In this week's Clinging to God & Guns episode, Lloyd is flying solo with a rant about the latest craziness in the news and tries in vain to put the best construction on the border crisis, crime, critical race theory, and gun control.
Grant, O Lord, we implore You, that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by Your governance, that Your Church may joyfully serve You in all godly quietness; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
In honor of Father's Day, we present a collection of classic clips from previous Father's Day shows. Mia talks about the importance of fathers to women and young girls, Sgt. Bill and Pastor Bennett reflect on the joy of sharing firearms and firearms safety with their fathers and the importance of passing that on to their kids, and Lloyd shares the history of Father's Day and why it still matters.
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.
Context, context, context. Millions of Christians use proof texts to promote or defend preferred ideological positions, political movements, or worldviews. And most of those who do the proof-texting do it with little or no context. Lloyd and Pastor Bennett address a recent example from listener comments to help you recognize the kinds of arguments that you might face in the gun-rights debate, and how you can debunk them.
Almighty and everlasting God, who has given to us, Your servants, grace, by the confession of a truth faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity and in the power of the Divine Majesty to worship the Unity, we implore You that You would keep us steadfast in this faith and evermore defend us from all adversities; who lives and reigns, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
In this week's variety show we discuss a couple of positive gun-rights news items, Sgt. Bill reviews his performance at the 2021 Texas State IDPA Championship, aand Pastor Bennett shares his thoughts on the latest revelations about COVID-19.

O God, the Strength of all those who put their trust in You, mercifully accept our prayers; and because through the weakness of our mortal nature we can do no good thing, grant us the help of Your grace that in keeping Your commandments we may please You both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
