Yes, Ms. Kim Davis, who is the Kentucky county clerk refusing to issue gay marriage licenses and was therefore arrested by the US government, is a hero of America’s Christianity, because she rather obey God rather than men. Read about her case:
There may not be 50 righteous people in America who are willing to sacrifice everything for Christ, but there is at least 1, and that is reassuring.
Consider this: The police officer who arrested her is probably a “Christian”, but the police officer did not love Jesus Christ enough; he did not refuse to participate in the persecution of a Christian who was following the Bible.
Everyone has a choice. They can choose Jesus or the world (or world’s powers). That choice existed with Kim Davis just as much as the police officer who arrested her. He is like the soldiers who followed orders to arrest Jesus Christ or St. Paul or St. Peter. Throughout history, such police officers followed orders to arrest Christians and participated in the persecution of Christians.
Are they not guilty?
Of course, they are!
Consider this. Nazi officers after World War 2 said that they were not guilty because they were following orders. Visit the website below:
Are police officers or soldiers following orders guilty of what they do when following orders results in the persecution of Christians?
Yes, the so-called Christian police officer who arrested Kim Davis will burn in Hell, forever, unless he repents and refuses to arrest anti-homosexuality Christians whom he is ordered to arrest in the future. Everyone has a choice to do the right thing or do the wrong thing.
It is unfortunate that the United States Supreme Court has brought this unfortunate situation upon American police officers in all 50 states. Now, the eternal life of America’s police officers is on line. Now, they can follow orders and participate in American government’s persecution of Christians, and they would be, therefore, doing the work of Satan, just by doing their job and following orders.
This is what happens, when the Law of the Land directly opposes the Law of God and the Bible.
During the French Revolution and the Russian Revolution, soldiers and police officers refused to follow orders. Without these police officers and soldiers, the French Revolution and the Russian Revolution would not have succeeded.
Everyone has a choice. If you are a police officer, you can choose to participate in the persecution of Christians or not. If you disobey orders as a police officer or a soldier, you may be arrested or shot. But many Christians in history have gladly given their life for Christ to obey the Word of God.
That’s what Kim Davis did. She gave her freedom up for Christ. That’s what a true disciples of Christ do.
A true disciple (1) denies self (such things as freedom) for Christ, (2) take up the cross (which means, even go to death for Christ), and (3) follows Jesus Christ. And this is what Kim Davis did. But this is precisely what the police officer who arrested Kim Davis did NOT do. He could have refused to participate in the persecution of Christians and be a true disciple of Christ.
The Fraternal Order of Police Officers has a choice. Each police officer has a choice. They can choose to participate in the persecution of Christians and go to eternal damnation in Hell, or they can choose to be a disciple of Christ and be willing to go to jail as Kim Davis did, St. Paul did, St. Peter did, and millions of Christians did throughout the past 2,000 years.
Being a disciple of Christ is an active choice. You are not a disciple of Christ just because you go to church. Many people who go to church go for wrong reasons. Many people who go to church will go to eternal damnation in Hell, because they are not truly born again.
If you are truly born again, then you will exhibit yourself as a true disciple of Christ.
We need Christians to join the police department, precisely to become Christian testimonies by refusing to arrest true, born-again Christians who follow the Bible. This testimony will do more to advance the Christian Gospel than handing out a million Christian tracts, door to door, or preaching 1,000 sermons at a church.
Christianity was built on the faith of Christians who willingly denied themselves freedoms and even life to follow the Word of God, the Holy Bible.
Have a look at this book about Rev. Sang-Dong Han, whose willingness to defy the Law of the Land and go to jail for disobeying the Law of the Land helped the growth of Christianity in Buddhist Korea.
