Who Would Jesus Shoot?

Hey, if you guys want a new assault rifle, Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition!

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/06/2...ifle-giveaway/

In an effort to “get more people to follow Jesus,” a Joplin, Missouri, church held a raffle giving away two Black Rain AR15 assault rifles.

On Father’s Day June 15, Ignite Church gave away two of the weapons as part of a marketing strategy to bring more young men into the fold, according to the Joplin Globe.

“If we get people in the door, we get to preach the gospel,” said Heath Mooneyham, Ignite’s lead pastor. “If we can get more people to follow Jesus, I’ll give away 1,000 guns. I don’t care.”

The give-away was part of an outreach by Ignite Church to make inroads with the male age 18 to 35 demographic.

“That’s the biggest black hole in our society,” Mooneyham explained.

The church has already made adjustments in an attempt to draw a younger male crowd with Sunday services start later (10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.), loud rock music, and a tattooed mohawked pastor.

“We’re not trying to put on a show for anybody,” Mooneyham said. “We’re just dudes.

Previously the church has sponsored shooting and hunting outings.

On Father’s Day, men were given the an opportunity to put their names in a hat to win one of two AR-15 rifles. Each father was eligible to submit a ticket for himself and a ticket for each of his children he brought to church with him. An additional ticket was given if a man brought his own dad.

Dan McCain, who owns a local guitar shop and plays lead guitar for the church’s band, was one of the two AR-15 winners.

“I was very happy to win the rifle. I’ve never won anything in my life, so it was exciting,” he said. “I enjoy hunting and target shooting. I haven’t had the opportunity to hunt in a while, but hope to change that this season.”

McCain added, “Firearm ownership does not equate to violence.”

Not everyone in the Joplin Christian community agrees with Ignite’s aggressive marketing methods.

“I think giving away weapons, with all the violence in this country, gives way to new violence,” said Steve Urie, pastor at the Joplin Diversity Fellowship. “I don’t think it’s just nontraditional. I think it’s careless and reckless.”

Yeah, I'd say that a little outside of the box....
I'm torn between two pictures, so I'll post them both.

The image from the movie Jesus Christ SuperStar where the temple has guns:



or a good ol photoshop of Jesus with a gun...

It would take a lot more than an AR-15 for me to go to church.

If the Church had a raffle for some Varget or Benchmark powder I might send my wife to enter the drawing.

Jesus wouldn't shoot anyone.

He'd smite them with his god powers just like he did according to the bible.

I'll bet the favorite hymn in that church is "Onward Christian Soldiers...."
