comment What Doctrine Supports The Christian Gun Culture?
@Greg: Very true. I think that's in 2 Corinthians.

comment What Doctrine Supports The Christian Gun Culture?
caseyr547's appeals to Wikipedia notwithstanding, Matthew Henry and John Wesley also both taught that Jesus' words were metaphorical. All references are available in the respective authors' commentaries. Cf. Mt 10:22-25, Mt 26:52. No hard feelings, caseyr547, take care.

Ad hominems are not necessary, caseyr547. While I'm new here, the purpose of Christianity.SE, as I understand it, is to have a mature and factual discussion about Christian doctrine and history, absent emotional antagonism. Have a nice day.

Hi casey547, that's an interesting perspective. FYI, it looks like both Calvin and Clarke taught that Jesus' words in Lk 22:36 were metaphorical -- that he specifically was not advocating literal weapon ownership. I'm trying to wade through Matthew Henry on the same verse right now, but I expect he taught the same.

comment What topic in Theology does Tozer's “The Saint Must Walk Alone” fit under?
That's one. Haven't read it myself, but I've heard it's worth considering.

I've not read The Saint Must Walk Alone, but if you're looking for material on discipleship, I've heard that Bonhoeffer had some interesting, if sometimes controversial & not-entirely-orthodox things to say.

comment According to Reformed Theology, are Catholics Christians?
Calvin wrote at length about his views on what he called "the Papal Church" (i.e. the Roman Catholic Church) in book four of his Institutes. And Luther was not bashful about calling the Pope the "antichrist" and the "man of lawlessness" that was described in the NT epistles.

Typo. Great answer.

comment What's the difference between the Gospel and the Bible?
Can you provide a reference for your statement that Luke "knew [Jesus] personally?" Calvin, Henry, Clarke -- and many more -- all taught otherwise. See Luke 1:1-4. But maybe you mean "knew" in a "spiritual" sense.
