Odds ‘n Sods:


Should Christians be Encouraged to Arm Themselves? John Piper, chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, recently wrote an article challenging Jerry Falwell’s speech at Liberty University in a campus chapel service in which Falwell encouraged his students to obtain CC permits. Piper’s argument is centered around the concept of turning the other cheek. However, SurvivalBlog reader R.N. wrote in with an excellent refutation of Piper’s argument: “Should Christians lock their doors? Should Christians install home security systems? Should Christians dial 911? Should Christians vote for laws that protect the innocent? Christianity is not advanced through force, nor do we take revenge on our enemies. But these are not the reasons Christians arm themselves. We do so for the protection of the innocent (1 Tim 5:8) and it is hypocritical to oppose gun ownership while expecting others to use them on your behalf.” Definitely something to think about…
