Thread: Carry in church vs. church culture

  1. CHurch Carry

    Not going to church may be an option for some, but it's a non-negotiable for me.
    Here in Texas, CC in a place of worship is, technically, not allowed, but there has to be a legal sign (Tx 30.06) posted. No sign means you can carry. My church has no such sign. In fact, our pastor brags about having the safest church in the Dallas area. There are at lease 8-10 men that carry, and I know of a couple of women as well. In the words of Mr T., "I pity the fool who comes here looking for trouble." They might just find it
    Jesus tells His disciples to be wise as serpents, but gentle as doves. Concealed means just that; nobody knows you carry, but it would be unwise in this day and age to ignore the troubled world around us. Much of that trouble is aimed at Christians and churches are the most visible representation of Christianity.

    Same in our church here in Fort Worth. Most of the staff is armed, I know of a number in the choir and a lot in the seats, It is a good size church so I would not be surprised if there were 100 or more armed during the average service.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    I'd imagine that concealment is much easier when wearing a choir robe. Accessabilty night be an issue though. Perhaps HK, you could design a tactical choir robe.

    Line from a later scene in that movie,
    Vincent Vega says, after being shot at six times by a kid with a 44 magnum who failed to score any hits, "Thanks Marvin, you didn't tell us there was a kid in the next room with a f---ing hand cannon."

    Now to digress and plug, perhaps he should have gone to Frontsight and got the proper training.

    Also note that in the later car scene, Vincent Vega commits several serious breaches of firearms safety and gets Marvin killed.

    The movie takes quite a bit of license with the verse..
    Here is what the verse actually says...

    "Ezekiel 25:17 (New International Version)

    I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I take vengeance on them.' "

    Note: " in my wrath" - when I take Vengeance...

    The "my" in: in my wrath, and the "I" -take vengeance - is THE LORD, not any individual..

    Lets remember Romans 12:19 It is not OUR place to extract vengeance, but it is the Lords prerogative...

    Perhaps we need to start a seperate forum for CCW badge discusion so that inane postings like this one can be confined there.

    Ezekiel 25:17 (King James Version)


    17... And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.


    Jules: There's a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you. I been sayin' that **** for years. And if you ever heard it, that meant your ass. I never game much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was a cold-blooded thing to say to a ************ before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some **** this mornin' made me think twice. See, now I'm thinkin': maybe it means you're the evil man. And I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here, he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could mean you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish. And I'd like that. But that **** ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd.
