Keep, we implore You, O Lord, Your Church with Your perpetual mercy; and because the frailty of mankind without You cannot but fall, keep us ever by Your help from all things hurtful and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord who lives and reign with You and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Almighty and merciful God, whose gift it is that Your faithful possess all things pertaining to faith and life, we implore You that we may so faithfully cling to Your promises in this life that we fail not finally to attain to Your heavenly glory; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

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.

Clinging to God and Guns

For the first three years of Clinging to God & Guns we spent most of our time debunking sermons and articles and speeches of Leftist Christians who try to push gun control using scripture. We don’t do that as much anymore because, quite frankly, it got boring. Every article since the shooting in Las Vegas shooting has been nothing but politics and almost no attempt to justify their argument using God’s word. And then, lo and behold, the Presbyterian Church USA ordains a woman to serve as the first "Minister of Gun Violence Prevention." We couldn't pass up taking a swing at this one.

Stump the Guest Pastor: Gaven Mize

Gaven Mize serves as the pastor at Augustana Lutheran Church in Hickory, North Carolina. He joins us today to play Gun Ban Theology (affectionately known as "Stump the Pastor"). Today we look at quotes from John Piper (Matthew 5:11-12), C. Denise Yarborough (Luke 3:7-8), and Dr. David Dunn who contrasts gun ownership with the martyrdom of St. Polycarp.

Prayer of the Week

O God, the Protector of all that trust in You, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy, increase and multiply upon us Your mercy that, You being our Ruler and Guide, we may so pass through things temporal that we finally lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
