Our society’s fascination with guns has carried over into the Christian community. Is the issue of increased gun violence and gun use in our country a Christian moral and theological issue? Should Christians be armed and prepared to kill in self-defense?
These and other questions were the subject of The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute’s “The Gospel & a SideArm” Forum in Washington, D.C. Our President, the Rev. Dr. Rob Schenck, was joined by fellow evangelical Christians and a distinguished panel that included Rev. Dr. Preston Sprinkle, Bishop Rev. Dr. Garland Hunt, Rev. Dr. Dave Kistler, the Honorable Suzan Johnson Cook, and Rev. William Turpie.
