I saw this today and wasn't sure how to take it...

"If Jesus had an AK, he'd be walking the earth today."

Maybe maybe not.
Depends on if the other guys have bigger and better guns.

No I find it silly but not offensive.

That statement is WAY late to the party of trying to offend people. Family Guy went there and did that a long, LONG time ago! :th_thicon_lol:



As for me, hell no it ain't offensive. I've heard, seen, and laughed at things a million times more offensive than that before -- some people may be of the opinion that I'm going to hell, and maybe I am, but w/e. I feel like God's gonna have more important things to do related to being all-knowing and all-seeing than worrying about some joke like that.

I can't seem to wrap my head around this. If Jesus has an AK 47 that probably means he's now a communist but the average communist are heathens and aren't very religious or for that mater believe Jesus is the son of God. I think I'm going to take my meds now and lay down.  :icon_wink:

I can't seem to wrap my head around this. ...

Which is why I asked, and thanks for the replies. If you replace AK with “Assault Weapon” (or AR, Saturday Night Special” or other perjorative gun descriptor) the feeling of the statement seems to change with each.

Politically it steps on a lot of toes. Religiously it also steps on different toes.
And, for someone who lived “turn the other cheek, it doesn’t make sense.

No … it would not offend me, but why would someone who can wipe out a city or country (for that matter) with one look need a weapon

It does show he's smart enough to pick a rifle that can out last the others

After reading the replies, I asked our resident Bible scholar. 

She thought about it and said:
"IF he had one, he would not object to it, many people carried weapons in that era. But it's likely he would lay it down as a nonviolent sign.  Further since he knew his future destiny, it's not likely he'd try to use it to change destiny it in a violent manner.

Since it really makes absolutely NO SENSE to me in ANY  context,, I am going to assume, it fell out of some morons mouth,, so therefore,, I give it no credence whatsoever,, and totally write it off to stupidity.

I just DONT  take peoples stupidity or idiocy personal.  :P

I'm with TXAZ's resident Bible scholar.
If he had it he wouldn't have used it. He had ALL the power of the universe at his disposal and didn't use it. He said " Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? "
I think He would laugh if someone offered him an AK for protection. However, He would not be apposed to you having one. He told Peter, after Peter cut off the Roman soldier's ear, to put his sword back in it's sheath. He didn't tell him to throw it away or turn it in to the gobmnt.

Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword. -- I have a different take on this scripture than most.

1) Some people say that this means that you shouldn't own weapons to defend yourself. - I disagree with this. Jesus wouldn't have told Peter to put his sword back into it's sheath if He intended for him to never use it. He probably would have told him to just throw it away if that's what He meant.

2) Some people say that this means that he who lives by violence dies by violence. _ O.K., that makes sense. But I'm not sure that Peter's intentions were violence.

 Anyway, Here's my take on it.
3) The word of God is often referred to as the sword of the spirit. Well, if the word of God is a sword then could Jesus' statement have been referring to himself? He who lives by the word of God dies by the word of God. Was he talking about his own life? That is what Jesus did. He lived by God's word and fulfilled scriptures (the word of God) in his death.

And for the record, I don't get offended.

one has to wonder at the reasoning behind the context of the statement, and the state of mind of the person who made it.

no, i don't find it offensive, maybe a bit lame, sarcastic, or even ill-informed as to what Jesus Christ stood for and his purpose in life here on Earth.

i also have to agree with the bible scholar on this as well.

No Sir! I have it on good authority, that Jesus Christ carried a 1911 when he did carry a pistol!  :th_thicon_funny:

Well, the statement assumes Jesus is dead, which he ain't.

It is a historical fact that Jesus existed and was crucified. This is backed by historical writings outside the bible.
However, believing whether or not he is the son of God and a deity is a decision made by each individual.

Jesus Christ died on the cross. He was resurrected to live eternally for our salvation.
