Wayne Grudem recently delivered a two-part lecture on the ownership and use of weapons (self defense) and the death penalty from the perspective of what the Bible teaches. I encourage you to download these lectures to your MP3 player and listen to them when you get the chance. For those of you who are of the same persuasion as Greg Boyd in that Christians ought to be 100% pacifistic in their disposition, I believe you will be quite surprised to discover what the Bible says on the subject.
More talks by Wayne Grudem, including more lectures from his book “Politics – According to the Bible: A Comprehensive Resource for Understanding Modern Political Issues in Light of Scripture“, can be found here.
