What Would Jesus Allow?

29 Mar

Okay, last question… and I’ll try to make it quick. I’ve asked about the coming and the going or rather the coming and the going and the returning of Jesus as those of us who are Christians have learned about it from the Bible or through our various Christian faiths.

Most seem to believe that there will be a return of Jesus to Earth and that it will involve a final reckoning of sorts including possibly a great battle that will destroy most of the people on Earth but leaving some, maybe millions, to enjoy the 1,000 years of peace under the rule of Jesus and the Saints.

Reading about Armageddon always makes my head spin because it makes little sense to me that the “Prince of Peace” or “Lamb of God” would come back to lead all of the children of God in major fisticuffs but that’s the story…so

Here’s my question (And you Biblical scholars out there just might have a spoiler alert that renders my question a bit moot) but here goes…

Jesus returns, great battle ensues, billions are killed, millions survive to live in peace on Earth under Jesus’ rule…

Does Jesus allow the survivors to own guns?

A) yes, freedom means all you can carry!

B) No, what just happened? Duh!

C) yes, but with very strict registration, education, testing on how to use them properly and safely, and licensing laws.

D) Who needs laws? We’re all God loving/fearing Christians now!

    An interesting question indeed, however, all the answers are based upon mans laws. Under Jesus rules, He will be the law. Man’s laws will pass away – for obvious reasons because clearly we are incapable of governing ourselves. With Jesus in charge, He will be our protection and His laws will prevail. I think that renders all the above answers irrelevant.

    Great question. Another, especially in view of Tyler Roberts’ comment: will there still be free will? (I suppose some will debate about whether it exists NOW, but without free will, all that punishment would be pretty mean…)

    What would one do with a gun if everything is hunky-dory? I suppose if you just wanted one because you enjoy loud noises and the smell of hot lead Jesus would sigh and make it out of wine (the same wine he made from water).

      Actually, yeah. Not sure about the wine, but there are Bible passages that indicate that the things that Christians value (provided they are godly) will be in Heaven. So, maybe guns for some people. I think there’s a Labrador retriever with a frisbee waiting for me.

        Your thought about the lab dog made me smile. It is the simpler things in life that truly are the best.

    A gun is just a tool, like a hammer. I personally don’t think Jesus cares what tools we own, rather what we DO with the tools.

    On an end of the world note, one theory I think makes sense is it will be solar flares of EMP proportions that knock out and fry most of the circuits of the world and the utter chaos is what brings the destruction. Let’s face it, a lot of our society wouldn’t do well if electricity was suddenly gone everywhere. EMPs affect transportation as well, since we have chips in everything now. Our food supply is really only good for about 3 days in the grocery stores.

    My understanding is that all this chaos happens and then Jesus comes, silencing the chaos, but I don’t claim to be a scholar. But it’s always fun to entertain theories about the end of the world. 🙂

    I would think D – but that would mean all the remaining Christians would either need to be vegans or get handy with a bow and arrow or spear –

    Only in America .., (sigh)

      First thought- there wouldn’t be a need for guns. There would be no killing. Maybe for things like leisure though, shot practice but not shooting living things.
