Hillary's quote used words to the effect that Republicans who support the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights can't believe in God. She tweeted that if Republicans believed in God then why would they need guns. Really, Hillary? Do you really think that God controls all that we do and it will always end up right if we believe? If that is what you believe then you've missed the point entirely and need to go back and do some serious Bible reading, Bible study and earnest prayer.
I am an evangelical Methodist and I know Hillary was raised in the Methodist Church. Somehow along the way she obviously missed something about free will, for God doesn't force us to do what he wants us to do. It is up to us to decide we want to place our faith in Him unless we personally choose to make another another, earthly choice. But when we make the choice to follow or worship something or someone other than Him, we live with the consequences. So take it a step further. When someone makes a bad choice, has a heart filled with hate and decides he is going to kill an innocent victim, the potential victim has the right to defend himself and the ownership and proper operation and legal use of a gun is one of those freedoms granted us through the Constitution that originated from God.
When we make good free will decisions, follow the guidance that the Holy Spirit provides us when our heart is open, we will use the tools that He gave us to defend ourselves from deadly threats. In the case of the right to own a privately owned firearm, it was granted by the Second Amendment of the Constitution, a document inspired by God to allow man to be free. And by using that tool as God intended, for self defense and protection against an evil mortal threat, we are perfectly within our God-given rights.
Guns have nothing to do with your godliness, they have to do with the right to life, liberty and the pursuit happiness if held in the hands of good, moral people. Hillary needs to accept that but, of course, she can believe and say anything she wants on the subject, she just really should keep God out of her commentary, for she knows not what she speaks.
Sorry for the temporary detour from the Christmas Spirit, but I thought the record just needed to be put straight in accordance with my faith. You can certainly disagree, but I'm not forcing anything on you, I'm just defending my rights. And regardless of your views, I do wish you a Merry Christmas for it offers a time of joy and good cheer that I trust all can enjoy. And I'll be back on subject tomorrow.
God bless you all.
