"Can Christians bear arms and use them to defend themselves?
Sure we can.
Remember again, this book is not to show whether the laws of men are correct. No; and neither is our purpose. The right to use arms if necessary, is not given to humans by a constitution written by humans; although ours, ratified in December 1791, in its Second Amendment provides Americans with the right to bear arms, as it says: “a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the necessity of a free State, does not violate the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” It is thus very clear that in this case these weapons are not for hunting or target shooting, but with the objective of preserving the freedoms of the state, as opposed to the army (any type) that the government owns. Good to have such a document and better be respected and very much appreciated; nevertheless, when everyone tramples it, you must never forget and doubt-not that it is in reality your natural right given by the Creator to you, with the purpose to be used in a world knowingly sinful, filled with struggles and injustices..."
