Words of Comfort: Christians & Guns

"Jesus would never have carried a gun. A Christian with a gun is a fake Christian."

I don't carry a gun, but I wouldn't condemn someone who wanted to protect his family from an armed intruder. Neither should you. There are millions of fake Christians who don't carry guns. Love is the criteria for Christianity, not whether or not someone carries a gun. If you were in a public place and some crazy person was shooting children, would you be pleased to see someone take him out? I’m sure you would. Would you change your mind if you found out that the hero was a Christian? I'm sure you would want the murderer to be stopped no matter who stopped him or how he was stopped. The person who stops evil isn’t evil. Jesus is not the person you make Him out to be. The Bible says that He's coming in flaming fire to take vengeance on the disobedient. He doesn't need a gun to deal with evil. He has ten great cannons of the moral Law.
