Bring Your Guns to Church?

WWJD?

I saw a story on TheBlaze this morning, “Should Churchgoers Be Able to Bring Guns to Houses of Worship?”  This is a very thought provoking question and I know people on both sides of this issue.  Let’s set aside the political aspect of this thought and look at the underlying question.  Should Christian be able to defend themselves?  As Americans, this is an obvious yes.  It’s written in the constitution that Americans should be able to ‘keep and bear arms’ so they can protect themselves.  It is an American right and a natural right.

Let’s look at what has happened in the past.  There is a great Documentary out called ‘Shooting Back,’ which details how a church in Africa was targeted by Muslims.  While the church was in service, the men entered throwing grenades and shooting people.  One man was armed and fired back.  The men retreated after that.  If this man had not been “packing heat,” most if not all of them would have been killed.  It is also widely known that Christian persecution throughout the world is rampant and in most cases any caught with a Bible or having a Christian church service are executed.

Just look what’s happening in America.  In just about a month we’ve had a handful of shootings.  These crimes are happening in public places where the assailants know the victims will be unarmed.  One happened in a movie theatre, one in a college, one in a sikh temple, and one in a Christian organization.  The FRC shooting in Washington D.C. was direct attack on Christians by extreme leftists.  Hate crimes against Christians are on the rise.  There was a study just released that on more than 600 documented cases of hostility against Christians in the U.S.  That’s just the documented ones, who knows how many are undocumented.

I’ve said it before, and at the risk of being called someone who “clings to my religion and my guns”, I am going to cling to my religion and my guns!  I think that carrying in church is something that you need to decide on yourself and talk with your pastor, priest, or rabbi about.  It is not against the law, a church is private property, and I feel that there is enough threat in this world to validate bringing a gun to church.

Muslim Brotherhood Crucifies Opposition

The group of “freedom fighter’s” that President Obama backed are now crucifying those who oppose the newly elected ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ president.  Before you rush to judgement, don’t forget they are a group of misunderstood, peace loving people who just want the freedom to practice their religion like everyone else in the world.  They also pick flowers everyday and send them to Israel and Israel gives them blankets full of AIDS and smallpox. So there must be a reason that they have to defend themselves by crucifying opponents.

Obviously not.  The ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ is a violent terrorist group clinging to their Koran’s and their guns.

Jesus Supports 50 – 100% Tax Rate? Really?

According to TIME author Erika Christakis, Jesus would advocate a 50 – 100% tax rate, and because Jesus’ teachings on wealth are “…nowhere to be found in Ryan’s budget proposal,” Christians should not vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket.

In her own words:

Americans often tell pollsters they yearn for a return to the Christian principles on which the U.S. was founded. If so, they should take a closer look at the Mitt Romney–Paul Ryan ticket. Jesus’ teachings regarding wealth are nowhere to be found in Ryan’s budget proposal.

As near as we can tell, Jesus would advocate a tax rate somewhere between 50% (in the vein of “If you have two coats, give one to the man who has none”) and 100% (if you want to get into heaven, be poor).  Mostly, he suggested giving all your money up for the benefit of others. And Jesus made no distinction between the deserving and undeserving poor; his love and generosity applied to all.

Now Jesus did not say because you have two coats give one to the poor man.  He told us that you should love your neighbor as yourself. For example, if you are walking down the street and you see someone less fortunate than you shivering in the cold, because they don’t have a coat, blanket, or warm clothing; you should feel enough love for that person that you should give them your coat, blanket, etc.  Far from this socialistic idea of I have more than you so to make things fair I need to give you one of mine.

As for the “…if you want to get into heaven, be poor…” I have not found anything in the bible that says this.  There was a rich man that came to Jesus and asked how to receive eternal life.  He was told to sell all his possessions and give the proceeds to the poor and to follow Jesus.  He was told this because Jesus knew he loved his wealth more than anything else and he had to get rid of that idol to be able to love his neighbors or even Jesus.  Wealth is not evil. It is often said that “In the bible it says’Money is the root of all evil,” however the correct phrasing is “The love of money is the root of all evil.”

Palestinian Fatah Party Celebrating… With Hitler Salute

Palestinian speaker's 'Sieg Heil' Salute

Images shown on Palestinian Authority TV showed a Fatah celebration, not sure what they were celebrating.  The images below were taken from “The Blaze” where you can also see the video.  This is just another example of how the world is forgetting and re-wrting the dark parts of our history.  Except, of course, the parts of history where we make America look bad.

Occupy Christmas?

Strange things, both legal and illegal, have been seen at the occupy events.  However, at occupy DC a live nativity scene was seen.  It is unclear who is behind the scene from the video.

Some of the reactions from the protestors are interesting.  Ranging from “This ain’t church.” to the hilarious “Is that legal?”.

Atheists Demand Nativity Scene Be Removed

(The Blaze) Christian pastors in Henderson County, Texas, are fighting back against atheists who are demanding that a nativity scene located on a courthouse lawn be taken down.

The group behind the complains, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, frequently targets faith and religion projects that are placed on public lands. The group sent a letter to the county that explains how a local resident, who wishes to remain nameless, is offended by the scene.
