  1. we don’t need ‘armour bearers IF we walk in the Spirit ! Show me anywhere in SCRIPTURE that JESUS used HIS disciples to protect HIM from any harm? JESUS did the exact opposite ,HE told HIS disciples that HIS KINGDOM is NOT of this world ,otherwise HIS disciples would have fought for HIM.He told peter after cutting off the soldiers ear ,to put his sword DOWN!How about that for not trusting in the arm of flesh!???Scriptures are the ONLY way we have of KNOWING GOD’s direct and perfect will for US WHO BELIEVE and are born-again of the SPIRIT of GOD.Amen!

  2. Read the above and pleasereply only if you can confirm your opinions withGOD’s HOLY WORD!

  3. Walking in the Spirit does not mean than one abandons common sense. It is totally foolhardy for a church to not have adequate security! Are the children of the world smarter than the children of light? Are we to not to be sober and vigilant against the advances of our adversary? Are we to be ignorant of the devices that our enemy employs? While we ponder on these things I must admit that being deep has cost many Christians. It is totally foolhardy to not protect our leaders. The Scriptures are filled from cover to cover with men who took righteous actions, bold stances, and yes even men that fought! Let’s not be so deep that we drown!

  4. Yes, but Jesus could be raised from the dead we can’t. In the times we live in it is most certainly important to have strong men and women standing to protect us as God’s servants in a vital role of protecting the church facility, offerings, services, people, children and leaders. How many pediphiles, con artist, thiefs, robbers, muggers, rapist do you think go to church on Sunday to find weak unprotected victims, not to mention those who have mental/emotional issues that attend the church just like this woman.

  5. Preach my brother!

  6. Pastor Smith, I understand what you’re saying. The enemy is not playing games with the true people of God and he’s trying to take them out By Any Means Necessary. You don’t have to be super spiritual to understand the type of spirits that we deal with today. We are not dealing with no weak, soft demons these spirits have been equipped to kill steal and destroy. Furthermore, if you’re no threat to the kingdom of darkness don’t worry he will just tap you on the hand and let you go. But the real ministries on the front line that’s walking in authority and have a revelation of his tricks and attacks, thats who he wants to take out. So lets stop being so traditional and wake up, it’s the traditions of men that make the word of God to none effect……

  7. In regards to self defense and being a Christian I must say that Christ did not eschew the sword. Rather he taught the sword in its proper place, and that those whose only resource was violence would inevitably perish by it. In Luke 22:36-38 Christ admonishes us to be prepared to provide for our own security vis a vis the sword.

    Luk 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    Luk 22:37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

    Luk 22:38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

    We can argue about the meaning of this Scripture, but the fact remains that Christ told His men to arm themselves. When they returned to him with two swords, he did not correct them as He did at other times when they mistook His teachings, but rather told them that two was enough.

    The sword was meant for physical protection against evil men in a fallen world. It was not to be relied upon exclusively, but rather kept in its proper place and for its proper use.

    Consider the context. Christ was being arrested and surrounded. It was His mission to give himself up and be sacrificed. If His men stood and fought at that moment they would have been killed. Those who took up the sword at that particular time would have certainly been killed by the swords of the enemy. Christ would not tell His men to arm themselves and later contradict His teachings.

    I still believe fully that the Gospel has never taught us to be pacifists, but rather that we are to, as much as we are able, to seek peace. But the context is clear. Not at any price. This is reality, and to ignore is both naive and irresponsible, and smacks of an excessively lofty and spiritual view of things. There is a point where we must pick up the sword, or at least support those that do, so that we can continue to live in peace. Clearly, to have peace, one must often be willing to fight, to kill, and to die for it. To have peace, we must often enforce such a peace with the readiness to do sudden battle anywhere, anytime, and with disregard for our own safety. Whether in an airplane facing terrorists or in a dark parking lot facing muggers, it is the holy duty (and the cross put in front of us) of any able-bodied Christian man of God to stand strong with courage and righteousness and execute wrath on those who would do us evil.
