Open Letter to the Police in America

As Christians, we desire our police departments throughout America to know that they have no greater base of love, support, and honor as they perform their duty as peace officers. God instructs His people to pray for those in civil authority and to obey all lawful commands. The church recognizes the state as a delegated authority under God. If man’s law conflicts with God’s law, however, the church is duty bound to obey the supreme authority, God, rather than man (Acts 4:18-20, 5:29; Exodus 1:15-21; Daniel 6:1-27; 2 Corinthians 11:32, 33).

It is important to know that we are praying for our police and whenever we can, our desire is to encourage the men and women in law enforcement in the faithful discharge of their duties. Today, we are praying God’s very best for them and every member of their families. We know the personal sacrifices, difficulties, and the toll their chosen profession takes on their homes. Their pledge to protect and serve is deeply appreciated. Especially, at this time, when our police are being systematically targeted and ambushed.

Romans 13:4 states those who serve in civil authority are: “God’s minister to you for good.” It continues with this warning: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to [execute] wrath on him who practices evil.”

Biblically, God established a two-fold purpose for civil government. First, it is to restrain evil and protect the good citizens of the land. The catch, however, it is God’s holy, righteous, and just character contained in His Holy commandments that defines good and evil. If the state rejects this foundational premise for law, there is the danger of good becoming evil and evil, good (Isaiah 5:20). If this happens, evil becomes codified into law, which leads to anarchy amongst citizens and tyranny in government. Both are transpiring under our watch as our police are being assassinated.

Second, God ordained civil government to protect life and stop the shedding of innocent blood. Genesis 9:6 declares, “Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man” (Genesis 9:6). Roe vs. Wade violated that sacred trust. Our government has defended the indefensible ever since and our entire nation now staggers under the weight of bloodguilt, violence, chaos, tyranny, and perversion.

The swearing of the oath of every police officer ends with these words, “So help me God.” Thus, the oath of office taken by police officers does not just merely acknowledge God, but also implores His help to fulfill this ministry of good for our nation. Ultimately, police officers are called to be faithful to God from whom their lawful authority is established. Again, civil government is a delegated authority under God. Tragically, in recent decades, this oath has been greatly challenged by those who practice evil, (abortion, sodomy, gay marriage, transgendered bathrooms etc.). These subversive entities expect law enforcement to be “neutral” despite the fact that their activities are not only sinful, but criminal according to God. The federal government through immoral, unjust, and unconstitutional decrees has decriminalized their crimes.

One of the most significant and historical documents addressing the administration of justice is called “The Law Enforcement Code of Ethics.” It consists of four simple paragraphs that issue certain moral charges police officers must establish in the performance of their duty and in their personal lives. It concludes with these words: “I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen profession…law enforcement.”

Unfortunately, throughout history many administrations of justice failed to live up to their oaths of service to God and those they claim to serve. Nazi Germany serves as a recent reminder of this travesty. Everything Hitler did in Germany was “legal.” His “Final Solution” was the established “law of the land.” Those who served in civil government refused to recognize or rightly discern that their delegated authority did not proceed from Hitler, it came from God. Thus, in the name of law, they perpetrated lawlessness, mayhem, and murder. When called to give an account, they justified themselves by stating “I was only following the law…I was simply obeying orders…I was just doing my job.” Later, they were convicted as criminals and suffered punishment for their complicity with evil.

History is not our only judge when it comes to these crucial matters. The God who superintends history will judge as well. He, however, will judge righteously. Failing to administer justice justly, disregarding what history teaches, and God’s Word demands must not only end in an unlawful performance of duty but a grievous violation of your God-ordained delegated authority. Police Officers must resist and overcome this temptation!

The thin blue line that separates the criminal element from society is fading fast. Anarchy runs rampant while government tyranny grows. Our nation stands in awkward amazement as violence, carnage, terrorism, and massacres are becoming a common everyday experience in our nation. To our horror, this violence has now targeted our law enforcement agencies. Why is this happening? There is only one answer from God’s Word, Blood guilt!

America has made a covenant of death with those who seek to murder innocent babies in the womb for blood money. Roe vs. Wade violated the sacred trust of law enforcement, which is to protect life and stop the shedding of innocent blood. Our nation has been defending the indefensible ever since.

Law enforcement officers, whom God has appointed to protect the most innocent amongst us are being used to protect those who would harm them. We call upon law enforcement to come out of the shadows of neutrality and join the Church of Jesus Christ to break this covenant with death. We charge them to lend their voice and influence to help end the violence that is not only savaging our nation, but our brave police officers as well.

We beseech police departments throughout America to rise up and demand the governor of their respective states call a special session of the legislative branch of state government. Police officers need to insist their states immediately outlaw abortion, grant the police the authority to shut down any death camp in their jurisdiction, and arrest those who participate in the barbaric act of abortion. Peace will never return to America as long as our country protects violence in the womb. We can shout black lives matter, blue lives matter, or all lives matter till the cows come home, but until preborn lives matter, no lives matter, including the police.
