If he's not taking the jab as a Christian, then he's a "good cop" in that he's not a robot following orders. Likely indoctrinated in his youth though, about "law" and "order' and such.

Exactly, the mandates are to purge the ones with morals out of police and military for the revolution.

I'm frustrated with cops as much as anyone else after the riots, and with doctors after the Covid madness, but there's always 10% or so decent ones, who are usually Christian.

David Wood has a balanced view, he's a Christian now but when he was in prison he noted the different types of correctional officers, many were corrupt, others just wanted a paycheck, but he noticed the ones who were kind to him almost always were Christian.

Edit: the 5 types of COs sounds like Dungeons and Dragons alignments. lol

Then again, how can you be Christian and good? Presumably goodness is not dependent on fear of burning in hell.

Nothing in Scripture and tradition indicate that being a law enforcement officer will send you to hell.

The closest we have to directly mention this is in the New Testament, is when John the Baptist is asked about moral guidance. Luke 3:14: Then some soldiers asked him, “And what should we do?” He replied, “Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely—be content with your pay.”

Further, the "good thief" crucified next to Christ says the two thieves deserved their punishments while Christ didn't, and he is not contradicted by Christ whose response to the good thief is to assure him of his salvation, thus indicating that enforcing laws for the non-innocent at least, is acceptable.

So, provided you're a cop who is not crooked (bribes, extortion, lying on the witness stand, etc.) and your not actively enforcing immoral and unjust laws to the extent they should resign (after all, we live in an entire system that is unjust, but it was even more so in Roman days), then I presume a cop is not geared towards hell automatically.

I'm no theologian, but this is my take.
