Gun And Alcohol Case Could Put Citizens At Risk In Their Own Homes

“The Ohio Supreme Court will hear arguments in February to decide whether a law prohibiting gun owners from carrying firearms while intoxicated should be applied inside a gun owner’s home,” the Associated Press reported Saturday. Seeing an opportunity for a new and intrusive way to catch more gun owners in the disarmament net, the gun-grabbers are arguing that upholding an arrest is necessary for “the safety of Ohio residents and responding police officers.”

That dovetails nicely (for them) with an overall strategy to disarm citizens convicted of driving under the influence. And it moves things from the public setting right into the home, which is where the long game goal has always been.

My former professor, Dr. C. Gregg Singer, used to point out that the temperance movement was a manifestation of the social gospel, which itself was social Darwinism, or further back, followed Hegel (German synthesis/antithesis and evolutionary philosophy).  Guns are the new alcohol.  Paul told Timothy to drink a little wine for the sake of his infirmities.  But “wine is a mocker.”  It depends on the person.  Guns protect the lives of the innocent, but kill the innocent, depending upon their use.  It’s the person behind the trigger, just as it is the person holding the glass.

It’s the same thing with Pete’s abject failure at understanding anything to do with Christian theology when he connects the Christian faith to a “world without weapons.”  In Pete’s world, no one really needs God, they just need themselves with good leaders, good as defined by Pete and his ilk.  The world isn’t really fallen, we just all need the Bohemian, peacenik, flowerchild Jesus as our example and the world will be a better place.  And little children love puppies, fluffy blankets and unicorns flying over rainbows.

There is nothing new under the sun.  Mankind tried this at the tower of Babel.  God knocked it down.  End of story.  Man cannot work his way to perfection, he has to believe in his heart and confess with his mouth that Jesus is Lord and that he can’t do nothing to save himself.  That’s the scandal of the gospel, and the reason so many men oppose it.

Opposition to the gospel is never an epistemological and philosophical problem.  It always has ethical roots.  Pete’s chosen lifestyle is evidence of his high-handed sin against the Almighty.

Gun control is just another tower of Babel, but I do find it ironic that this latest manifestation includes alcohol.  How appropriate.

    Pete needs to read Luke 22:36. Jesus specifically ordered the remaining eleven disciples to secure their portable wealth, secure their bug out bags, and buy the common infantry weapon of the day. Even if they had to sell to shirt off their back to buy one. Jesus knew trouble was coming and he wanted the remnant to prepare for it.

    So, if you are spending a quiet Saturday night having a cocktail or two at home whilst cleaning your rifle after a day spent hunting, merely by carrying said rifle back to the safe, you would be in violation of the law. This is another law that is so nebulous and has so much room for interpretation that it will be predictably abused to the maximum. That is precisely why it is so nebulous. It’s nebulosity is a feature not a bug. It is designed that way on purpose.

    I’m always armed. Just because I choose to have a beer doesn’t mean I’m going to give up my right to defend myself and my family. Never been a problem and never will be a problem. The state can go fuck themselves.

    I had been thinking about this hippy love child Jesus when I ran across this, which is the beauty of the Gospels, I can’t tell you how many times I had read this parable but this last time it occurred to me that Jesus was pretty, uh, abrupt with people. After a short explanation of the simple truth conveyed by our Lord, I’ll tell you what this peacenik hippy did to them.

    “Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?”

    Why combereth it the ground? Those wicked, perverters of God’s holy Law should be what, given a pass? left to be running wild over all that is good and true and right, over the things of the blessings that Holy God has given them? No they will suffer death, and one most unpleasant. That’s a pretty tough statement by our Lord, think about it, it’s God asking; what are these people still doing breathing my air?

    Now, Jesus came first unto His own. “He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” His own, is referring to the Hebrews. The parable above is directed at the Jews.

    Now, you say might say; well that’s just figurative or illustrative, but I disagree. This is where the American Church is failing you and us as a Nation but mostly failing God. Here we get to Matthew 24, where so many ridiculous prophetic futurisms and even purposefully misleading interpretations of Scripture comes from.

    “And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”

    Now, the disciples hadn’t even asked Him the three questions yet and Jesus volunteers that he will destroy all of the temple, He means all of it, the building, the people, and customs, ceremonies, everything. The first 34 verses of Matthew 24 are NOT about some mystic unknowable future, they are redemptive, and historical fact, read a few verses from back into chapter 23 through verse 36 of chapter 24. And I will show you, prayerfully, that you no longer be deceived by dispensationist mumbo-jumbo and Zionist prophetic futurism lies, how we can know this, as usual, seeking the forgiveness of our gracious host here for the length, but this is on topic, Jesus is not a hippy flower child. He means to judge the wicked unto death, and He did, and He does, and He will. You do disservice to the Lord God when you deny His rejection of a whoring people and therefore His gospel unto the gentiles.

    After this the disciples ask the questions in 24:3, it’s NOT one question about the “end times”, it’s three distinct questions and Jesus takes them in turn. Nothing is hidden here, don’t be confused. The only reason it’s in future tense is because it had not happened yet 2000 years ago, but the first 34 verses are now history fact, the destruction of Jerusalem that took place in the year 70.
    34-36 “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

    “this generation” in verse 34 is NOT some mystical thousands of years long dispensation. That’s what dispensationists do, they take the whole bible literally until it doesn’t fit their prophetic futurism narrative. Well, “this generation” means that generation living when Jesus spoke these words to His disciples. There is no getting around this except to lie or listen to the devil and believe him instead of believing the Holy Bible. So, the preeding veves in Matthew 24 are about what will very shortly take place while “this generation” is still alive. Now, verses 35 and 36, begin Jesus’ dissertation on into Matthew 25 in answer to the LAST question of the disciples, about The End.

    Jesus and His disciples had climbed the Mount of Olives and then the disciples privately ask him the three questions, first of all; when will you, Jesus, who just spoke in chapter 23 of the destruction of the temple, destroy it?. Asking about the destruction of the Temple that Jesus had just volunteered. Then they ask the second question; what shall be the sign of thy coming? This is where much confusion lies because Jesus says that they will see Him coming on clouds (verse 30), but there are other scriptures where the coming of the LORD, in judgement against the wicked is prophesied in this manner. It’s not referring to Acts 1:8-9, it refers back to similar language when the LORD destroyed Egypt many centuries before. Jesus’ reply to the first two questions is the rest is Matthew 24:4 through 34. THEN, and only after taking the first questions in turn, does Jesus address The End, or His second coming depending upon how you view it.

    Now; Read verse 16. Jesus is warning the disciples and all believers back then to get out, He means to kill them all, and He just about did kill them all at the hands of the Romans and some absolutely bazaar behavior that points to true madness. Read Matthew 24 through verse 34 again; this is what the LORD God DID to those wicked perverters of God’s Law who rejected Him in favor of their Religion. All of this happened in 67 through 70 or there about. You can read about it from the position of the historians of that time, but none of them, NOT ONE, of the unbelieving historians was bold enough to not acknowledge that these immense historical facts of the destruction of the temple, Jerusalem, and Judea, and Israel could have been anything other God’s wrath against THAT GENERATION.

    For Jesus himself had said: “Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”

    “For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.”

    This is one of my favorite verses from this passage. It’s about the Roman legions whose banner they would carry and plant at every conquest and, well, you’ll have to do your own research about “the carcase” of that generation.

    I readily admit that the similarities to many of the verses in Matthew 24 seem to relate to today and indeed there are many applications we could make regarding these about ourselves and America and the West. That’s how the Churches are doing you a disservice. They should be shouting from the rooftops; look what the LORD did back then, look at us NOW, repent and believe of the Lord Jesus, and be saved!!!

    You can’t even begin to be thankful enough this time of year.

    Now, re-read the book of Matthew for the first time. Read all that He pronounces against the Pharisees, the Jews, and that generation. Look specifically His announcing the coming curses for their wickedness. It’s about the judgement of an whore, an adulterous wicked perverter of Truth, and the taking of a new bride, betrothed to God’s only Son, His church. Praise the Lord. Imagine, what must be coming our way for our wickedness. No, you won’t be poofed out of here, well you might, but no, you don’t have enough things and like-minded people, not even close. At the LORDs coming on the clouds of judgement, righteous, holy, just, Judgment, there was chest deep blood running in the streets of Jerusalem at the destruction of millions in the year 70 and it spread throughout the Roman empire. That’s your hippy love child peacenik baby Jesus and what He did to His own people!!!

    He left a remnant alive to testify of these things, praise the Lord. Be found about your Father’s business. Use your time wisely.

    [Couple of books: Ken Gentry, the Olivet Discource made easy, and, The Destruction of Jerusalem by George Peter Holford. Read the first one first or if you only get one. The second is out of print, it was written before the current American dispensationist gobbledygook started, but you can still find it around.]
