Active Shooter—a term recently coined that sends chills up the spines of principles, teachers, parents…and now pastors and parishioners. The FBI defines an active shooter as “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area, typically through the use of firearms.” What is the biblical approach to this threat? Christians struggle with how to respond. Do we trust God and pray for his protection? Do we “turn the other cheek” and do nothing when someone threatens to kill us? Do we take up arms to defend ourselves and others? Christians who choose the responsibility of employing lethal force must be informed by both a spiritual and tactical foundation. Not only is there a proper biblical response, there is also a proper tactical response. What are these proper responses? Find out in Pistol in the Pulpit. Author Tim Rupp draws from his experience as a career police officer, firearms instructor, and pastor to address these daunting questions.
