    The Bradbury Science Museum usually has fun in store and some youth ambassadors to assist in their educational outreach.

  • ”I know about Bible verses that teach forgiveness, loving enemies, trusting God and not killing another human, etc. But is there a biblical justification for self-defense when your home and family are threatened?”—Robert

    There are several ways to approach this question:
    The “natural theologian” would claim that in nature, the instinct of all animals is to protect the nest and the young.
    One deduces from this fact that self-defense is hard-wired into our existence.  This “instinct” is consistent with a biblical faith that places a high value on home and family.
