Abolishing or significantly reforming the police has been a topic of serious and contentious discussion in 2021 with very little common ground to be found between the opposing sides. In this episode, we attempt to answer some basic questions and answer from a biblical perspective. Are police even biblical? Should they be abolished? Whose job is it to protect people in a free society? How did the police come to exist and to be accepted in modern culture? Whose job is it to make sure that the law is followed? How did we end up where we are as a society, and is there even a way to imagine a world where police are not necessary?
