Matthew Henry in his IFB accepted commentary says of this verse:

This is intended only to show that the times would be very perilous, so that no man would think himself safe if he had not a sword by his side.

Quick note.  If that is what M.H. says, he is wrong and opposed to Scripture, clearly.  I have not gone to look him up, and won't.  If you want to quote him in context, a paragraph or more at least, you may do so and we might find out something more then.

Not the safest way to hold a rifle but other than that she's a keeper.

Exodus 20:17-19. King James Version ... Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his .

On balance it seems that Jesus is not telling the disciples to buy actual swords.

If Calvin said that, he is totally wrong, as are any who believe and follow him.

I’m here for you, are you part Jehovah witness?

You are not here for me.  I asked the other poster simply to indicate that he had replied to something not addressed to him.   It's okay to do so, and often done,  but I did not know if he had realized it or not.

What do you think Jehovah witness thinks ?   Did your 'pastor' or 'teacher' tell you something about them ?

Yes,  those holding a Bible have shown themselves to be far far worse and more vicious murderers than most terrorists .

Holding a Bible,  claiming to be God's representatives on earth,  millions were slaughtered without mercy.

Far worse morally and far more in number than Iran or other called terrorists today.

excerpts of a few of them: 

  • Like today, lying was morally acceptable to Christians then. "Peace treaties were signed with every intention to violate them: when the Indians 'grow secure uppon (sic) the treatie', advised the Council of State in Virginia, 'we shall have the better Advantage both to surprise them, & cutt downe theire Corne'." [SH106]
  • In 1624 sixty heavily armed Englishmen cut down 800 defenseless Indian men, women and children. [SH107]
  • In a single massacre in "King Philip's War" of 1675 and 1676 some "600 Indians were destroyed. A delighted Cotton Mather, revered pastor of the Second Church in Boston, later referred to the slaughter as a 'barbeque'." [SH115]
  • To summarize: Before the arrival of the English, the western Abenaki people in New Hampshire and Vermont had numbered 12,000. Less than half a century later about 250 remained alive - a destruction rate of 98%. The Pocumtuck people had numbered more than 18,000, fifty years later they were down to 920 - 95% destroyed. The Quiripi-Unquachog people had numbered about
    30,000, fifty years later they were down to 1500 - 95% destroyed. The Massachusetts people had numbered at least 44,000, fifty years later barely 6000 were alive - 81% destroyed. [SH118] These are only a few examples of the multitude of tribes living before Christian colonists set their foot on the New World. All this was before the smallpox epidemics of 1677 and 1678 had occurred. And the carnage was not over then.
  • All the above was only the beginning of the European colonization, it was before the frontier age actually had begun.
  • A total of maybe more than 150 million Indians (of both Americas) were destroyed in the period of 1500 to 1900, as an average two thirds by smallpox and other epidemics, that leaves some 50 million killed directly by violence, bad treatment and slavery.
  • In many countries, such as Brazil, and Guatemala,
  • this continues even today.

Yes, the implication of killing others is evil. There is no need for a person to have such a rifle.

The rifle is not evil, this rifle can be over 20 years old. It has not kill anyone at all. Why? It’s the owner that makes it evil. Like the Bible we carry, if it’s in the wrong hands, it can send many good people to a place called Hell. 
 

Is this true or false, what I’m saying to you.

Amen.

Also,  if thousands,  or ten people,  or millions,  are caused to stumble by the photo,  and things associated with the photo,   then would not that make it evil/ sinful ?

It is not a sporting rifle. It is designed and built to kill people. No one has a need for one. If it wasn't built no wrong hands would ever hold it.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
