Perhaps like many other Americans, you just grew up with guns. Learning how to shoot and to hunt — the thought of doing anything evil with a firearm never entered your mind. With the constant bombardment by the liberal media, you may think they have a point, in order to prevent tragedies such as the Sandy Hook massacre.
Pastor Reg Kelly examines the Holy Scriptures for an answer to this debate at the God, Guns, and Liberty Conference, scheduled for February 26 th at 7PM at Bethel Church 1233 American Legion Dr. Festus, MO. There is no fee for this Conference. No registration is required.
The entire conference will also be aired live online.

So, angry callers swamped the phone lines of The Dana Show this afternoon wanting to excoriate the popular Christian talk-show host for wanting to engage in culture.
Dana live-tweeted the Oscars last night while watching the glamorization of ego event…and some on the Christian right were infuriated at her for wanting to engage in culture. These people argue that by any engagement in modern-day culture, one is promoting and contributing to the leftist Hollywood agenda.
Seriously? Seriously. I’ve got some news for you. Christianity is under attack here in America, in case you haven’t noticed. This is a cultural war we are in the midst of. Politics is downstream of culture. Until we reign in the culture, there is little that anyone will be able to do regarding violence, abortion issues, domestic issues, marital issues, abuse issues…shall I go on? First, we must recapture and inject pure biblical principles back into our society. What happened to honesty, humility, compassion, responsibility, purity, and respect? Until we obtain these, the rest is moot. The only way to achieve this is to engage in the culture that promotes the antithesis of Godliness.
And just a reminder: Without cultural engagement, we would never have had Elvis, Johnny Cash, Bob Hope, Ronald Reagan, Charles Schultz, CS Lewis, or, of course, the show Growing Pains! Could you imagine?
Christ calls us to engage, specifically, in Matt 28 16-20. I wouldn’t argue with that. Just sayin.
