Fellow Christian and fellow Christian officers: Stand firm! Never Surrender!
The word "radical" is often misapplied and misunderstood. Here's a Bible study the explains God's standard as it relates to that word: "Radical" Cops and Radical Christians in Radical Times.
Understanding our wholly biblical servant-WARRIOR ethos and calling: "Warriors for Christ."
For us old timers (sadly), the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics was something we memorized in the academy and actually applied to what did do/did on the street. Now here's the Christian (God's) version of this classic document (in Bible study format): The Christian Law Enforcement Code of Ethics.
So many say things like "RIP" or Rest in Peace when a colleague, friend or family member passes away. However, do you know that this term actually means and who is reserved for? Folks, ONLY those who have been born again in Christ BEFORE they die will actually "RIP." So important that we get this right. Click on "Rest in Peace?"
The mission of The Centurion Law Enforcement Ministry (TCLEM), is to educate law enforcement officers (police, deputies, troopers, investigators, parole/probation, corrections, military, etc.) about God's unique call on their lives as outlined in God's word (Bible) and to lead officers and their families to a saving knowledge of and close personal relationship with our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. Through same, we also seek to positively impact our profession by raising up Christian servant-leaders and reduce our historically high rates of divorce, alcoholism, depression, suicide and related issues.
Law enforcement is a God-ordained ministry of service and protection for our society as outlined in the Bible in Romans 13. Inasmuch as our very authority as peace officers is given to us by God, TCLEM seeks to affirm our calling as servant-warriors ("sheepdogs") and leaders while at the same time developing the our spiritual, family and personal lives through Bible study, peer fellowship, and group accountability along with active involvement in a solid Christ-centered/Bible-based church. We also seek to infuse our profession with godly leaders who will in fact LEAD (serve) from a biblical world view.
