As I read the stories of broken lives and stolen futures, my blood just boils. I want the kleptocrats in Washington, D.C. and the banksters in New York to pay. I want the pornographers and the pedophiles to pay. I want the corrupt judges and the corrupt lawyers to pay. I want the psychopaths running our intelligence services and corporations to pay. I want them all to pay.
I am white-hot at the evil that is happening, and the desire for vengeance boils in my blood. And, I would be seeking a way to be out there exacting that vengeance, …except for one thing.

The Gun and Jesus Christ
The standoff at the Bundy Ranch will probably turn out to be a watershed moment for most of us who are concerned about the growing evil that has been rearing its ugly head in America. Guns were drawn by both sides, and it was a miracle that men and women did not lose their lives.
Steve posted a link to a video on Monday that encapsulates the central question:

Lieutenant Colonel (ret.) Roy Potter knows exactly what he’s talking about.
What would have happened if even one BLM agent lost his life?
Or, maybe I should have asked a different question:
How many agents did Satan want dead on that day?
All of them.
And, we Christians almost gave Satan exactly what he wanted.
Does that sound like a good idea to you?
Let me ask you another question:
What did Jesus say about situations like this?
He said this:
But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. – Matthew 5:39-40
In the same chapter, Jesus said this about our purpose:
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. – Matthew 5:16
He also said this:
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. – Matthew 10:16
As the vile and filthy Luciferian kleptocrats in Washington D.C. send their wolves to bay at our doors, let me ask you this question:
What should we do?
Let me clarify that with a better question:
What would Jesus want you to do?
In fact, as they led Him away to His death…
What did the Supreme High Commander of the Armies of God do?
He allowed Himself to be sacrificed, and we will be remembering that sacrifice in every church, around the world – this Sunday.
A gun has only one purpose – to kill. If you buy a gun for any other reason in mind, then you are a fool. ( …okay, okay, unless you’re a nut for target practice.)
I believe that God allows us to kill in self defense, but you need to think about what God will say to you when you stand before Him – if you haven’t made sure to do everything possible to never be in a position to take a life. And, the rule for guns is this:
Never draw a gun, unless you intend to shoot.
Never shoot unless you intend to kill.
And, if the government comes to take you away… well, you know what Jesus did.
That One Thing
To me, the title of this article is an obscenity. The name of Jesus Christ should never share a title or a sentence with the word ‘gun’ – unless to prove a point.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:19-21
I really don’t want to release my right to take up arms against the evil of this world. I really don’t. I know that you don’t, either. But, I must keep telling myself that vengeance…
Really. Are you ready for this?
