Episode 21: Humanity’s Value

In today’s age, with what’s being taught in our schools about the origin of life can we honestly say that human beings are of value? If we all evolved from pond scum what right do you have to say that your life has any meaning or purpose? If God didn’t create us or give us value is there truly any meaning to what we do beyond the subjective and the temporary?

I understand, many of those questions are uncomfortable. But they must be thought through nonetheless. In today’s episode I try to talk through those questions and expose the fact that if evolution and atheism is true then our life is worthless and meaningless. However, if Christianity is true our lives are priceless and of the upmost importance.

The Heart of Gun Owners.

For many gun owners there are three things they are very familiar with. Responsibility, terror, and sadness.

Gun owners are responsible people who respect the constitution and the gun itself as a useful and deadly tool. They recognize that a gun has the potential of being deadly and because of this they take every precaution to secure it and keep everyone safe.

They are filled with terror. Now, when I say terror I don’t mean the same terror as crazy terrorist Muhammad. I mean ‘reverent fear.’ Gun owners are terrified that there may come a day that their life, or lives around them, are threatened and they will have to use that gun to protect people. No lawful gun owner ever chomps at the bit to use their gun on another human being. The thought that one day they may be forced to do that in self defense scares the Hell out of them. But, the fact of the matter is that reality shows that people are evil and there may come a day that good people may have to defend Life with a gun. This fact leads into the third and final aspect found in the gun owners heart. Profound sadness.

When a person buys a gun their reaction isn’t always, “oh hell yeah no one’s going to mess with me cause ‘Merica!” Many times, the thoughts going on in their head before, during, or after purchasing a firearm is, “God, it’s sad that this is necessity in our world. But, I know I have the right and responsibility to protect myself and those around me. This is necessary. I just hope I never have to use it on anyone.” When a gun owner thinks of reality and the fallen state of Man he becomes profoundly sad that a gun is necessary in our world. Nothing would make a gun owner happier than if Christ were to come back, set up an earthly kingdom, every human was perfect, and that they could then “beat their guns into plowshares.” But, the fact of the matter is that that hasn’t happened yet. People are still attacking each other, wars are still being waged, murder is still happening (and rising in countries with strict gun laws), rape happens, and governments still exterminate their people. All of this is part of reality and it must be understood and accepted. The gun owner does that and it makes him sad because of the state of humanity.

Because a gun owner recognizes reality they gain responsibility, terror, and profound sadness. So, the next time you hear someone say, or elude to, “gun owners are the problem.” Or, “the NRA is a terrorist organization.” Just remember, no law abiding gun owner ever wants to use their gun on anyone. But, they know that, because of the way things are, they might have to in order to defend Life. Gun owners are good people. Try to get to know one and ask them, “what made you decide to buy your first gun?”

Today we conclude our talk with my friend who studies at UW Stevens Point. We finalize our discussion about how “free” and “accepting” college campuses are.

How are you received by others if you stand up for the Second Amendment? You may be shocked at the answers.
