The Bible and Self Defense

Bob S, of Three Boxes of BS, has an excellent pair of posts breaking down what the Bible says about self defense. If you struggle with the concept, you ought to go read.

The Bible and Self Defense (Pt. 1)

Lawyer,

Thanks for the shout out on those posts. I had thought of sending them to you before posting but wanted to get them up as soon as I can.

If you have any suggestions on areas I missed or misunderstood, I would appreciate any comments.

Thanks again

You have, as usual, done a great job. I imagine, though, that this would be a never ending enterprise. New defenses will lead to new objections, which then have to be addressed, and around we go. In the end, I guess that's what makes research fun.

This does bring to mind a conversation I had with a friend regarding God's covenant with man, and how that affects the concept of self defense. That's something I'll have to research some more and unpack.
