Jon says: I love your show. I'm a Christian cop and a so-so competitive shooter. I've been in 4 police shootings and I've been forced to take peoples lives. I live by the gun.
Jesus Christ is Lord over my life and sometimes I fear guns have become idols to me. About 10 years ago, I got rid of most of my guns. I gave them away to friends and fellow cops. I had to prove they weren't my master. I also got rid of the TV and haven't got one since. It was a little awkward because friends and family thought I was going to kill myself. I had to reassure them of stability to get them to accept the gifts.
About 5 years ago, I got selected for rifle school on the department. I didn't really want to do it, but after the school I became a gun nut extraordinaire. I'm afraid it is an example of when a demon is purged, everything is swept clean but the demon returns with 7 more and things are much worse for the person after the demons return.
My family and I call it Gun Procurement Syndrome (GPS)
Signs and symptoms:
-owning more than one gun you haven't fired.
-searching through gun magazines for some motivation.
-You don't know how many guns you have or you have more than 5 and you know the exact number.
-The deceitfulness of your heart convinces you you need another gun for such and such purpose because of such and such reason.
-Filling out the paperwork to buy a new gun is an emotional release that brings comfort.
-refamiliarize yourself with an old friend from the gunsafe.
-clean a dirty gun
may God bless you and draw you close.
Brice says: “I just recently got my CHL, and part of our state law requires that permission be obtained before carrying in a house of worship. Because I recognize the vulnerability of churches to predators, I dearly want to carry in church. However, I come from and attend an extremely conservative church that is traditional pacifist (I kind of broke the mold). I was wondering if you had any suggestions for how to broach the subject of church carry to the leaders who have almost certainly never been asked about this idea.”

Weekly Bible Verse: James 5:13-16
“Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” (NIV)
