Why Christians Need to Talk About Gun Violence
If you don't want a peaceful conversation, bring up guns. During the past several years, few issues in America have been as contentious.
And while mass shootings continue to bring gun violence into the spotlight, the conversations about how to prevent these shootings often devolves into emotional shouting matches. And often, Christians land on the side of shouting for their right to bear arms.
In her new documentary, The Armor of Light (which opens in select theaters today), filmmaker Abigail Disney invites evangelical Christians to re-examine their views on gun ownership—not as a political issue, but as a moral one. The film follows the Rob Schenck—president of Faith in Action and chairman of the Evangelical Church Alliance—as he grapples with whether Christians can truly claim to be pro-life and also pro-gun.
