Who'd win in a fight between Jesus and a .45?

Well, according to this news story, the .45 won this round... even if it took 4 of them to go through that Bible...

http://www.breitbart.com/article.php...show_article=1

There was one thing from the article that caught my attention...

"Our great God is not surprised by this, or anything," Nate Adams, executive director of the Illinois Baptist State Association, said in a statement. "That He allows evil and free will to have their way in tragedies like this is a mystery in many ways."

It's not a mystery at all. God gave Humans free will so we would choose to be good people. He didn't create or allow any of the world's evils to exist, we did.

There sure has been a lot of church shootings as of late... What is causing this phenomena?

Oh boy... this will not go well.

As I sit and wait for the Atheists to jump in on this thread and take a big fat shit all over religion and tell you and everyone else who has Faith how foolish, archaic, primitive and superstitious we all are, I think to myself that maybe this is a discussion best suited for TNZ.

The sinful nature of man.

It's already in TNZ.

And pretty much everything you prophesize is happening there.

Sometimes it sucks being a prophet.

Re: Who'd win in a fight between Jesus and a .45?

They thought it was part of a drama skit because they saw what appeared to be confetti? Holy Mother!!! How can you possibly sit in a church and not realise a real gun is being fired and just why the hell would any pastor arrange a drama skit which involved a guy coming into the church with a gun and blasting him?
Some people completely lack a brain!

Since it only took one Post to get a defensive overreaction, we'll just let TNZ handle this one.
