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.
