Winning a Gunfight

Does physically surviving a gunfight mean you won? Not by a long shot. Many people survive gunfights. In fact, most people who are in a gunfight survive. But there’s a difference between surviving and winning.

Winning is More than Surviving

Police and military chaplains are called on to minister to those who kill. Violence is shunned in our society, but justified violence is sometimes necessary to stop unjustified violence. Even the wise King Solomon said, there is “a time to kill” (Eccl. 3:3).

Suicide is Not an Option

America’s law enforcement officers are significantly more likely to die by suicide than being murdered in the line of duty.
