Pastor, Get A Gun
When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are undisturbed. – Luke 11:21
Pastor, do you love your family? Of course you do.
In the passage above, Jesus compares Satan to a man ‘armed to the teeth’, a strong man. As long as no one attacks him, he’s secure in his possessions, which in this case, are souls that, at least currently, belong to him.
Yet when someone stronger comes along, Jesus, Satan is overpowered and loses his possessions because he is rendered powerless.
It’s a simple, powerful truth and also a very practical one. It is one that uses common sense. Common sense that clearly communicates the idea that you should also arm yourself to the teeth – literally.
Why? Well, do you love your family, your neighbor, your community, your state, your nation? Then get a gun and carry it with you. There are bad guys out there, owned by the devil, and they don’t care if you’re a nice Christian guy, a preacher, or that you wish no harm on anyone. They are in darkness, sin is their master, and, someday, perhaps, they may come after you or your family within your own home, or at any time. It may be a common thug, or even your government.
Either case, you owe it to your family at the very least, to protect them to the best of your ability. This is not only sound, biblical advice for pastors, it goes for every Christian.
So if you haven’t already, get a gun and a concealed carry permit. Learn to use your weapon responsibly and effectively, and be prepared.
