Pastor Brady Boyd from New Life Church in Colorado Spring is registered to carry a hand gun, but he doesn’t carry when he preaches: ”“It could be dangerous for a pastor to be shooting back in a big crowd of people. My church is safe because we have the right people carrying guns.”
Pastor Larry Dickey of First Baptist Church in Sunizona, AZ, however, thinks he’s the right guy in his church to carry a gun: “I do so because there is a need for people to understand that we need to defend families and ourselves…We are not a nation that understands how important it is to be vigilant in safely handling a firearm in a defensive manner – with courts and other segments of our society thinking if we are unarmed, we will be a safer people.”
Two different points of view.
Or maybe you think that guns should not be present AT ALL on Sunday mornings.
I’d love to hear where you (and your church) stand on this issue.
