"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Rev. 18:4
"Christians Can't Be soldiers Christians Can't Be Cops" provides an in depth description of the relationship between the Church and government spanning the last 2,000 years. It peels away the public facade of big government exposing the true motives and goals of those in power that are contrary to the teachings and Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
These motives and goals are carried out by soldiers and police officers who are employed by the governments of the world revealing the impossibility of living out the commands of Christ while enforcing the edicts of those who do not believe in Jesus. Supported extensively by biblical truths and historical facts this book will cause any sincere Christian who currently serves the kings of the world to contemplate whether his or her actions committed in the performance his or her duties are pleasing to the Lord Jesus or not?
The picture of the world provided by the pages within is taken from a perspective uninfluenced by national or cultural bias nor swayed by denominational favoritism enabling the reader to
comprehend the magnitude of how our local environments and experiences influence our world view which is not the case with Christ's view of the world.
The Word of God is used as it is intended, like a sword piercing the ego that is created by preexisting fallacies for self-interests. This is a must read for any Christian who is contemplating serving in the military or law enforcement and who desires to be loyal to Jesus and the Church above any other person, group or institution.
Thirty-Five years before he would become a Christian Cornelius the Roman Centurion was ordered along with his fellow police officers by the authorities to kill with the sword every male child two years old and under living in Bethlehem. Mathew 2:16-18. Ten years after he became a Christian, Cornelius the Roman Centurion was ordered by the king to behead the Apostle James for being a Christian. We know that Cornelius would not have carried out the above orders which means that he would have been forced to leave his occupation as a police officer and soldier.
There were true Christians who fought for the North during the Civil war. There were true Christians who fought for the South during the Civil war. Thousands of Christians from the North killed thousands of Christians from the South and thousands of Christians killed from the South killed thousands of Christians from the North.
Both sides enacted laws to justify their positions. Christians from both sides enforced the law of the authorities, the authorities that serve God. Two authorities established by God fighting each other. The Christian in the North was rebelling against the authority of the South and therefore was rebelling against God. The Christian in the South was rebelling against the authority of the North and therefore was rebelling against God.

"And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand." Mark 3:24
Christians killing Christians, how does that bring Glory to Jesus and the Father?
"The truth of God’s Word is not exclusive to the
American perspective of the world. The truth of the
Gospel is international and therefore the truth of God’s Word is independent of any one nation’s perspective. If we can truly say that we have been crucified with Christ and it is now He who lives and reigns in us then no geographical or national bias should influence or affect our understanding of the Word of God. And it is in this perspective of the entire world that we should interpret the truths of God’s Word." Pg. 12.
"Repelled from the outskirts of its borders, the
Roman Catholic Church looked inward to vent its
frustration and anger upon those people who refused to uphold its doctrine and worship her. Thousands upon thousands were denied free-will and coerced under threat of physical violence and other penalties to capitulate to the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church through the use of the Inquisitors. In doing so the Church invalidated
its own faith by doing to others which it did not want done to itself. The Church, once the persecuted, now became the persecutor killing people whom Jesus died for." Pp. 32-33.
"So how does the Church bring about God’s will on
earth; eliminating the conflicts, the hate and the wars in the world? The Church accomplishes this by reconciling individuals to God in and through Jesus Christ the true Lord and King of the world. By bringing people together as one in Christ Jesus then the conflicts will disappear. The problem is the Church has brought the dissensions and conflicts of the world into the Body of Christ, the Church. The Church has done this by siding with one worldly position over that of another worldly position. The Church has done this by focusing on self and worldly treasure rather than treasure in heaven. This becomes no more apparent than by lifting up a weapon and killing people for the goals of one nation over that of another. The Word of God says not to become yoked to unbelievers for in doing so the believer becomes led astray from doing God’s will to doing the will of unbelievers. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 and Galatians 5:9." Pg. 64.
A thorough debate on this subject matter is found in the book. A short debate is provided by clicking here:
"Jim Kouri, who's a former vice-president of the “National Association of Chiefs of Police” has concluded that many of the same traits found in Psychopaths are also found in politicians... If the law makers are psychopaths then the laws they make are, "psychopathic laws." And if the laws are inherently "psychopathic," that is they are used for the self-interest of some at the expense of others, then police officers are enforcing psychopathic laws upon the people." Pp. 198-199.
"Jim Kouri, asserts that politicians at all levels of government are psychopaths who share the same psychopathic profile as that of serial killers and career criminals. That would mean that American soldiers are carrying out psychopathic foreign policies." Pg. 247.
"As of June 20, 2014 The National Registry of
Exonerations has documented 1,419 people exonerated of crimes they did not commit. According to a study prepared by Wayne State University Law Professor Marvin Zalman, conservatively 5,000 people and realistically up to 10,000 people are wrongfully convicted each year in the United States...This begs the question, if a person, if people in the justice system sincerely do not want to incriminate and convict innocent people then how is it possible for so many innocent people to be convicted? Answer, the American criminal justice system is patterned after the past Inquisitions of the Roman Catholic Church and drugs are the new heresy used to justify mass incarceration and property seizure." Pp. 94-95.
"Michael New refused to wear the U.N. insignia because he took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States not the United Nations. He is given a court martial and found guilty of disobeying a direct order. He is given a "Bad Conduct" discharge... Out of the 550, (U.S.), soldiers who showed up to formation on October 10, 1995; 549 were wearing the U.N. insignia and patches. When a person pledges allegiance to the United States of America he/she is pledging allegiance to the world wide government of the United Nations." Pg. 253.
"It is impossible to be allied to two kings simultaneously. You cannot pledge allegiance to any worldly king and King Jesus. You have to choose one or the other. This is the dilemma, this is the life choice that every person and every professed Christian has to make. This is a very difficult process for it means crucifying the
ego and seeking treasure in heaven rather than on earth. “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.” Mathew 6:24." Pp. 332-333.
"If the revolution was civilly legal as you say Mr.
McNats it is so because it relies on a law that is of higher authority than any king and therefore adherence to this law is submitting to an authority that takes precedent over any other authority, any other King. Therefore the submission to this law, this one supreme authority, provides the right to rebel against another authority, an inferior authority. Yet both authorities have been established by God. Therefore what you are saying Mr. McNats is that we can pick and choose which authority appeals to our interests to obey and then through obedience to the one authority disobey the authority that is contrary to our interests in direct contradiction of the scriptures which you cited. Based upon your rationale any man or group of men can declare Independence and create a sovereign state that separates from the state that currently rules them for any arbitrary reason and upon doing so wage war against their former state through the justification of self-defense. 'For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh, (catches), the wise in their own craftiness.' 1 Corinthians 3:19. 'Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts.' Luke 16:15'...You just argued for the right of the Jews to rebel against Rome, for the Jews had at least as much of a right and an even greater right to declare Independence than the colonists did, (which is a direct contradiction of Romans 13:1-5 which you have stated that all Christians are to submit to the governing authorities)." Pp. 355-356.
George Washington was an active Mason for 47 years, from 20 years of age in 1752 to his death in 1799 at the age of 67 whereupon he was buried with full Masonic rites. Washington rose to the rank of Master Mason and as Acting Grand Master in September 1793 he laid the cornerstone for the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Washington wrote the following letter:
George Washington, letter to the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, December 27, 1792
To the Grand Master of the Free & Accepted Masons, for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Flattering as it may be to the human mind, & truly honorable as it is to receive from our fellow citizens testimonies of approbation for exertions to promote the public welfare; it is not less pleasing to know that the milder virtues of the heart are highly respected by a society whose liberal principles must be founded in the immediate laws of truth and justice. To enlarge the sphere of social happiness is worthy the benevolent design of the Masonic Institution; and it is most fervently to be wished, that the conduct of every member of the fraternity, as well as those publications which discover the principles which actuate them may tend to convince Mankind that the grand object of Masonry is to promote the happiness of the human race.
While I beg your acceptance of my thanks for the "Book of Constitutions" you have sent me, and the honor you have done me in the dedication, permit me to assure you that I feel all those emotions of gratitude which your affectionate address & cordial wishes are calculated to inspire: and I sincerely pray that the Great Architect of the Universe may bless you and receive you hereafter into his immortal Temple.
"For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness." 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough." 2 Corinthians 11:3-4
"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel-- which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse! Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ." Galatians 1:6-10
"You shall have no other gods before me."
"You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below."
Inside the base of The Washington Monument is a winged sun disc. Two snakes are affixed to the disc with a six pointed star over a relief of George Washington. The winged sun disk is called Behdety, an Egyptian sky god. Later is emerged with Egyptian god Horus becoming, Horus of Behdet.
In ancient Egypt the winged disk was a combined emblem of the sun, a double-headed cobra and eagle or vulture wings. Winged sun discs are also known from other ancient cultures, the Sumerian, the Assyrian and the Hittite for instance.
Historians assume that a pair of falcon wings were a symbol for heaven. The serpents (uraei) are the symbol of wisdom, and were seen on depictions from the late Old Kingdom. The ancient Egyptians saw the sun itself as an egg, namely the egg of the sun god Ra (pronounced as "ray") which was radiating with light. According to various occultists, it would refer to the shell, egg or vehicle of the soul.
According to occultist "Madame" H.P. Blavatsky's work: "the Secret Doctrine" (1888) ", the egg was the symbol of immortality and infinity, and of (re)birth. This winged "egg" was the representation of "devachan"; the heaven/nirvana, and both the rebirth of man and his spiritual renewal.
The Washington Monument
What exactly is the Washington Monument? It is an Egyptian Obelisk, used by Freemasons to obtain power.
The obelisk symbolized the sun god Ra, and during the brief religious reformation of Akhenaten was said to be a petrified ray of the Aten, the sundisk. It was also thought that the god existed within the structure.

"But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons."
1 Timothy 4:1
The Holy Spirit is truth.
The Holy Spirit lives in true believing Christians.
The Holy Spirit teaches and guides Christians into perfect truth.
The Holy Spirit does not lie.
The Holy Spirit will not condone nor participate in the teaching of false doctrines or false religions that lead people away from eternal life found only in God the Father and Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit prompts Christians to worship the Father in truth and Spirit.
The Holy Spirit does not lead Christians into false worship.
Freemasonry is not the truth.
Freemasonry is a lie.
Freemasonry leads people away from eternal life found only in Jesus Christ and God the Father.
Freemasonry practices false worship.
The Holy Spirit would never participate in Freemasonry.
A true Christian filled with the Holy Spirit will be unable to participate in Freemasonry without being convicted by the Holy Spirit that it is sinful.
Should a Christian continue practicing Freemasonry despite the conviction of the Holy Spirit eventually the quenched and grieved Spirit will disappear as the person's conscience becomes seared to the sin.
Although it is possible for a Christian to become a Mason just as it is possible for a Christian to fall into sin; however given the nature of this particular sin, premeditated and deliberate false worship, even the deification of false gods, the likelihood of a true Christian maintaining this practice of false worship and false doctrine regarding salvation is about as likely as a true Christian worshiping golden calf, Shiva, Vishnu, Buddha, Amon, Osiris, Ra, Horus, Allah, Baal, Bel, Ashtoreth, Molech, Yu-huang, Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite, Mars, Venus, Caesar and the Sun, moon and stars.
The annual session of the Southern Baptist Convention
(SBC), June 15-17, 1993, concluded that “many tenets and teachings of Freemasonry are not compatible with Christianity or Southern Baptist doctrine.”
Masons teach that God has a secret name, "Abaddon and "Jab-Bul-On," which if correctly translated it means Baal or Bel and Om derived from Hebrew, Phoenician and Hindu Deities, hence the reason why Freemasonry identifies many pagan deities as all being the true God of the Bible.
All pagan deities even those claiming to be representative of the true God of the Bible are are contradicted by the teaching of the bible. In order to believe in many different deities as being the same as the true God and only God of the Bible, as being the same as Jesus a person must reject what the Bible says about the true God of the Bible and true worship of the true God.
The 31st degree of the Scottish Rite Southern Jurisdiction practices Egyptian religion by placing the eternal destination of a person in the hands of Egyptian Gods Horus, Isis and Osiris assigning the same authority to the Egyptian god Osiris as Christians give to Jesus.
Christians are not to take oaths, yet the Masons require their members to take very extreme oaths, the "bloody oaths."
Mathew 5:34-37 and James 5:12.
The oath of a Master Mason:
“All this I most solemnly and sincerely promise and swear,
. . . binding myself under no less penalty than that of
having my body severed in two, my bowels torn from thence
and burned to ashes, and these scattered before the four
winds of heaven, that no more remembrance might be
had among men or Masons of so vile a wretch as I should
be, should I, in the least, knowingly or wittingly violate or
transgress this my Master Mason obligation. So help me
God and keep me steadfast."
Masons believe the Square, and Compasses are equal to the Holy Bible making up the Furniture of the Lodge. Additionally, any Holy Book will do for any
particular lodge's predominate faith. In a Jewish Lodge there would be only
Jewish scriptures and in a Muslim Lodge a Koran equating the Koran as being equal to that of the only Word of God, the Holy Bible.
Freemasonry teaches that salvation may be attained through good works.
Christianity teaches a person is saved by faith alone apart from works, from obeying the law.
Romans 3:28, 4:4-5, 11:6; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5 and Galatians 2:21.
Masons believe in a Supreme Being whom they identify as the
"Grand Architect of the Universe."
This is not the God of the Bible. This is not Jesus Christ.
"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
"And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
"I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist."
2 John 1:7
"Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world."
1 John 4:1-3
"Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst?"
1 Corinthians 3:16
"The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father."
"It will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
"God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
"The Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you."
"But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you."
"But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come."
"And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit."
"When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them."

Given the subject matter of this book it has been difficult to next to impossible to find pastors, teachers or theologians willing to support or refute the premise of this book. As you can imagine should any well known American pastor or bible teacher support the basic truths and historical facts put forth in this book he would be summarily alienated and ostracized from his colleagues and followers for going against the grain of the prevailing belief in western society that Christians can be soldiers and cops and labeled UN-American and UN-patriotic. Below is a list of pastors and teachers who were sent of copy of the book anywhere from five to ten months ago. Along with being provided the book it was requested that they explain why Christians can be soldiers and cops contrary to the premise put forth in the book. Presently not one of the pastors or their ministries who have been provided the book have been willing to provide a counter to the premise, the biblical truth expounded upon in the book.
