Episode 184 - Imitating a Non-Violent Savior

This week we are playing "Stump the Pastor - Long Form Edition." Lloyd shares excerpts from, and Pastor Bennett responds to, an article by an Army veteran turned pacifist who now questions how followers of a "nonviolent Savior who gives life abundantly can own something designed to take life."

Clinging to God and Guns

The author of today's article is beating his guns into garden tools to show nonviolent love toward his neighbors and doesn't understand why the majority of Christians are wrong on the subject of gun ownership. "As anyone who is committed to Christian nonviolence will tell you, it’s not just a belief. It’s not just a way of looking at the world. It’s all that, but so much more. It’s a call to action. Being an imitator of our nonviolent Savior requires action because Christ acted." Lloyd and Pastor Bennett analyze his conclusions.

Links of Interest Prayer of the Week

Almighty and everlasting God, who are always more ready to hear than we to pray and give more than we either desire or deserve, pour down upon us the abundance of Your mercy, forgiving those things of which our conscience is afraid and giving us those good things that we are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Christ, our Lord; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
