This response and the one from 8/20/19 2:12 PM
show me you don't care what I think about Nehemiah 4. You have an agenda you are trying to push that I have told you several times is not the same page as what I am talking about. I am not responding to something I am not saying, you have said that you won't either.

good day

Well thanks a million brother. You furnish me with a Bible text with no explanation, Nehemiah 4. I try to understand what it is you are trying to say by it, and all you can do is repeat ad infinitum, "No, that's not it!"
Nehemiah 4:17 KJV
(17)  They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.
Let me just say that whatever the situation, we in the UK are not permitted to do that. So what are you suggesting in posting Nehemiah 4?
Several things are at stake here:
1. The USA Christians can behave differently from Christians in other countries?
2. The Bible can be interpreted differently in different countries?
3. Culture must be taken into account, and there is no such thing as a "Christian way of life"?
4. Church may or may not be separate from state?
5. Dominionism may or may not be viable?
6. Romans 13 may or may not be rejected as God's plan for the new covenant age?
not on the same page John, have a good day

Finally found the story to which your referred. From the article,

“It has been very hard dealing with this situation as every door of justice seems to be closed simply because we follow a different faith.”]
[Pastor Suryam reported an identical experience with authorities to International Christian Concern, saying that every conventional channel of justice had been closed to him,

NOT THE SAME, our government would send police in as additional protection and would NOT prosecute for the killing in self-defense a crazed gunman on our property . Our church protection plan was as in this article trained by law enforcement as to how to act and we have the full support of local law enforcement on our side for what we implemented.
It is NOT THE SAME as these brethren in India.

APPLES AND ORANGES John

You continue to bring up situations that do NOT apply to this article.

I leave your discussion to others, as I obviously do not possess the communication skills necessary to discuss this matter with you.

Sorry John your still talking apples when I am discussing oranges. If you don’t believe in self-defense that’s fine with me. Please make sure you don’t lock your doors, put your money in a safe place, take your keys out if your vehicle or bother looking both ways before crossing the street. Because there is no verse that specifically says you should and you would just be showing your lack of faith.

Esther 8:11a

11 Wherein the king granted the Jews which were in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them

Somehow the Jewish people must have got confused because they celebrate this as God's deliverance for them at the feast of Purim, mentioned by the way in the New Testament

self defense, commended in the scripture

Not the same page!!! Spiritual warfare, God’s kingdom here on Earth are not the same as protecting yourself from crazed gun shooters randomly taking lives. The discussion on the one side is about apples while the other side is talking about oranges Thus it goes nowhere The Bible, as previously pointed out, does address the matter of self-protection in a positive manner (see response to John’s inquiries). If y’all don’t want to acknowledge that it’s on you.

If you want a different answer you’ll have to take random away from the shooter who is killing babies, toddlers, and the unsaved who are also in attendance

You’re not going like my answer. Shoot first and ask questions later.

Yet both were eventually martyred for their faith.

We need to look even at martyrdom with a balanced view. The disciples stopped Paul from speaking to a crowd for fear for his life. He wa let down in basket to avoid being killed. He had two hundred soldiers bring him to safety so as not to be killed for his faith. Peter left to an undisclosed location to preserve his life

I am not on the page and never have been on the page of whether it is right to die for your faith. We agree there. I am speaking about self defense from a random shooter and you keep changing the subject to self defense against those who are specifically persecuting someone for their faith in Christ. We’re not on the same page

Mike already pointed out to you the fallacy of that argument, John, the gunman isn’t out persecuting people for their faith because he is zealous for his faith. You asked for Bible examples, I gave you some. Yours is not applicable to this situation. All people are not being armed. If a gunman comes into my church and starts randomly shooting, yes I will pray, but I also appreciate the concealed weapon carrier that takes him out.

John UK you can’t have it both ways. You ask for Biblical precedent and when you get it you throw it off as reconstructionism

Everything that is available now was not 2000 or more years ago so there isn’t a Bible verse that directly speaks to all modern issues

We live by principles found in the Bible. In Acts 22 Paul used a government allowed defense to stop himself from receiving bodily harm. The principle still stands

Forget the modern equivalents; where is the biblical equivalent where the local synagogue/church trained up its adherents in weaponry to protect themselves from an isolated attack?
Here you John UK.

Try the following passages

Nehemiah 4
Esther 8&9
II Chronicles 23
II Chronicles 32

John UK, Don’t keep with the movie scene or watch much television but am pretty sure the Westerns genre isn’t that popular nowadays. Might be wrong because it is not something I keep up with. Did watch a lot of Westerns growing up and it certainly did not produce the effects you mentioned

David armed with sling and stones, he didn’t kneel down and have a word of prayer when Goliath came towards him. He undoubtedly prayed before he stepped out on the battlefield

John, The law allows for self defense. Thus it is not being a vigilante

So if I sit a home and don’t work, Adriel , saying God will meet my needs and spend time praying for His providence, then do I blame God for my needs not being met? Trusting in God is faith and faith produces works. God is a God of means It is the exception when He intervenes for what He has given man the grace to do. Nehemiah prayed and carried a weapon
