About the Book

Real World Application of the Judeo-Christian faith for the Military, Intelligence, and Law Enforcement communities. Principles and guidelines for those serving in all nations and cultures.

The Lord God says “Thou shalt not kill”, yet kill we do. Cain killed Abel. Criminals steal, destroy, and kill. Soldiers kill the enemy. The enemy kills us. Then comes the day you pull the trigger and send someone into eternity. You did what must be done. Some say it had to be done, but you still sinned. Others say it’s all a sin and should not be done it all. But, where does that leave you? This book has the answers.

Is “Thou shalt not kill” really that cut and dry? Are there Biblical precedents or provisions for Christians to do what is necessary in the line of duty without sinning? Is doing your duty, to God and Country, the dirty work, really a sin? No, it’s just the opposite. What God authorizes and the support He provides will surprise, encourage, and empower you.
