Perhaps its time to remind you all what happened to Jesus and what he said when the troops came out to arrest him.

All who draw the sword will die by the sword. Matthew 26:52-54

And, Do you not think I can call on my Father and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?

And, But how then would the scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen this way?

Saints!!! You ARE SHEEP MARKED FOR SLAUGHTER!!! Do not resist an evil person even if it means your own death!!!

Are we trying to protect something that perishes???

Enough of the Drama Queen act. If you don't like guns then don't buy one and shut up!

benfighter, you should be ashamed if you are a brother in Christ saying to a fellow believer to "shut up"

Not sure that anyone had read my previous post, for no one responded to it, so here it is...

Now here is my conflict, when I was vacationing in Florida a few years back I believe God prepared me for a physical attack from a kidnapper.

I was watching a program on self-defense, then I got bored and went for a bike ride, a car pulled in front of me, a man jumped out, pushed me down, grabbed me from behind and started dragging me to the car, everything from the self defense show started going through my mind, but because of the way he was holding me I could not use the techniques.

He pushed me in the car, slapped me, and then a vision appeared before me of my 3 young boys, my adrenaline heightened, my hands finally free, I screamed in his face, 'you will not take me from my kids!' and used an attack from the show, shouting, then gouging the eyes.  He moaned grabbed his face, I ran, got the license, he went to jail.

So....I guess if you have a leading from the Spirit to protect yourself, or maybe a desire to protect our citizens such as police or military, pray and ask God, for I do believe God was involved in all that happened that day.

So this is not a black or white answerer, we each need to take it God and see what He wants, we should always try to stop and evil person with the power of Jesus, and the last resort would be a weapon of injury, or death.

God bless Debrah... Concerning governing authorities who have rule over the kingdom of men. Romans 13 They bear the sword for your good. Its a deterent.

Further however this authority is misused! Pilate himself did all he could to release Jesus but because of public opinion washed his hands of it and gave him to the people. This misuse of his authority is found in 1 Corinthians 2:8

Therefore Jesus told Pilate, the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin. Pilate was not held guiltless. He gave in to public pressure AND HOW OFTEN DO WE SEE THAT INCREASING TODAY???

To beat off an attacker is not a sin Debrah. I am reminded of the prophet (Samson??)who was attacked by a lion and full of the Holy Spirit ripped it in pieces.

When your time comes its your time! But God delivers us from every evil attack and we continue to put our hope in him that he will continue to deliver us.

Debrah,

I read your post .... we had 'bad guys' kick down our frontdoor coming in the house with guns.

I fully understand your situation.  Glad to know your are with your kids....

I could not stand by and allow my family to be harmed.  The Scriptures are full of killing, war, liers, cheaters, just as in todays world.  Samson brought the house down.  Moses murdered.  

God gave me this life i will do all i can to preserve it, When He says thats 'it' NO man will stand in His way.

Debrah:

You sound like one of those self-proclaimed Christian women who has a problem with just about everything. I suspect the fact that most gun owners are men is part of the reason you are against firearm ownership.

If mostly women owned guns I'd bet good money that your attitude would be different.

At any rate, you don't get to preach to me or tell me to be ashamed nor do you have any say in whether or not I'm a believer.

I'm sorry you had to endure an attack like you described but that experience should be a lesson to you to consider purchasing a firearm and getting some training.

Benfighter i don't see how you got what you did from Debrah's post.  There is nothing preachy nor self proclaiming.     

a quote of Debrah's post ...

NO!
Christians should be humble peaceful types who would rather give up their life than take the life of another person. When I die, I am going to heaven. If I kill a person who is committing a crime he is likely going to hell. I don't want that to happen.

Yes it is much easier to shoot my food than to chase it down and stab it.

Owning a firearm is not synonymous with killing people. 

You guys need to get a grip.
