Why Do What We do?

"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life." ~ Proverbs 4:23

Are we prepared more for the guaranteed threat than we are the one that is least likely to occur?

Our Philosophy

After being saved (born-again by the supernatural power received through the Gospel!) Luke has found that sin is the greatest threat to anyone's ultimate safety and his goal is to see his students both spiritually and physically gain the tactical and technical proficiency they need to survive in real world situations.

Luke was led to establish a defensive training  that is first and foremost a champion of God's Word, applying His truth to the realm of firearms defense.

He has found that many defensive training organizations do not incorporate the spiritual aspect of defense and combat, which he believes is - by far - much more important! One may say, "That's what church is for." However, Luke does not believe that Truth is to be relegated to church. We don't live in church. It is definitely a training ground for spiritual warfare, but we are to primarily apply what we have learned in the world. We need to understand how real life survival situations are actually meant to be interwoven with spiritual survival.

It is good to be prepared, but it best to be properly balanced in our preparedness.

Luke would ask the seasoned defense instructors: what is the likelihood of your students being physically attacked? Would you be honest and admit that those we train may have a greater chance of being struck by lightning than to be physically attacked? Yet all of us have a 100% chance of being attacked spiritually today in the temptation to sin.

This doesn't mean you shouldn't prepare for a physical attack if you have the ability to.

 

However, due to the high likelihood that you will be spiritually attacked multiple times during the average day, Luke believes that whatever training we engage in should include interdisciplinary components which include protecting the heart:

"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life." ~ Proverbs 4:23​

 Life is short and death is sure: sin is our greatest curse but the blood of the crucified One - Christ - is the glorious cure!
