Is it biblical and in accordance with Christian faith to be ready to employ lethal force to protect your life from an imminent and wrongful life-threatening attack? According to the Bible, our first priority is to love and seek peace. It also says there is a right time and a right place for appropriate godly confrontation and conflict. The Bible shows that, at certain times, proper violence is considered a necessity and God decrees it must be used to thwart evil. Read this booklet to see how the Bible offers more than 100 examples and passages that speak to the acceptability of self-defense in accordance with self-discipline and wise discernment.
