Should a Christian own/carry a loaded gun?


I ask because the bible teaches us to trust in God for protection and safety, isn't owning a gun like saying you don't? More over, I don't thing God likes guns to begin with. First thing I think of is what would Jesus do? - He certainly wouldn't own a gun. He taught to turn the other cheek is someone strikes you.

    The page here says my answer has been "hidden due to negative feedback"? What negative feedback? The red -2 under my answer, or had someone reported me to some authority - I see no feedback at all to my answer. Certainly we can all share our view . ?

    I know people use this reasoning and I understand it, but at the same time there are other ways to protect your children - alarm systems being one.

    You're presenting flawed arguments and then validating your view on their premises; someone defending themselves against an attacker is not "two wrongs" - it's one wrong and one right. 3am? What about when you ARE in bed and they come into your home?

    That's how I feel, I don't want to shoot or kill someone else. There are ways to protect your family, such as alarm systems and even owning dogs. I think God would prefer us all to use owning a gun as a last resort, if that.

    If I shoot someone who was not invited in my house is not on me, but the fool that is in my house. I would only shoot if my family was threatened.

    Well said Old Sage. Most of us Christians don't remember what life was like before 64. You do and I've read about it at length. Anyone that understands what happens when financial systems break down understands that it is defending ones self and p

    certainly as long as it is not murder. plenty of scriptural examples

    and American Christians better get this sorted out soon because that is coming soon unless God intervenes.

    You are right - St. Peter carried a sword...even in the presence of Christ Jesus, the Son of God.

    I don't agree with hunting unless its for food. Hunting for sport, to me, is cruel.
