Prayer of the Week

Merciful Father, look with compassion upon our world. In the midst of fear brought about by the present epidemic, grant Your people comfort and assurance that You are in control of all things. Through this pestilence we pray that you would turn hearts toward You in repentance. We lift up to you all whose vocations place them in service to those who have been infected. Grant Your protection to our health care workers as they serve as Your hands of mercy to the afflicted. Be with all who are working tirelessly to develop a vaccine, that You would guide their work and grant them success in their efforts. Be with all who have contracted this virus, that You would comfort them in their hour of need. Safeguard us, our loved ones, and all who cry to You, that we may be defended from infection; and set our hearts at ease, that we may find in You an answer to all our fears. This we pray through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

As the nation grinds to a halt as a result of the various government responses to the Coronavirus pandemic, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett consider how do we, as Christians evaluate the decisions made by our public officials in light of the second great commandment [Matt. 22:39]. Are these responses showing love for our neighbors or are they knee-jerk reactions that do more harm than good?

Listen for part two of this discussion in episode 213!

Persecution is mentioned over 70 times in the Bible. Many anti-gun Christians argue that since the Bible calls on us to suffer persecution and to love our enemies, we should not resist the violent criminal with a firearm. If you've heard this argument but don't know how to counter it or if it sounds reasonable but you're just not sure, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett discuss the distinctions between different kinds of persecution and what makes persecution different from violent crime.

We're getting back to our roots in today's Clinging to God & Guns show as Lloyd and Pastor Bennett dissect and debunk an article from Patheos.com. Written after the El Paso and Dayton shootings in the fall of 2019. The author contends that all gun owners have a moral obligation to support stricter gun laws and suggests that hate speech and a lack of support for gun control are valid reasons to deny a person the right to own a gun.

A Christmas message based on the account of author Henry Williamson of the Christmas Truce on the Ypres salient in 1914. Williamson's account, published in the London Daily Express in 1937, reminds us that even during that deadly and bitter conflict, we are all God's children. Pray that we remember that fact in the midst of our modern day divisions.
