Theologian: Christians Should Not Own Guns

411

To hear Barack Obama tell it, there are too many Americans clinging desperately to their guns and their Bibles. But if theologian Krish Kandiah has anything to say about it, that won’t be the case for long. According to him, Christians have an ethical obligation to lay down their arms.

Writing for Christian Today, Kandiah says, “The fact that the Constitution allows something does not automatically mean it would be appropriate for Christians to bear arms.” He cites legal protections for abortion and gay marriage as a way of showing that just because something is permitted by law doesn’t make it right.

“Perhaps instead,” Kandiah writes, “Christians might choose to lay aside their rights and even the pleasure they get from hunting to see fewer people die.”

Kandiah’s argument may resonate with liberal Christians who see firearms as a great societal ill, but it is unlikely to hit home with the majority of Americans gun owners. Certainly, it would be difficult to find a scriptural basis for the plea; the Bible is fairly clear about murder, but it has little to say about arming one’s self for personal protection. In fact, Jesus even makes it a point to tell his followers to go out and get a sword if they do not have one. Critics will say there’s a big difference between a sword and a gun, but it still puts Kandiah on shaky Biblical ground.

Of course, Kandiah is not making a scriptural argument so much as he is a plea for less violence. He draws a parallel to the Salvation Army, members of which choose not to drink because alcohol is such a common problem for the homeless people they are trying to help. And if there are Christians out there trying to help people recover from “gun addiction,” perhaps the analogy is apt. Otherwise, not so much.

Kandiah is correct when he suggests that having the legal right to do something is a poor justification. But to compare owning a gun with getting an abortion or marrying someone of the same sex is more than a little unfair. Christians – some, anyway – see these as acts of sin. Very few Christians would contend that gun ownership falls in the same category, even if they happen to support stricter measures of gun control. That would logically mean that weapon ownership of any kind constitutes a sin, and that’s too ridiculous for even the most liberal Christians to buy.

One could even say that Christians have a responsibility to own guns, especially those who have a duty to protect their families. Some will think this suggestion is just as ludicrous as Kandiah’s, but don’t be so quick to dismiss it. The Bible is clear about a man’s role when it comes to being a good husband and father. Does not the head of the household carry the burden of keeping his family safe from harm? What does God think of a father who is derelict in this duty?

In the end, this is something that every American – Christian or otherwise – must decide for themselves. If you think that owning a gun makes it more likely that you will murder someone or turn the barrel against yourself, then perhaps you should follow Kandiah’s suggestion. If, on the other hand, you feel confident in your ability to bear arms without bringing harm to yourself, your family, or your community, then there is no reason to feel guilty about it. In its way, Kandiah’s argument is just as wrongheaded as the liberal push for overbearing gun control. There are no easy answers when it comes to saving American lives, but surely taking guns away from the good guys is not the way to do it.

    Ohhhhhh so contrary to this it is Christians who need guns. They should have their churches guarded with armed guards along with Jews and their places of worship.

    We will see Muslim Terrorism in this country and the worst thing is for Americans not to be armed. Sitting ducks. Look at the ME when those people get hold of guns they killed their murderers ISIS.

      Have to say sometimes you have to deal with an adversary in the way they understand ISIS for example eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth they understand that Personally I think we should NUKE Them that sure cured Japan and ended WW2

            OMG, what a creative idea . . . to even think about the results of such an action boggles the mind. Elmcqueen3, you officially have my vote for Secretary of State. Lol!

            They would not know what to do.

        2. Dan59 says

          Forget that, the best weapon in the arsenal are neutron bombs. They have the same killing effect of traditional nuclear warheads but only to living organisms. They don’t cause massive destruction and within an hour they dissipate so you can roll on in and not worry about fallout. The Israelis developed a full compliment of these in the late 70’s when Carter rejected them here and they will use them.

          1. James Maxwell says

            dadgum it, I had forgotten about those until you mentioned them. Very effective
            kills ever thing, leaves building and touched and no residual radiation to stop
            your from going in shortly afterwards.

      2. donemyhomework says

        In actuality there was more at work than the nukes.

      I’d like to see some isis heads on the ground, they think they’re immune from retaliation? They really are ignorant!

  2. highwayman says

    I hope the preacher reads this comment of mine. If he does, I want him to know this,, take you self rightous bull shit and shove it up your holy ass so far you cannot find it. You preacher are a stupid man. Tell Isis to lay down their weapons and if they do,, I will drop mine. I would like to see if you would be so self righteous if he was sitting in his sofa one night along with a daughter or wife and bang the door goes down and you may have been able to stop it what happen after that,, but oh! I forgot,, you gave up your weapon didn’t you? Keep your crap thoughts like this to yourself. We have no enough crazies to deal with as it is. Stupid is as stupid does.

    Just because he is a self proclaimed theologian doesn’t mean he is a Christian or is intelligent.

            #2 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
            #3“These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and
            Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity
            of all human beings.”
            #4“America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition.
            Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and
            progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
            #5 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

          12. Harold Sammons says

            The only thing that the muslims did for America was attack ships, sell their own country people as slaves, take prisoners and hold for ransom; any thing to profit and to attack any body that came within their grasp, to torture and kill!

          15. FBA says

            If anyone desires a wakeup call as if we need one) he could do lots worse than to read an assessment by a former moslem terrorist, Walid Shoebat now a converted Christian. He pulls no punches on the evil of Islam and its prophet going so far to say that mohammed was the antichrist in the flesh whom Satan will “resurrect” in the letter days as the false prophet. The mahdi hat the moslems are expecting to return to earth as their messiah is no other than Satan. Shoebat gives proof from the qu’ran and hadiths that proves the lie to most of what you say in your post – i.e. that islam means peace (I KNOW these are not your words, you have just listed them for us from what moslem apologists say to fool us into believing such tripe.)

            The last thing moslems should want is that we awake from our slumber and really find out about their satanic religion based upon ancient paganism. Read Shoebat’s “God’s War On Terror” – you’ll wish everyone could.

          16. KLH6 says

            Johnnie Moore’s book Defying ISIS is excellent & hes an evangelical Christian whose spent a lot of time in the Middle East. He’s very knowledgeable about the history & he, too is brokenhearted about how Christianity is being eradicated. One thing ISIS doesn’t tell you is that even kids 16 & younger are not rejecting Jesus & therefore are beheaded. He also said radical Muslims are already throughout the US & waiting to increase their numbers. Meanwhile they are training in camps that FBI, etc. know exist.I just hope I’m as brave as many of the Christians & Kurds over there. I had the privelege of watching one video showing a couple of ISIS men weeping & begging for their life. It seems someone had relieved them of their AK’s and any other weapons. Thry are basically cowards if they don’t have there guns & knives. Let them fight “mano a mano” with one of our military guys. It could be a new entertainment sport.

          17. FBA says

            I’ll try to find a copy. The truth about ISIS is that they are not aberrant moslems. but rather they are just doing what their founder, the antichrist mohammed commanded them to do. That is why there are no “moderate” moslems, just silent ones until they come into control.

            Christians in that land are being martyred at an alarming rate. We should do all we can to support those who remain alive there.

            Shalom.

          18. KLH6 says

            Before that I had read Jay Sekulows book”Rise of ISIS-A tthreat we can’t ignore.” Johnnie Moores book comes at it from adifferent perspective. I got my copy in the grocery store for less than $10 in paperback. It has resources in the back. It was worth it & I will use to refresh my history. One of things that’s so sad is all the history they are destroying, like the whole city of Nineveh & a World Heritage Site. Whst’s the UN doing-Nada. If Christians were slaughtering Muslims, there would be the loudest outcry you ever heard. I also saw Johnnie Moore on someones show but it wasn’t very long interview. I like that he goes into the history of that region, so we can see how everything got so screwed up. He plans to write another book that will cover a lot more things & be a much longer book.

            No, they don’t! Anyone that still believes in Obama is too big a fool to ever get it. I am no genius, but even I could figure out what Obama is from day one. What does that say about those that believe he is the 2nd coming? Tells me they should be kept in a rubber room.

            A lot of people KNEW that his socialist policies would almost certainly fail but they felt that we had to TRY a black president anyway.
            .
            After David Dinkins was elected the first black Mayor of New York City (1990-1993), and was replaced by Rudy Giuliani (1994-2001), the city turned sharply to the right in terms of their practical politics – and it worked, crime was greatly reduced and the economy improved markedly.
            .
            It was only last year (21 years later), that the people finally forgot Dinkins failed policies and elected DeBlasio, a hard left White man who is married to a black woman..

          26. Douglas Smith says

            “Try a black president anyway:? Don’t blame ‘black’ for this MISS FIT. He’s a 1/2 breed ! not white – not black. but for sure a commie socialist America destroying POS !

          27. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            No offense to “blacks” but I know a TON of people that voted for him SIMPLY BECAUSE – HE WAS A BLACK MAN… They felt obligated to give him a chance. Stupid apologists. I wrote in my vote for “Batman” since I felt all my options were a total joke so I figured I would play along with the comedy… And no I don’t feel that I wasted a vote because it made local news. I feel I expressed my disgust quite well and publicly. Obama’s election is about as impressive as Mike Tyson’s boxing career… Sure he seemed a winner when compared to a bunch of jobbers. Get him on a real debate, no holds barred, with Ben Carson (or anyone with half a functioning brain) and they will shred Obama (and jokers like him) to pieces!!!

          28. KLH6 says

            Most blacks when asked why they voted for Obama, said”Because he is black.” I like the color green but I’m not voting for a Martian just because he’s green. We desperately need to teach critical thinking skills but I think we might be too late.

          29. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            Yeah, I know. I watched a video on YouTube where they went around to election booths and asked people if they voted for Obama and why. Most were black and responded “because he was black,” others (mostly white) said dumb things like, “I believe the White House should be an equal opportunity employer,” or classics like, “After six-hundred years of slavery in the US Obama deserved a chance,” (I don’t know if Obama was a slave for 600 years in the US, serving originally under Chief Dances with Caribou before serving Chris Columbus or what – the miracle is a voter doesn’t realize how old our nation is even roughly)…

            Critical thinking… Well I think most of the commentators on sites like this need to get together, critically think, and help direct this nation before we need to begin Civil War II — which I believe is inevitable now anyway…

            I also think we need to regulate voting with a basic test of common knowledge US history and politics before allowing the ignorant to vote. If they don’t understand US Law, History, Foreign Policy, and Commerce they shouldn’t be allowed to vote if they have no opinion on matters concerning the nation. This isn’t American Idol dammit — the office of president is not a popularity poll.

          30. KLH6 says

            Actually, I don’t watch too many American videos. I tend to watch Israeli videos with links to what is actually going on in Middle East. They provide links to MEMRI and others, I’ve seen things that every American should know. Anyway, I saw them asking people just randomly on the street. I cringe every time they ask Americans any historical question. Our liberal educational system
            has taught them little useful info. I watched a video yesterday about a man from Kuwait who found out he was Jewish on his mother’s side. He decided to check it out. He went to Germany & studied WWII history. He said the Middle Eastern countries do not teach anything about WWII. I knew PLA & Hamas don’t. It wouldn’t suit their agenda, which is Israel didn’t exist until after WWII. Ignorance is not bliss. I just read Johnnie Moore’s book “Defying ISIS”. We will be fighting for many decades to come. I’m sorry we have a Muslim president whose loyalties are so screwed up. What’s that saying “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” It may not be exact, I have some memory issues. After 38 years as an RN on busy cardiac floor doing 12 shifts my health was shot & I ended up on disability with severe fibromyalgia, which led to multiple medical issues. I have trouble staying focused. Sorry. I agree with everything you said. The last paragraph, my husband & I have said often, as well. Slavery was started by the British. Are they going to sue them for reparations, too? Thank you for your service. I can’t imagine your frustration with this whole administration. As a Christian I can see we’re in the crosshairs of our own government. At 63 it’s something I had hoped never to see. One of the most uplifting videos I saw were the Marines doing “These are the Days of Elijah” complete with hand motions & a Marine touch added. It was in a mess hall I think. Now they’d probably be court martialed. I’ve taken too much time already. My 91 yr old dad was Army Air Corp & then Air Force Reserves but you guys kick butt! I’m glad you’re on our side.

          31. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            The truth about slavery:

            American slavery was started by the British, also the majority of the heavy labor and frequently abused slaves were white (like the galley slaves and the sexual escorts). However, modern slavery was started by the North African Muslims who first captured and sold Italians.

            Only 2% of white Americans (post Revolutionary War) owned slaves, and of all the slaves being brought across the Atlantic by the slavers (which were not Americans but Mauritanian slaver pirates) only about 5% of the African slaves were sold in the land that is the modern US. 95% of those slaves were sold to the Hispanics and Native American people in the Central and Southern Americas and were treated very poorly (estimated about 35% to 40% were beaten or worked to death), yet no one accuses the Hispanics or Native Americans of being these horrible abusive slave owners. Finally, “whites” were the first people to begin national level abolition of slavery. Sure one or two towns here and there did it prior… but, I am talking the full abolition – not bans on trade, reductions, serfdom, indentured servitude, etc., I mean all out abolition with no return to slavery or serfdom after (it doesn’t count if you do it again later).

            Whith this information you can plainly see that mostly “white-Christian ruled” nations were able to take a harsh stand against slavery and stayed on the wagon with it, whereas many others, as you will see have been failing to control the issue.

            Iraq (1836 Britian), Iran 1929, Syria 1954, and China 1955 did well for a short period but have recently been increasing their slave populations again in the 2010 thru 2015 years as studies have shown. China has shown a 287% rise in slavery since 1998. Iran’s slave population increased 202% sharply since 2012. Iraq’s slave numbers have jumped 183% since 2008. While Syria has shown 116% increase since 2002. These nations that were formerly doing well are severely backsliding.

            Today it is estimated that there remain to be about 28.4 million slaves and 18.1 million serfs/bondage servants, 7.8 million forced laborers, and roughly 2.7 million new slaves being trafficked each year. The average price of a slave today is $340 and $1800 for a trained sex slave. One can purchase bondage slaves from Africa for about $40-$50 each. The slave trade showed a $91.2 billion profit margin in 2007. The average slave generates about $3175/yr in profits and roughly $30,000/yr from sex slaves. About 40% of today’s slaves are trafficked sex slaves popularly sold by Africans, Chinese, Indians, and Russians.

            In Islamic Mauritania and in many parts of Northwest Africa you are still likely to be captured by slaver pirates and trafficked and sold in other nations even now in 2015. Roughly 2% of men and women travelling through these areas are captured each year and sold into slavery most commonly to the Africans, Arabs, Indians, Russians, or Chinese.

            The absolute worst strongholds for modern slavery are:

            (percentages reported in April of 2015)

            Mauritania, Africa (4.2% total pop. slaves)
            Senegal, Africa (3.9% total pop. slaves)

            Many of these nations resell their slaves to the Central and South Americans. Places like:

            Suriname, S. America (0.35% total pop. slaves)
            Oaxaca Mexico, C. America (0.35% total pop. slaves)

            Paraguay, S. America (0.22% total pop. slaves)
            Uruguay, S. America (0.21% total pop. slaves)

            But no one in the American “black community” wants to beat “evil slave owning” Hispanics and burn their towns down either.

            The other major region of slavery is the Near East, Middle East, and the Russian/Slovak States. These account for populations of 0.12% (Turkey) to 0.38% (Serbia and Bosnia) and cover the entire Confederation of Russian states.

            Ironically, the truly “white nations” (US, Canada, EU, Australia) are the only ones living up to their obligations to the treaties of the abolition of slaves. The majority of slaves these nations see are sex slaves (87.6% white women and children kidnapped from Europe, the United States, and Russia typically by Russian and Ottoman slave traders) being brought in and sold to the pimps for prostitute training.

            Here is a map of where slavery is still rampant in the world. (stats a little old Oct 2013 stats)

            Carson and Trump would make a great ticket, if there are enough Americans who aren’t on the dole and appreciate they got their money the right, honest way to vote for them. And another great thing is that neither is a politician, just as the Founding Fathers wanted it to be.

            Violating the constitution at every turn did reduce crime in NYC. Stepping on the poor and oppressed did lower crime. However the cost of doing that will haunt NY for many decades. It is sort of like Haiti 25 years ago. A terrorist government that killed people without trials and used the worst tortures did lower crime. It also caused poverty and all kinds of horrors to break out. Now a Haitian that is not poor is at risk of death just because people may sense that they are not in poverty.

            Which is why we should be flooding the White House lawn in the troves of thousands and physically drag him out of the White House, slap an “Evicted” sticker on the door and let our military run the country until the end of his term! (because Biden is NOT better)

            Do you know how much we are going to have to pay to keep him safe (and for how long) AFTER he is out of office?

            He is such a joke that NO ONE takes him seriously, except the indoctrinated Libtards and ghetto fabulous fools.

          52. Aldo nova says

            I’m in agreement when can we do it?

          53. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            We need more patriotic citizens like you Aldo! We need a group of about 1,000 so they can’t arrest or slaughter us without angering the U.N./NATO – can we get 998 more volunteers!?

            I really am in the process of drawing up a petition to send to our Joint Chiefs of Staff. (it would be awesome if I could get sites like this, WND, Blaze, Patriots and Politics, The Right to Bear, etc., to host my petition)

            I am deeply sickened by what is happening here in the US as I know all my brothers and sisters in arms are, especially those that had the privilege to return from hell over there to hell over here. I know our Generals must want to strangle this man a dozen times a day. Damn commy disrupting all our DoD and DHS national defense strategies and making love to our nation’s enemies. You know they want to give him a .45cal lobotomy.

            Our military and law enforcement needs to round up all these traitors, the flag stompers, the racebaiters, the illegals, the rioters, the terrorists (including but not limited to Al Sharpton, Mark Morial, Jesse Jackson, Luis Farrakhan, Robert Seale, Rashid and Mona Khalidi, Ali Abunimah, Roula Allouch, John Abizaid, Ahmed Al-Shehab, Nihad Awad [this jackhole threatened to sue me for slander one time on Facebook – I swear to it – told him this is the U.S. buddy, ain’t got Sharia Law here yet pal. No joke. He is a real A-wad.], Carla Hill, James “Jimmy” Jones, Masoud Nassimi, Ibrahim Hooper, Robert Rubin, Corey Saylor, James George Abourezk, David Rubenstein, Richard Haas, Safa Rifka, Assad Jebara, Tawfiq Barqawi, Mustapha Farrakhan, Ishmael Muhammad, Ava and Darrius Muhammad, David Muhammad, Peter Ackerman, Zoe Baird, Tom Brokaw, Alan Blinder, Mary Bois, Martin Feldstein, Nick Burns, Laurence Fink, Susan Hockfield), and anyone else involved with these Muzzie sellouts or their cohorts or organizations, or anyone else that supports terrorism, terrorists, or is funneling money into ISIS coffers — and execute these traitors for high treason! The US FBI and CIA have dirt on these guys enough to sentence death or exile a million times over but Obama ties their hands. Damn dictator! [anger burning my soul] But, yeah – a short list of confirmed US enemies masquerading as persons of charitable organizations funding the terrorists and bull-horning their propaganda. It sucks!

            We have succumbed to so much contrapropaganda from the socialists, fascists, and religious fanatic terrorists in the past decade it is staggering. What is worse is that many people ARE literally stupid enough to believe it. The U.S. is so quickly abandoning the “Law of the Land” and our rights, freedoms, and civil liberties that we as a nation have worked hundreds of years to secure and sacrificed many a fighting men (and women) to retain. So many sacrifices. Family members and friends… NOT FOR THIS SH*T! It’s so pathetically sad…

            Obama has to be the biggest fail president the United States ever seen! He makes Carter, Nixon, Hoover, Harding, Pierce, Fillmore, and Johnson look like model citizens. (probably if you combined all their failings into one – he certainly squandered more money than all of them combined – damn crook)

            I can feel the forefathers rolling over in their graves while we sleep at night… it ripples through my mattress… I can hear their eternal groans…

            I have so much detestable anger inside me anymore I have to choke it back while writing these comments to keep from crying. Coming from a guy that seen children exposed to sarin and radiation (like 5-9 grays exposure) and I even had minor sulphur mustards exposure (doctors said if it weren’t for my unnaturally large lungs I’d probably be disabled, lost about 1/4 of my lungs – I do however constantly feel like I need to cough or clear my throat, but I am learning to ignore it now), more headless bodies than I can count, and people blowing themselves up like insane exploding lemmings, then the murder scenes, suicide jumpers, and other “clean-up jobs” here in the U.S. — it really means something to make me want to cry.

          54. Laura Americanpatriot Westfall says

            I would stand right there by your side to remove this assbag, but 1000 will NEVER be enough. You will need a crowd like was there for the 9-11 march on D.C. I was there for that, and although the alphabet networks reported that a couple of thousand people showed up for the rally (even FOX disappointed me on their reporting of this) There was close to 2 million people there. It was like a ground swell that morning heading to the rally at the capital building. That capital police said they have NEVER seen such a huge rally. WE CLOSED DOWN THE CITY AND THE !!! That had NEVER happened before. That is the kind of crowd that we need to go force this traitor out of OUR White House. This is the size crowd that they can’t overwhelm or arrest. A crowd of only 1,000 they can overcome and will. I very much relate to your statement of physically feely and hearing our founding fathers rolling over in there graves and groaning. And yes I have shed many tears over the state of our CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. I ADORE this beloved country of mine, and watching her die before my eyes is killing me.

          55. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            Yes, it is tearing me apart inside…

            This morning I heard that US/Iraqi forces have lost Fallujah, Mosul, and Ramadi and I JUST HEARD (literally moments ago) that ISIS issued a statement that they will capture Baghdad and Karbala next. Obama has been ignoring the need for more troops. It says that most soldiers their just abandoned their posts, dropped their rifles, put on civilian clothes and walked away as groups of over 30,000 well armed ISIS troops stormed the cities and overtook the combined forces outposts… They estimate they have acquired over $1/2bil in cash, thousands of firearms, mostly American military weapons, not to mention momentum and logistics we had deprived them of. They reported that a majority of the money and weapons are being smuggled to Syria!

            You see! Friggin Ayatollah Ali Khamenei! The one Obama prostrates himself to and wants to sell nuclear tech to! This guy, it is all going to him! Ugh! It burns me up so damn bad!

            I doubt they could ever retake Baghdad, with Victory Base Complex there and all, but if they did, the Middle East is lost…

            This man is crushing the spirit of the United States.

            My eyeball is twitching…

            I gotta go… lunch break.

          56. ILJ says

            1000 in a single major city would be extinguished within a day – we need millions

            While you’re at it, lets get rid of the UN. A worthless organization for sure. Hamas & Hezbollah aren’t terrorisrs. They sre ginanced by Iran. Valerie Jarrett is Irans biggest supporter. So our commander in chief was born in Iran to American parents. But admits she is of the Muslim faith. Sure let’s bring the enemy home to our shores. God help the next administration. We’ve been set back 50 yrs! Al-Bagdadi himself (head of Caliphate) said Islam is a religion of war not peace. So you liberals who want peace, why don’t you take them some cookies & go sing Kumbaya? Let me know how that works for you.

            Obama isn’t anything. He is an unprincipled person that is whomever he needs to be at the time to get what he wants.

          84. glorybe2 says

            And just how could you know the depth of President Obama’s Christian faith? When he took office the right wing accused him of listening to the wrong type of Christianity. When that failed to drag him down they tried to accuse him of being a Muslim. And just how do you explain that the man still attends a christian Church? He is not running for election. He could adopt any strange faith he liked. If he wanted he could publicly take up voodoo and slaughter chickens on the White house lawn while chanting phrases in Creole.

        2. Sarah Meador says

          He claimed Christianity as his faith in the beginning, but it’s becoming pretty clear which camp he’s really in. Definitely NOT a follower of Christ – you can see that much by his poor stewardship. Stewardship is something Jesus taught about pretty frequently.

          1. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

            You can see that by him requesting a black cloth to cover the cross at religious universities and schools where he made speeches. His brother Malik Obama is the Muslim Brotherhood’s Finance Officer.

            Then there are these:

            Truth seems undeniable because Christians don’t dabble in other religious faiths if they are truly Christian.

        I can think of no part of the bible that commands christians to be victims

      4. Benny New says

        To not defend yourself is tantamount to suicide, which is a sin. This “theologian” does not know what he is talking about. I have read the entire Bible and studied it extensively. There is no scriptural basis for his nonsense.

    2. The redhawk says

      I am sure that this IDIOT was thinking about the Unarmed CHRISTIANS that are being Slaughtered in Iraq, Syria, and other Arab countries since they are Unable to defend themselves… Or the Headinass Idiot is a paid TOOL of the LYING OBAMA KLAN…

      1. Tyrannys_enemy says

        He’s a UK citizen…”Before his appointment as Executive Director: Churches in Mission for the UK Evangelical Alliance, Dr Krish Kandiah was the Director of the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics”

        2. Victor Archuleta says

          Just looking at “Whazzizname’s” picture made my turned my stomach. To erase the rising anger I composed a prayer that provides great relief. I consider it equal to a machine gun. Here’s a short version that equals the more handy revolver:

          The Bible teaches that the first weapon of our warfare is prayer. Whenever “Whazzizname” or the paid agitators reveal themselves, use this easy to carry weapon, Psalm 5:10 -: Destroy him, O God, let him and his followers fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, for they have rebelled against Thee.

    4. PayTheMan says

      wow… your comment reveals that you don’t know much about the guy (and i didn’t either until i looked him up). but… like him or not, he has some impressive credentials including being the head of the largest group of evangelical theologians in europe (ain’t so shabby): http://www.krishk.com/bio/… so… self-proclaimed hardly does his record justice. we must be careful about denigrating those with whom we disagree… they may have some knowledge up their sleeves that allows them to understand/know things we may never.

      1. joe says

        None of that means a damn thing when what comes out of his mouth is so stupid.

        1. PayTheMan says

          I guess it means that a lot of other theologically thoughtful people do not think he is stupid. When a lot of experts think one thing… I always find it,wise to give them an ear… And then decide for myself… But i weigh the views of experts heavily. Maybe you use other means of forming your views… But my way has served me well for a while. Good luck.

          1. joe says

            wow so just roll over to what he says because is a so called expert. I am not that weak and I have more self respect so it is you that needs the good luck because with an attitude like that you can and will be controlled.

          2. PayTheMan says

            i don’t roll over nor bend over to any authority or expert… but i do listen carefully to what they have to say when they know more than i do about their given area of expertise. i am know enough to know how much i don’t know…. and if this guy studies theology for his entire life’s work…well…. like him or not… i will pay some attention when he talks about theology. now, that said, if he talks about carburetors… i will put my chips on my mechanic and whatever he has to say.

          3. joe says

            Since theology is all based on fantasy, opinion and myths it is not too hard to be an expert on it so he is qualified for what , story telling? If he says people should lay down their guns and surrender he is a weak worthless POS period.
            Only a total moron would think less people will die if hunters put down their guns or if law abidding citizens put down thier guns, these are not the people that are killing other people. This guy is a dimwit and no one should pay any attention to him, expert yea right and expert liar perhaps.

          4. PayTheMan says

            you are confusing religion and theology. religion may well be based on fantasy formed from deep psychological need and poor understandings of science and the world around (i happen to agree with you) but theology is the systematic study of religions and the theories that inform them. a theologian is not necessarily a believer. in terms of laying down guns… this guy lives in europe where they chose NOT to go down the road of tens of millions of guns out in the public willy nilly. in fact, in many european countries, local police don’t carry guns. so the notion that a good guy with a gun is a good thing ONLY applies to where there are lots of bad guys with guns. in countries (most of them in the world) where guns just can’t be found… keeping guns out IS a safe way to go. If the government is problematic with its own people… then there’s probably a different story. So, your comments, joe, are so steeped in a US mindset that you can’t see the wisdom of his comment when applied to other nations. (That is what this site tries to do: dumb down national and international conversations into little pissing matches. And the site is rather expert at that.) thanks for writing.

          5. joe says

            You are sadly miss informed as the FACTS prove beyond a doubt that more guns in the hands of law abidding citizens means far less crime period. England’s violent crime rate went up 40% since the gun ban. Canada has spent hundreds of millions trying to take guns and it has done NOTHING to reduce crime. The anti gun nutjobs are only spouting lies and twisted figures they care nothing about the truth when it comes to firearms. All they care about is trying to take them away from people with the delusional thought that some how all will be better when in fact no where on the planet has that been proven to be true. And I am not confusing anything the study of fairy tales is still the study of fairy tales he may as well be researching unicorns and leprechauns. This is the problem with the anti gun wackos they know NOTHING yet they fight for it they are either very stupid or very lazy too lazy to research the real facts that is pretty sad.They just blindly accept the garbage and lies the main stream media spews as truth it is a sign of a weak mind.

          6. PayTheMan says

            I live ins a state with open carry laws. I have to,trust that all these concerned, an/or fearful and/or paranoid people who are packing are mature, stable, good marksmen, and had a really good day. Give me one good reason i should have continuous and solid confidence in all those gun carriers. I dont give a crap about statistics… If my kid gets hit by a well intended stray bullet..” All the stats in the world dont mean shit to me.

          7. joe says

            So it is you that should decide who is responsible enough huh I see how that works. You have no say so when it comes to other peoples rights so live with it or get out of my country you are paranoid and delusional. You have no facts only fear that you get from the media

    5. JeanneD says

      Well, he’s not my theologian !

    6. tinkerunique says

      Al Sharptongue is a “theologian”, which means “talker”, which is NOT a good thing. Al talks a lot but actually says little except “hate” and “destroy”.

      1. Virgil Ferguson says

        The top Muslim preachers are theologians . If I were a “theologian” I wouldn’t want to be called one !

    7. ILJ says

      Jesus himself had major issues of the theologians of his day any one recall the Pharisees or Saudacees

    8. El Lobo Solo says

      THE purpose of higher education is to educate the common sense out of people & create the illusion that they can live in a Utopia fashioned by rhetoric. That explains the ‘sweet nothings’ that men like the Theologian speak.

      1. Virgil Ferguson says

        I agree completely, Lone Wolf . As if their parents weren’t ignorant enough to send them to those schools .

  5. Ddenney1 says

    Totally disagree! I do not want to kill anyone but I do not want anyone killing me or my family!

    1. joebabe says

      So, tell me, how do you expect to stop anyone from killing you or your family? Let’s say you just finished saying your evening prayers and several non-believers break through the front door of your home. They have evil intent and threaten you and your wife and children with great bodily harm or death. Tel us which prayer you would use to stop the rape and pillage………… Fool, godless people don’t respond to kum by ah…….or haven’t you been paying attention to TV news from all over the world!

      1. kotoc says

        Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I think Ddenney1 was referring to disagreeing with Kandiah (the person mentioned in the article), NOT the writer of the article.

        1. joebabe says

          Forgive ME! But I was referring toDdenney’s statement that HE didn’t want to kill anybody…..I was not taking issue with the writer at all.

          1. kotoc says

            Perhaps it would be good if you go back and re-read the article, his response, your response and then mine and yours AGAIN…. just to clarify a few things that you might have been too rushed to notice.

          2. joebabe says

            Get it! Got it! Good! Thanks!

        2. joebabe says

          Got. It! Good!

  6. PPTA says

    He is no theologian. He is a Far Left Paid Democrat Troll. Just like
    Gruber was. The man who brain washed us unto thinking Obama are was a good deal.

    1. Dan59 says

      Never convinced me. I remember from the moment I heard about him running for the Senate and the Republicans rushed to get a candidate to oppose him that he had the sign of Satan upon him and that he would ascend seemingly without opposition nd that is what happened. From the very beginning he was a dangerous man because he IS a pawn of Satan. I’m not so sure he is anything other than a Satanic tool, if he is Muslim, he flies in their faces by being gay and fully supporting LGBT causes including gay marriage. He darn sure isn’t a Christian and he hates Jews. The one category left, he’s Satanic with the goal of using confusion to bring the whole world down burning.

  7. red55bird says

    I think we need to fine out were this theologian lives and put up a sign in his front yard that reads: This home owner has no gun, please feel free to enter home and rob me and rape my wife thank you.

  8. Robert E Bezanson says

      In the war. dumbass

      1. badagliacco says

        No… ALL THE TIME DUMBASS!!

        1. Valor says

          Jimmy King isn’t bright enough to understand we ARE at war. At war with Islam, at war with criminals, and at war with an out of control government. Sadly, he isn’t alone, far too many Americans fit that description.

          1. OSAMA OBAMA says

            What?? That Ft. Hood massacre was workplace violence. Never mind he shouted “Aloha Snackbar” before he murdered our innocent service people and civilians. Our puke, maggot gov’t. prohibits our heros in uniform from carrying on a military base. Would have save many lives that day!!!

        2. Mark Lahti says

          I’m really sorry to have to destroy that false perception. I was in the Army for eight years. Some of that time prior to the end of the Vietnam war and some of it after. All during that time overseas or at home, military personnel are not allowed to carry weapons on or off base unless their job requires it. That seems like a very ambiguous statement considering that the first job of all military personnel is to take up arms as soldiers sworn to defend our country from foreign or domestic sources. Yet it is very clear in all military bases that unless you are placed into a position where you would need to use your weapon it was not on your person during routine daily activity. Some very obvious exceptions being MP’s or corrections personnel. So, the Major down there in Texas being fully aware of that felt quite sure of his success in his holy war against the infidels on his base and tried to murder as many of them as he could before the MP’s got there. Just like in any American city an Army base is a community with men, women, children, and visitors coming and going all the time. When a crime of violence or any other crime is being committed and the MP’s are called just as the police would be called in your community they are there after the fact. This does not really address the topic of this blog but just an attempt to set the record straight about the weapon issue on base. As far as that topic is concerned I believe that every person has the right to defend themselves and others from harm by whatever means available. Two thousand years ago that would have been a sword, a bow and arrow, a spear, whatever. Today that means a gun or knife. Maybe some experience with a martial art form of some type. Whatever you are comfortable with. When people around here and elsewhere are being shot without provocation or for no particular reason then I choose to carry a gun. Our local Sheriff here in Milwaukee, WI county suggests the same. Further indicating that training and familiarity with the weapon are a must.

      2. OSAMA OBAMA says

        Puke! Sissies hate guns and think that “GUN FREE ZONE” sign will protect them from the libTURD voter thugs. LMAO!!

    2. OSAMA OBAMA says

      God Bless and keep your father, sir!

  9. Davard says

    There seems to be a strong desire by our president to keep increasing our Muslim population or haven’t you heard about the Burmese Muslim refugee problem yet.. So what if he attended Reverend Wright’s Christian church for 20 or so years, if you can’t see his favoring of Islam, you are blind as a bat. Just because some liberal talks derisively about “conspiracy theories” doesn’t mean they aren’t true. It just means he wants you to think that and if you do, you are as stupid as he hopes you are..

    1. elmcqueen3 says

      The only reason Obama attended Rev. Wright’s church services is because he relished and enjoyed the Reverend’s continual hateful attack’s upon the United States…to quote Reverend Wright… “God Damn the United States”…Obama just couldn’t get enough of such demeaning and hateful words ushered in reference to this country by Rev. Wright…even Michelle Obama was overheard at a flag raising ceremony at the WH…”All this for a god damn flag?”…with which her husband nodded to the afirmative…If anyone believes the Obama’s are Christians I have some water front property in Arizona I’d like to sell to these same believers…God Bless the USA.

      1. Peggie says

        He also enjoyed the companionship of the other homos who attended. Don’t forget the
        three who came forward, and are now no longer living!!

      2. Jonathan Brooks says

        There was a second reason. Obama, lifetime member of the Big Country Bath house in Chicago, enjoyed the strange, but knew he needed a wife and family to get far in Chicago politics, and Rev. Wright was well known for arranging marriages to his women practicioners, who would be good beards for the elite down low men.

    2. donemyhomework says

      Obama is doing the same thing that Muhammad did in Medina. More Muslims equal more trouble…and in the end it will be a civil war in every state of the union. They’re just biding their time and increasing their strength. All you have to do is look at what’s happening in Europe, Britain, and Sweden. Uncontrolled immigration of hostiles.

    3. Dan59 says

      Rev. Wright isn’t truly a Christian either so what Obama got there was just more hatred and Devil worship.

  10. phil says

      How can you chop off a Christians head if they’re armed, it worked out really well for them in Iraq I wonder how he’d feel if his granddaughter was placed in front of him while a ten year old Muslim slit her throat!

  12. johnanaguski says

    Here is an e-mail sent in to the VFW magazine by James Thomas “During the Battle of Hamburger Hill in May 1969, I encountered a Chaplain at the battalion CP. I noticed he was carrying a pistol and asked him why. I will never forget his response. ” God made me a priest, not a fool”.

    1. elmcqueen3 says

      Luv’d the comment.

    2. Jimmy King says

      Great analogy A person in a war zone, during a battle, to US christians at home.

      Real bright

      1. johnanaguski says

        Jimmy King The great analogy moron is that they are in your state, your county or your city preparing to lop off your head whether you are Christian or not. So don’t be prepared just drink your kool ade and follow the rest of your sheeple.

      2. Jonathan Brooks says

        Actually, it is.

        We are and have been for some time, at war with Islam, the homegrown drug gangs, the athiest psychopaths, and the State itself, from rogue cops.

        We can bend over and think of England, or we can defend our home, as the followers of Mordici did when the Persian King ordered the slaughter of the Jews, in the Book of Esther.
        The police have verified they have no requirement to protect us from crime, but just investigate after we are dead. Unless you are some Amish guy, or a Quaker, you have no admonition to suicide yourself or your familty to the maw of evil.

      3. joebabe says

        Like we don’t have “war zones” here in the U.S. And Christianity is not under attack here in the US….and we are not under attack from race-baiting community organizers, and we do not have ISIS training camps here in the U.S……and Americans are not doing battle with anti -American left wing ,anti-religious ideologies,……….Pay attention,you are missing some important “hope and change” and ” fundamental transformation “

        US Christians at home are in a war zone – have you seen the news lately? Between the riots, unrest, gangs, and government I don’t even know who has the highest body count or largest repair debts going anymore… Everyone jokes but I don’t think people realize we are like two steps away from 3rd world disaster zone… One or two more major political disasters and it’s going to be US Civil War II — it may actually NEED to be already – before things get better…

  13. Alice Schultz says

    How utterly foolish to think or believe Christians should not own guns. It’s a good thing our Christian founders didn’t think that way or we wouldn’t have gotten to first base as a nation at all!!! There is just no excuse for this kind of ignorance.

    1. Jonathan Brooks says

      I think vaccine induced mercury poisoning, or too much fluoride consumption, or GMO food explains some of this ignorance.

      1. OSAMA OBAMA says

        Or chlorine in the water.

        1. Jonathan Brooks says

          Good point. One of the real threats to a hot bath, is it releases chlorine gas on the bather.

          1. OSAMA OBAMA says

            It’s nice our gov’t. is going to FORCE inoculations upon us!! Obama will surly give muslims a “carve out”!

          2. Jonathan Brooks says

            As far as I can tell, all mandated actions automatically give Muslims an out. Sharia Law by slealth. They do not have to do mandatory Obama care either.

  14. James in Texas says

    I say to this man only one thing……………….”You are only given the Rights that you are willing to fight for”, Period! Christians have been defending this most Blessed nation from the first day of our founding, and if the day ever comes that we “lay-down our arms”, that will be the “last breathe” of Christianity, Period. No nation in the history of mankind has existed without war and fighting and peace has “never” been brought on by talking.

    1. edward martis says

      conversation overheard at ft. baker (west) (entrance to SFO bay–northern side)) at ww2 heavy gun emplacements/ tunnels —–a teacher with about 15ea. 12 yr olds— was telling her students that —” we should just sit down and talk to them ” ( referring to ISIS/ Al Quieda) Welcome to SFO……….the absolute true land of fruits and nuts…….At a demonstration in SFO (for endless whatevers) a bunch of grade school teachers were wearing “Che” (as in Castro’s top killer) red and black T-shirts…..Somebody asked the teachers who Che was…..There answer was; and I quote “He was big in the labor movement” Oh, really…..—-Again; welcome to San Francisco…………This screwey city makes no sense at all….

Now, it is a Socialist Country, trying very hard to be as good as Mexico! All that’s really still alive is the music of the “Beach Boys”.

        1. edward martis says

          You are quite right—-The Democratik Peoplez Republik of Kaliforniya IS quite different now—I presently live (not for long, I hope) about 2 miles from Stanford Univ.)( south of SFO) and is totally over-run with ‘illegals’ and latino gangs—-All of the above did not exist 10+ years ago—-I have recently started carrying a charter arms ‘detective’ special’ .38 cal. w/ hollow points.. CA is turning into a third world country which makes the dems very happy……..I have seen SFO de-generate into a sewer—the 7000+ homeless crap everywhere and is the HIV-AIDS , NAMBLA capitol of the USA—–Do not ‘vacation’ for any reason in SFO…Very HIGHLY aggressive homeless will scream IN YOUR and DEMAND !!! that you give them money—-I have MACED about 6 of them so far…..

  17. Brian says

    The founders who wrote the constitution were somewhat privately religious. And they made gun ownership a right that the gov could not take away. Ill tell this guy this: When God/Jesus himself comes down in person from Heaven and tells me to lay down my guns, I will. But unless that happens. HELL NO!

  18. Joe Glass says

    The Founding Fathers were almost all Presbyterians. They ALL believed in God, or at least acknowledged His existence.

  20. Francisco Machado says

    “…lay aside their rights…to see fewer people die.” Even if the reduction in the people seen dying would be primarily the criminals? He could at least present further argument for his “Make crime safer” program.

    “Perhaps
    instead,” Kandiah writes, “Christians might choose to lay aside their
    rights and even the pleasure they get from hunting to see fewer people
    die.” – See more at:

  21. Joe V. says

    You believe all you want to, with respect to Christians having to disarm, or not arming themselves because of our religion. You will be surprised when you attempted to do harm to a Christian and his family. Becoming a Chistian does not mean you have now become a victim. To turn the other cheek does not mean to allow yourself bodily harm or injury to you or your family. This is were many people take a Christian’s Kindness for Weakness. Yes Christians also carry weapons and are Law abiding citizens who pray to never have to use it, but make no mistake, if the time comes, a Chistian will protect himself and his family knowing he/she would have to answer to God. Then again it could have been God’s will to place that criminal there so he/she could be eliminated by a Christian. Just Remember that being a Christian does not mean living the life of a Victim, and do not take a Chistian’s Kindness for weakness. God Bless you all.

    1. Dan59 says

      You are so right. And there is also righteous anger, God did not expect his followers to be weak. Look back over the centuries of history told in the Bible and many like King David went to war and God helped them defeat their enemy.

      1. Joe V. says

        You’re absolute to correct, and make a very valid point. Very well said.

  22. Ronney says

    Up until this article I never heard of this fool, Hay fool I am a Christian, and I am going to keep everyone of my guns, for fools just like you. No I will not be laying them down, they will be pointed straight at you. Where the hell do they find these people.

    1. hangem'high says

        You sir are probably correct, what a joke a fucking muslim as a constitutional scholar. They cannot tell the difference between a religion and a cult, and this nerd OMG just KILL all of them and get it over with.

        1. hangem'high says

          Makes one wonder why a self-proclaimed Christian would even make a statement like that, or the one “Americans clinging desperately to their guns and their Bibles.” Unless they’re not what they try portraying themselves to be, just saying?

  23. BOONE says

    Sometimes GOD calls his people to arms. Nehemiah 4:14 is one example, “And I looked and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be ye not afraid of them: remember the LORD, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses”.

  24. Rock J. Dueck says

    Quote: “God made all men. Sam Colt made all men equal”. All people including God’s people must be prepared to protect themselves, their family, and anyone else in his care and a gun is my solution. Conversely to Mr. Kandiah’s position, I would suggest that a fully armed society would reduce violence. Your average criminal is only really tough against defenseless people and if he knew he had a good chance of meeting fatal resistance, well, perhaps he’d consider getting a real job instead. Another quote from a sign I saw: “The door you’re about to kick in is there to protect you from me”.

    1. WILDCATF4F says

      LOCK & LOAD!!!

  25. Glenn Schantz says

    Sounds like another plant of propaganda from the socialists to me. Every passage I now in the bible about arms is god or prophets telling the people to lift their swords. Jesus told us to turn the other cheek, but no one was shooting in that instance, lol.

  26. Harold Don Qualkinbush says

    Should Christians also lay down their slingshots, jawbones, swords, and arrows? Maybe cut off their hands because they might choke some one.

  27. Ave Ashley Victoria E says

    This beyond infuriates me.
    As a Christian Female, of 22 (almost 23) years old. And CPL HOLDER etc.

    I DO NOT APPROVE OF KANDIAH’S Message!

    It’s an obligation of the Christian by default to protect their family, friends and even fellow citizens from the sinful actions, violence or harm of others to the innocent, vulnerable and simply weak. Regardless of whether it’s a Father of his family, a young adult male or female, and even a child or teen in training of weapons including guns.

    To purport that Guns are less likely to be a problem due to Christians (supposed to be good guys), is exactly why society will no longer have freedoms under a dictatorial authority within government and political context.

    Which is exactly what a majority of our CHRISTIAN Founding Fathers didn’t want. And wasily controlled society with no protect against the government let alone other fellow citizens.

    Therefore the ARMED Popultion – especially of Christians who won’t tolerate the authority of God- Like – Humans that have ill intentions SEE US as a threat.

    Their IS NO LOGIC behind Christians laying down Arms. That is like standing by the possible, literal and future GENOCIDE of the American Christian Community.

    The Christian Population is ALREADY profusely attacked for not fitting in or changing 100% with the present day times. We are slandered, misunderstood, nefariously demeaned in public, media, and news. We are intimidated into silence and legally – unconstitutionally penalized for not complying with societal changes.

    Their is something this guy – Kandiah – doesn’t get and that is why I simply call him a theolgian and not a true Christ follower. He doesn’t understand to the extent everday Christians will fight to preserve are freedoms… even if one day that means bloodshed must come or self defense simply is the only option; meaning violence is thee only option from others desire to annihilate us of the face of this Earth.

    Also their is no such thing as LIBERAL CHRISTIAN. Liberalism is a disease.

    It has complete contradictions to what Christianity is. Which is conservatism, pro- life, traditional marriage, equality (tolerance) among all cultures and nations etc.

    A Liberal Christian is an oxymoron or contradiction. You cannot follow Christ and be a homosexual, a supporter of the LGBT Community, due to the fact this is condoning sin, and – or living within sin.

    You cannot say you love and value children, if and only if it’s when they are outside the womb, and not the unborn.

    You cannot be for feminism and be a Christian either. Everything about feminism is secular not Christian. It has Nothing to do with Equality.

    Owning a Gun isn’t the same as the sinful acts of Abortion and Same- Sex Marriage.

    To be commiting a Sin with a Gun or Any Weapon would require one to KILL someone in Cold Blood.

    That is completely different than one Hunting, a Weapons Enthusiast, or Self Defense Adocate and Law Abiding Gun Owner. As myself.

    The insanity of those telling me within the Christian community (let alone outside of it) that I have no right or moral obligation to protect myself from future persecution, sexual assault, abuse or unnecessary violence towards – “I”, my body, and those that have value in my life … is dehumanising and inept in ones character to distinguish between right and wrong.

      Thank God for young people like you. Here are some verses you might like to have in case you don’t.
      Luke 11:21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own homestead, his possessions are undisturbed.
      Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them … he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
      NOTE: Jesus did not tell His disciples to register their swords with the government.
      Matthew 24:43 …if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
      Jesus commanded His disciples to purchase weapons:
      1Timothy 5:8…if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

      Psalm 149:6-9 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand,
      7 To execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
      8 To bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
      9 To execute on them the judgment written; this is an honor for all His godly ones.
      Praise the LORD!

  28. Joe V. says

    I Failed to mention That I was once a Christian Soldier for 11 years, and went to war against an Iraqi army with all sorts of weapons as a “Christian Soldier with no questions asked”. I am now a Chistian Veteran who values the same Oath, and I do defend and believe in the 2nd Amendment. The simple logic that many forget is that laws are made for the Law Abiding Citizens to abide by, because criminals are criminals because they do not follow laws so they will always find a way to arm themselves while the laws will make us victims, or make us criminals for wanting to protect ourselves.

    One more not; SCOTUS has clearly stated that Law Enforcement has not responsibility to protect us, but it is our responsibility to protect ourselves and our family.
    So ask yourself how can that be accomplished if they take to guns away?

  29. MrClean961 says

    My right to self defense is not “given” to me by the government, nor indeed are any of the rights in the Bill of Rights including the Second Amendment. Instead, these were considered by the Founders to be “natural rights” endowed by the Creator. The Constitution merely guarantees that the government respect these rights. So this fool is arguing, ironically, against God. Some “Theologian” he is. One supposes his degree might have been acquired from a school found within the cover of a matchbook…

  30. millerstwo says

    I believe in a Christian God and Jesus Christ but certainly not in todays hypocritical “man made” religions which are nothing more than control mechanisms for the masses and centers for power and wealth for the few. The Catholic Church is one of the largest corporations on earth!
    No way will I listen to these pseudo-religious hypocrites and their dictates because Gun ownership is the last vestige of freedom of which I still have some semblance of control and I refuse to relinquish my 2nd amendment RIGHT without a fight!

  31. James Maxwell says

    I am not sure what is problem is, Through history those who are unarmed become slaves to
    others or victims to criminals. While I am against violence I will not hesitate to defend myself
    my family and my country from any and all enemies. As a Ret USAF NCO I have not forgotten
    my Oath to my country and I will not lay down arms leaving my family defenseless to invading
    hordes of Criminal Illegal Aliens, Politicians nor other criminals. At no place in the Bible can I
    find a reference that make myself a victim by laying down my arms which I use to provide not
    only protection but food for my family and also as a recreational item to teach my children,
    Grandchildren and Great Grand children how to hunt and defend themselves from harm.
    God Bless America and the Oath Keepers.

  32. Ms_V says

    Kandiah is a fool. Even Peter, Christ’s disciple, carried a sword. Ridiculous. Must be a closet liberal.

  33. Valor says

    This bird is an idiot, which, sad to say, America has an over abundance of. History and the Bible are replete with examples of peoples slaughtered when disarmed. The Jews in Nazi Germany, and Christians in today’s mid east are just two examples. Kandiah needs to get his head out of a dark place. He strikes me as a classic example of someone educated past their intelligence.

    1. WILDCATF4F says

      I have said many times, that those that say we be MADE! to give them up, need only look into the ‘Riders’ that are still a part of the Founding of the U.S. Air Force, and they will find that in 1947 it was declared for ALL able bodied Men and Women to report for Mandatory Military service, and when they went home, they were to take the ‘Combat Rifle’ with them to insure we would always have a standing army large enough to stop the Entire world, It is a fact that had the Korean ‘Conflict’ not involved the U.S.A., the first thing every 18 year old would look to words, would be going to ‘BOOTCAMP’, and being assigned to a National Guard unit at home if they were not listed in the TOP of their training unit.
      Now since less than 5% ever give thought to attending collage, those that do their 2 years active, are most likely to go to a ‘Trade School’ then spend time working under an experienced Journeyman, and work until they are old enough to retire, say 70-75 today.
      The full time Active Duty Military would be made up from the very same Forces that ‘Enlist’ this very day, and they would be in the top 20% of their respective training units, with the top 5% being asked to ‘Enlist’ for a lifetime, and the remaining 15% being the Active Reserve in the backup capacity we have today.
      As for that IDIOT that is telling ‘Christians’ to give up Fire arms, ‘STFU’,!.
      LOCK & LOAD!!!

  34. Russ says

    Guns are not the problem, people are the problem, educate people like you should, I have owned guns all my life and have never even thought about using one illegally, there are laws governing the use and ownership of guns, that should be enough. It is no secret that the large number of guns owned by people in this country has been a big reason we have never been invaded by another country, we won our freedom with guns, we must keep them to keep our freedom, teach people how to use and keep them, and we all know there will always be people that will misuse them just as they do everything, like alcohol and cars, and drugs, the real problem is the people.

    1. Valor says

      Exactly!

    2. Combatvet52 says

      You are some what right I was an NRA instructor for over 30 years, one major problem now is the Government can’t keep their nose out of our business. We have our right to own guns PERIOD.

  35. Combatvet52 says

    (Christians have an ethical obligation to lay down their arms.) REALLY maybe just maybe when I’m dead.
    This is what they want Muslim Terrorism, keep them all loaded good Christian people.

  36. lha says

    I believe this convoluted thinking comes from a basic misunderstanding of the Commandments. To not kill should read [correctly] to do no murder. Many deluded people have used this wrongly translated Commandment to excuse themselves from Military service. The Israelites were almost constantly defending themselves from invaders,and continue to do so Today.

    1. Earn nest says

      I’ve often wondered how Uriah might have felt when he realized his comrades had pulled away from him in the heat of battle. He was a loyal and honorable warrior. Yet the fact that the adulterer David conspired for this and was himself a killer was called a man after God’s own heart. And we know He looks on the heart. And consider the commands to kill all not sparing women, children, or sometimes even the livestock of an enemy whose crime was sometimes mearly occupying the land set aside for Israel. I find my allegiance divided when I side with Israel as against Palestine when as a man thinketh I would not.

  37. Dennis says

    Let him personally try to take my guns and put my family in danger and he will be a dead theologian. That’s it.

    1. Combatvet52 says

      Ditto

  38. joebabe says

    Kandian,Kandian, does that name have an Armenian heritage linked to it? Go back and read about the Turkey and Armenia relationship in the early 20th century. ……you know, the part about dis-arming the Armenians before the genocidal attack.

  39. Fed Up with BS says

    It is truth with a capital T that there is no correlation between gun ownership and gun homicides, but the anti-gunners don’t even want to know.

  40. Roger_T73 says

    Guess he never heard the song “Praise the Lord an Pass the Ammunition”.
    If we listen to him, only the Godless and Evil people will have guns and they will control our lives and our country!!!
    Good luck when that happens.

    1. Valor says

      The idiot is not smart enough to figure that out!

  41. John Williams says

    Obviously, for some being Christian does not equal being intelligent.

  42. J_in_TX says

    Seems I remember David slaying Goliath with a weapon, not his bare hands. It may not have been a gun, but it was a weapon many used in those times. It was a weapon David did not keep for killing giants, but to protect the sheep he watched over. I, as a Christian, do not own weapons to harm my fellow man. I own weapons to protect the sheep (myself & family) I watch over.

    1. Earn nest says

      I understand that the primary purpose for the second amendment was to keep control of the government limited by avoiding a standing army under their control as well as to insure the individuals right to self protection, hunting etc. I don’t know this man at all but I do know that a push is on for government control of religion to the point of developing a single religion at some future time.

      1. hangem'high says

        I believe I watch Pelosi even suggested this;one government religion in one of her many pleads to the sheeple of the United States!

  43. Stevon f. Nutt says

    I believe in the Old Testament!

  44. Mynickelsworth says

    The “theologian” has a pretty weak excuse for not owning a gun. David said the Lord taught his hands to fight. God sent enemies to attack Israel in the wilderness so they could learn to fight. Jesus in Luke 22:36 said it was time for people to sell his garment and buy a Sword. The disciples replied that they had two swords and Jesus said that was enough.
    The ‘theologian’ is probably scared of guns and therefore, as most all liberals, wants to destroy or do away with any thing they don’t like.
    If a Conservative likes something (anything!) he will buy it for himself and if he doesn’t like it he won’t buy it. If a Democrat doesn’t like that thing he doesn’t want anyone else to have one.
    If a Dem. doesn’t like 16 oz jugs of soda pop, he tries to ban if for anyone else BUT if he likes it he will buy it.
    About the same for the Theologian I suspect.

  45. conrad says

    Remember this God never told anyone to be stupid. In the scriptures God helps many who must defend themselves to survive. If all Christians were to bend forward and allow their heads to be chopped off, Christianity would soon disappear.

  46. e111w says

    The country is crawling with “theologians”..It has reached the point that anyone with an opinion qualifies. Exactly who is this clown anyway? Does he actually exist – or is he another of the media’s imaginary?

  47. MaranathaMark says

    Perhaps Mr. Kandiah should be reminded that Yeshua’s disciple and traveling companion, Peter, carried a sword. If Yeshua was opposed to His followers not arming themselves, he would have admonished Peter to lay down his sword, but He didn’t, Perhaps Yeshua didn’t mean to say what is recorded by Luke in Luke 22:36: 36 He (Yeshua) said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

    Mr. Kandiah’s fruit appears to be bad, for no follower of Yeshua would purposely distort the Word, to advance personal or political philosophy at the expense of the truth.

    1. Ms_V says

      Yep, same thing I said about Peter’s sword. The man Kandiah is an idiot.

    2. mallen11 says

      Yes, and what else Jesus and His Word says about “gun control” in His day and for us today…
      Luke 11:21 When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own homestead, his possessions are undisturbed.
      Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them … he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
      NOTE: Jesus did not tell His disciples to register their swords with the government.
      Matthew 24:43 …if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
      Jesus commanded His disciples to purchase weapons:
      1Timothy 5:8…if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

      Psalm 149:6-9 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand,
      7 To execute vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples,
      8 To bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
      9 To execute on them the judgment written; this is an honor for all His godly ones.
      Praise the LORD!

  48. Robert John Cooper says

    If I lay aside my right to protect my family, how does this take guns out of criminals hands? If good people give up their guns then only bad people have them. I will pray for some insight to come upon you so that you don’t put innocent people in harms way. May God bless you and free you from self destruction. Amen

  49. Frank W Brown says

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but

    not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or

    to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a

    check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not

    to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that

    was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from

    owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty

    F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but

    not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make

    you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is

    run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a

    wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman

    in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head

    searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but

    is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions

    of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his

    teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class

    in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more

    government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with

    Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free

    cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses

    but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to

    provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment

    checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was

    diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest

    big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a

    wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government

    forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself

    makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

    We have a God given right to protect ourselves in what ever way we choose. Christians are not second class citizens and required to allow themselves to be led like sheep to the slaughter. We are all God’s children, He loves us all equally, and even Jesus warned His disciples before He ascended to take up the sword for their protection.

  57. bobby1122 says

    This so- called theologian should have studied the Bible- The commandment ” Thou shall not kill ” as originally translated from the Aramaic and Hebrew before it was corrupted by men( preachers) was written as: ” Thou shall not commit murder”– You were expected to defend your family from evil and to kill those who would try to rape your wife and children and murder your family.

    This man is not displaying any of the traits that Scripture says are Christian. He’s just another anti-gun commie lib, anti-American hack blowhard. Tell me, “PASTOR”(sarcasm intended), where does Scripture say we are supposed to cease defending ourselves, become coward sissys, and present ourselves to muslims as targets? Show me blowhard!

  62. badagliacco says

    First of all… The 2nd Amendment was established as a way for “We the People” to protect ourselves from a Tyrannical and Oppressive Government, not to allow us the ability to hunt (which could be done without a gun)… Regardless, this self appointed MORON is just that, a MORON! Also, Jesus told his disciples to get a sword (the weapon of the day-guns were not invented yet) if they did not have one! He could not be more wrong!

  63. adrianvance says

    OK, so give me a choice between a gun and a Bible in this world. Guess which one I take?

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

  64. Jonathan Brooks says

    Kandiah, can you actually read? The first great gentile of note was a Centurion, who followed Christ, and his entire house. Jesus had his group get a sword, when he went to Gethsemene, and there is absolutely no indication in the New Testament that Christians were to never serve in the Military or Police. Self defense might not be allowed if you are trying to witness, but many Christians of note faught and died in honor from the first century until now as well as many martyrs. I am sick to death of liberal christian theologians trying to turn Jesus into a poster guy for the left.

  65. RichardH says

    Christ said if you have two cloaks, sell one and buy a sword. He realized that evil exists and we have the right and obligation to protect ourselves and the innocent from that evil. He also knew Peter was carrying a sword and allowed it, even though He warned him not to live by it (anger or revenge) in the Garden.

    I am not buying such a load of Bovine Scatology. Who the Hell appointed *this* guy as the authority on what constitutes a “good Christian”?

    I was baptized in the Southern Baptist tradition of Full Immersion. I am a Fundamentalist Bible-believing Christian, and I prayed that the Lord would give me not what *I* wanted, but what *He* wanted me to have. He apparently wanted me to be very, very well armed, because my wife and I own enough arms, ammunition, and standard-capacity magazines to outfit not only ourselves but five others as well. And we are working on being able to outfit ten others.

    Nope, not buying it. If the good Lord did not want me to own plenty of firearms, then I would not have them, ready to hand out to our qualified friends once the Obamunists kick off their “Fundamental Transformation” of America into a neo-Socialist oligarchy. If the Obamunist douchebags ever come around to try that crap here in Arizona, they won’t leave happy.

    Buy More Λmmo. Doing so is the only viable treatment for ODDD (Obamunist Douchebag Distrust Disorder). Support your local Militia and/or your local Oath Keepers. This won’t end pretty, Λmerica.

  70. SouthernPatriot says

    I’ve encountered theologians here in the U.S., and in Britain and Europe that believed in the “Jesus myth” deception and had no Savior and no relationship with Jesus so were LOST and miserable. This guy is just deceived in a different way.

    We can clearly see that Jesus sent his disciples out in the Second Missionary Trip with swords. WITH SWORDS! If there had been guns at that time, he would have send them out with guns. That issue cannot really be debated. Jesus sent his own emissaries out with the best weapons available to them at the time–swords. Swords for what? One of the purposes for swords was self-defense. Idiot theologians that do not know the Word are a disgrace. Did Momma call him and Daddy send him to divinity school? Obviously, he was not called by God.

  71. 3Dunedain90 says

    Some of the most wrong-headed thinkers in religion are theologians. This guy has his compass pointing due south. Any time a man like this makes a sweeping (emotional) claim while ignoring biblical distinctions or qualifiers, not to mention statistics about how Christians are not the kind of gun-owners he must worry about, his motivations and conclusions are too selective and suspect to merit respect.

  75. 3Dunedain90 says

    Beware any “theologian” who presents a false choice with some sweeping claim. A theologian who uses God to further a more dominant social, psychological or political agenda is really not interested in seeking God’s wisdom or moral will on a matter. This guy is writing to please others.

    There is a huge difference between Murder and killing someone to protect yourself and others.

  77. Peatro Giorgio says

    So we have another Uber progressives left so called Theologian making absolutely obscure claims. I guess he isn’t aware of the verse . A strong man’s house is not easily robbed. Or turn your plow shear into swords and your cane sickle’s into spears. Or the very exsample of Christ using violence in the tem0le.

  78. Jim Skiman says

    What is left to cling to? The ovomit dictator is destroying the Constitution and transforming America into a socialist/communist/totaltarian state. Is this what Americans have fought and died for in our 225 yr history?

  79. Girlie58 says

    Yes, good try Kandiah! Let God be the judge of that, ok?

  80. islandwoman2 says

    Krish Kandiah, I am a Christian and an intelligent Woman. “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition.

    1. Girlie58 says

      I like that! I feel the same way.

  81. Ray Looker says

    That Krish Kandiah claims to be a theologian does not mean that he knows anything about the Bible. That he might be able to tell you about church history and who did what in the church does not mean he knows anything about God. The fact that he says Christians should not own guns indicates that he knows nothing about the God of the Bible. He and John Kerry must have gone to the same school together. Both are dumber than a fruitcake.
    When Israel came to the ‘Promised Land’ God commanded that they destroy those living there. When Israel was controlled by other nations God raised up a deliverer to lead the nation into war with their enemies.
    Just because one owns a gun does not mean they intend to kill anyone. I bet he likes his steaks and probably even his pork chops, which means that his soul is an abomination to God. However, to not prepare and train our young men how to hunt and fish, and even camp out, is good training in the event an enemy wants to take over the country.
    In reality we must know that our nation will be tested in the fires of war. Our young men will be killed, as well as the old, and our daughters gang raped, because we never learned how to protect our families or our communities. Look at Syria, Yemen, and especially Iraq. The people are not protected by the government.
    The same in our communities. Crimes of opportunity pop up all over the place and the victims are already exploited and in many cases murdered long before the police get there. People like Kandiah, Kerry, and Obama are a curse to a nation. They want to conquer and control the nation and this can only happen when the people have no means of protection. Gun control has never, i.e., as in ‘never’ kept the criminals from getting and using guns and knives against the innocent. But gun control by the government has endangered the lives of our children as we have watched as deranged people have seized the opportunity to kill in our schools, and shopping malls.

    Don’t worry about a thing!! Christians do NOT need guns. It says so in the Koran. The subdued peoples and “people of the book” must NOT be armed. Nor should they ever order a muslim around.

    Just pray that you are executed in Saudi Arabia with the sword and not ISIL with the rusty knife.

    “Piece” (chop chop) be with you, baby!!

  83. OfcShane (MGySgt USMC) says

    “Perhaps instead,” Kandiah writes, “Christians might choose to lay aside their rights and even the pleasure they get from hunting to see fewer people die.”

    Because Christians hunting is a major cause of death in the US.

    “Critics will say there’s a big difference between a sword and a gun…”

    Ummmm… They didn’t have guns 2000 years ago – the sword, dagger, bow, rod, stave, stone, slingshot (not like today’s toy slingshots), spear, etc., was the common equivalent to shotguns, rifles, pistols, sub-machine guns, assault rifles, etc. All of these items can summarized to a statement that equates the meaning best — “object of lethal force.” What does the Bible really say about self-defense and the preservation of life?

    Luke 22:36 “He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.”

    Exodus 22:2 “If a thief is found breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there shall be no bloodguilt for him…”

    Psalm 82:2-4 “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah. Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hands of the wicked.”

    Ezekiel 33:6 “If the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood”

    Leviticus 26:17 “Whomever commits murder should surely be slain.”

    Exodus 21:16 “Anyone who kidnaps someone is to be slain, whether the victim has been sold or is still in the kidnapper’s possession.”

    Here a few civil scenarios where God’s people were in situations involving racial tensions and they felt their lives were being threatened by racists that would come against them.

    Ester 8:11-12 Jews who are in every city are to gather together and protect their lives — to destroy, kill, and annihilate all the forces of any people or province that would assault them.

    Ester 9:1-5 …the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them. The Jews gathered together in their cities throughout all the provinces of King Ahasuerus to lay hands on those who sought their harm. And no one could withstand them, because fear of them fell upon all people. Thus the Jews defeated all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, with slaughter and destruction…

    Nehemiah 4:17-23 Those who were rebuilding the wall and those who carried burdens took their load with one hand doing the work and the other holding a weapon. As for the builders, each wore his sword girded at his side as he built, while the trumpeter stood near me. So we carried on the work with half of them holding spears from dawn until the stars appeared. So neither I, my brothers, my servants, nor the men of the guard who followed me, none of us removed our clothes, each took his weapon even to the water.

    So yeah — self-defense/justice/war and murder are NOT AT ALL equated the same Biblically.

    “That would logically mean that weapon ownership of any kind constitutes a sin,” – it is statements like these that are just plain retarded. Any object capable of cutting, delivering a forceful blow, or piercing in any way CAN BE A WEAPON. Therefore cutlery, cookware, tools, canes, crutches, posts, boards, most hardware, sharpie pens, etc., not to mention things like cars, trucks, tractors, atvs, cycles, etc., are all sinful items.

    Leave it to a wannabe Libtard to take it to the point of absolute ridiculousness without thinking about what he is saying.

    It is certainly a man’s duty to protect his house, but also his neighbor’s house and the widow down the road. A real man has an assessment of his neighborhood and draws his circle of importance around more than just himself. These self-centered Liberals will never get that. Some people care beyond the self.

    I once heard there are three types of men: One who draws a circle around himself, one who draws a circle around himself and his family/friends, then one who draws a much larger circle around his community, nation, or the world. This third type is the kind of person that becomes your soldiers, police/sheriffs, firemen/EMS, militiamen, prison/security/body guards, investigators, clergymen, doctors/nurses, and other various active community group members that really try to make the world a better, safer, more enjoyable place for the whole. Their circle of responsibility encompasses everyone.

    People don’t realize that most republicans volunteer themselves to that third type. You truly see very few liberals in these lines of work and most that go in Libs come out Conservatives after a few short years. Because once one comes into contact with to much sobering reality the Utopian pipe-dream is shattered and the concept of “I’ll keep getting high until all these problems go away,” flies out the window and the need to participate in the real world kicks you in the teeth.

    It is however, ordained by God, that these people (those who take it upon themselves to follow God’s “call to arms”) are responsible, if not obligated, to protect others – to a point of lethal force if necessary to uphold the just side of things.

    If no one thought that way the world would become a total cesspool of thuggery overnight — we’re almost there though… Thanks Obama!

    1. Landshark says

      No truer words than these, my Brother. Semper Fi!

        Thanks brother. I’ll tell you everyone that “stayed home” while we were “on vacation” has no clue what the world, and the US is really facing. You can’t even help them to understand really. You can’t hug the terrorists hatred away or buy them out – and they ARE already here… Semper Fi! I wish you and your family/friends a pleasant Memorial Day weekend.

        1. Landshark says

          Thanks to you also. Many are saying it’s time for the STHTF. Obamabots are blind to reality and Congress ignores it. My powder’s dry. Remembering those who are with us no longer. God bless you and yours. Semper Fi!

  84. white lightning says

    How should a gun (aka an arm aka firearm) be borne? The spiritual answer is that one should be guided by chivalry and by honor, using solid knowledge and training as tools to that end.

  85. Patti Ferguson Bankson says

    He lost the argument when he put a Constitutional right up against a Legal right… not the same. Beyond that, he tossed out the liberal’s favorite thought: That if law-abiding citizens would give up their guns, fewer people would be killed. Statistics prove otherwise.

  86. dondehoff says

    “It is a “dog-eat-dog”, irrational animal world, “out there”, but there is also a “natural law of the Land”, which dictates that rational human beings do not go around, willy-nilly, killing each other, especially for just holding a “belief”. That natural mlaw functions under the very short and simple edict, “Do no Harm”, except in self-defense or in defense of others in imminent danger”. The very short “Do No Harm” part of the phrase presupposes hundreds of peaceful and logical edicts, such as “fairness, equality, love, toleration, cooperation, compassion, forgiveness, understanding, don’t lie, don’t independently “judge” and take laws and “revelations” into your own hands”, etc. That took me but a couple of minutes and I am sure everyone can add pages of other peaceful “presumptions”. If anyone is having “trouble” retaining an imposed or self- learned religion, fall back on this natural law, as it will help fill the large void of not having a “way of life”), per se, and if there is an “all knowing god” out there, your life style will still closely “fit in” to the life advocated by a deity”. Those as just some of the “do’s”. A few of the “don’ts” include. do no harm just based upon a “belief or a desire”, and accept that few people are perfect and do make mistakes in judgment and actions.

  87. Larry Cowden says

    Kandiah can haul his ass over to Iraq right now and practice what he preaches. If he doesn’t, then he’s a coward, liar and doesn’t even believe his own faith and the words he preaches. Let him see how long he lasts when faced with ISIS! I’m sure they will welcome him with open arms!

  88. Samuel Clemens says

    “Those that beat their swords into plow shears, will plow for those that didn’t.” Thomas Jefferson. That sum it up.

  89. james walls says

    why does some idiot think its ok to let someone rape and murder us and our family and have no protection i am a christian and proud of it but if you try to take my guns you will think what Christ did to the money changers at the Temple was mild that goes for the black boy in the white house also just a God loveing christian from Ga.

  90. Dan59 says

    This guy is an idiot and doesn’t speak for the majority of Christians who know that God has many times over the course of the Bible told his followers to wage war or to protect themselves. When Jesus said go take up a sword he was telling them to get armed, here in our modern day instead of a sword we get guns. With a President who fully believes in importing terrorists it will not be long before Christians will need to fight here to keep from being over run or beheaded.

  91. Landshark says

    As Muslims use our own Constitution to undermine our First Amendment rights and advance their own sick “religion” so does this “Christian” seem to use our religion in an attempt to disarm us against those who would enslave us, be they foreign invaders or our own government.

  92. robert owen says

    We should not only own guns, we should reload, we should know how to make gunpowder and be able to rifle a barrel at home. Between Harbor Freight and the hardware store, none of us need go without protection!

  93. Bill Wilson says

    God requires each and every Christian to know His Scripture. The diversity of Christian beliefs AND the diversity of human morals lends to very diverse interpretation of that Scripture. The Bible states to “turn the other cheek” but also to arm ourselves…If protecting your loved ones from criminal or terroristic acts is not your priority then you need to rethink your stance. Don’t become a victim forced to watch the rape and murder of your family because you did nothing to safegaurd them.

  94. furiousvet says

    The deer hunters would have a real challenge to go out to the hunt without a gun ! It’s been said bthe Japs said the reason they didn’t try to invade OUR country was because the citizens were so well armed.

  95. Mike Whaley says

    As a thelogian, myself, as well as a former police officer, prosecutor, and judge, this poor man is misguided, naive, and out of touch with reality. Pacifisim, even to the extent of personal safety, has, historically, proved to be disasterous. Sir please consider the events leading up to WW II. Perhaps he should be reminded that the result was the MURDER of millions on innocent people. Private ownership of guns is the ONLY defense against tyranny. When his family is under threat, he will pray for a gun. WAKE UP AMERICA to the fallacies of such unrealistic, liberal thought and irrational propaganda.

    1. Landshark says

      In my humble opinion, every single person who calls for the disarmament of the American people should be tried and executed for treason.

  96. Indiana_James says

    Liberals say “theres a big difference between a ‘Sword’ (as in Bible times) and a gun.” True BUT,..a Sword WAS the Biblical times’ version of todays GUN. Its the same situation with liberals protesting that the 2nd Amendment means muskets, which it most certainly did IN THAT TIME. The 2nd Amendment meant the most modern and readily available arms in use at that time which by logical extension it STILL DOES. The law abiding gun owner of today (of course) WANTS the most modern and readily available arms he can lawfully possess.

  97. Conspiracy Cat says

    Might I remind this “Theologian” that merely trying to court the opposite as something christians would or should do has been warned of in scripture; Galatians 1:6-fin. It also needs to be said that ideas from the original Hebrew have literally been lost in translation. Take the 10 Commandments: people STILL believe that one of the sacred laws reads as thus; Thou Shalt Not Kill… this is a gross error. In the Hebrew it literally says, “Do not -Murder-. Murder, as opposed to “Killing” is a heartless and -inhuman- act that its only motivator is the desire to take another’s life. “Killing” is undoubtedly a very loose verb to use by such a Infinite being, wouldn’t you agree? After all, it was Yehweh himself that wrote the Commandments with his own hand. We kill every day… did you know a calf is taken from his or her mother and killed simply to provide us with Milk? We kill to eat on a perpetual basis! God himself has even shown “Man” what he may -kill- to eat long after he wrote the 10 Commandments! It makes no sense to keep the law as it is CURRENTLY written in the english translation of the Bible. So this “Theologian’s argument is mute and should be taken lightly… very very lightly. In fact, I wouldn’t waste even a single crystal of salt to give the expression that is of little concern.

      The Founding Fathers were Christians, and learned men – and they supported the private ownership of firearms.
      .
      “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence. The church, the plow, the prairie wagon and citizen’s firearms are indelibly related. From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security, and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. Every corner of this land knows firearms, and more than 99 99/100 percent of them by their silence indicate they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good. When firearms go, all goes— we need them every hour.”
      .

  103. mike slaney says

    Kandiah, is from the school of “Pick and Choose,” Saying one is, does not make one. Amazing, a majority of the forefathers who wrote and signed the Constitution were Christians, and knew the HISTORY of persecution. Wolves take what they want at the others expense, but a well armed lamb can contest it. Christ himself, never condemned the sword in its use, but be careful how you use it. It is sad that these Liberals disguise themselves and twist the scriptures to their own destruction, of whom they were warned about as being snakes and vipers looking to devour the innocent and make merchandise of you.

  104. thefatefullightning says

    The theologian thinks Christians should lay down their arms. Coptic Christians in the Middle East didn’t actually “lay down their arms”, they did have any to take up— and there followed rape, be-headings and murder.

    As soon as the bad guys of the world lay down their arms I’ll lay down mine. Until then, I will blow them off my front porch.

  105. disqus_CeZmTpgh9W says

    If thou do not have a sword, sell thy cloak to buy one!
    Apparently Kandiah thinks it is unfair for victims to have the ability to defend themselves!

  106. Poodleguy says

    Tell you what, Krish Kandiah, you stick to your views of theocracy & we’ll stick to our Constitutional Right to Keep & Bear Arms. After all, who are you but one very small voice speaking to itself…..

  107. Eric Racine says

    Even Christ told us that we should sell our cloak and buy a sword.

    1. ttoe says

      Christ has never advocated that we just let people have their will with our loved ones and community.

      Christ advocated that WE turn the other cheek, as in individuals. Christ didn’t say let your enemies come in and rape your wife and children, or let the robber take all of your stuff or the enemy nation come in and take for themselves all that God has blessed you with. He said give to those in need and turn the other cheek, when a man asks for your cloak, give him your shirt also, and remain uncorrupted from the world.

  108. ttoe says

    Lololol, brainwashed and self proclaimed theologian. Lay down your arms so that other people won’t commit violent crimes, LOLOLOL.

    I bet you that guy actually believes homosexuality is natural and good and in the woman’s right to choose abortion. He’s probably one of those “progressive” Christians, a new sect that has developed in the left with people so brainwashed, they simply can’t reconcile their programming with the Bible, so they decide that the Bible must be talking about something else when it says Homosexuality or that God breathes the breath of life into the child later on in pregnancy, not at conception. Basically making the Bible fit their ideology rather than forming their ideology based on the Bible.

    You know the statistics that really don’t get their fair attention, if any at all, are the number of times guns are used in self-defense, not just when they’re fired, but simply used to keep a criminal from doing what they otherwise would.

    Then there’s the statistics that will never be recorded because it’s impossible to do so, and that’s the number of crimes that never occur because a criminal expects a person to be wiling and able to defend themselves.

  109. SPOTSOTW@GMAIL.COM says

    Hay jackass Kandiah, when you get everyone else in the world to give up their guns except USA and Switzerland(who by they in modern times, were never invaded because every male over 18 years old keeps his military firearms, included machine guns and other weapons plus ammo for same in their home, it is their law), then ask us again. If you are lucky maybe you will get 8 or 10 of us to give up their guns. You can stay unarmed and you keep potus with you.

    Christians should lay down their Arms so they can be Slaughtered by insane Muslims? I don’t think so.

  112. Scottyone77 says

    Well I think about laying mine down when the President and others has no armed bodyguards. The only way I will lay down my weapons is when Yeshua (Jesus) is in control of this planet. As long as there are liberals like Obama and Evil in the world and terrorist and dictators I will never lay down my weapons. Our founding fathers knew of evil repressive regimes like our government is now. That’s why we have the 2nd ademmendment.

  113. usmc354 says

    This theologian actually needs lessons from Hebrew/Aramaic and Greek dictionaries. Then read and study in depth Holy Scriptures from beginning to end of Holy Bible both Old and New Testaments. There are 5 definitions in Hebrew/Aramaic for the word “kill”. The definition that applies to “kill” in the 10 Commandments has but one meaning and that you may know I will leave that to you to research. Guns do not kill people–people kill people!

  114. j43pick says

    Maybe he should read Luke 22. Jesus tells the Apostles to sell their cloak and buy a sword if they did not have one. That was the predominant weapon of the time. Today I am sure He would say gun. Jesus knew then we would have to fight for Him. It is tme for the leaders of the church’s to stand up and speak the truth about what is happening in this country today and stop worrying about the collection plate.

  115. Jim says

    Well one thing is certain, if the Christians who were fed to the lions by the Roman Emperors had been allowed to be armed, they, more probably than not, would not have met that fate. That was also one of the primary considerations of the persons who crafted our United States Constitution when they drafted the Second Amendment. It was not designed so that citizens could hunt for game or commit robberies or the such like, it was specifically designed so that the people would have the means to defend themselves from an intrusive government such as we are beginning to see in our country today. Citizens who are not allowed to arm themselves are “slaves” of government, and those who are allowed to arm themselves are free citizens.

    1. usmc354 says

      I Agree! 100%!

    How does this so-called theologian deal with this instruction from Jesus Himself?

    Christ Himself instructed his apostles to arm themselves…
    “36 Then
    said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and
    likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment,
    and buy one.” (The Holy Bible. KJV. Luke 22:36.)
    The gun is the 21st century version of sword.

  120. Gerald adams says

    Big difference between a sword and a gun? So because we’ve gone from swords to guns for personal defense, the principle has changed.? The biggest difference between a sword and a gun is that it is much more difficult to kill an animal for food with a sword.

  121. Ralph says

    Even Jesus recognized the right to self defense in Luke 22:36 KJB. Even the OT teaches that people have the right to defend themselves & their property. Put the murderers to death instead of allowing them to continue to live and then get out.

  122. Roger Long says

    If you can get every country to dismantle all bombs, aircraft dropping bombs and completely unarmed, stop all wannabe’s from aggression, then I might consider giving up my guns, but I’m not stupid enough to go into a lions den with no protection.

    just who is this pathetic wacko Krish Kandiah? His name sounds a little too Muslimish to me.

    Gee, I thought it said to sell your cloak and buy a sword. And it also said girdeth up your loins for war. And the way mooslimes are killing Christians that sounds like sound advice to me. I guess that guy is a shill for Muhammad, trying to make us easy pickins.

  131. PayTheMan says

    The only mistake that i easily pick up is in the title: Theologian (singular) is mentioned. This does the world of Christian Theology a major injustice it seems to me. There are MANY (perhaps, a majority… perhaps a super or uber humongous majority) of those who study the teaching of the lord of peace who… well… practice and promote peace (not too surprising).

    What is more surprising to me and many Christians from lots of other countries is the comparatively fearful / aggressive version of Christianity that is uniquely North American conflates violent preparedness and response with following Christ. Such attitude is crusades level stuff it seems to them … and has little role, in the view of many Christians who aspire to a peaceful, Christ-loving / following lifestyle.

    The person whose comments earned the most “likes” so far disagrees with this theologian and so degrades him as being “self proclaimed”. A quick look at this theologians credentials… and one sees an impressive position and pedigree. Interesting how we find ways to degrade those with whom we disagree instead of trying to understand better their views.

  132. Terry Rushing says

    What denomination does this guy claim to be anyway? With his “theology” he would have condemned Abraham, Joshua, David, Elijah, and most of the founding fathers. We would either be speaking German or Japanese if all the Christians of the 20th century had followed his form of theology and refused to take up arms. His “logic” fails to impress me.

    1. Jeanna Green says

      His and Obama’s way of thinking when it comes to spreading and forcing their socialism beliefs onto us has got to stop. I know there will come a day when almost all will see the failure Obama is like the lady that thought Obama was going to pay her mortgage, phone and gas bill. That woman no longer falls for Obamas lies and does not support him any more. Along with that one girl who wrote and sung Obamas song his first time around elections in 2008.
      I see more and more people turning on this Impostor and Chief. I don’t think he will go down as a great President like he is hoping for. I just hope a lot more people pay attention during this next election and not vote Hillary (who is just a female Obama). I hope enough have opened their eyes enough to see their the Lefts radical Agenda is not work for this Country.
      How about anyone who wants to change our Constitution go and move to a Country that doesn’t have one. That way it is a win win situation for all.

    As a Christian I urge all Americans to own firearms. A good hunting rifle and a quality handgun too. First for personal protection, secondly for hunting. Any Christian who studies his Bible might be called a theologian. Your relationship with God does not pass through any other person first. Pray for guidance in all you do but we know this nation is moving swiftly away from God. Mind your own conscience and keep your firearms for food, self defense, and for the values this nation was founded on. If Christians give up the fight to save America there will be no one and no ideas to defend her. I am a college educated, Viet Nam Era veteran, former business owner father of five. Keep or purchase guns and consider to invest in ammo.

  134. Pam Binkley says

    LUKE 22:35 36 37 “THEN JESUS asked them, “When I sent you out with purse or bag or sandals did you lack anything?” “Nothing” they answered. He said to them, “But now if you have a purse take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword sell your cloak and buy one. It is written “…and he was numbered with the transgressors”; and I tell youthat this must be fulfilled in me. Yes what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.” The disciples said, “See Lord, here are two swords.” “That is enough,” He replied.
    I think if the disciples were told to buy swords…people today can buy guns. I think if OB thinks the Iran can have weapons of mass destruction..America can too…and guns as well. Does he really think America did away with nuclear warheads? Ha!
    Another double standard that bothers me…Sharia Law is practiced in several states…this is America! Sharia Law allows honor killings..wife beating..and a host of other…because this is Islam..the Muslim faith. But if Christians spank a child CPS can take the child out of the home. That’s just one example.

  135. ALHL says

    Doesn’t sound like a legit theologian to me!

  136. Charlie says

    Think Kandiah is one seriously confused individual !

  137. ChiefBoring says

    Theologian? I doubt it, if he comes up with kooky ideas like this. Christians with guns are not the problem, but part of the solution. Why not turn this argument on its stupid head, and say in order to own a gun, you must be a Christian…Makes more sense than whatshisname.

  138. Dobraya Utka says

    “Perhaps instead,” Kandiah writes, “Christians might choose to lay aside their rights and even the pleasure they get from hunting to see fewer people die.”

    Yes. He’s right. Last time I went hunting, I left piles of dead bodies all over the hills.

    .

  139. QuisPercusit says

    New International Bible. “Luke” 22:36 And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one. Christ speaking about times of evil. Like now. xx
    King James Bible “Luke 22:36
    Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
    Seems like that could be substituted for a gun now days . There is more preppy stuff in the Bible but Kandiah. is probably an excruciatingly liberal Democrat.

  140. pattonknew says

    apparently if christians stopped paying taxes all together you save more than double that amount of lives by firing progressive morons that support socialism which is the destruction of the nation by centralizing power.
    im just surprised in all your arrogant, mind numbing wisdom; you haven’t logically concluded the same of driving automobiles or eating greasy food even…or maybe americans shouldn’t have actually written the constitution, armed themselves or pushed back the british either.
    It’s either ignorance or completely hypocritical not to realize that even the nazi’s had table manners; when they weren’t actually killing people.
    we realize more today than ever before, the realities of socialism (undemocratic government) and the long history of impoverished nations as a result.
    americans in todays world and especially christians are being targeted from more directions politically than osama bin laden was in the national polls – and in light of a runaway government that doesnt want america to stand up to them, the bastardization of american exceptionalism and the feminizing of todays society that justifies the crushing economic policies and corrrosion of freedom in the name of our own interests…..is not really a difficult choice.
    the difference americans need to understand is between random violence and force :
    violence is all to real but something that no one has a right to do to another person except in self defense – where we as a nation validate both the moral and legal force necessary to defend our liberties, our families and ourselves clearly defining the difference between ignorance and intellect….
    united in this cause we stand which is how america controls government while allowing this administration of megalomaniacs to divide and disarm this nation is how the government controls us.

    the patriot acts should be ended permanently and this administration removed from office and likely prosecuted for treason and collusion.
    we were not wrong for defending this nation, our families or ourselves.
    Rand Paul 2016

  141. Runninbear says

    This idiot doesn’t have a clue to what the Bible says about defending your rights and liberty and makes as much sense as democrats who have lied and committed more crime to create laws to take our guns away and wouldn’t believe him or Democrats who lie about taking our guns away to reduce crime,which any Christians knows better

  142. al.k says

    Just because one claimed to be a Christian, does that mean he should disarm himself for some thug, most high roller preachers have personal body guards. You think credo dollar don’t have body guards, or Joel Ostean?

    I would bet they all pack heat to protect their ill gotten goods.

  143. sunnyd55 says

    The framers intended for the 2nd amendment to protect the citizens from runaway of bloated federal powers. It is a check and balance system that has worked for years Progressives, in their infinite stupidity, are trying to neuter the very law that keeps them safe. Do you think the federal government is smarter than you and do you believe in a nanny state where they tell you how to live your life is better than self empowerment and self reliance? No thank you. I’ll keep my guns and Bible.

  144. JIMBO says

    This Kandiah is forgetting one important point. If he is trying to say that gun ownership is causing more deaths, he is wrong. Stats clearly state that gun ownership is preventing more deaths. Gun free zones have more crimes that areas that are not gun free zones. He is also forgetting that our constitution protects our rights to freedom of religion. Is he implying that that just because freedom of religion is protected, we dont have to agree with it. I could go on but I think you get the point.

  146. RobertNorwood says

    The problem with reading scripture that’s been translated through several languages from the original is “misinterpretation”. Christ’s “turn the other cheek” does not mean, was never meant to imply, literally, to stand around getting your face slapped left and right; it’s a concept in dealing with being slighted. Middle Eastern folks were and still are a revenge oriented culture; just look at those messed up muslims. There is no ethical obligation to not defend one’s self. The issue lies in one’s response, the reasons and whether it is simply out of passion, revenge, etc..

  147. SaneZidane says

    No wonder Christians are being laughed at and mocked. Another self appointed Christian interloper has wandered off the reservation, interfering in matters that are not his concern, with visions of grandeur as his liberal mind wishes to interrupt them. Why doesn’t this Kandiah fella make himself more useful and proffer a novel idea of taking guns out of the hands of criminals instead of Christians.

  148. Francisco Machado says

    So, no problem if it’s a Muslim terrorist – but no guns for Christians? It’s troubling that something like this got beyond the editor’s desk. Not a matter of infringing upon his free speech, just a matter of not publishing indefensible nonsense.

  151. Harold Young says

    I too am a Teoalogian, and I disagree with this “brother”. Jesus himself endorsed self protection. He said if you don’t have a sword, “a gun today”
    sell your coat and but one. Get youself a good King James Version Bible, and look it up. You will probably need some helps. I’ll let you deside. Christians don’t give up your guns. If you or your family are attacked, then shoot to KILL. I will, I have a gun, and a license to conceal carry. I have three thepological degrees, I am not “self proclaimed.”

  152. Ferd321 says

    This position is insane, and a failure to understand Christ and his teachings. The one item he mandated the apostles take on their mission to spread the word was—-a sword.
    Enough said.

  154. phil62 says

    If he is right then the entire Jewish Nation is totally corrupt and going to hell because they fight to preserve their families and country. I see a great deal of places throughout the Bible where God says to defend and protect against the societies (ISIS/IRAN) that live against His teachings. I am NOT going to just stand by like a cowardly fool because I am a devoted Christian and watch somebody beat my wife to death and kill my children. What this dude needs is a simple lesson: “…A whole lot less ‘Theology’ and a whole lot more ‘Knee-ology’…” And that folks is called Christian Common Sense.

    1. FBA says

      I think he is terribly deluded. I am a deacon in the Anglican Catholic Church and I own several weapons. I usually carry concealed especially when I enter establishments that have a “no firearms allowed” – such as Panera Bread for one – they are magnets for criminals who know they will not be resisted. Well, this Gun&Bible toting Christian will resist any attempt to harm me, my family or my neighbor.

      BTW, I know the way of eternal life and I am always happy to share the knowledge.

      Shalom.

  155. lostproton says

    Read the BIBLE. After the Last Supper Jesus asked the disciples if they had any problems when he sent them out by twos with no food and money (no satchel) . And when they replied that they had no problems; Jesus told them that now they must take those provisions with them and if they did not have a sword to sell their cloak and buy one. There were no “guns” back then and the defensive weapon was the sword. The staff and the sword were the defensive weapons for thousands of years. Therefore this supposed theologian is a fraud.

    When Kandiah can demonstrate that evil people become nice people when guns disappear, i.e., evil people in the form of criminals and dangerous politicians, until then one can logically conclude that Kandiah is an idiot

  162. tinkerunique says

    That idiot assumes that guns are only used for murder. FORGOTTEN to mention is the American hunter, and the competitive shooter. MOST lawful people that have guns, ALSO have a family that knows how to handle them safely and are usually pretty good shots. < NONE of the 'stylish flashing a gun" and spraying a car or house full of holes, like gangbangers do. ANY good hunter will NOT shoot more than once at a specific "food item", For a paper target, I like to draw smileys. Want to prove a thing ? Get helium balloons with a 3' string. Anchor them to the ground at a range and shoot the STRING, and let the balloon float away. OR just blow up a small balloon and hang it from the limb or bottom of a target. Much better with a slight breeze. Do that consistent and you might be a GOOD marksman

  163. rmwayne says

    He’s dead wrong. Hatred against Christians by the left and muslims is getting more and more prevalent and violent. Christians must be armed to protect themselves against these rats.

  166. Lawrence Kelley III says

    The writer of this FTN article doesn’t himself seem to know Bible scriptures or doctrines very well or even the views held on gun ownership by a majority of conservative Christians. Instead, the author leaves the matter of Christian gun ownership (if even for just home self defense of family) as one being “open” for Christians. Any Christian who knows both the Law of God (Torah) and those of the U.S.A, and the sound logic that flows from understanding & knowing those Laws, and the “correct theological position” is just what the Israelis have when they, too, are surrounded by criminals and murders there.

    The issue of gun ownership is highly suggested in Israel and people open carry in every part of Israel. If such Christian ownership and “use” of guns for enforcement of anyone’s Godly and human rights were more common, along with all non-Christians, we would see the same very low crime rate of Israel and other countries where the ownership of guns is well established right of free men under God everywhere.

    Its those that doubt this issue is clear or undecided are the ones working for Satan, and not our Lord Jesus Christ. Watch and be very careful what you read and look for the evil suggestions posed like these from the Christianity Today magazine cited – the one for immature and zombie Christians. Its one of Satan’s tools to soften your resistance. Every prudent Christian being warned of the last days ahead is foolish to not own a gun — if only for self-protection for all those coming haters of God who do wickedness among men defying God and will seek to kill the saints of God. Its never God’s will that his own children would suffer death by a criminal’s bullet. God has many other good plans the Bible says.

  167. Stan Hoffman says

    The devil knows every word of God, but he doesn’t know the meaning of the words.

  168. underthewire says

    Yep….Christians should just let their heads be cut off. In my view ..all Christians had better take up arms and defend their beliefs less they are forced lose their religion presence to homosexuals, atheists, and of course the Hollywood elite. Including the current Obama administration.

  169. jc1958 says

    If only law abiding citizens owned firearms, there would be no gun violence in this country. Our government wants law abiding citizens to lay down their arms which would ensure that only criminals would have them. Well, them and the military and the cops. That’s not the kind of country I want to live in.

  170. jc1958 says

    So what do we learn from this article? Never listen to a theologian on matters of true spirituality. The Holy Scriptures speak for themselves with no need of some bubble headed theologian to tell us all what they mean. As James wrote, “If any man lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who freely gives without finding fault.”

  171. W.Frank Sieg says

    “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:………

    a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.”

    God knew there would always be times when men would have to fight for what they believe in, in order to secure for their children and their loved ones, peace and security.

    Christ Himself said there is no greater love than to lay down your life for another., while at the same time urging those who fight only out of pride to “turn the other cheek.”

    Furthermore, we should never forget that His disciples where armed men, only one of whom Christ chastised, and not for being armed, but for interfering in God’s plan.

    Finally God Himself, led His followers to battle, and to victory, something He could not have done if His followers were a bunch of pacifist victims wholly unwilling to bear arms on their own behalf.

  172. KLH6 says

    So here’s the scenario if Christians “lay down their arms”. All the thugs ( they are criminals for you liberals who think it’s a bad word)
    will kill, loot, rape & -create mayhem at will. They will not be giving up their guns. They will also use axes, machetes, knives etc. Then come the terrorists with the bombs & beheadings. Ecclesiastes chapter 3 is one of my favorite books of the Bible. For those of you old enough, you might remember The Byrds “Turn, Turn, Turn.” That came out in late 60’s. They used sections of Ecclesiastes. A time for war, a time for peace. I’m not going to print the whole thing. But the gist is there is a time for every purpose under heaven. Now is not the time for peace. We will be fighting Satan & his minions in the form of Islamic extremists for many decades to come. If we lay down our arms, we will be slaughtered eventually. They are not going to remain in the middle east. God does not expect us to watch as 3 yr old girls get raped & children are beheaded because they will not renounce Christ. I remember some biblical story where God sent various things to help someone but they didn’t avail themselves of the tools God sent. In the end the person said,” I called for you to help me. Then God pointed out the things he’d sent but the person ignored them because they were expecting something else. A gun is a tool to be used for hunting food if necessary or to protect ourselves & families. For those of you who want to surrender & be killed,that’s your choice. Many Christians are being slaughtered right now & they are begging for other Christians to come to their aid & silence is whst they get. I’m older & in poor health without financial resources. Otherwise, I would go help.

  173. Ron Francis says

    Now this is stupidity at it’s finest. The problems facing us today are largely due to Christians not engaging the enemies of the faith (I didn’t say shoot them). If we Christians would determine to be “Christ-like” there would be a huge change in the moral fiber of the country. When you demonstrate God’s love the world has no answer because it puts them face-to-face with exactly what they are searching for. God made it simple, we complicate it.

  174. Victor Archuleta says

    Is this the same Krish Kandiah who is the President of the London School of Theology? Is he competent to tell Americans what they ought to do? His argument makes as much sense as the argument “that guns kill people”. If that’s logical, then forks make people fat and cars make people drive drunk.

    Does this man understand that his king lost the opportunity to aid the Founders of America in gaining their God-given rights? Does he understand that the King’s Anglican church had the same Bible the Founders had – yet the Anglican pastors had no understanding; they were equally to blame for the need of the colonists to revolt.

    How dare Kandiah attempt to interpret our Constitution, and tell us to surrender our God-given liberty!

    Let’s hear it for some of the old tyme religion!!

    Sayings of the Vikings

    from The Havamal or Book of Viking Wisdom

    Always rise
    to an early meal,
    but eat your fill before a feast.
    If you’re hungry
    you have no time
    to talk at the table.

    – The Havamal

    Never walk
    away from home
    ahead of your axe and sword.
    You can’t feel a battle
    in your bones
    or foresee a fight.

    – The Havamal

    Moderately wise
    a man should be
    not too crafty or clever.
    A learned man’s heart
    whose learning is deep
    seldom sings with joy.

    – The Havamal

    The unwise man
    is awake all night
    worries over and again.
    When morning rises
    he is restless still,
    his burden as before.

    – The Havamal

    It is fortunate
    to be favored
    with praise and popularity.
    It is dire luck
    to be dependent
    on the feelings of your fellow man.

    – The Havamal

    Wake early
    if you want
    another man’s life or land.
    No lamb
    for the lazy wolf.
    No battle’s won in bed.

    – The Havamal

    Go you must.
    No guest shall stay
    in one place for ever.
    Love will be lost
    if you sit too long
    at a friend’s fire.

    – The Havamal

    Be your friend’s
    true friend.
    Return gift for gift.
    Repay laughter
    with laughter again
    but betrayal with treachery.

    – The Havamal

    Cattle die
    kinsmen die
    all men are mortal.
    Words of praise
    will never perish
    nor a noble name.

    – The Havamal

      Who is a fake? Why?

      1. Gary Qualls says

        The guy that said Christians should not own guns is a fake ! Christians are the most trusted & are a peaceful people, but Christians also train to protect themselves & others if needed ! We know this world is full of sheep > we also know this world is full of wolves, & some wolves wear sheep clothing to fool the innocent as to slaughter them ! God also made some sheepdogs to help tend to the flock ! Just look at our own country > less than 2% of our Nations population serve in our Military. Ever since the draft was band, most everyone serving in the Military are or vote Republican (75%)! So who is protecting whom ? The 2% are the very ones that have the courage to put their best foot forward & make the commitment to protect all USA Citizens > when the other percentage lacks that courage & commitment & will never make such an obligation to do so other than to complain. Look at all world history > any time corrupt leaders start requesting regular citizens give up their weapons > when they do so > they are slaughtered ! The USA was stared by people that ran from such corrupt leaders as this, now they are trying to weed their way into our Political system & have already done so > Example: both Bill & Hillary Clinton were former full blown members of the Communist Party, & Bill was a draft dodger that ran off to Canada to escape Felony prosecution by the USA legal system. Then along came Jimmy Carter (Marxist), who pardoned Bill Clinton & allowed him to re-enter the USA. Now we have a Muslim non USA born Obama that is trying to destroy the very country you & I live in ! The very last people I was protecting were Muslims > Bosnia ! I am a 28 year Retired Veteran & Christian ! I lost my son in the Battle for Fallujah, Iraq > 16 November 2004. Later we lost his 1st cousin in Ramadi, Iraq > 22 July 2007. We defeated the enemy > then Obama gave it all back to the enemy, because he himself is a Muslim! FACT !

  179. glorybe2 says

    Christ over ruled the Old Testament. Violence is not permitted under any circumstance at all. It really does put Christians in a bind but it is the only correct reading of Christ’s teachings. To a christian death is welcomed and not dreaded even for family and friends. There is nothing in this world worth clinging to and heaven awaits all Christians. Christ and patriotism are not compatible. Being practical and just getting by are not part of Christian life. If self defense was acceptable early Christians would not have been fed to the lions.

    Our founding fathers saw the 2nd Amendment as an unalienable right given to us by our Creator, another reason not to believe Kandiah and his pseudo-theology!
