It's feast or famine at Armed Lutheran Radio! For our 20th episode, all our contributors are back and the show is chocked full of goodness. Sgt. Bill talks about passing on your passion for shooting in this week's Ballistic Minute, Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense joins us to talk about his trip to the NRA Annual Meetings in Louisville, Kentucky, and Pastor John Bennett is here to fisk an article from a retired ELCA pastor which suggests that "strong" Christians must set a good example for "weak" Christians and eschew the ownership of guns, because owning a gun is like pagan worship and you might give people the impression that owning a gun is okay. But it's not. Or something. It's a bizarre "re-contextualization" of Paul's letter to the church at Corinth and we unravel the whole thing in Clinging to God and Guns.
We are winging it this week on Armed Lutheran Radio. All our plans fell apart. Aaron Israel is in Louisville for the NRA Annual Meetings, Pastor John Bennett is taking care of some family matters, and Sgt. Bill and I are left holding down the fort. Sarge has tips for shooting faster in this week's Ballistic Minute. We talk about the Target stores controversy, and a story by Kevin Williamson at National Review about why criminals are so darn difficult to stop, especially when our politicians insist on policies that target the law abiding, and not the criminals.
In this week's episode of Armed Lutheran Radio, we're back from the Texas State IDPA match with tips from Sergeant Bill on practicing what you're not good at, Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense joins me to discuss the importance of seeking professional training, and Pastor John Bennett of St. John's Lutheran Church in Willow Creek, Minnesota is back for <em>Clinging to God and Guns</em> as we take on another bit of bad theology (and logic) from evangelical minister Rev. Rob Schenck.
In this week's episode we are excited to be joined by the co-host of Table Talk Radio, Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller of Hope Lutheran Church in Aurora, Colorado, to talk about the Doctrine of the Three Estates and how it can help us better understand the natural right of self-defense. Sergeant Bill talks about pre-stage planning, Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense shares some lessons from a tragic shooting outside a Texas Walgreens, and defending Armed Lutheran Gun Trivia Quiz Champion Jon Braaten brings us a gun review.
In this week's episode Sergeant Bill talks about how and why you should get started shooting IDPA, we try to put the best construction on the most bizarre article from the Huffington Post which suggests that you have a right to own guns, but not a right to use them for self-defense, and we discuss an article's deceptive use of the term "children" in Clinging to God and Guns with Pastor John Bennett.
