Today, people from other nations stand in horror at the disproportionate number of mass shootings that occur in the U.S.
As this video explains, America’s love affair with guns (of all kinds) is rooted not only in strong political views but also in heavily entrenched theological views.
Put simply, many American Christians believe that the right to keep and bear arms (again of all kinds, including assault rifles) is a “God-given” right.
But is this true? Are gun rights God-given?
Does the Prince of Peace desire that His followers bear arms so that they can gun down their enemies before the enemy can gun them down?
Are we to understand that the New Testament’s call for Christians to live a life motivated by “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” are also to be armed to the teeth (just in case?)
In this brief, but hard-hitting video, Bible teacher Jerry Robinson asks the tough questions that American Christians need to be asking themselves in this extremely spiritually deceptive hour.
