We teach and warn against the evils of feminism and it has so very many forms in this wicked culture. (see a link on feminism below with many articles) We see it at play in the work place, schools, in media, government, marriages and sometimes it is the worst in so called churches. Many people do not realize but it was present in the first sin situation as Eve took it upon herself to listen to the serpent then offer Adam sin. He was wrong as well and fell for it.
See Genesis 3
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
We also can trace it in divorce, abortion, much of the pagan Gaia earth worship/witchcraft, goddess groups; even the gay and transgender movement within feminism. It is a dangerous way as it opposes God directly and thus must be rooted out in any true saints life!
Today I want to discuss specifically the feminism we see in police forces, at times. To be clear; we honor and support the law and are always striving to be legal and to be at peace per Heb 12:14
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
To be honest, I have found that a fare percentage of female police when they show up as peacefully I preach (because someone called them) are "more adversarial towards me" a street preacher then the male officers. Not sure why? No matter I encourage you preachers to handle the female officers the same way we handle the males and I have articles about that below. We should be calm, respectful but firm about the 1st Amendment right to preach on public places (Apostle Paul asked for his romans rights / see Acts 16) Often they will try to just run you off or make up rules / threats to silence you but peaceful street preaching is our right so we can stand on it to glorify God. I encourage you to stand/focus on these points, when it comes to police.
*Greet them as they make contact
*Ask am I breaking any laws?
*Stay focused on the fact that you are here to preach
*Witness the gospel to them if they seem receptive
*If they try to move you along make sure they have grounds to do so
*They only have authority over you on mans law; not Gods law
*Go back to preaching as soon as possible
*Thank them for their service (you may need them if you get beat up)
Interestingly at times you will even get upset officers try to get you to engage in theology to shut you down. I find most times that is not wise as they are on the job and it usually won't go well. Offer them your card and say call or email me later but I am here to preach. On occasions, I have and do stand and witness to officers as they were calm and seemingly well meaning but be led by the spirit and be wise is all.
In the following video, you will see a female officer approach me/my wife as I was peacefully preaching on PUBLIC property. I believe she had a chip about something??? and she totally crossed the law line. She had no business questioning me on my stance with anabaptists or women. She wanted to debate me on theology and she did in a feminist way so I did not go there long. I shut that down and went back to preaching and she wasn't happy. Remember to remind them they are there to uphold the law but; some police need to know they are NOT the law. Many will try to make up rules to run you off, so know the laws and stand firm to preach like Paul did. Of course not to a arrest as if a officer is that angry, you best leave and follow up with his superior to ask to why you were run off later.
Enjoy this video and test me to see how I did with this female officer? I should note, she then sat in her car, two other male officers showed up and they all sat and watched / listen while I preached on for 2 or 3 hours in a park to a group of anabaptists. (See the link on the street preaching below)
Note: I do often talk to females (with my wife there) on matters of God but I must be careful to not step on her husbands authority and in this case, she was not in a emotional place to talk truth with on that day. We always give all the police gospels cards so they can reach out.
If you street preach enough; you will encounter police about 80 percent of the time we have found. Get used to it and get good at handling them as it is part of the job God called us to. (and they need to gospel too) It will build your confidence for sure. I have dealt with hundreds of police and I have no arrests to date. Praise God!!!!
