TRUTH ON A TEE SHIRT AND A TAKE-AWAY LESSON
I saw this on a tee shirt recently. “If guns kill people, I guess, pencils misspell words, cars drive drunk and spoons make people fat.” This underscores the insult-to- anyone’s-intellect idiot talk of the “Guns kill people so let’s control, restrict, ban, gun ownership” argument of those who want to deprive Americans of our Second Amendment right to own and bear arms—a right that the Founders understood was essential to the protection of all our other rights from the potential overreach of a government become tyrannical (Which is what we have in America today).
The take-away lesson? Just as guns, in, of, and by themselves don’t kill people any more than pencils misspell words, cars drive drunk or spoons make people fat, Bibles in, of, and by themselves don’t make people better. Having a Bible on the shelf at home or on your lap in church doesn’t set some sort of spiritual osmosis into play. The Bible, by just being there, isn’t going to impact your home or you. Having a Bible in and of itself doesn’t mean a thing. It’s what you do with it that counts. Read Psalm 119.
