Community churches are now arming themselves
In the first weeks of 2020, legislators, most of them Republicans, have introduced 13 bills allowing armed security in places of worship. The flurry of lawmaking began just days after a gunman killed two people in late December at a church in White Settlement, Tex., before an armed volunteer shot and killed him. The volunteer’s action won praise for a state law that allows parishioners to carry firearms.

Laws under consideration in Florida and Missouri would allow anyone with a concealed-carry permit to bring a firearm into a religious building. In New Jersey, a proposed law would allow houses of worship to select one person to carry a handgun for security. And in Virginia, Republicans have introduced four bills to repeal a law that bars the carrying of weapons in a place of worship “without good and sufficient reason.” ...

Dispensationalists should be apolitical ❗👍
Joseph D. Harder, Ph.D. wrote:
As described earlier, dispensationalists typically see things getting worse—much
worse—before the rapture. Thus, the conventional wisdom has usually been that dispensationalism tends to push its adherents toward political quietism: why bother with social reform and political activism when such efforts are doomed?* In the middle
decades of the twentieth century, this conventional wisdom generally held true. Dispensationalists did, for the most part, focus on “saving souls” and on charity work that
was designed to ameliorate rather than reform social conditions....

*As Russell D. Moore summarizes this “conventional wisdom”: “From its very beginnings
within J. N. Darby’s Plymouth Brethren, dispensationalism has engendered a skeptical view of
governmental and ecclesiastical power structures that historically has not lent itself to animated political
participation.” Moore, “Till Every Foe Is Vanquished: Emerging Sociopolitical Implications of Progressive
Dispensational Eschatology,” ....

excerpt from, ("Heal Their Land": Evangelical Political Theology--From the Great Awakening to the Moral Majority)

I too find it shameful that one need qualify a church as political or apolitical. Is there a definiton of said church?

At neither should attacks occur. But if they do, then may the Lord defend His people through whatever means He has ordained. And let us not forget our brethren overseas who suffer greatly at the hands of their oppressors and not neglect the same prayer for them. May the Lord be our strongtower of defense through His manifold means.

Sinners will sin and churches will be attacked by the wicked. This's no different from any part of the world. Workers of iniquity tax, muzzle, sue, assault, rape, steal, torture and kill believers.
The last two thousand years and the Bible prove this.

You're making assumptions and rash judgments.It is not a sin for christians or churches to arm themselves. There's no Bible verse/s that are against self defense. There're no "Apolitical" churches just as there're no"Atheists". We all to hold to some kind of political view; whether saved or lost.

It's a shame that churches that are apolitical need to defend themselves, from nutcases I'm beginning to think most violent attacks on religious groups are on those who are not politically active, so they need some means to protect themselves. (Texas shooting details supercharge NRA's 'good guy with a gun' defense)
