spirit as Israel without walls, bars, and gates, NOW, and the kingdom does not come with observation, but NOW shall be within us, so we NOW have the swords beaten into plowshares and spears into pruninghooks: all weapons are NOW converted for threshing, or to be burned up. If there be any weapon, arrow, or sword, it is that weapon that proceeds from between the lips: we overcome the beast by the blood of the LAMB, and by nothing short of a MIGHTY HAND he will bring us under the bond of his covenant.

And they worshipped the creature more than the creator. Yep, no surprise this is a pentecostal church. As long as it works to draw a crowd or cause awe, it must be of God even if it isn't in the Bible. The pastor cares more about politics than a soul's redemption.

Yes, we seem to have a bunch of social activists rather than pastors to churches, now one could very well expect this from an Assembly of God Church, since proper Biblical study isn't one of their strong points --remember Jimmy Swiggart?

So many Methodists, but they seem to find churches to preach in, no matter what the name of the church is.

By the way, quite right, Mr. Dispy. [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?sermonID=10505121650]]]The Church and Social Responsibility[/URL]

This is ONLY A SATIRICAL RUMOR.

But, upon hearing about this, members of a liberal AOG church down the road will have a "bring a jewish abortion doctor to church day" to counter Pagano.

These doctors will stand outside to protest.

Las Vegas odds makers are completely baffled. They do NOT know which side will win.

Government submitting Romans 13 DARBYIST, or actual JEWS who have special DNA.

This is incredible! It would take the death of, two pop icons to determine this. One a beauty in a bathing suit and another who liked boys in them...HOLD ON, WHAT? YOU'RE KIDDING!

Back to you...
