Jesus And Carrying Arms

There is no doubt a sword can kill one or two dozen people in a very short time. You lock yourself in a school class with 30 people and a sword, and you can butcher pretty much all of them, pulp fiction-style, before the police arrives to despatch you. In fact, you would need an awful lot of ammunition to obtain the same results. There is no doubt whatsoever that swords are suitable instruments for a massacre.

Still, it is clear from reading the Gospel that not only Jesus surrounded himself with “Second Amendment Guys”, but that he took care to have (if not all) several of them armed at any given time. I wonder what names Nancy Pelosi would have called him, and I can’t think of any complimentary one.

The reality of the life of the Apostles was one of every day carry. There is no way to ever deny it. Similarly, it is obvious to the most retarded enemy of freedom that all this concealed carrying happened with the knowledge and by the instruction of Our Lord.

Once again, notice this: It’s not that Our Lord wasn’t aware that – to say it in the stupid liberal way – “swords kill”. He knew of their tremendous efficacy for self-defence, which is exactly why the Apostles carried them.

Jesus and the Apostles were obviously in favour of carrying, and it is difficult to think that this carrying was not, on several occasions, open carrying as the Apostles needed to show potential aggressors that they would not hesitate in taking the life of any of them.

It is quite indicative of the times we are living that the leftists (some of them masquerading as Catholics) not only do not understand anything of freedom, but are unable to see the God-given right to self defence so obviously described in the Gospel.

  1. I’ve always assumed Jesus carried a short sword too. Why wouldn’t He? There were bad people – bandits, for instance – as well as wild beasts. (see David’s description of what a shepherd had to deal with). If the Gospels don’t mention it it’s because everyone took it for granted. Simply because Jesus didn’t draw His sword when they came to arrest Him doesn’t mean He didn’t have one. It only meant that “the hour for the Son of Man to be glorified” had come and Our Lord allowed Himself to be arrested. As He said, “No one takes it from me but I lay it down of my own accord”. I doubt the Apostles would have followed a man who said, “I’m not going to protect myself – that’s BAD! – but you guys can take the hits to protect me”. No way.

    • However, it is far more likely that he would allow the apostles to provide for his security and he would, as the person of highest authority, not carry himself. In the same way as the President or the King have armed guards but are not armed themselves.

  2. Well said. Sadly, not to be heard from any pulpit soon. Additionally, Jesus told Peter to Put his sword away, not Throw it away.

  3. True in every sense of the words. I believe we’re loosing this “gun battle” for we’re always in the defense, trying to justify to all these “snowflakes” that we’ve the right to have/carry weapons. Instead, I wish some will start to go in the attack. Maybe presenting/proving that ‘none’ of those lunatic doing all the killing don’t have a permit to carry a gun. Maybe also, just to upset those liberals a bit more, show how many of us that have permits do any of those crazy acts.

    • If you ask me permit matter is irrelevant. If someone kills 70 people with a car no one will question whether he had a driving licence. And the driving is a privilege, the carrying is a right.
