The Peace Officer is Ordained by God
And God created... the Peace Officer


Special Edition Bible "God's Word for Peace Officers"

The Peace Officer is Sent by God!

According to Romans 13.1-5...

  • The Peace Officer's profession is ordained by God.
  • The Peace Officer is sent by God.
  • The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
  • A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because it is honored by God.

There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.


Obey the government, for God is the one who has put it there.There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow.

  • For the peace officer does not frighten people who are doing right; but those doing evil will always fear him.
  • So if you don't want to be afraid, keep the laws and you will get along well.
  • The peace officer is sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for He will have you punished. He is sent by God for that very purpose.

Obey the laws, then, for two reasons: first, to keep from being punished, and second, just because you know you should. Rom 13.1-5, LB

And God created... Peace Officers

As God was creating peace officers, He was into His sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and said, "You sure are spending a lot of time working on this one."

God said...

"Have you read the specifications on this order? A peace officer has to able to run five miles through alleys in the dark, scale walls, enter homes the health inspector wouldn't touch, and not wrinkle his uniform.

"He has to be able to sit in an undercover car all day on a stakeout, cover a homicide scene that night, canvass the neighborhood for witnesses, and testify in court the next day.

"He has to be in top physical condition at all times, running on black coffee and half-eaten meals. And he has to have six pairs of hands."

The angel blinked in amazement and said, "Six pairs of hands? No way!"

"It's not the hands that are causing me problems," said the Lord. "It's the three pairs of eyes that a peace officer has to have."

"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.

The Lord nodded...

"Yes. He needs one pair that sees through a bulge in a pocket before he asks, 'May I see what's in there, sir?' (when he already knows, and wishes he'd taken that accounting job.)

"He needs another pair of eyes in the side of his head to watch after his partner's safety. And he needs another pair in front that can look reassuringly at a bleeding victim and say, 'You'll be all right ma'am,' when he knows it isn't so."

"Lord," said the angel, touching His sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow."

"I'll be finished with him in a minute or so," God said. "I've already endowed him with the ability to talk a 250 pound drunk into a patrol car without incident, and feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck."

The angel circled the model of the peace officer very slowly. "Can he think?" she asked.

"You bet," said the Lord.

"He can tell you the elements of a hundred crimes; recite Miranda warnings in his sleep; detain, investigate, search, and arrest a gang member on the street in less time than it takes five learned judges to debate the legality of the stop -- and he still manages to keep his sense of humor.

"This officer also has phenomenal personal control. He can deal with crime scenes painted in hell, coax a confession from a child abuser, comfort a murder victim's family, and then read in the daily paper how law enforcement isn't sensitive to the rights of criminal suspects."

Just then the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the peace officer.

"There's a leak!" she pronounced. "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model."

"That's not a leak," God said. "It's a teardrop."

"What's the teardrop for?" asked the angel.

God sadly shrugged His shoulders. "I didn't put it there," He said.
