"Should Christians Give Up Their Guns?"

From Pastor Chuck Baldwin, via JPFO:
Not since 1775 has a central government in America attempted to disarm its citizens in the way that President Barack Obama and Senator Dianne Feinstein did recently. King George III attempted to disarm the colonists on April 19, 1775, and that attempt ignited America's War for Independence. Leading the charge to resist the banning and confiscation of their firearms were colonial pastors such as Jonas Clark.

Back then, America's pastors had a thorough comprehension of the Biblical principles of liberty, including the right to keep and bear arms. They taught their congregations these sacred principles with such zeal and persuasion that the attempt by those British troops to march on Lexington and Concord and seize the colonists' guns was met with the now famous "shot heard 'round the world." Ever since that historic event, the people's right to bear arms has been held sacred by the vast majority of Americans--Christian or otherwise. The right to bear arms was understood to be, not just a right, but a God-ordained duty, a long time before it was ever enshrined in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

About the only time I can think of where I might do so (as a Catholic) would be in Holy Obedience to my Bishop. If I die in that Obedience, I think it might be a type of martyrdom.

WSF, I'd have to ask myself whether such an order was based on a Biblical foundation, since that Bible tells us otherwise. But that's a question only the individual involved can answer.
