As soon as any entity is defunded, whatever it
was doing previously is impeded or completely
annulled. Therefore the recent movement in
America to defund the police has, at its roots, the
goal of weakening or completely annulling the
ability of law enforcement to serve and protect
the citizens of the country. Later in this study, it
will be shown that the action to eliminate law and
order is nothing new. In fact, it began prior to
the creation of Adam and Eve and will continue
until mankind reaches the point where
lawlessness would lead to utter global
destruction unless God intervened to stop it (Mt.
First, it must be emphasized that Almighty God
created everything according to specific laws,
and these same laws sustain both the physical
and spiritual realm.
You alone are the Lord; You have made heaven,
the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the
earth and all things on it, the seas and all that
is in them, and You preserve (SHD 2421;
sustain life, cause to grow, continue to be
safe and sound) them all… (Neh. 9:6a; cf.
Heb. 1:10-12; NKJV used throughout unless
otherwise noted; Ed. note in parenthesis;
If even one of these laws were suspended
temporarily, it would lead to a catastrophe. For
instance, if Almighty God switched off “the law of
gravity” the following scenario would occur.
“Karen Masters, an astronomer at the
University of Portsmouth in the UK, has
explored the immediate consequences of
losing gravity. The first problem is that Earth is
rotating at high speed, rather like the way a
weight on a string rotates if you spin it around
your head. “Switching off” gravity is analogous
to letting go of the string. Things not attached
to the Earth would fly off into space in a
straight line that would take them away from
the surface of the Earth. Anyone unfortunate
enough to be outside at the time would quickly
be lost. Earth’s atmosphere and its oceans,
rivers and lakes would be one of the first things
to drift away into space. (“Oh, and of course
we’d all die,” writes Jolene Creighton for
Futurism). Earth itself would most likely break
apart into chunks and float off into space.”
So it’s interesting that a connection can be made
regarding the suspension a law like “gravity”, and
the catastrophic consequences that would follow,
and yet some people are incapable of seeing
there is a connection between suspending law
enforcement and anarchy ensuing. Here is how
Almighty God describes these people.
For My people are foolish, they have not
known Me. They are silly children, and they
have no understanding. They are wise to
do evil, but to do good they have no
knowledge (Jer. 4:22; cf. Jer. 9:3, 13:23;
Almighty God, in His word the Bible, did not
“cancel” anything just because it could be
construed as “unpleasant, uncomfortable, or
racist”. Instead, “the good, the bad, and the ugly”
are all in plain view for the purpose of learning
valuable lessons from the mistakes, and sins, of
the past. The Apostle Paul explained this truth as
Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be
unaware that all our fathers were under the
cloud, all passed through the sea,
2 all were
baptized into (by) Moses in the cloud and in
3 all ate the same spiritual food,
Page 2 of 5
all drank the same spiritual drink. For they
drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them,
and that Rock was Christ.
5But with most of
them God was not well pleased, for their
bodies were scattered in the wilderness.
6Now these things became our examples,
to the intent that we should not lust after
evil things as they also lusted (cf. Nu. 11:4,
34). 7And do not become idolaters as were
some of them. As it is written, “The people sat
down to eat and drink, and rose up to play” (cf.
Ex. 32:6-8). 8Nor let us commit sexual
immorality, as some of them did, and in one
day twenty-three thousand fell (cf. Nu. 25:1-
9; Ps. 106:28-30); 9nor let us test Christ, as
some of them also tested, and were destroyed
by serpents (cf. Ex. 17:2, 7; Nu. 21:5-7);
10nor murmur; as some of them also
murmured, and were destroyed by the
destroyer (cf. Ex. 16:2-3; Nu. 14:26-37).
11Now these things happened to them as
examples, and they were written for our
instruction, on whom the ends of the
ages have come (1Cor. 10:1-11; Ed. notes
in parentheses; emphasis added).
There are specific examples in scripture of
people defunding law and order, and each time
the consequences were disastrous.
Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of
man was great in the earth, and that
every intent of the thoughts of his heart
was only evil continually.
6And the Lord
was sorry that he had made man on the earth,
and he was grieved in his heart.
7So the Lord
said, “I will destroy man whom I have created
from the face of the earth, both man and beast,
creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am
sorry that I have made them.”
8But Noah found
grace in the eyes of the Lord (Gen. 6:5-8;
Sodom and Gomorrah is another example of
people defunding law and order. In this case, the
whole community was so corrupted and lawless
that they attempted to rape the men who visited
Abraham’s nephew, Lot. Thankfully, these men
were actually angels who had the power to
disperse this lawless mob (cf. Gen. 19:1).
Now before they lay down, the men of the city,
the men of Sodom, both old and young, all
the people from every quarter,
surrounded the house.
5And they called to
Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who
came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that
we may know them carnally.”
6So Lot went out
to them through the doorway, shut the door
7 and said, “Please, my brethren,
do not do so wickedly! (Gen. 19:4-7;
And they said (to Lot), “Stand back!” Then
they said, “This one came into reside
temporarily, and he keeps acting as a judge;
now we will deal worse with you than with
them.” So they pressed hard against the man
Lot, and came near to break down the door.
10But the men reached out their hands and
pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut
11And they struck the men who were
at the doorway of the house with blindness,
both small and great, so that they became
weary trying to find the door (Gen. 19:9-11;
Ed. note in parenthesis).
Because the people of Sodom and Gomorrah
were completely lawless and beyond
rehabilitation in this lifetime, God wiped these
cities off the map as an example of what will
eventually happen when law and order is
Almighty God inspired the Apostle Paul to make
it abundantly clear that mankind is to be subject
to those responsible for maintaining law and
order. If someone doesn’t agree with the
governing authorities, they can take the matter
up with God through prayer, fasting and, where
possible, voting out a particular governing
authority. In countries where voting is not
Page 3 of 5
possible, the only other option would be to seek
residence/employment in a country that allows
its people to vote.
Let every soul be subject to the governing
authorities. For there is no authority except
from God, and the authorities that exist are
appointed (SGD 5021; arranged for the
purpose of maintaining order; cf. 1Cor. 14:33)
2Therefore whoever resists the
authority resists the ordinance of God, and
those who resist will bring judgment on
3 For rulers are not (intended to
be) a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you
want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what
is good, and you will have praise from the
4 For he is God’s minister (servant) to
you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for
he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is
God’s minister (servant), an avenger to
execute wrath on him who practices evil.
5Therefore you must be subject, not only
because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for
they are God’s ministers (servants) attending
continually to this very thing.
therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes
are due, customs to whom customs, fear
(respect of office) to whom fear (respect of
office), honor to whom honor (Rom. 13:1-7;
cf. Mt. 22:15-22; Ed. notes in parentheses;
A long time ago mankind had a choice to trust
and obey God’s word, or reject it in favor of a
governing system that claimed there would be no
consequences for wrongdoing. Basically, this
latter system had no funding for law enforcement
because it didn’t believe in following the legal
system of Almighty God. In essence, it was
hostile toward God’s system of law and order as
described by the Apostle Paul.
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be
spiritually minded is life and peace.
the carnal mind is enmity against God;
for it is not subject to the law of God, nor
indeed can be (Rom. 8:6-7; cf. Isa. 30:9-11;
Therefore, anyone who ignores spiritual matters
will automatically be focused on
physical/material things, and not willing to
submit to God’s law because it is spiritual.
For we know that the law is spiritual… (Rom.
7:14a; emphasis added).
Those who reject God’s law cannot be at peace
according to what Paul said in Romans 8:6. This
is why God stated the following:
The way of peace they have not known,
and there is no justice in their ways; they
have made themselves crooked paths;
whoever takes that way shall not know peace
(Isa. 59:8; emphasis added).
Because Satan is not concerned about obeying
God’s law, he is automatically “carnally minded”
and hostile toward God’s law and
But when he (Christ) had turned around and
looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter,
saying, “Get behind me, Satan! For you
are not mindful of the things of God, but
the things of men” (Mk. 8:33; Ed. note in
parenthesis; emphasis added).
Therefore, when Satan had a conversation with
Eve, it was aimed at promoting his system of
governing which is contrary to that of Almighty
God. Eve was attracted to the idea that Satan
claimed there would be no consequence for
disobeying God’s word, or command, as stated in
And the serpent (symbol for Satan; cf. Rev.
12:9) said to the woman, “You will not surely
die” (Gen. 3:4; Ed. note in parenthesis).
Page 4 of 5
As attractive as Satan’s anti-law claim was, it
proved to be a lie because Eve and her husband
eventually died, which is the consequence of
breaking God’s command (cf. Jn. 8:44),
For the wages of sin is death… (Rom.
6:23a; emphasis added).
From this example, it is clear that the carnal mind
prefers no consequences for breaking the law,
whether it is God’s law or laws established by
human authorities to protect their fellow men
and women. Therefore, anyone who seeks to
defund police, or any other institution that serves
and protects its population, has the goal of
removing peace from society. This truth has been
confirmed beyond doubt by the actions of lawless
people who wish to tear down, rather than build
Many brave people died in World War I and II in
order to preserve the freedoms these
malcontents are able to enjoy. These same rebels
would never “sign up” to defend America if
another major war broke out. Instead, they
prefer to destroy the very things that brave
soldiers, airmen, and sailors gave their lives up
As mentioned in the opening of this study, the
movement to defund law and order began before
Adam and Eve were created. The source of this
was Satan, who originally was known as Lucifer,
which can be translated as “light bearer –
bringer”. This is very important because it
confirms there was a time in the distant past
when Lucifer brought the “light” of God’s law to
those in the spirit realm.
For the commandment is a lamp, and the
law is light… (Prov. 6:23a; emphasis added).
However, just like the ungrateful, pampered, selfcentered, and unstable rioters in society today,
Lucifer decided he no longer wanted to act in a
peaceful manner, and rebelled against his
heavenly Father who had equipped him with
wisdom, musical talent, good looks, and
appointed him to an important position within
the government of God.
You (Lucifer) were the seal of perfection, full
of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13You were in
Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone
was your covering; the sardius, topaz, and
diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire,
turquoise, and emerald with gold. The
workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
was prepared for you on the day you
14You were the anointed
cherub who covers (God’s throne); I
established (appointed) you; you were on the
holy mountain of God; you walked back and
forth in the midst of fiery stones (symbol of
God’s law; cf. Dt. 33:2). 15You were perfect
in your ways from the day you were
created, till iniquity (sin; cf. 1Jn. 3:4) was
found in you.
16By the abundance of your
trading you became filled with violence
within, and you sinned; therefore I cast you
as a profane thing out of the mountain of God;
and I destroyed you, O covering cherub, from
the midst of the fiery stones.
17Your heart was
lifted up (became proud; instead of thankful)
because of your beauty; you corrupted your
wisdom for the sake of your splendor… (Eze.
28:12b-17a; Ed. notes in parentheses;
Sadly, because Adam failed to fulfill the
commission he was given by God, Satan’s
judgment was delayed and, as a consequence,
he continues to have a negative effect/influence
on mankind, especially those who reject God’s
law and commandments.
And you (who repented of sin) were dead,
through the crimes and the sins
in which you
used to live when you were following the
way of this world, obeying the ruler who
Page 5 of 5
governs the air, the spirit (being) who is
at work in the rebellious.
3We all were
among them too in the past, living sensual
lives, ruled entirely by our own physical desires
and our own ideas; so that by nature we were
as much under God’s anger as the rest of the
world (Eph. 2:1-3; The Jerusalem Bible; Ed.
notes in parentheses; emphasis added).
Not only did Satan rebel against his heavenly
Father, he also deceived a third of all the angels
who had previously enjoyed a life of peace and
happiness as described in Job 38:7. This peace
and happiness was a direct result of obeying
His (Satan’s) tail (symbol representing lies; cf.
Isa. 9:15) drew a third of the stars (angels; cf.
Rev. 1:20b) of heaven and threw them to the
earth. And the dragon stood before the women
who was ready to give birth, to devour her
Child as soon as it was born (Rev. 12:4; Ed.
notes in parentheses).
Now, because of Satan’s misuse of the power he
had been given, these angels are awaiting
judgment for their lawless actions.
And the angels who did not keep their proper
domain, but left their own habitation, He has
reserved in everlasting chains under darkness
for the judgment of the great day (Jude 6; cf.
2Pet. 2:4; 1Pet. 3:18-20).
So those who destroy other peoples’ property,
and cause bodily harm, are under the influence
of Satan, as well as those who promote the
defunding of law and order. Although Satan
cannot be seen with human eyes, his “veil of
deception” is revealed by those who perpetrate
chaos because this is one of his specialties.
But even if our gospel (good news about
God’s soon-coming kingdom) is veiled to
those who are perishing,
the god of this age (Satan) has blinded,
who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel
of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God
(Almighty), should shine on them (2Cor. 4:3-
4; cf. Rev. 12:9; Ed. notes in parentheses).
So the lawlessness, selfishness, and stupidity
associated with defunding law and order,
confirms Satan’s deception upon people who do
not love their fellow men and women (Mt. 24:12).
These same people feel justified when they see
others suffer as a result of their destructive
actions. Thankfully, there is a judge in heaven to
whom these malcontents, including Satan and
the fallen angels, will give account at the time of
the second resurrection (Jn. 5:24-30; Rev. 20:5-
At this future judgment, all sinners will be given
enough historical “examples” to see the harm
caused by defunding law and order. Those who
repent of their past sinful conduct will be forgiven,
but anyone who refuses to accept responsibility
for their sins will inherit everlasting death. Rather
than wait for the second resurrection, it would be
advisable to repent and begin living a new life in
accordance with God’s law and commandments
now (Rom. 6:1-4).
