Religion and guns…


Look, I don’t want to get into the philosophical debate of self-defense and whether or not such a thing is permissible to Christians. There are many words written on that discussion already.

 

All I want to say is that even if you have the right to own all of the guns you want, maybe ‘humbling yourself’ and ‘loving your neighbor’ might entail being willing to have limits on your rights so your neighbors don’t have to bury their children.

 

And maybe that impulse to object and say, “But my rights!” is a part of the old human nature?

 

Just something to think about, Christians.
