All this because I asked - what would Jesus say about guns?
I think it's a logical question - the Vatican being widely recognized as a special patch of God's turf
So far all I get is - Jesus says stuff...but we pretty much do what we want anyhow
Our Messiah's disciples carried swords during his ministry, as evident when they could produce 2 swords on the table immediately when he told them to
buy swords, to fulfil the prophecy of his mortal end times.
Those swords carried all the while were for defence, and at no time did the disciples provoke or cause any violence, except during the arrest of our
Messiah, which he stopped it. One who lives by the sword will die by the sword, he said. This is a simple truth. When you pull the trigger, the other
party too will have a gun and pull the trigger too.
Weapons will kill us all, but when we use it only for defence and not provoke violence, we will most certainly get to live longer, while those who
sought to harm or kill by the sword, will themselves face chances of death with much permanence.
However, our Messiah's ministry is not about weapons, but rather, on the soul and salvation of mankind, to follow moral and ethical guidelines so that
we may all co-exists in peace, progress and evolve. The focus was on helping and enlightening mankind in world that had gone astray, and still is
today, and enlightenment do takes time.
May the pope not lose that focus, but who is instead focusing on inanimate objects as he is doing now.
