BIBLICAL INJUNCTION ON SECURITY

Share it:

As people who are religious and always trying to balance our actions with the mirror of His words. Now let's go. Is it wrong for a Christian to defend himself when attacked by evil men or women? Does bible support Christians to be security conscious and even possess licensed fire arms for the purpose of defending themselves, their family members, the Church and their communities? Are we only allowed to pray for our enemies and love them even when they are approaching us with dangerous weapons to take our live and the lives of our beloved ones? Does Christ support Christians to defend themselves in event of any attack against them and their loved ones. If I pick up arms to kill a terrorist coming straight to the Church armed to the teeth to detonate a bomb in the congregation, will God judge me as a sinner for committing murder? Let us see the scriptures.

LUKE 22:35 -38 (NIV) New international Version.

35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" "Nothing," they answered. 36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37 It is written: ’And he was numbered with the transgressors’; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfilment." 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That’s enough!" he replied.


I don't care much about the interpretations you may give this portion of the Bible, some Theologians in trying to provide their personal interpretation have represented the sword to mean the word of God. Now the question, the two swords in verse 38 above, does it mean the word of God? Is it the word of God that Peter used to cut off the ear of Marcus when they came to arrest Jesus? So, we have no reason to leave ourselves vulnerable to attacks by the enemies of the Church and the enemies of Biafra. We know we are hated and does that mean we must hate ourselves. It is a sin for a Church filled with able men and women to be blown to pieces by just a miserable looking terrorist. I don't think there is a better way to die than when you die defending what you believe. If defending yourself is a sin, why is your Daddy General Overseer, Bishops and Clergy going with armed security personnel? If you want peace prepare for war. Let us learn from Israelites who were surrounded by enemies as we are surrounded by enemies now.
