    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    A right smart amount of Churches here in NC do the same thing..........and they tell you if you come to church services your weapons are welcome....Praise the Lord.

    Am I the only one who noticed the sign is for Faith Baptist Church and the article calls it a Church of Christ?

    Maybe The Daily can't tell the difference?!

    Just further evidence that churches are just social clubs.

    Until I figured that out I felt guilty that I stopped going.

    I know a couple of pastors who are CPL instructors...
    I don't see anything wrong with it at all.

    Orrrrr... you will see evidence as you do in this thread. I'm pretty sure this activity isn't a theocratic one laid out in scripture. Therefore, it's a club. Kinda like church softball teams or bowling leagues. I'm not trying to be crappy about it. It's just the way it is.

    The article is limited to discussing the ccw classes, it does not discuss what other activities the church is or isn't involved in. You are reading something into the article that is not there based on your own personal opinion.

    I wouldn't have a problem with you saying this is something else that churches should not do, but there is no evidence in the article that this church and others are not involved in redeeming activities.

    We offer classes at my Church as well. We had two last year and one this year graduating about 50. Not all in the class were members of the Church so it did work as an outreach, though I don't know how successful that was. Our intent was to encourage licensed and armed members to carry in Church and to Church activities.

    Intriguing outreach; I've not heard of anything similar.
