I donít have a problem with someone having a drink or a smoke and I know the Lord donít want to see me dance! But like my pastor says; being a Christian you have every eye on you and if you mess up someone will bring it to your attention. By the way I just had some good fellowship with a brother in Christ and another Elder in our church. Last Saturday we spent the day at the Perry County gun bash at New Lexington Ohio. It was a great time and my 18 year old son enjoyed also.
See Romans 14.
One of the questions I was asked in getting my firearms certificate was how I could resolve it with my religion. I simply said that my father was a pastor and I had grown up with guns. They are tools like the hammers and axes and plows the pioneers brought with them when settling their new homesteads.
