I believe that police lives matter. As a retired 20-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, I love the law enforcement community. Whether police officer, deputy sheriff, highway patrolman, state trooper, constable, sworn, or reserve–the men and women in the law enforcement community are family to me. And this is why I have written the Police Lives Matter gospel tract, injunction with Marv Plementosh of One Million Tracts.
I challenge EVERY Christian to purchase at least one pack of these tracts and make a concerted effort to thank police officers in their communities for their serve, by putting the gospel of Jesus Christ into their hands.
Here’s the text of the tract.
#PoliceLivesMatter. Your life matters. I’m giving you this card because I appreciate your service to your community. I’m aware that a member of the law enforcement family, your family, gives his or her life in the line of duty, making the ultimate sacrifice every 60 hours (in the United States). “Thank you” seems woefully inadequate for not only what can be rightly described as your heroic efforts, but also your daily commitment to protect and serve. There are many people like me who greatly appreciate your sacrificial service. It is with appreciation and respect for you—not only as a public servant, but as a human being (my neighbor)—that I share the following with you. Every human being, people on both sides of the badge, will one-day stand before their Creator to give an account for their life. God, the perfect Judge, will judge you according to the law He has written on your heart. You know it is wrong to lie, steal, take God’s name in vain, engage in sexual immorality, or hate another human being because you were created in the image of God, and God is not a liar, thief, blasphemer, fornicator, adulterer, or murderer. Because God is good, He must punish sin. The punishment he has determined for sin is eternity in hell. Yet God has also provided a way for you to be declared innocent and receive His forgiveness. Your only hope is for Jesus, the God-Man, to save you from the wrath of God. God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth—fully God and fully man, yet without sin. He voluntarily shed his innocent blood and died on the cross, taking upon Himself the punishment you rightly deserve for your sins against God. Three days later, He forever defeated sin and death when He rose from the grave. Repent and believe the gospel while God has given you time. I am praying for your safety.
