The Lord said "Thou shall Not Kill".

But I ask you if you were put into a situation of protecting your family or standing idly by and let an intruder in your home harm your family? What would you do? Do you actually think that intruder will listen to reason? Could you just talk to him/them like you do your children and he/they will listen to you and leave? What do you think they came there for in the first place, the lecture they didn't get at home? No they want to steal from you and if you are in their way they WILL harm you and everyone in their way. Plus if they are NOT so nice they may even do NOT so nice things to the women. Will the man of the house stand idly by and watch this? I hope not.

Even being a Christian doesn't mean we must stand by and let someone do harm to use. Yes they have that choice to do the wrong thing but I believe we also have that choice to protect ourselves.
Forgive me but didn't they KILL people that did wrong in the Bible?
So wouldn't we be doing RIGHT if we killed these intruders since they are doing WRONG?
I know from a mother's point of view, and from bad choices. I had to put my children's welfare first a few times and I did FIGHT to do just that. I had just this scenario happen to me and had I had a gun in my home that person would've been dead. But I did lay him out on my kitchen floor until the police came.

We have thought hard on having a gun in the house. We had one a number of years ago but sold it because  we no longer go hunting. So hitting the target if someone decided to break into our home would be no problem for either of us.
Wondering how it would effect us if we were to kill someone- that is another story. No one would know the effects of that until they actually encountered it. But I can tell you if someone were to enter my home without being invited - I would fight to my last breath to defend the loved ones in my home.

I recently came across this website that sold these signs to put in your yards. I live in an area that I wouldn't need to place these in my yard. But I have to say if I lived in the city or country I would definitely have one of these.
I have to say it is sad that it is getting to a point where we have to "scare" intruders like this. But in most homes this would be true.
I have to say that with the video of Brinks- they don't give you a real since of security. Because all it would take is for the intruder to have a gun and he answer the phone and tell the person on the other end that the window broke because kids were playing outside with a ball and it broke the window. So everything was fine. So then no police would be called and then you would be at his mercy.

So how much do those signs of theirs really deter intruders? A good thief knows what he wants and what he's willing to give up to get it. Or if they are on drugs they don't care one bit and they go after what they want at any cost.
Do you think you can talk that kind of intruder down?????
