Stand Your Ground: The Biblical Foundation For Self-Defense

What does the Bible say about the right to self-defense? While the 2nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right of individuals to keep and bear arms, Christians are guided by a higher law – the law of God. The Bible is certainly not silent on this subject. “Stand Your Ground” lays out the foundation for self-defense found in the Old Testament, the New Testament and the example of Jesus in a concise, yet thorough manner. At the same time, common objections to Christian self-defense are considered and overcome.
