Oklahoma Church Cancels Gun Giveaway At Youth Conference

July 12, 2008

I happened to see this headline on CNN.com and it peaked my curiosity enough to see if it was really what it seemed to be.  It was!  You can read the full story by clicking HERE.  I was shocked to hear about a church that would market a semiautomatic assault rifle as a giveaway to encourage a higher turnout at a youth conference.  Isn’t the appeal of a youth conference supposed to be about Jesus Christ?  Help me understand what kind of appeal getting an assault rifle has for our youth that would make them attend a church youth conference.

Maybe it’s because I live in Chicago where we have way too many teens shooting each other; or maybe I just think you should go to church to worship and praise God, not get a gun.  What do you think?  Please leave your comments.

I found it interesting…I hope you do too.
