“To Keep or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Guns

This book is in the final stages and is written by Pastor Chuck Baldwin, and his son, Tim, who's a Constitutional attorney. For those of you who don't know who Chuck is, he's the most vocal voice, in the Christian church today, fighting for TRUTH, LIBERTY, and FREEDOM. He was the Constitutional party's candidate in 2008 (and may I add, was ENDORSED BY RON PAUL that year for POTUS).

Chuck is has been a long-term contributor at a great news and commentary website, www.newswithviews.com. He relocated to the Kalispell, MT area a few years ago, where he has the Liberty Fellowship church. I highly recommend watching is weekly message that is streamed live at 2:30 MST every Sunday. www.libertyfellowshipmt.com/Resources/LiveStream.aspx
You can also watch video sermon archives. I highly recommend this one - specifically addressing the gun control issue - www.libertyfellowshipmt.com/News/tabid/56/ID/54/Christs-Law-...
