This week on Armed Lutheran Radio Lloyd and Pastor Bennett fisk a video from the Faith and Firearms Project, an interview with an ELCA pastor who thinks people own guns because it's the American thing to do and thinks that those who own guns ascribe to a "theology of scarcity." Plus an uplifting message from Mia, a self-defense tip from Aaron, and a follow-up to a story from episode 52.
Fundamentals of Defense - Aaron Israel talks about the practice of keeping a gun on your night stand and why that's a bad idea.
Mia's Motivations - Mia shares thoughts on joint suicide prevention efforts by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the NSSF and the affect that negative media has on suicide rates.
Clinging to God & Guns - Lloyd and Pastor Bennett review an interview with an ELCA pastor who doesn't seem to know much about guns, or his congregation, and thinks the questions of gun ownership comes down to a theology of abundance or a theology of scarcity.
Prayer of the Week - Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we implore You that we, who do worthily deserve to be punished for our evil deeds, may mercifully be relieved by the comfort of Your grace; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
