To resolve conflict with
the word of God –
not the barrel of a gun.
The answer can’t be that I need to buy a gun to protect myself from my neighbor who has a gun. Nor can the answer be that you need to buy a gun to protect yourself from me or my neighbor who have guns. That’s not the kind of world any of us want to live in. It is certainly not the world envisioned in the Bible when it says, “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14)
Statement of Concern
There is a moral crisis in the evangelical church when it comes to following popular gun culture over the model of Jesus. We invite pastors to share in our concern.
Devotional Sign Up
Written by evangelical pastors and theologians, our weekly devotionals cover the main causes of and solutions to tragic gun violence.
Mass shootings and other tragic gun death experiences require pastors to perform at a level beyond their normal capacities.
“Everyone knows what it is to be afraid.”
Fear is a natural emotion felt by every human being sometime in his or her life. For Christians, the question is not whether or not we experience fear, it’s how we deal with it.
The Word of God
Do Not Be Afraid
What Protects the Sanctity of Life?
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
