With Blitzer, Carson added: “[T]he likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed.”German citizens were disarmed by their government in the late 1930s, and by the mid-1940s Hitler’s regime had mercilessly slaughtered six million Jews and numerous others whom they considered inferior … Through a combination of removing guns and disseminating deceitful propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.
Like another has said, I dont see the connection between the verse you provided and the title of the thread.What does the Bible say about this and the meaning is pretty clear,
1 Timothy 5:8
“But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.”
Yes, you got it,I'm missing the connection between this and gun confiscation, unless the point being made is that a man has a moral duty to provide for the protection of his family, and for that reason government is doing something it shouldn't do when it disarms us. If that's the point I am in agreement.
To me though the verse shows the evil in what we call welfare, which works together with feminism to replace the father, who is the natural provider, with a caring big brother in government. Culture is born of the common religious belief of a people. As America was led to turn its back on God, the culture naturally followed. So the man went from being the provider and protector of the family to the man being nothing but a source of money, with that money taken from him by government, and government schools providing the guidance that had been provided by the father.
I always provided for my family, and there were times I was so poor I could barely feed them. Even long before I was saved, when I was young and stupid and not even especially moral, I did hard, miserable work, because it was the best way I found to feed my family. I was even addicted to nicotine at the time (and it's a really strong addiction), but when it was a choice between feeding my habit and feeding my family, my family came first (that might be partly why I was able to quit years later). At the time, that was just what men did. It took a lot of government interference to change that, remove the father from the family, and get masses of people addicted to welfare.
One day Christians will lay down their arms,I still really don't understand why Christians specifically are among the most vocal of the anti-gun control crowd. I don't think there is anything inherently biblical about owning weaponry. I get wanting to protect yourself and that, but I think Christians have the wrong idea if they think stricter gun laws is somehow against Christ's teachings. Just my opinion though.
