Is it “In God We Trust” or is it now “In Guns We Trust”

23 Aug


Religious people who claim that they believe in The Lord-Creator of the Heavens and Earth; but, says that they NEED guns in order to protect themselves from bad people; shows a lack of faith and trust in The Creator.  

The Master-Creator is the best Protector.

In the Divinely Revealed Scriptures (Torah, Gospel, Qur’an), HE tells us that HE Alone has control over our lives and death.

We do not live in a war zone in the United States of America.

There is no war taking place in our country; where large numbers of our citizens are killed everyday.

When Dylan Roof murdered those worshippers in the church in South Carolina; some members of the African American clergy, were saying that guns should be allowed in churches.

They were saying in their hearts, but not with their mouths;”that Jesus cannot protect them while they are in their churches.”

What they are saying in essence is that The Creator cannot protect us while we are in our houses of worship.


Did Jesus of Nazareth tells his followers to arm themselves with weapons for protection against the Romans or others? 

Have Christians forgotten the Lord’s Prayer from the Bible, in Psalms 23? 

“The Lord-Creator is my shepherd; I shall not want. 

HE maketh me to lie down in green pastures:  

HE leadeth me beside the still waters. 

HE restoreth my soul:  

HE leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for HIS Name’s sake. 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:  

For Thou art with me; THY Rod and THY Staff, they comfort me. 

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:  

Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:  

And I will dwell in the House of the Lord-Creator for ever.” 

(End of Psalms verses) 

As I said before; we don’t live in a war zone.  

The citizens of the United States of America, are not at war with each other. 

Despite what some media outlets like FOX News; have been saying.

They want their viewers (who are primarily Caucasians); to believe that people of African descent hate them and want to kill them.

They highlight every racial incident in the country.  

They have been spreading paranoia and fear, that has made many weak minded Americans very fearful.

When you walk-by these people in public, who have been programmed with a steady diet of fear from the media; you can see the look of fear in their eyes.

I have lived in the USA for almost 50 years; and I had never encountered so many fearful looking Caucasian people, as I see, almost on a daily basis.

Even during the era of the black Panthers and black militants groups of the late 1960s, and early 1970; when there was a lot of talk about racial war; Caucasians were not so fearful as they are now.

Buying weapons out of fear.

Many of these fearful people have been buying an arsenal of weapons in preparation for a coming racial war in America.

A racial war that will NEVER happen! 

Many of these fanatical gun collectors, usually end up using their guns to kill their wives, husbands, children, friends, neighbours, co-workers, innocents strangers at the mall, students at colleges or universities, elementary school children or to kill themselves.

Their weapons are rarely used against the people whom they claim they need protection from.


Gun mentality

Many people who have guns; have a strong desire to use them.

They are just itching for the opportunity to use their guns.

They put themselves in situations, where if they didn’t have their guns with them; they would fear to tread. 

They will initiate confrontations with strangers; so that they will then be able to shoot someone.

Then they will claim that they feared for their lives.

They were the ones carrying the guns; but they were afraid of someone else, who didn’t have a gun.

George Zimmerman would not have followed Trayvon Martin that night, if he didn’t have his gun with him.

He was bold and brave against a harmless teenager; because he had a gun on him.

When the teenager asked him, why he was following him and then bested him in a physical scuffle; the coward shot him.

Cowards with guns

Most of these gun owners are really cowards without their guns.

They would never confront anyone; unless they have a gun on them. 

In their minds, the image that they have of themselves; is alway one with a gun in their hands. 

In their homes they will most likely have photos or videos of themselves with their guns.

They imagine themselves as their favourite action actors, in movie scenes, with  guns in their hands.

They picture themselves shooting people.

Having guns makes them feel invincible. 

They no longer behave like normal Human Beings.

These gun fanatics have developed a gun mentality. 

They believe every argument can be solved with a gun. 

No matter what the problem is, to them the solution is always to use their guns.

Who is our true protector in this life?

True believers in the All-Mighty knows that protection only comes from our Lord-Creator.

Some people may have an arsenal of weapons; but, when it is their time to die nothing will save them from death.

Some people believe they should teach their children how to use guns.

There have been many, many incidents of children shooting their siblings or friends or using guns to kill their parents.

Do you remember the news story about the man who taught others how to handle and shoot guns at a gun range?

He was accidentally killed by a little girl with an Uzi he was showing her how to use.

And many other incidents that show the fallacy of teaching children how to use guns. 

The Lord-Creator of the Heavens and Earth controls both our lives and death. 

There is a saying I remember from the past that goes:

“He who fears to lose his life, will lose his life.”  

Which means, if you keep worrying about something bad happening to you, then it will happen to you. 

People of Faith should stop worrying about their death. 

We have no control over the time or place that it will happen. 

And, nothing will happen to anyone in their lives, unless The Master-Creator of the Heavens and Earth allows it to happen. 

Death is not a punishment.

 It is part of the process of our existence.

So keep calm, and continue to do the best that you can in this life.

Don’t worry about things, that you have absolutely no control over. 


In our world today, we find many people who claim to be religious; with an overwhelming fear of death. 

I don’t know why this is so. 

Since the majority of the followers of the 3 monotheistic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Al-Islam, claim that they believe in a Life after Death.  

They all believe that they will meet The Master-Creator in the Next Life.

Christians especially believe that they will be welcomed into the bosom of Jesus Christ, in the After-Life. 

There they will then, receive their rewards for their belief and for the good and righteous deeds that they did while living on Earth. 

So why, do they have this overwhelming fear of death?  

Could it be that the majority of religious people on Earth; don’t really believe in what their religion teaches? 

Or could it be, that quite possibly; many Jews, Christians and Muslims are really hypocritical to the teachings of their own faith group? 

And they fear that the evil and immoral things that they have been doing, in this life will land them in Hell and not in Heaven. 


Our existence from the moment the sperm entered the egg, within the wombs of our mothers, have been nothing but life and death.  

We die to one phase of our existence to come alive to another phase.

We die as sperm to come alive as a fetus growing in the bodies of our mothers.

We then die as a fetus to come alive as babies; when we leave the bodies of our mothers.

When we die in this physical world we come to life in another world.

This Next-Life, quite possibly is a Spiritual World.

Our Creator has Revealed in Scriptures, that this life in the Hereafter is the final phase of our existence. 

This is what The Master-Creator has Revealed in the Qur’an about our stages of life and death: 

With The Name of The One True *G-D, The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer 

O mankind! if you have a doubt about Resurrection (after your death):  

Then (Consider this), **WE have created you out of dirt, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that WE may manifest (G-D’s power) to you: 

And WE cause whom WE will to rest in the wombs (of their mothers) until  an appointed time; then do WE bring you out as babies, then (nurtured you) that you may reach your age of full strength:

And some of you are called to an early death, and some are sent back to the feeblest old age, so that they know nothing (senile) after having known (so much):

And (further), you see the Earth barren and lifeless, but when WE pour down rain (water) on it, it is stirred (to life), it swells, and it puts forth every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs). 

This is so, because The One G-D is The Reality: it is HE WHO gives life to the dead, and it is HE WHO has power over all things. 

(End of verses from The Holy ***Qur’an) 



We must put our complete faith and trust in the All-Mighty Creator.  

Nothing happens to us good or bad in this life unless HE allows it.  

We can have an arsenal of weapons; and still get killed.  

When it is our time to die then we will die. 

None can protect like HIM.

The more we put our faith and trust in HIM for everything, the more HE will help us.


A weak faith in your Creator, will lead to a hypocritical religious behaviour in your life.  

Only people who don’t believe in The Creator, and in Life after Death, should fear death. 

They believe this life is more important than anything else. 

They wish that they could live for hundreds of years. 

They will do everything they can, to prolong their life in this world. 

They see death as emptiness. They believe death is the end of our existence. 

Those who truly believe in The All-Mighty, knows that nothing will happen to us unless HE allows it to happen. 

So to get guns in preparation for what MAY happens shows a lack of trust in our Creator. 

*G-D instead of god which spelt backwards is dog. This is not a respectful spelling of a term to be used in reference to the Lord-Creator of the Heavens and Earth. 

**WE, US, OUR are references in the Holy Qur’an to all of the forces of power (Angels) under the control of The Creator. They manage all creation. They are totally obedient to The All-Mighty G-D, and obeys HIS Commands without question.

*** The Holy Qur’an was Revealed to Muhammed Ibn Abdullah of Arabia in the 7th century. This Revelation from G-D came to him through the Angel Gabriel over a period of 23 years.

Muhammed could neither read nor write. He is referred to in a few places in the Qur’an as being “unlettered.”
