Should a citizen, particularly a Christian, always cooperate with the police? Most Christians, thinking of Romans 13:1-4 and 1 Peter 2:13, automatically say "yes." And it is true that Christians have a scriptural obligation to obey the higher powers. But those of us living in America now find ourselves living in a police state, and we are also commanded to be "wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." The following lecture was given by a Christian law professor, James Duane of Regent University in Virginia Beach. Following his lecture, he gave "equal time" to a local police officer, who not only agreed with Prof. Duane's lecture, but explained it more fully. I am unable to upload that video, but it is available. This is food for thought. The title of this post was the title of Prof. Duane's lecture.
With reference to the final video: "Safe Arms Review" is not an organization, but a YouTube user who maintains his own channel. I do not endorse his channel, nor do I condemn it; it was merely the source from which the above videos were obtained.
