Go ahead. Make my day.
In case you didn’t know, the Pyromaniac isn’t a pacifist:
Several years ago, at the church I was attending at the time, we had a kind and godly deacon who had served as a counselor in our church for many years. He was also a city cop. One Sunday he shot and killed a drug-crazed reprobate who drew a gun in the church parking lot during a church service. It was his duty as an off-duty officer to do what he did. It was also, according to Romans 13:4, his biblical duty.
Sometimes church discipline has to be done the hard way.
This just days after Steve Camp outlined his approach if he had been taken hostage instead of Ashley Smith:
I would have reached for my Beretta, called 911, and ministered the gospel to him. If he tried to hurt me or my family in any way, I would have trusted the Lord that my aim was straight and the clip was full… and then “ministered to him” in a different manner.
Both attend the same church. Not sure if I attribute their views to that fact or an excess of testosterone, but you may want to watch your step if you attend Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. These guys shoot from the hip, and that’s not a figure of speech.
Correction: Steve Camp now lives in Nashville, and is a former member of Grace Community Church. Guess you’d better be careful in Nashville too.
