Perhaps, I could make a Biblical case for the 2nd Amendment and the First Amendment, as well as an armed rebellion against this tyrannical, Godless, pagan, government… perhaps…
2 Chronicles 23:9-17 NASB (9) Then Jehoiada the priest gave to the captains of hundreds the spears and the large and small shields which had been King David’s, which were in the house of God. (10) He stationed all the people, each man with his weapon in his hand, from the right side of the house to the left side of the house, by the altar and by the house, around the king. (11) Then they brought out the king’s son and put the crown on him, and gave him the testimony and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him and said, “Long live the king!” (12) When Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came into the house of the LORD to the people. (13) She looked, and behold, the king was standing by his pillar at the entrance, and the captains and the trumpeters were beside the king. And all the people of the land rejoiced and blew trumpets, the singers with their musical instruments leading the praise. Then Athaliah tore her clothes and said, “Treason! Treason!” (14) Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds who were appointed over the army and said to them, “Bring her out between the ranks; and whoever follows her, put to death with the sword.” For the priest said, “Let her not be put to death in the house of the LORD.” (15) So they seized her, and when she arrived at the entrance of the Horse Gate of the king’s house, they put her to death there. (16) Then Jehoiada made a covenant between himself and all the people and the king, that they would be the LORD’S people. (17) And all the people went to the house of Baal and tore it down, and they broke in pieces his altars and his images, and killed Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars.

Some people could argue and say that since Jesus died and rose again we are no longer under the old Law. Under the new law it is taught that we Christians are to be pacifists in many ways. Forgiveness and turning the other cheek, etc. But I agree with what you brought to our attention. It can easily be argued that we are to bear arms and have freedom of speech and press. And I lean more toward that than complete pacifism. Thank you for posting this. Food for thought.

I am firmly convinced that to do nothing in the defense of the weak, elderly, young, and defenseless when they are assailed by evil is in itself unloving and evil. I don’t believe God would ever want us to ignore a person who is being victimized. We are to seek justice among other things. Pacifism is what satan has been using to make us a nation of victims.
38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take your [am]shirt, let him have your [an]coat also. 41 Whoever [ao]forces you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.
Can you quote scripture to refute Jesus’ teaching on forgiveness? I honestly wonder how far Jesus wants us to go with pacifism vs retaliation.
I encourage you to look into the context of this instruction and then see if it applies to the scenario I mentioned earlier. I think you will be able to spot the crucial difference. If not, let me know, and I will help you out. 🙂
