“The Armor of Light” a documentary about gun ownership and Christianity, opened in select theaters today, according to Relevant. The film follows Rob Schenck, president of Faith in Action and chairman of the Evangelical Church Alliance, who questions if it is consistent with Christianity to be pro-gun.
Filmmaker Abigail Disney and Schenck hope that the film will prompt civil conversations on the polarizing issue.
Schenck said, “The film is filled with questions and very few answers. It’s an invitation for people to search their own hearts, their own minds, their own experiences, and come to their own conclusions. I’m rather optimistic about that. I think if people will go through a careful, prayerful process, they will come to the best conclusions on this over time.
“I hope they’ll come away asking those questions of themselves and of their Christian communities. I hope pastors will join publicly in the conversation and eventually, our community of evangelicals will help in a larger, national conversation about this crisis.”
