Actually- Rams you don't know who you are taking.
As a journalist I have- on two occasions- had a weapon pointed at me. In one case, back in 1994 when I was a producer- (and I know from your previous post that you will remember this) I was with a crew that traved to Chiapas to interview Subcomandante Marcos- who was the leader of a revelountary group called the Zapatistas. We were surronded- not just by machine guns- but by young kids holding machines guns.
There were times when I was really scared for my life, but I never wished that I was armed. All though- I did wonder why I wasn't paid more.
Would Christ carry a gun or would he turn to prayer. You may think that turning the other cheek is crap- I think it is the way of the Lord
Then you know what I speak. And I laughed so hard at your statement above, "Would Christ carry a gun or would he turn to prayer", as it is so amazing.
ANSWER: No, he would not. Since he is GOD in the flesh, he would kill all the people on Earth by water in the flood and save 6, then tell them, I'll do it again, watch the fire next time.
And lo, how possible could I "know who you are"?
And your tale, as a journalist, yes, I know exactly what you were seeing and doing and feeling, and it was not your time as the Lord protected you, perhaps as a journalist, with maybe numbers and not you just by yourself. Who knows, but the Lord does. You came out on the other side with no harm.
I will say if I had been there and someone would have started shooting, as a fellow American, I would grabbed a weapon, tackled you, held you down with me as protection and started "shootin' and lootin'"
till it was over, then introduce myself to you and ask, "You okay, partner......?"
Then, we would have discovered we were both in Jesus Christ. Would you then say, "you shot all those people and saved me......You are a murderer and filled with hateful sin......."
This one here above I have re-posted, mostly. And Anchorman's initial post also, in retort to me.
I am intrigued for you to address this as you see things.
