Guns Again!

I came across an as this week for Henry Repeating Rifles. The full ad is here but the image is one I find quite disturbing.

I find it disturbing because I know too many believers (in the US) who get the Bible and the Bill of Rights jumbled together. I know Canadians and Americans who cling to their guns and religion to the point that being a Christian means you are for the right to bear arms. I wrote about this type of thing once before.

I am not saying it is wrong to own a gun. I even think the Henry Repeating Rifles are really nice looking. Let's just keep religion out of it.

Remember the Word of God is "inspired by God and useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting people, and training them for a life that has God's approval. It equips God's servants so that they are completely prepared to do good things." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Let's keep politics out of the church and focus on the King of Kings.

I hear the man in the ad saying, "I trust God, but I'll keep my gun handy just in case." Kudos, though, to the Henry company for stating their position in a respectful, even winsome way ("If you don't, that's fine too...").

I hear you. My problem though is the whole, "I'll take matters into my own hand" idea.
