    Blasphemy or Heresy?

    This GOP representative from Texas by the name of Matt Schafer declared that people had a "god-given" right to have arms according to the Second Amendment. He went on to say that "arms" meant not only guns but bazookas, artillery pieces and even nuclear weapons. but aside from his claims, when he mentioned god-given right was he being blasphemous or heretical in his words?

    Just remember that at the time the Bible was being written there were no guns and so the word does not appear in the Bible.

    The 2A doesn't specifically protect the right to keep and bear "guns". It says "arms".

    Thats why I carry the amputated arms of dead enemies, good for bludgeoning the heads of fools who say something stupid I don't like.

    I don't know if having arms is a "god-given right".....but I do know that the Apostles were
    armed during the time of Jesus. They're not packing guns or semis....but they were armed with weapons of that time, nevertheless.

    I suppose it is a right to defend one's self.

    How can a Christian seek protection in firearms and at the same time live in harmony with the Bible’s requirements? That is a question each and every Christian should ask themselves...Micah 4:3; 1 Peter 3:11...

    There are many instances where God told Israel to attack with weapons and destroy their enemies and the enemies of God. Yes, we should be seeking to be peacemakers. But, that's another issue. The right to defend one's self and others is also doctrinal and sound in the scriptures.

    Yes, those were holy wars Jehovah God Himself directed...there has not been a holy war directed by Him since...Jesus taught "pray for your enemy"...Paul added to that "as far as it is possible with you, be peaceable toward all men"...that includes fighting in a war where you could possibly kill your own spiritual brother in another land...
