This week on Armed Lutheran Radio we take a look at maybe the goofiest interpretation of Scripture to date. A California Quaker who suggests that Christ's call for His disciples to buy swords in Luke 22 was so that he could fulfill the prophesy to be numbered with the lawless because, we all know what lawless do. They carry swords! Plus tips for Mia, Aaron, and Sgt. Bill.

Clinging to God and Guns
Quakers are inherently pacifists, so you kind of know what you're going to get when they write about guns. But this interpretation of Luke 22 may be the goofiest we've ever seen.
Prayer of the Week
O God, because You know that we dare not put our trust in anything that we do, mercifully grant that by Your power we may be defended against all adversity; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Fouke, Arkansas is best known for the stories of the Fouke Monster, a bigfoot-like creature that locals claim attacks livestock and which inspired the 1972 movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. On February 2, a different kind of monster came to Fouke, bringing with it the first violent crime in a generation.
Liberal Christians like the Presbyterian Church want congress to pass more restrictive gun control because all life is precious and killing is antithetical to the will of God. But like Jesus's call to take the log out of your eye before pointing out the speck in your neighbors, they fail to recognize that their argument for life when it comes to guns directly contradicts their position on other forms of life.

Amen.

Clinging to God & Guns - Lloyd and Pr. Bennett go through an article that purports to undermine the traditional American combining of God and Guns by using bogus gun violence stats, horrible logic, and even more horrible interpretations of Scripture.
Mia's Motivations - As promised, Mia is sharing info about gear she saw at SHOT Show. This week it's everything you need to know about suppressors.
Fundamentals of Defense - Aaron Israel departs from the firearms instructor role to suggest that a more important threat to your future is financial issues. You may never have to use your gun to save your life, but everyone will experience financial troubles at one time or another. Being prepared for them is as important as training for the gunfight you are far less likely to be involved in.
