No, Gun-Grabbers and Pacifists Are Not “Loving Like Jesus”

Gun-grabbers and pacifists sometimes try to categorize themselves as the ones who are following Jesus in his command to be willing to lose your own life.

They consider their position to be the obvious outworking of the command to “take up your cross and follow me.”

But they haven’t established that they are following Jesus by being pacifists.

Think about the people historically who fought to establish our rights.

It was at great personal cost that they fought the American Revolution or other turning points in history.

In many cases, they were the ones taking up their cross to follow Jesus.
