Setting Brushfires 09-20-2019: When It Comes To Gun Confiscation Laws, None Of Them Can Make A Moral People
There are many people in America and around the world that believe that restricting, regulating and confiscating people’s property, namely guns, will somehow make society safe and the people moral and not commit crimes, but is that true? We’ll explore that in this episode.
Articles, videos and Bible verses cited in this episode.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. -Galatians 3:24
Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; -1 Timothy 1:9-10
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? -Jeremiah 17:9
But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation, while it is practising iniquity and extravagance, and displays in the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candour, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in the rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the world. Because we have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. -John Adams, letter written on October 11, 1798, to the officers of the Massachusetts militia
