It's our variety show week and we have another great hunting tip from Mia, tips on offseason prep from Sgt. Bill, Lloyd's thoughts on the latest ad from Gilette, and Pastor Bennett is answering a listener email.

Commentary Gilette has released a new ad against "toxic masculinity," calling on men to be their best. Lloyd shares his thoughts on where the best example of masculinity can be found and why we can't seem to figure it out as a society.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill For many competitive shooters, it's the off-season and preparations for the 2019 season are under way. Sgt. Bill shares tips to help you improve.

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine Mia continues her series of hunting tips with a discussion of "spot and stalk" hunting; how it is different, tips for success, and why it's so prevalent in the Western states.

Pastoral Pontifications In his second edition of his new segment, Pastor Bennett answers a question from Rob Morse of the Self Defense Gun Stories podcast: "Are we good or bad?"

Prayer of the Week Almighty and everlasting God, Governor of all things in heaven and earth, mercifully hear the supplications of Your people and grant us Your peace in our time; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Special Guest: Pr. Bryan Wolfmueller

Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller of Hope Lutheran Church in Aurora, Colorado and co-host of Table Talk Radio is our special guest. Pr. Wolfmueller explains the medieval doctrine of the three estates, and how Martin Luther's interpretation of it was the key political insight of his career. The original idea was that there were three "orders" in life: those who worked, those who prayed, and those who fought. The home, the church, and the state. To be a part of one meant you could not be a part of the others. Luther recognized that, unlike the early Church fathers and medieval theologians, the three estates actually overlap and people are a part of multiple "orders."

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill

Sgt. Bill talks about trigger control in this week's Ballistic Minute. He boils three techniques, their advantages and disadvantages: the slow press or “surprise” break, prep and press, and fast full press.

Nov 26, 2018

A “Reverend” in the United Methodist Church somehow connects the symbol of the cross to Trump and the hate-filled Nazi who a committed mass murder at the Tree of Life Synagogue. If you think it's time to lay down the cross as a symbol of the church because of the actions of an anti-Semitic mass murderer, you might be a heretic. Or insane. Or both.

Clinging to God and Guns
When I was 18 years old I wrote a mindless poem about how I could no longer call myself a Christian because of the history of abuse by the Church over the centuries. I walked away from the faith because I could not distinguish the acts of evil humans within the church and the church itself. But I was a freshman in college. Today we examine an article by a “pastor” in the United Methodist Church who has decided to reject the cross because others have used it as a symbol in commission of evil acts. What drove her to this conclusion? The acts of an anti-semitic, Trump-hating, Nazi who attacked the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin says we live in a culture that celebrates death and that contributes to mass shootings. The media laughed him off and missed his larger point. Lloyd discusses the culture we live in and changes we could make to deter or prevent mass shootings and ideas where common ground might be found between the two sides of the gun debate.

Fear is a powerful emotion. Progressive Christians employ fear in two very contradictory ways to push their anti-gun agenda. We gun-owners should have no fear if we have faith and therefore we should not need a gun. And at the same time we should fear gun violence so much that we should support gun control. But God makes it clear that we should not be afraid. We should not worry or be anxious about this world.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Aaron has been with us since episode 8 and over the course of three years he has provided timely and timeless information. Sgt. Bill and I took his Combat Focus Shooting one day class in 2016. It was my first full-day of self-defense training and it was a real eye-opener. Aaron is a gifted instructor and easily makes the complex understandable. When it came time to find an instructor for my wife's license to carry class, I turned to Aaron. Over the course of the next two years I learned a ton from Aaron, through his weekly tips, his articles, his posts in social media, and my opportunities to hang out with him on the show, on the range, on a road trip to the Louisiana State IDPA match in 2017. I will forever be grateful to him for the content he provided for listeners to this show. I am honored to consider him and friend and I know that whatever he puts his heart and mind into next will be a tremendous success.

Prayer of the Week
O Lord, we pray that Your grace may always go before and follow after us, that we may be continually given to all good works; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

In this episode we bring you a feature-length edition of Clinging to God and Guns where Lloyd and Pastor Bennett consider what God's Word says about government and what we, as Christians, owe the ruling authorities. Leftist gun-grabbers accuse us of loving guns more than God. So we center our discussion around Romans 13, and the idea that government is instituted for our good and ask (and answer) some tough questions. Are we right to refuse to comply with the law if we disagree with it? Was the American Revolution a violation of Romans 13? What about government turned evil? What about gun control? As a Christian, must we comply if the law violates God's law? The questions and answers are difficult and uncomfortable at times, and that's why we ask them.

This week on Armed Lutheran Radio we learn about the word “Marcionism,” a 2nd Century gnostic heresy taught by Marcion of Sinope. Marcion suggested that the God of the Old Testament and the God of the New Testament are different gods. One is violent and cruel, the other loving and forgiving. That heresy survives today at Clackamass United Church of Christ where Rev. Adam Erickson hates the story of Noah and the flood because the “God character” in that story is nothing like Jesus.
