There has been much disturbing news about the recent thuggish abuse by police in Chandler, Arizona, against soulwinners from the Faithful Word Baptist Church. I think it is a shame! I mean, how does a mother in a peaceful church group end up with her face on the concrete, with two bullies with a badge assaulting her? They were peacefully sharing the Gospel! Something is VERY WRONG with this picture! I'm sure the heathen that called the police enjoyed the spectacle. Christians must not be intimidated by the police! The best way to handle this situation is to go knock on a hundred times more doors with the Gospel. I would make Chandler a frequent place of soulwinning! The best revenge against the Devil is a full church bus!!!
One thing is abundantly clear—hated and hostility against Christians is growing across the country. People know that they can use the police as a weapon to harass Christians. Sadly, the police often foolishly play into that shameful role, lowering themselves as pawns of an angry public, instead of fulfilling their sworn duty to uphold the law and PROTECT citizen's rights. Faithful Word Baptist Church has a legal RIGHT to knock on doors to share the Gospel. That female cop is woefully ignorant of her duty as a police officer. That whole situation was improperly handled. There is no way that slamming a church lady to the ground, slapping handcuffs on her and hauling her away by force for merely sharing the Gospel, can be justified. I mean, really, that's crazy!
The Holy Bible teaches that our weapons of warfare are not carnal, but spiritual. 2nd Corinthians 10:4, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.” The believer's SEVEN spiritual weapons are listed in Ephesians 6:12-17; namely, prayer, faith, the Gospel, salvation, the Word of God, truth and righteousness. It seems that police nowadays only have the power to use brut force against citizens! Is that the best approach? Think about it. This dear Christian mother was obeying the Lord's command in Mark 16:15, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Lo and behold, the next thing you know this Christian mother is seized by police and forced to the ground, handcuffed and thrown in jail, for preaching the Gospel! Oh, great will be her rewards in Heaven! Those cops made her a martyr! Matthew 5:11-12, “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” Those worldly cops merely made her richer in eternity! Do you think that God, Who sees every sparrow that falls from the sky, misses when a soulwinner is assaulted by police? Not a chance! Keep on soulwinning!!!
We must recognize the carnality of such a horrible legal system, which honors the rights of abortionists, homosexuals and Federal Reserve Banking thieves; but brings down the arm of the law on peaceful soulwinning Christians. Certainly, sometimes brut force is justified, but against a Christian lady with a Bible in her hand? Really? Where is justice? The best way to fix the Devil real good is to go knock on even more doors! When the Devil kicks me in the butt, I kick him in the crotch! That is Biblical by the way. Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy [Satan's] seed and her seed [Jesus Christ]; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” Satan has been making trouble for Christians since the Garden of Eden, but the Lord Jesus Christ dealt a deadly blow to the kingdom of Satan on Calvary's cross! Death was the last enemy to be defeated. Because of the sacrifice of our precious Savior, anyone can escape the second death and live eternally, simply by receiving the Gospel (i.e., the Good News of Jesus crucified, buried and bodily risen) by faith. Thank God for the gift of His dear only begotten Son!!!
