You left off part of Matt. 26:52. Why?

As you know;
Because doing so takes it out of context and implies something different.
Right after that Jesus says;
"Do you think that I can not call on my Father, and He will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen this way?"

Implies nothing different.

As we know, BooBoo, you can't even quote directly.

And yet AGAIN with the dodging and deflecting. Why? Because it proves you used the passage OUT OF CONTEXT.....that's why. And just because you happen to post a link to a source does NOT mean I actually used it, dumbass. What a maroon.

It's isn't a dodge to point out the source was listed and you don't know your bible, DongLiqueer.

It isn't out of context and the source was listed for you to look up, DongLiqueer.

If you knew the bible: you would not have needed the source or the quote, you would have already know it by heart.

"Live by the sword, die by the sword" is a saying derived from a biblical parable to the effect that if you use violence, or other harsh means, against other people, you can expect to have those same means used against you; "You can expect to become a victim of whatever means you use to get what you want."

First line of Wiki entry.

Wipey wipey DonLiqueer.

I don't need to look it up, and Wiki is CORRECT! That parable has NOTHING to do with self-defense, does it???

Matt. 26:52 - "“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him,“for all who draw the sword will die by the sword."

The first part of that verse - "Put your sword back in its place" - does nothing to change Jesus' point.

There is no honest way to use any teaching or example of Jesus to justify gun ownership or gun violence.

No one is trying to justify gun violence, Dan.

Now look up Luke 22:36.

Surely you aren't implying that Jesus was advocating violence. I thought you said you knew the Bible.
