    Seems to me that if someone is aware that all politicians are crooks then they are paying attention and are aware of the issues.

    Absolutely. A man (or woman) has every right to defend their home and family, to the death if necessary.

    Or maybe it means he @BarnyFife is paying very close attention to them, but seeing no help for it from those supposedly in control... simply backs up and prays...! Is our God not able to accomplish His purposes?

    This is what I was talking about. People don’t panic buy guns and ammo when the conservatives are in power, because they don’t need to. But when the communists, err uh I mean democrats are in power they always go after your guns. Do you realize in the 1980’s you could go to the gun shop and buy things like Mac-10 machine guns and silencers? You used to be able to buy the same stuff our government buys. You still can but they cost a fortune because you have to get one made before 1986 I think and you have to pay a tax and pass a lengthy background check. The point is they always chip away at gun rights. I wouldn’t really care who is in power except the Democrats alway affect my life one way or another.

    it says a man should sell his cloak and buy a sword but since when does a sword constitute a gun? Swords are one thing Guns are another,

    another member pointed out that knife crime in my country use to be very high (not anymore) but just imagine how much worse that would be if you swapped a knife for a gun, two words... Blood bath!!

    Hi Stuart,

    The sword was the main weapon of defense when that was written. The sword has become the gun. The point of the passage is about defending one self. That hasn't changed whether it be with a sword or gun.

    I get it. Your anti-gun! Dually noted!

    yeah just so you know there is a difference between using a gun and using a sword, that is all.

    If I successfully defend myself, my family or my property with a sword or a gun it had the same effect.

    If I kill someone with a sword or a gun while defending myself they are still dead.

    Soooooo I am having trouble seeing the difference.

    ok so with that in mind you could also say the same about an Atom bomb, that is a weapon so what's the difference between that and a sword? or instead of a gun i will create an army of robots to defend my property, doesn't seem right, when is a sword not a sword?

    A sword is a sword it has a handle and is supposed to be used in hand to hand combat, a gun is not it is used in a less dignified way, stand back and pull the trigger. it is a harsh reality that people are willing to play God with a gun, i say replace all the guns with swords, put on your armour, take up your shield and helmet and then you are ready, I still say the greatest weapon of all time is the tongue though :) lol

    Sorry, I got the order wrong but I just thought about it and you're right about that, but as a whole Christian, I also accept the whole Bible - including the parts regarding wisdom, and that's all there is to it.
