Setting Brushfires 06-10-2019: What Happened When The British Came To Take Our Founders’ Arms?
The History of the War for Independence is rich with knowledge if only America will pay attention to what occurred and how our founding fathers responded. In this episode of Setting Brushfires, I go through a little history that led up to the shot heard round the world and the biblical principles involved in the God-given right to act on our God-given duty to keep and bear arms.
Paul Revere didn’t ride crying “The British are coming!” to announce new taxes, but rather that they were coming to take our forefathers’ weapons and ammunition. The Bible also upheld the cries of our forefathers to keep and bear arms for the preservation of life and fighting off tyranny.
