The National Council of Churches and other false teachers want to control your guns, and they do it under the guise of their religion. See Want Guns In Your Church? The NRA And Their Allies Do for a recent example of their flawed thinking.
Like the National Council of Churches, I maintain that: “Present-day violence is made far worse than it otherwise would be by the prevalence of weapons on our streets.”
That statement is true but meaningless: Yes, if all weapons were taken away, including knives, fists, etc. then there would be less violence.
But I’ve noticed that people who are willing to steal and kill don’t change their behavior because you tell them they aren’t allowed to have guns. They get them anyway — sometimes straight from the U.S. Government! (See the Fast and Furious scandal.)
We need sensible gun control measures in our nation to protect the American people from gun violence, a public health crisis.
It is sadly ironic that they consider gun violence a health crisis but are pro-abortion, including pro-taxpayer-funded abortion.
The NRA and their politicans in Congress want to expand the “rights” of gun owners so that they can carry weapons into churches and school yards across the nation.
These false teachers are apparently too busy apologizing to Muslims to follow the news about how Christians are getting killed around the world, including violence in their own churches. If someone wanted to kill Christians, what better place than a church on Sunday morning? Are the killers going to care if there is a law against taking guns into churches? I would be glad to have people armed and ready to defend the congregation.
Today The New York Times reports on the violence that has been caused by their victories at the state and local level. People of faith and mayors are fighting back against the NRA. As we approach the one year anniversary of the Tucson shootings it is time to double our efforts to stop gun violence in the United States.
The NYT article was purely speculative and ignored how overturning gun control laws has reduced crime.
This is classically bad reasoning by the false teachers. They claim to want to change people but consciously avoid sharing the real Gospel, which is the only biblical way to truly change hearts and minds. Of course you can count the people who get hurt by guns, but what they fail to consider is the law of unintended consequences: What happens when criminals know the victims are unarmed? Does that reduce or increase crime? How about the lives saved because of people who could defend themselves? And so on.
