Here again my points about modern Christian's conscience.
Dirty: I only have a problem with justification of current gun oriented Christians in pointing to the ancient Hebrews and claiming that since they killed and conquered nations, they can pack heat. They can do what they want, but I find it untenable to drag the OT into it.
This sort of logic was used to justify slavery in pre-American Civil War times, because the Jews had slaves.
This sort of logic is used by polygamists today, because some Jews were polygamists.
I think the use of carnal force is a matter of a Christian's conscience and counsel with the Lord Himself, not by a gun club, or political lobby.
