That's an old Arab saying, although many think it is from the Bible. They translate it to "God helps those who help themselves".

The Bible says: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Scripture guarantees me knowledge, my rifle guarantees me all else.

That's certainly limiting.

But explains much.

Your Bible tell you that?

Default Justification

The Bible has always been used as justification for use of the gun.

However the gun has never been able to justify Christianity.

I know the saying . I prefer to be a bit more cautious: a skydiver can believe his parachute will open all he wants, but unless he pulls the cord with his own hand...

Anyhoo.

Not my intent to start a theological debate. *lol*
