Special Guest: Pr. Bryan Wolfmueller

Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller of Hope Lutheran Church in Aurora, Colorado and co-host of Table Talk Radio is our special guest. Pr. Wolfmueller explains the medieval doctrine of the three estates, and how Martin Luther's interpretation of it was the key political insight of his career. The original idea was that there were three "orders" in life: those who worked, those who prayed, and those who fought. The home, the church, and the state. To be a part of one meant you could not be a part of the others. Luther recognized that, unlike the early Church fathers and medieval theologians, the three estates actually overlap and people are a part of multiple "orders."

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill

Sgt. Bill talks about trigger control in this week's Ballistic Minute. He boils three techniques, their advantages and disadvantages: the slow press or ※surprise§ break, prep and press, and fast full press.

When I was 18 years old I wrote a mindless poem about how I could no longer call myself a Christian because of the history of abuse by the Church over the centuries. I walked away from the faith because I could not distinguish the acts of evil humans within the church and the church itself. But I was a freshman in college. Today we examine an article by a ※pastor§ in the United Methodist Church who has decided to reject the cross because others have used it as a symbol in commission of evil acts. What drove her to this conclusion? The acts of an anti-semitic, Trump-hating, Nazi who attacked the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Episode 139 - Living with Fear and Guns Sun, 30 Sep 2018 23:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ Fear is a powerful emotion. Progressive Christians employ fear in two very contradictory ways to push their anti-gun agenda. We gun-owners should have no fear if we have faith and therefore we should not need a gun. And at the same time we should fear gun violence so much that we should support gun control. But God makes it clear that we should not be afraid. We should not worry or be anxious about this world.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Aaron has been with us since episode 8 and over the course of three years he has provided timely and timeless information. Sgt. Bill and I took his Combat Focus Shooting one day class in 2016. It was my first full-day of self-defense training and it was a real eye-opener. Aaron is a gifted instructor and easily makes the complex understandable. When it came time to find an instructor for my wife's license to carry class, I turned to Aaron. Over the course of the next two years I learned a ton from Aaron, through his weekly tips, his articles, his posts in social media, and my opportunities to hang out with him on the show, on the range, on a road trip to the Louisiana State IDPA match in 2017. I will forever be grateful to him for the content he provided for listeners to this show. I am honored to consider him and friend and I know that whatever he puts his heart and mind into next will be a tremendous success.

Prayer of the Week
O Lord, we pray that Your grace may always go before and follow after us, that we may be continually given to all good works; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

Episode 134 - Christians, Gun Control and Government Sun, 26 Aug 2018 23:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ In this episode we bring you a feature-length edition of Clinging to God and Guns where Lloyd and Pastor Bennett consider what God's Word says about government and what we, as Christians, owe the ruling authorities. Leftist gun-grabbers accuse us of loving guns more than God. So we center our discussion around Romans 13, and the idea that government is instituted for our good and ask (and answer) some tough questions. Are we right to refuse to comply with the law if we disagree with it? Was the American Revolution a violation of Romans 13? What about government turned evil? What about gun control? As a Christian, must we comply if the law violates God's law? The questions and answers are difficult and uncomfortable at times, and that's why we ask them.

Episode 126 - Where (Social) Justice and Peace Kiss Episode 126 - Justice and Peace Get it On Sun, 01 Jul 2018 23:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ In March of 2018, progressive clergy held an interfaith press conference held at Augustana Lutheran Church in Portland, Oregon, led by Augustana's pastor, Mark Knutsen. Knutsen describes Augustana as a holy place where "justice and peace kiss." That press conference launched the the "Lift Every Voice" campaign to gather signatures to get an "assault weapons" ban on the November ballot. In another feature-length segment of Clinging to God & Guns, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett analyze the incoherent ramblings from that conference and unmask the opportunism, fear-mongering and ignorance behind the campaign.

Mid-Week Meditation #18 - Why Don't We Protect our Schools? Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:00:57 +0000 https://www.google.com/ Lloyd shares his thoughts on the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and why protecting our kids isn't a priority in Congress.

So, this week, we saw another school shooting. this time in Parkland, Florida, about 50 miles north of Miami.
A disturbed 19-yr-old, who had been expelled for disciplinary reasons, was not allowed on campus with a backpack because of concerns, had a history of mental illness, who was apparently angry about being bullied, and who flew massive red flags on social media took a rifle and lots of magazines to his old school, pulled the fire alarms to get everyone out into the halls, and began opening fire.

He killed 17, and wounded another 15 in the 15 minutes it took police to respond.

In the end, he was too big a coward to eat a bullet himself, and was arrested without being injured himself.

At age 19, the shooter was prohibited from owning a handgun. Unlike Trayvon martin, who posed with real guns he was not allowed to own, this week*s shooter posed with airsoft and pellet guns. But, in one photo which he captioned his ※arsenal§, he did have two shotguns, two hunting rifles, and an AR-15 pattern rifle.

Where he acquired his rifles, we do not yet know. The minimum age to purchase or possess a long gun in Florida is 18.
Students at his former school say they all knew he was a time bomb. That they all saw it coming.

He was angry. He was weird. He was always getting into trouble. Ultimately, he was expelled and staff was warned not to allow him on campus with a backpack. So, the school saw it coming, too.

It*s not legal to open carry in Florida. Yet he did openly carry the rifle to the school. It*s illegal to carry a firearm onto school property. And yet he did.

It*s not legal to shoot people unless it*s an act of self-defense. He did that as well.

Chelsea handler and other leftist harpies immediately blamed the NRA. Which shows you what a moronic broken record the left has become when it comes to violence in America.

The Left has their mantras. Background checks. Gun bans. Magazine capacity bans. Blame the NRA. All of it bullshit.
But the Right has their own mantras, as well. It*s a mental health issue. You can*t legislate evil. Good guys with guns. Background checks are an infringement of muh rights.

Much of the right*s favorite catch-phrases are bullshit too.

In this case, it was a mental health issue. As was the case in aurora, Tucson, and Newtown.
But in all those cases, like this one, the killers were not in the system. Not because the system failed. But because there was no reason for them to be there.

You must be committed to a mental institution, or be a felon, or a domestic abuser or have a protective order against you to be denied your 2A rights. None of those applied to the shooter this week.

He had apparently seen a mental health therapist, but had never been adjudicated mentally ill or committed to a mental institution. So, how do we stop it? What could have stopped this?

Ignore the idiotic ideas on the left about bans and background checks.

Like the killers at columbine, this kid was apparently bullied. combined with mental illness, and the recent death of his mother, the fuse for this kid was lit. and it was short.

At what point could this have been stopped?

The fact is, criminal record or mental illness or none, someone evil enough to consider killing their former classmates at school will find a way to do it.

At one of the schools in a system where my wife once worked, a student was found to be plotting a mass-casualty attack. The most detailed plan local law enforcement had ever seen. It didn*t involve knives, or guns. it involved blocking the school*s exits and releasing an airborne toxin, a gas made from household chemicals, fed into the school*s air handling systems. This disturbed student didn*t plan to shoot up the school. That student planned to exterminate every person on the campus like the gas chambers at Auschwitz.

She didn*t need a gun. You heard me right#she didn*t need a gun. Her sick plan did not include one.
Fortunately, someone discovered her plan and reported it to authorities.

Evil will find a way.

But our answer can*t stop there. It can*t be to throw up our hands and say, ※you can*t legislate evil,§ or ※we live in a wicked world.§ Those things are true. evil exists and it will find a way. The sin in the heart of man is the reason men and women do such terrible things to each other. So, what do we do?

Taking away guns from people who do not abuse their rights is not the answer. Killers steal, make and find weapons whether you ban them or not.

Magazine capacity bans? The shooter had ※countless magazines§ according to the local sheriff. Although they have counted them so it*s not like he had a bag of holding from D&D with a warehouse full of mags inside. But clearly, he had a bunch. Like the shooter at VA tech or the one at Sutherland springs. Since he had time to reload multiple times, it doesn*t matter.

So, again, what can we do? The sad truth is that acts of evil cannot be prevented. And in this sick society we have created, it should not be surprising. It should be expected.

No, children should never feel unsafe in an American school. or any school for that matter. but from Beslan, to Bath Township, to Columbine, to Monash University, to Kauhajoki, Finland, or Emsdetten, Germany, or Dunblane, Scotland, children have been killed in the places they should have been safe. at school. Why? because schools are easy targets for mass killers.

There are never armed citizens, thanks to the gun free school zones act. There*s almost never an armed guard or resource officer. The targets, students and teachers, have limited ability to escape. The hallways make it easy to funnel targets into fields of fire. And police will not arrive in time to prevent you from killing lots of people. At this Florida school, it was 15 minutes. By that time, the shooter killed 17, wounded 15, then blended in with his intended victims as they were evacuating.

What law would stop this evil? Nothing.

You could raise the minimum age to purchase a long gun to 21. Except for members of the military or law enforcement who are under 21, I have no problem with this.

But more importantly, we could secure our schools.

How did this guy get into the school? Were exterior doors locked? If the school told staff to prevent him from coming on campus, how were they supposed to do that? What plans or precautions were in place to prevent him, or anyone else, from coming into that school with a weapon? He was wearing a gas mask, so maybe they didn*t realize it was him.
According to the national center for education statistics, there are over 98,000 public schools in the united states, elementary and secondary schools.

NCES stats for 2015-2016 show that 69% of schools had at least one violent incident on campus. 15% had at least one serious violent incident 每 rape, sexual assault, physical attacks or fights with weapons. 8% reported threats of physical attacks with weapons.

But despite those threats, just 72% of public schools has full or part time security on campus at least once a week. not every day. once a week. You may think, hey 72% is higher than I thought. That sounds high, right? Only 52% are sworn law enforcement. And of those, close to 20% are not armed. Only 43% of carry a firearm. Only 48% are full time. This means that over 23,000 schools don*t even have a part time, unarmed security guard.

After the Newtown massacre in 2012, the NRA proposed a solution called national school shield. Because the idea didn*t involve gun control and it was proposed by the eeeevil NRA, it was lampooned and ignored. In the six years since, what have we done? Not much. During that time, we have had numerous school shootings and the democrats continue to tilt at windmills, hoping just one more tragedy will move public opinion on gun control. the politics are the important thing. not your kids.

School Shield trained its first school three years after Newtown and has apparently done nothing since. either the program is dead, or it was never serious and was just a publicity stunt to divert attention from the gun control debate. From what I can see, it just withered on the vine. There*s no indication, aside from a video and a place to donate money, that the program is even active anymore. My guess is that nobody, not even the NRA, took it seriously.

If you want to save lives, we need to secure our schools. Hiring 98,000 officers at let*s say 35000 per year would be a 3.4 billion dollar a year program. That*s a lot of money, I can hear you say. Well, consider that federal agencies waste over 100 billion a year in erroneous tax refunds, Medicare payments and unemployment benefits to people who have jobs. The us government spends nearly 7 million dollars every minute. The department of veteran*s affairs spends nearly 200 million a year on buildings they don*t use. We spent 2 million dollars apiece to train 145 moderate Syrian rebels during the Obama admin. The DOD spent 2 million to develop robots that can play jazz.

With the money we wasted on the F-35 joint strike fighter, we could have funded armed schools resource officers for every school in America for 130,000 years.

The point is, we would rather waste money on studying world of Warcraft, or cow farts, or studying male prostitutes in Vietnam, or genital washing programs in South Africa or to help Pakistani mango farmers#than we would to protect our children.

Because if we protected our kids, where would Democrats get the dead kids they need to push for gun control?

]]>
Lloyd shares his thoughts on the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and why protecting our kids isn't a priority in Congress.

So, this week, we saw another school shooting. this time in Parkland, Florida, about 50 miles north of Miami. A disturbed 19-yr-old, who had been expelled for disciplinary reasons, was not allowed on campus with a backpack because of concerns, had a history of mental illness, who was apparently angry about being bullied, and who flew massive red flags on social media took a rifle and lots of magazines to his old school, pulled the fire alarms to get everyone out into the halls, and began opening fire.

He killed 17, and wounded another 15 in the 15 minutes it took police to respond.

In the end, he was too big a coward to eat a bullet himself, and was arrested without being injured himself.

At age 19, the shooter was prohibited from owning a handgun. Unlike Trayvon martin, who posed with real guns he was not allowed to own, this week*s shooter posed with airsoft and pellet guns. But, in one photo which he captioned his ※arsenal§, he did have two shotguns, two hunting rifles, and an AR-15 pattern rifle.

Where he acquired his rifles, we do not yet know. The minimum age to purchase or possess a long gun in Florida is 18. Students at his former school say they all knew he was a time bomb. That they all saw it coming.

He was angry. He was weird. He was always getting into trouble. Ultimately, he was expelled and staff was warned not to allow him on campus with a backpack. So, the school saw it coming, too.

It*s not legal to open carry in Florida. Yet he did openly carry the rifle to the school. It*s illegal to carry a firearm onto school property. And yet he did.

It*s not legal to shoot people unless it*s an act of self-defense. He did that as well.

Chelsea handler and other leftist harpies immediately blamed the NRA. Which shows you what a moronic broken record the left has become when it comes to violence in America.

The Left has their mantras. Background checks. Gun bans. Magazine capacity bans. Blame the NRA. All of it bullshit. But the Right has their own mantras, as well. It*s a mental health issue. You can*t legislate evil. Good guys with guns. Background checks are an infringement of muh rights.

Pastor Bennett was unable to be with us this week, so Lloyd is tackling this week's article on his own. In a piece for the Religion News Service, freelance journalist Tom Verde tries to suggest that carrying guns in church is supported by neither Scripture nor church tradition. He provides a series of bad historical examples, misinterprets or takes out of context a number of passages of Scripture, and ultimately fails to prove the point.

Prayer of the Week
Almighty and everlasting God, Governor of all things in heaven and earth, mercifully hear the supplications of Your people and grant us Your peace in our time; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill With the cold weather here in Texas Sgt. Bill is taking the opportunity to do some maintenance on his equipment to prep for the coming IDPA and USPSA seasons.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense Aaron was unable to be with us this week.

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine Mia was unable to be with us this week.

Clinging to God and Guns Pastor Bennett was unable to be with us this week, so Lloyd is tackling this week's article on his own. In a piece for the Religion News Service, freelance journalist Tom Verde tries to suggest that carrying guns in church is supported by neither Scripture nor church tradition. He provides a series of bad historical examples, misinterprets or takes out of context a number of passages of Scripture, and ultimately fails to prove the point.

Prayer of the Week Almighty and everlasting God, Governor of all things in heaven and earth, mercifully hear the supplications of Your people and grant us Your peace in our time; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Episode 88 - The Worst Sermon in the World Sun, 24 Sep 2017 23:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ In this special episode, Lloyd and Pr. Bennett stumble upon what may be the most reprehensible thing they have ever analyzed in the 88-week history of the show. With all the technical glitches we endured to put this show together, we thought jokingly that Jesus didn't want us listening to it. But it's more likely that Satan didn't want us exposing it. ?

Clinging to God and Guns?
Dr. Roger Ray is the pastor at Community Christian Church in Springfield, Missouri. His ※church§ is a progressive liberal echo chamber that puts the pursuit of social justice ahead of the Gospel. In this week's episode, we look at a ※sermon§ from the Sunday after the Charleston church shooting back in 2015. During this speech, Dr. Ray uses nasty ad hominem attacks, twisted logic, meaningless stats, and outright lies to demonize those who disagree. All while claiming to desire meaningful dialog and discussion. The world, he says, has no meaning unless you give it meaning through your works, and the deaths of the victims in Charleston and Newtown mean nothing unless we can pass gun control.

Prayer of the Week
O Lord, we implore You, let Your continual pity cleanse and defend Your Church, and because she cannot continue in safety without Your help, preserve her evermore by Your help and goodness; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Episode 78 每 The Armor Of Light Sun, 09 Jul 2017 23:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ In this special episode of Armed Lutheran Radio, Lloyd and Pastor Bennett take on a sermon by Rev. Rob Schenck. The sermon is part of a series of presentations in support of Rev. Schenck's collaborative documentary film ※The Armor of Light§ which follows Schenck's road from conservative Evangelical Christian, to social justice warrior anti-gunner.

Programming Note
This week's entire show is dedicated to the sermon by Rev. Schenck. The commentary was so long it would require editing out over half the audio to fit it into the usual format. As a result, Aaron, Mia and Sgt. Bill will be back with us in Episode 79.

Clinging to God and Guns?
This special episode is wall-to-wall Clinging to God & Guns is dedicated to a sermon by Rev. Rob Schenck, who thinks our support for gun rights gives Christians a bad name among elitists in Washington, DC, so he's out to change that. According to him, owning a gun presents a temptation to evil, but we're just too stupid to see it because we are in darkness. That's why we need to cast off the darkness, put on the armor of light and support expansive gun control.

Prayer of the Week
Grant, O Lord, we implore You, that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by Your governance, that Your Church may joyfully serve You in all godly quietness; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

Plus a Ballistic Minute tip from Sgt. Bill, and a self-defense tip from Aaron Israel.

Gear Review: Canik TP9SF Elite
Lloyd reviews this striker-fired pistol from Turkish manufacturer Canik55 after using it to place 4th at the Oklahoma State IDPA Championship.

Commentary: We Need Emotion Control
Liberalism is the politics of emotion. And the progressive, anti-Trump left, has lost control of their emotions. Given the level of irrational fear and hatred on the Left, the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia was only a matter of time in coming.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
Shooting prone ain't fun. There are three basic ways to do it, and Sgt. Bill shares his thoughts on each technique.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Aaron Israel urges us to think differently about gun safety and to use safety rules that have integrity.

Mia was unable to join us this week but we hope to have her back next episode.

Clinging to God and Guns
Pastor Bennett was unable to join us this week so Lloyd is flying solo, tackling a segment from the Things Not Seen podcast, featuring a PhD named David J. Dunn. Dr. Dunn thinks you are childish for not wanting to give up your ※dangerous toys§ in order to save the lives of children and he tries to convince you that Jesus told his disciples to buy swords, because he wanted to ※look like a rebel§ by hanging out with armed troublemakers.

Prayer of the Week
O God, the Strength of all those who put their trust in You, mercifully accept our prayers; and because through the weakness of our mortal nature we can do no good thing, grant us the help of Your grace that in keeping Your commandments we may please You both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.

Uphold us with Your almighty arm. We are not worthy of Your love and mercy, for we have sinned and often done evil in Your sight. Blot out all our transgressions through Christ*s precious blood. Fill our souls with peace. Give us the grace to put all our trust in You. Let Your healing hand rest upon us day after day. Enable us by Your grace to rise above all our suffering to praise You, whose will is wiser than our own. Keep us in Your saving grace, and abide with us all the days of our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 23:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ This week on Armed Lutheran Radio Lloyd and Pastor Bennett dissect a sermon from 2012 by a Presbyterian pastor who based her sermon title on a bogus quote from Saint Augustine of Hippo and suggests that we are all sinners if we don't vote for politicians who support gun control. ?Aaron Israel responds to an question from a member of the Reformation Gun Club, and Sgt. Bill talks about preparing for a sanctioned IDPA match. ?

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
As Sgt. Bill heads to the Razorback Shootout in Perryville, Arkansas this weekend, he shares his thoughts on how to prepare for a major IDPA match.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Reformation Gun Club member Dave Hegenauer asks about training when there's nowhere nearby to train.

?Clinging to God and Guns
※Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are courage and anger; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.§ That bogus quote is widely attributed to Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) and served as the inspiration for a sermon by a Presbyterian pastor in the wake of the Newtown school shooting in 2012. Funny thing is, though, try as we might, we could not find any evidence that Augustine ever said such a thing. And how does hope give birth to anger?

Prayer of the Week
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who sent Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon Him our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross that all mankind should follow the example of His great humility, mercifully grant that we may both be guided by His patience in this life and also be made partakers of His resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Episode 58 - Transgressors Carry Swords! Mon, 20 Feb 2017 00:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ This week on Armed Lutheran Radio we take a look at maybe the goofiest interpretation of Scripture to date. A California Quaker who suggests that Christ's call for His disciples to buy swords in Luke 22 was so that he could fulfill the prophesy to be numbered with the lawless because, we all know what lawless do. They carry swords! Plus tips for Mia, Aaron, and Sgt. Bill.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
Dummy rounds are a useful addition to your dry-fire practice gear. There are lots of different styles and options to choose from. Sgt. Bill breaks down the pros and cons and shares his favorites.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Establishing rally points will help you coordinate with family members during a critical incident, should you get separated and technology fails.

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine
Mia expands on Aaron's vehicle preparedness tip from Episode 57 with a story of her own about why you should not only have tools in your vehicle, but know how to use them. And the importance of teaching your family as well.

Clinging to God and Guns
Quakers are inherently pacifists, so you kind of know what you're going to get when they write about guns. But this interpretation of Luke 22 may be the goofiest we've ever seen.

Prayer of the Week
O God, because You know that we dare not put our trust in anything that we do, mercifully grant that by Your power we may be defended against all adversity; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Episode 57 - Guns and Life Sun, 12 Feb 2017 23:40:06 +0000 https://www.google.com/ Liberal Christians like the Presbyterian Church want congress to pass more restrictive gun control because all life is precious and killing is antithetical to the will of God. ?But like Jesus's call to take the log out of your eye before pointing out the speck in your neighbors, they fail to recognize that their argument for life when it comes to guns directly contradicts their position on other forms of life.?

Ballistic Minute -?With all the divisions and classifications in IDPA it can be confusing for a beginning. Sgt. Bill gives us a rundown on choosing a gun, a division, and gear for IDPA.

Clinging to God & Guns - Pastor Bennett could not be with us this week, but Lloyd takes on a sermon from the Presbyterian Church USA, written shortly after the George Zimmerman verdict, and illustrates the church's gross hypocrisy on the issue of guns and life.

Clinging to God and Guns - Pastor John Bennett and I debunk the second part of last week's article which suggests (wrongly) that Christians have no right to self-defense. In today's article, the author discusses defense of life and family, and comes to the same conclusion thanks to his own political bias and willful ignorance of the context of the Bible passages he quotes.

Episode 36 - Do Christians Have a Right to Self-Defense? Mon, 19 Sep 2016 05:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ On this week's episode we discuss the goofy gnostic musings of a gay Presbyterian who thinks that Bible-believing Christians have no right to?defend?their lives, homes, or property.? A look at my violent allergy to jazz hands, and?great tips from Sgt. Bill, Aaron, and Mia.

Mia's Motivations - Mia Anstine has advice for how to choose your next training course by evaluating what you hope to accomplish and what you want to learn.

Fundamental Defense - Aaron Israel's weekly self-defense tip is about learning to be a better problem-solver. The gun is a specific solution to a tiny subset of problems that we might face. Many of those problems can?solved before the gun ever needs to come into play if you learn to avoid trouble, de-escalate, and learn from the mistakes of others.

Ballistic Minute - Sgt. Bill warns against becoming the "Gamer Guy,"?a?type of shooter you've probably seen on the range and you should take pains to avoid emulating.

Clinging to God and Guns - Pastor John Bennett helps us debunk an article written by a gay Presbyterian at Patheos.com, who argues that the Bible can't be taken literally, but those who do should not own guns because we are spiritual being having a physical experience and the Bible warns us that possessions are not important, certainly not important enough to kill over. Or something.

Episode 34 - How to Teach Kids About Evil Mon, 05 Sep 2016 05:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ With the advent of the 24-hour news cycle and social media, our kids are exposed to news about mankind's horrific acts of evil more often than ever. ?From ISIS to cop killings in Dallas, to home-grown acts of terror like Orlando or 9/11, or school shootings like Newtown. ?We can't totally shelter our kids from this information, so how do we explain these terrible acts of evil to our children? Pastor Evan Goeglein of Faith Lutheran Church in Rogue River, Oregon joins us again to discuss the subject.

Episode 33 - #StandWithCap Mon, 29 Aug 2016 07:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ We're geeking out in this week's episode! ?When Massachusetts Atty. General Maura Healy thanked actor Chris Evans for his support for her authoritarian gun control expansion by using the hashtag #StandWithCap, it rubbed the wrong way those of us who grew up with the iconic Captain America of the comics. It's just another subtle way the left is undermining and usurping the traditions and imagery of American values to support big government. ?We'll talk about the parallels between the Civil War story line from the comics and the gun control debate with Brandon Warr of War Zone Media.

Ballistic Minute - Shooting partials in IDPA is a different test than USPSA. In IDPA hard cover, actual stage props, and non-threat targets can present you with part of a target, and mistakes can be costly. Sgt. Bill explains how to attack the different types of partials you might face in an IDPA match.

Fundamentals of Defense - Aaron Israel gets back to basic and discusses the ※AOJ Triad§ 〞 Ability, Opportunity, and Jeopardy 〞 and how they are used to determine when it is appropriate to use deadly force in self-defense. Beyond knowing the law in your state, understanding this concept is key to deciding if you are justified or prosecuted for a defensive shooting.

Mia's Motivations - Mia Anstine builds on Aaron*s tip from last week, discussing how to arm your older children as they go off to college. They can*t take a gun with them, and in many cases even less-than lethal weapons are forbidden. You can arm them with the gift of fear and intuition.

Ballistic Minute -?The ability to call your shots is a critical skill for competitive and defensive shooting. ?Being able to put your sights on target, pull the trigger, and know, without looking at the target to confirm, just where your bullet struck. ?Sgt. Bill discusses how to develop this skill in today's Ballistic Minute.

Fundamental Defense -?All too often we train and prepare for the threat from the active shooter, the stranger in the alley, the bump in the middle of the night. ?In today's tip, Aaron Israel reminds us that many times the biggest threat is one you know personally.

Mia's Motivations -?Not every self-defense situation requires us to draw our weapon, let alone to shoot. ?In many cases it's better to retreat, or avoid conflict and call police. ?Mia Anstine recommends you consider in what situations it would be appropriate to present and use your firearm.

Episode 22 - Understanding 41F Mon, 13 Jun 2016 11:00:00 +0000 https://www.google.com/ On this episode of Armed Lutheran Radio we're back from the Stars & Stripes Regional IDPA Championship in Tulsa with 12 tips for creating great IDPA match stages. ?Sgt. Bill has talks about the advantages and disadvantages for reloading hot loads versus soft loads. ?Aaron Israel talks about what to expect in the aftermath of a self-defense shooting. ?And our special guest Eric Woodward, the owner of 199Trust, joins us to talk about firearms trusts and ATF regulation 41F.

We offer our condolences and prayers for all those affected by the horrific terror attack in Orlando, Florida. We pray that our nation will awake from it's politically correct slumber and recognize, finally, the threat we face. We must recognize that the gun is not the problem. It is the evil in the hearts of men who wield them to commit such atrocious acts.

O God, the Protector of all that trust in You, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy, increase and multiply upon us Your mercy that, You being our Ruler and Guide, we may so pass through things temporal that we finally lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord. Amen.
