Would Christ carry a Concealed Weapon?

hmm... interesting article I found...

It's a tricky question, because that was not His mission. He was not here to save His life, but to give it. Now, if the question was, "Would Christ allow us to carry a concealed weapon?" I think the answer is Yes. He was a Shepherd. His whole life was devoted to saving the sheep.....He willingly gave His life to save the sheep. Scripture says we have to be as cunning as serpents but as gentle as lambs. A lamb would not knowingly seek to harm any creature. A serpent will strike when threatened. Find the balance. Jesus would expect us to be faithful sheepdogs over the lambs in our care and under our watch.

For those who don't remember it was a devout Christian with a CCW who stopped that shooter in CO a couple of months ago.

btw, Jesus' apostles carried swords.
Luke 22:36

"...and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."
