Like the logo says: Christian First,
.....everything else after that
I guess of everything that anybody says to me, what makes me sickest is "you call yourself a Christian?" because their ignorant perception of what a Christian is doesn't coincide with what I do or say.
Since this web site is about
and use from a Christian perspective, that's where I'll start.
The notion that a Christian should not own or use a weapon
in self defense is first unbiblical and second flies in the face of the second amendment to the Constitution.
Recorded in Matthew 26:51-52 and John 18:10-11
is Peter cutting off the ear of a soldier in the group that had come to retrieve Jesus.
While Jesus commanded him to put up his sword, it must be acknowledged that Peter and the
other disciples carried swords daily for self defense against robbers, wild animals, etc.
Jesus acknowledged their possession of weapons but never told them to give them up - Luke 22:38.
