What’s the plan, man of God, when some demoniac rocks up to your house of worship to carry out the insidious commands of ‘the voices’ whispering in his whirring tin-brain to kill your congregants?
What are you going to do?
This is the ultimate ‘What Would Jesus Do’ query, eh?
I think if Jesus were placed in such a situation he would whip out his Glock and double tap the center mass of any killer who was attempting to put a bullet in one of his defenseless disciples.
Okay, maybe Jesus wouldn’t do it … but Peter definitely would have and then Jesus would’ve sent the shooter to hell.
Now, I know that doesn’t fit with most folks bearded lady, soft-focused, Precious Moments figurine version of Jesus that some have been peddling for the last twenty years, but it does square with the Christ of my Bible.
Pastors, let me help you out: The job of the shepherd is to serve and protect sheep, and in this permissive and paranormal milieu that means not only with TLC and sound doctrine but with several semi-autos and some Cor-Bon hollow points. I know it’s not a pleasant thought, and they didn’t tell you this stuff in seminary, but this is the world we live in, and this is the hand we’ve been dealt, so . . . play it like a poker champ. Be relevant.
If you or your church do not know where to begin or would like some advice on how to protect the few or many people in your pastorate there are many security experts in the US that can help you assess your situation and get appropriately armed to the teeth.
Lastly, obviously, I’m thinking as good Christians we should send a message to all the evil bastards that remain out there that we are here to help them and will walk them through whatever funky stuff they’re having to field.
However, if you, the struggling and confused guy with a gun, won’t let go of your demons, know this: We are watching you, we are prepared for you, and we will have no problem whatsoever dropping you in your tracks as soon as you draw your weapon on innocent people.
Yes, the wages of sin is death, and we’re now here to inflict it if you force our holy hand.
Or maybe, dear, sweet, turn-the-other-cheek Christian, you’re saying ‘that’s not my thing’.
In that case, read this and rethink your position.

The rest of you that are on-board, well, we’ve got the perfect shirt for you.
The men and women in law enforcement that serve and protect us are commendable, but the response time means that they don’t get there when the bullets are flying.
Are you willing to wait 20 minutes for the police to show up?
It’s an issue that needs to be discussed within our churches and addressed by our church leaders.
We need some righteous badassery in the church to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our brothers and sisters in Christ from the preventable evil in this world.
We need to Obey Jesus.
Including what he said in Luke 22:36.
He [Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.
