    Rich, your short biography at the top of the page mentions you are an active apologist (defender of the faith). You must consider that mainstream liberal Americans despise two classes of people. One, are gun owners and second are the religious people trying to instill morality in an immoral society. The Constitution of the United States only has twenty seven amendments. If the government should repeal our second amendment (right to bear arms), then the ball is rolling to repeal our first amendment (freedom of religion), to silence every God believing man, woman and child.
    The vast number of gun owners are law abiding responsible citizens, just as the vast number of car owners are law abiding. However, there were 952 drunk driving deaths in 2012 in my home state of Illinois. And I have not heard on word about outlawing cars, or how much alcohol a person can own or drink. Drunk driving is no accident when the person keeps lifting another beer to his mouth. Point is the person getting behind the wheel or trigger makes his own decisions.
    We live in a fallen world where there well always be pain and suffering. God called us not to spend too much time trying to fix society, but to carry out the great commission of His saving grace.

    You were instrumental to my pursuit of Christ.

    LARRY EVANS: All of Christ’s apostles died for their beliefs. Perhaps He would expect the same of us.

    Dear Rich,

    I was invited to give a talk on Singularity. After doing some research, I found most authors left out God. As a Christian, I am very impressed by you video talk and the article “The Singularity Movement: Why the Singularity Won’t Be Coming Any Time Soon by Rich Deem” . I would very much appreciate if you can send me you editable power point on your talk on The Singularity Movement. It will really help me to share God’s doing in a smart way.

    Thank you for your kindness.

    In Christ,
    Hui Ming

    I would like more info on your views on the right to bear arms & more info on Christians going through the Great Tribulation. I reside in Dyer Co. Tn. & have my Tn. Gun carry permit & am a Christian meaning I know I truly have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord & Savior & am Southern Baptist by my faith. We are currently studying the book of Revelation in Sunday School, where I’m the men’s S.S. teacher. Thank you for your time & may God bless. Sincerely, Bobby Joe Hooper II.
