Are you ready to shoot and kill another human being?Submitted by gsmiro on Thu, 05/02/2013 - 08:18
With the second amendment argument going on, most of us are up in arms about the government taking our rights away from arming and defending ourselves. However, one question for all of you here:
Are you ready to shoot and kill another person? He may be an armed intruder into your home. He may have intended to rob you, hurt you and/or your family. He may have intended to kill you or do a number of evil things. But are you ready to shot him and possibility kill him and live with the fact that you have send someone to hell (very likely) for the rest of your life?
Have you gone through the logical steps of defending oneself with a deadly firearm? Are you willing to go through the psychological consequence of killing somebody?
From a Christian perspective, I have heard a very famous and respected preacher (from the 19th century) said that a man of God should never take anyone's life. To those Christian brothers and sisters here, you may agree or disagree, but why and please support your argument with Scriptures.
For non-Christians, what would be your justification for taking a life or not taking a life?
