Jesus’ representative in Georgia, the Reverend Jonathan Wilkins of the Baptist Tabernacle of Thomaston, is suing the state to allow his flock to bring guns into church. Currently, in a grave miscarriage of not only justice, but Christian values, guns are not allowed in church.
Jesus would be excited about this law suit. Had guns been invented 2000 years ago, he would have carried one himself and likely would have been a good shot. He was a carpenter, was used to working with his hands and, least we forget, his father was God.
And Jesus certainly knew the dangers inherent in preaching. A good sidearm might have saved him some painful time on that cross. “Duck Mary, there’s a Pharisee!” BLAM BLAM!!!!
Wilkins, fighting like an onward Christian soldier for the rights of his church flock to fend off felons, will surely get an instant pass with St. Peter, who likely isn’t armed. There is nothing Jesus disliked more than some rabble rouser messing up a sermon and a couple of guns in the congregation is a great way to keep things quiet during the choir’s glory hallelujahs.
Jesus always wanted to protect the weakest from persecution and what better way than with a pistol – that collection plate isn’t filled with monopoly money you know and the ushers are sitting ducks!
Martin Luther King, Jr. could have used a gun and Gandhi…well, Gandhi was a Hindu, what would he know about how dangerous church can be?
The Prince of Peace needs emissaries on this earth to bring his message of love and firearms to the world and Rev. Wilkins is just the man to do it, but if you disagree, please, for your own safety, don’t speak up in his church.
As the saying goes, praise the Lord and pass the ammunition please.
