More things to make you question the validity of the bible:<quoted text>
Why do so many Christian Fundamentalists in this country support gun ownership anyway? Doesn't it pretty clearly contradict Christian (pacifist)ideology? What weapons did Jesus ever carry around or use, or support the use of? In fact, doesn't Jesus say you should allow yourself to be repeatedly slapped (Matthew 5:39)?
John 18:10.“Simon Peter then, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his right ear; and the slave's name was Malchus.”
Why would jesus allow someone in his party carry a weapon? Goes against everything that he preached.
And if you were present at the time and see jesus pick up the ear and reattach it, wouldn't you be too flabbergasted to arrest him?
