The 2nd Amendment: A Knife in A Gunfight
The knife nearly everyone is wielding at today’s O.K. Corral is the Second Amendment right to bear arms. As with all rights, this knife is easily licensed and limited.
Ted R. Weiland pastors Christian Covenant Fellowship in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and is the evangelistic head of Bible Law vs. The United States Constitution. In addition to presiding over an international audio ministry, he lectures throughout the United States, has appeared on television and radio, and has authored twenty books.
Despite its warning “shalt not be infringed,” the Second Amendment is the most infringed, licensed, and limited amendment of all twenty seven. And the day is probably coming when the Second Amendment will be repealed. This is the nature and danger of optional constitutional rights versus non-optional God-expected responsibilities, such as the following one:
“But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house [beginning first with spiritual protection and second with physical protection], he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8).
Listen to “The Second Amendment: A Knife in a Gunfight” recently preached at last month’s Springfield, Missouri Firearms and Freedom Symposium regarding the Biblical responsibility versus the constitutional right to bear arms. You can listen to it and an interview with Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, conducted with me on this same subject.
