I’ve heard more and more discussion on churches and guns recently. Should churches take a stand on gun control? Should churches allow guns (conceal and carries) in their services? It’s all part of a bigger debate that’s taking place in our country since the horrible Newtown shootings.
Brady Boyd, the pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs was recently on the Christian Broadcasting Network. Brady should have a valuable opinion on this subject, since New Life was the scene of a horrible shooting a few years back.
According to Boyd:
“Gun control is not an issue that should be on the front line of the churches. Violence is another topic. We should be talking about violence… In fact, two Sundays ago I stood in front of my congregation and I challenged the parents who are allowing these violent games in their homes.”
What do you think?
Are we having the wrong discussion here?
Is this really about guns? Is it more about violence? Or mental health? Or, IS it about guns?
Here’s Pastor Brady’s interview on CBN:
I’d love to hear your comments… Are we having the wrong discussion?
Do you / would you allow guns in your services? Why or why not?
