With a migrant caravan header for the southern border, voices on both sides of the immigration issue are misusing God's Word to support their position. Lloyd and Pastor Bennett examine the subject of illegal immigration and how we, as Christians, should think about the subject. Plus Lloyd's thoughts on the mid-term elections and tips from Mia and Sgt. Bill.

Clinging to God and Guns
With a migrant caravan header for the southern border, noted theologian John Kasich chided Americans to open their hearts to illegal immigrants because the Lord doesn't want walls or borders. On the other side, an insane post at Pulpit and Pen suggest the Christian response to these migrants is bombs and bullets. Lloyd and Pastor Bennett examine the subject of illegal immigration and how God's Word should inform our opinions on the subject.

Prayer of the Week
Stir up, we implore You, O Lord, the wills of Your faithful people that they, plenteously bring forth the fruit of good works, may of You be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Sep 30, 2018

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.

Should we, as Christians, be willing to violate such a law based on that argument? Lloyd and Pastor Bennett revisit this issue to provide clarification.

Prayer of the Week

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.

Aug 26, 2018

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.

He just thinks that, if you're a Christian, you shouldn't exercise it. He criticizes gun-rights advocates for using hypothetical arguments and then uses hypotheticals of his own to argue against gun rights for Christians. Lloyd analyzes his arguments and his use of Scripture.

Prayer of the Week O God, whose never-failing providence orders all things both in heaven and earth, we humbly implore You to put away from us all hurtful things and give to us those things that be profitable for us; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

In March of 2018, progressive clergy held an interfaith press conference held at Augustana Lutheran Church in Portland, Oregon, led by Augustana's pastor, Mark Knutsen. Knutsen describes Augustana as a holy place where "justice and peace kiss." That press conference launched the the "Lift Every Voice" campaign to gather signatures to get an "assault weapons" ban on the November ballot. In another feature-length segment of Clinging to God & Guns, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett analyze the incoherent ramblings from that conference and unmask the opportunism, fear-mongering and ignorance behind the campaign.
