In His Sights 0

The fuss over Trijicon’s encoding references to New Testament Bible verses in the serial numbers of its telescopic rifle sights seemed a little over the top to me.

  • No one looks at serial numbers.
  • You had to know already to what they were to recognize the references. Proselytizing didn’t seem to be an issue here.

But I wonder . . .

These are the two verses in question:

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

(referred to as JN8:12)

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a]made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

referred to as 2COR4:6

One wonders whether the authors of these words would consider them appropriate for gunsights.

And about the thinking of those who concluded that they were a fitting accompaniment to instruments of killing.
