During the recent presidential election, the liberal, pro-homosexual, pro-Marxist election promoters of Barack Obama got what they wanted.

To young female voters, he offered free abortions and free contraception, along with free education to some and unlimited student loans to others.

To immigrants, he offered free aid and a good job.

To seniors — no longer a need to worry about dying, the government will take care of that.

Those promoters also got a president who supports abortion-on-demand and was on a May cover of Newsweek portrayed as America’s “first gay president.” Did those self-professed believers surrender their biblical convictions?

On another subject, there are many precedents in the Bible for self-protection. The subject is addressed in Luke 22:36 and 38. “He that hath a purse let him take it, and likewise his scrip; and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.” “And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.”

That is plainly addressing the subject of self-defense.
