    i was wondering if anyone has a list of Bible references that speak in support of self defense. i know, i know, i should find them myself, but that would take time and i'm hoping some time in the next couple of days to speak with some people from church about what the Scriptures say have to say on defending yourself.

    There are indeed many - my favorite has always been:
    Luke 22:36 (KJV);
    Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    From the lips of Jesus the Christ; it is more important to be ARMED than it is to be CLOTHED.

    That is a great thread!

    OP, here's a link that was posted in that thread. I think it's worth a look.

    I may also tell you; "It may be better to send your friend to sites like the above instead of personally trying to persuade them."

    Good Luck-
