After the issue in SC, I read an article where some say the cause was the fact they weren't armed. At the same Time, I couldn't imagine a Pastor or any other church member , killing someone ( even if it's in self defense) in cold blood.. Dead.. *throw a sheet over the dead body and resume Bible study* Tbh, it reminds me of David and Saul, when Saul was trying T harm David ...and one day he had the opportunity to kill him..but he didn't. I just wonder if you think it would be a lack of faith for the church to carry guns ? Also, a few more points... Wouldn't it look a bit odd, as a non violent organization to carry a weaon? Lastly, church folk tell us to have faith in this and that area... why wouldn't God protecting you be any different? (If it's not for the faith, it could be in your sleep, caused by a car accident..ect.. We all have our appointed time...IMO) I just wondered what you think of this; Alright let's get the discussion rolling..
