Should Christians Have A Gun?

“Should Christians Have A Gun?” (07.01.18)

Christian Stewardship of Government

Romans 13:1-5

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.”

Luke 22:35-38

“And He said to them, ‘When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?’

So they said, ‘Nothing.’

Then He said to them, ‘But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: “And He was numbered with the transgressors.” For the things concerning Me have an end.’

So they said, ‘Lord, look, here are two swords.’

And He said to them, ‘It is enough.'”
