The Recent Thread on Gun Violence

As should be expected, all the serious conversations in that thread eventually ended up with the following unanswered questions: "What is the proper (biblical) role of government in relation to gun control laws?" and "What is the Godly duty of the Christian citizen towards government?"

There is a book written by one of the fathers of the reformation that deals with exactly these kinds of questions, that, ironically, very few Reformed Christians have ever read. If you have not been exposed to the scriptural exegesis presented by the author in regards to the biblical establishment of government then you are really missing out. God has some pretty awesome stuff to say about government, and sadly most of us are unaware of it.

This book, titled A Defense of Liberty Against Tyranny, can be read for free (PDF warning) online: http://www.yorku.ca/comninel/courses/3020pdf/vindiciae.pdf

I hope you enjoy being exposed to an understanding of God's will for Christians and government as much as I have.
