I grew up in a Southern Baptist family. Decendant of a preacher. We were in church 6 days a week. And I have read the whole Bible more than once.

I have a copy of the New Testament on my night stand.

Don't ask me to remember the Cayley-Hamilton theorem from my college books, though. Even if I read it again, I wouldn't be able to remember what it's all about. LOL!

God fearing men/women are the only people willing to put their life on the line to protect their beleifs and to protect those who don't beleive in what they do!!

Just study our "Founders"

Christ was not as passive as some want to think. He overturned the money changers twice, He allowed weapons carried by his follower's, how else was the slave of the high priest ear cut off!

There are warning though, if you want to live this way.

Not to take anything away from recurvy (she is one of my heros) but a Google search of a part of the quote finds the answer in about 2 seconds.

“if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

He told this to his disciples at the last supper. It's in Luke chapter 10 somewhere, but I'm not sure which verse (I am not home...I can't find a Bible here at the moment, or I would look it up quickly).

Luke 22-36. I also have done quite a bit of reading in both the old and new testaments. It did take a bit to look it up though.

I believe that a really excellent attorney might be able to argue a case based on these passages, so I agree with you. BUT, even our religious leaders have had strong disagreements regarding whether or not these particular scriptures are metaphorical or literal. The reason that these passages have stuck in my head is because in the past I have read arguments from both sides. I am still confused as to the answer to that debate.

The opposing attorney will surely bring up parables and metaphors.

I would like to see it argued in court. It would be a nice challenge for some hotshot attorney. If s/he won, s/he would be forever famous. Unfortunately, I don't have the $$ to initiate that kind of a lawsuit.

Thank you for that post. It cleared up some long-standing questions that I had in my mind about these particular passages.

<i>"So, the 2nd Amendment is guarding the Freedom of Christians to practice their faith as well as the overall Right to Keep and Bear Arms."</i>

The Second Amendment ultimately guards the entire Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Without it, they're just meaningless paper. It is the reset switch in case tyranny usurps these documents.

So yes, the Second Amendment protects the First Amendment rights of free speech, a free press, freedom to assemble, and freedom of religion.
