Let me start this post by stating my position. I am pro gun. I started learning safe gun practices and marksmanship at around 5 years old with a BB gun. I’m also a former Army MP and civilian police officer.
There’s a lot of talk these days about guns, self defense and everything that goes with this topic. Actually, I was debating with myself this morning about which of my firearms would be best to defend myself and others if I’m not at home.
But then God offered me another thought. Am I protecting myself from the true enemy? Am I daily and continually arming myself with the “Whole Armor of God“? I’m often reminded of this verse from Ephesians chapter 6:
10A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
