Biblical themes from presentation


  1. Scripture states in Matthew 5:9 (ESV) “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God”.


  1. Therefore, it is Godly to be peacemakers and so it is incumbent upon law enforcement to embrace these practices.


  1. Scripture also says in Psalm 82: 3-4 “Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked”.


  1. With respect to race and racism, evil and sin are colorblind. We have to embrace that everyone has issues.


  1. That being said, Scripture warns against favoritism and makes clear in the Old Testament that the stranger must be treated fairly.


  1. Scripture also warns against favoring the rich and powerful.


  1. Law enforcement must embrace integrity, values, and loyalty.


  1. Proverbs 28:18 states “Whoever walks in integrity will be delivered, but he who is crooked in his ways will suddenly fall”.


  1. Scripture also indicates that in Proverbs 18:24 “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother”.


  1. This further emphasis why a loyal subculture of brotherhood, is favored among law enforcement officers.


  1. Lastly, Scripture states in Luke 6:31 “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them”.


  1. This really sums up the importance and the role of law enforcement as stewards of the community.
