Should Pastors Use Armed Policemen As Security?

Pastors and other ministers of God have abandoned the heavenly guards and now use armed mobile police for their security. Is it scriptural for them to do so? I even learnt some of them possess go about with pistol for their security. Please tell me your view about this topic

Thanks

The world is never the same no like back in the days of Moses,Elijah,David and so many man of God,when God speaks to people directly,sends them on a mission,No one can stop Gods mission,you can kill a man of God(St. stephen) but u can't kill the word of God.IF you are on Gods mission why should you be scared of death,you should be ready to die in what you believe in,It is loss of faith,the real people of God are in the congregation!not the so call man of God.

Why would pastors need armed policemen or pistol as security? Pastors should have more faith in God. God protects his children, doesn't He? Perhaps some pastors don't even believe the stuff they preach so they need backup just in case.

If these lying pastors really believe in God why don't they let the angels and holy ghost protect them?

Wht do they need security guards? The god these pastors believe in is the dollar bill which as written on the back (in god we trust).

Money (Owo = it is fallen) is their god that's why they need armed police as security.

These pastor's should practice what they preach and ask the angels of the bible to protect them.

If na you nko, wetin you go do in a country where security is an expensive commodity these days?

Anyways, such are the indices of what image we have built for ourselves in the broader context. The reason why anyone is concerned about such issues is because 'pastors' also adopt the security measures as others do - politicians, chieftians, VIPs, etc. Nobody asks questions or bats eyelids on the other cases - and they do so for whatever reasons they feel demands attention on their very lives.

On the whole, I think the time has come for people to begin asking right questions and seeking the right answers. Perhaps. . . just perhaps, one of the reasons why some pastors would be doing that is because they feel very insecure in themselves and may not be reflecting faith enough to trust in God's protection in a very dangerous environment.

Just my reflections.
