“And they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning knives.” –Isaiah 2:4 (NASB)
I realize that after my three previous blog posts, all dealing with abortion and the Supreme Court’s recent overturning of Roe v Wade, some people might say “You support saving babies in the womb but what about kids in school?”
It’s a common comparison and one that cannot be ignored. With the recent murder of 19 school children and 2 teachers at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas, once again everyone’s attention is turned to gun control and what could have been done to prevent this tragedy.
There is also a refrain from Leftist politics that suggests Republicans and Christians (the two are almost always lumped together) are complicit in such deaths as long as they/we (I’m a believer but not a Republican) uphold the second amendment or, to quote former President Barack Obama, “…cling to guns or religion…”
Is it true that all American Christians “cling” to our pro-life values only up until a child is born and then “cling” to our love of firearms thereafter, leaving school children and other innocents at risk?
