Former U.S. general: When Jesus comes back, he'll be carrying an AR-15

Jerry BoykinDuring a speech at the Pro-Family Legislators Conference in Dallas, former Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin predicted that when Jesus returns to Earth, he’ll be packing heat.  Specifically, an AR-15 assault rifle.

"The Lord is a warrior and in Revelation 19 it says when he comes back, he's coming back as what? A warrior. A mighty warrior leading a mighty army, riding a white horse with a blood-stained white robe,” Boykin said during his speech. “And I believe now that the sword he'll be carrying when he comes back is an AR-15."

The portion of the Bible that the 64-year-old was referencing is when Jesus says, “I came not to bring peace but to bring a sword.”

Apparently Boykin, who currently serves as the Family Research Council's executive vice president, feels that swords and assault weapons are synonymous.
