Exodus 22:2-3

If a thief is found breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there shall be no blood guilt for him, but if the sun has risen on him, there shall be blood guilt for him. He shall surely pay. If he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

A Biblical Response to

Those Who Say We Should Disarm; to

Those Who Teach Pacifism; to

Those Who Think the Bible Has Nothing to Say About Arms

by Pastor Matt Trewhella

Genesis 4:8-12 In this passage, Scripture records the first murder wherein
Cain killed Abel. That Cain must have used some sort of weapon to kill Abel
is evidenced by the fact that Abel was bleeding (he was not strangled). Notice
how God responded to the killing. He did not institute some sort of weapon-control,
rather, He punished the one who committed the crime.

Exodus 20 and following In His holy Law, which God decreed at Sinai, nowhere do
you see God outlawing weapons in regards to the various crimes which He prohibited
in His legislation. He always punishes the perpetrator. He never disarms the citizenry.

Exodus 22:2 In this verse, God declares that if someone breaks into your house at
night and you kill him, you are not guilty of murder. This verse makes clear that
you have a God-given right to defend yourself and to defend your family.

Deuteronomy 22:23-27 This passage deals with rape. Notice that verse 27 ends with
the words "but there was no one to save her." What is the implication of such a
statement? The implication is that had someone been around to hear her cry out,
they had a moral duty to intervene and protect her from being raped. To stand by
would be immoral. We have a God-given right to defend not only ourselves, but also
others.

Numbers 1 In His economy, God instituted an armed citizenry, not a standing army,
in order to deal with the affairs of war regarding Israel. This is what the Founding
Fathers of America envisioned for our nation. Even in Switzerland today, every home
is furnished with a machine gun (one of the reasons Hitler chose not to invade
Switzerland).

I Samuel 13:19-22 The Philistines disarmed the Israelites. Weapon-control was
instituted. No blacksmiths were allowed lest the Israelites arm themselves. A
disarmed people is the sign of a conquered people. A disarmed people is the sign of
an enslaved people.

In the words of a great American C.Heston, They can have my gun when they pry it from my cold dead hand.
In the words of another great American(me) F U you can't have my gun and if you come to take it you better bring help.
