    Episode 254 - Why Do Churches Support Gun Control?

    Episode 254 - Why Do Churches Support Gun Control?

    Turns out, the majority of American Christians may not actually be Christians. They like their religion with a strong dose of personal opinion, politics, and a heaping helping of heresy. Lloyd and Pastor Bennett discuss the vexing question of why American Christian churches get involved in social justice issues like gun control by reviewing the results of the 2020 State of Theology Survey by Ligonier Ministries.

Easily the best source for Christian gun ownership

Lloyd is great! As a competition shooter following along with Lloyd, Bill, and John is perfect for me. As a hunter, Mia is brilliant and aids me in my hunting prowess! Hands down this is the best Biblical defense/2nd Amendment podcast available!
