Faith's Shield vs Blockers

I have creature A attacking.  The declare a block with creature B.  I attempt to play Faith's Shield on A to gain protection from B after the block has been declared.  However, he tells me that I should have used it before he declared the block.  Since I did it after, the block still happens even though A now has protection from B.

Is this true?

Also along the same lines, can you use Gut Shot on a blocker?
if you used it before he blocked, he wouldn't have been able to block.

you used it after he blocked so the creature is blocked, however, the damage to your attacker will be prevented

you can Gut Shot a blocker, it is a creature afterall

if you kill a potential blocker before it blocks, then your attacker can't be blocked by that creature
if you kill a blocking creature after it has blocked, your attacking creature is still blocked

For the gut shot question - sure. However, removing a blocking creature won't make the creature it blocked become unblocked.
All Generalizations are Bad
Note that if the attacking creature has Trample, removing all creatures blocking it will allow it to deal it's full damage to the Planeswalker or Player it was attacking.

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.
