    Surge Summary:  On Christmas Day, the quick and risk-taking work of police in Nashville – coupled with dramatic divine intervention – turned a potentially devastating tragedy into something alarming, but not nearly as fatal as it could have been. The incident reminds us why we need cops … and God.

    For many people, the peace and joy of Christmas morning was interrupted by a terrorist bombing in Nashville.  As of this morning, the perpetrator is believed to have died in the bombing, and authorities still do not know his motive.

    But what I want to bring to your attention is what happened when six Nashville police officers arrived on the scene just before the explosion.

    They heard an ominous recording coming from a recreational vehicle warning that it would explode in 15 minutes.  They had no idea how long that recording had been playing, but they quickly split up and went door to door telling people to evacuate immediately.

    Officer James Wells said that just moments before the blast he heard God’s voice telling him to turn around and go in the oppose direction.  He quickly reversed course right before the explosion.  Officer Wells is convinced he would have died had he not turned around.

    The officers were a cross-section of America, but they all had several things in common.  They were courageous.  They understood the requirement of their job — to run toward danger not away from it.  As a result of their heroics, many lives were saved.

    When a police officer violates his oath or engages in bad behavior, we are shown that bad behavior over and over again.  The media harps on it and holds it up not only as a failure of law enforcement but as a failure of America.

    But what these six police officers did on Christmas morning is far more representative of what 99% of police officers do every day.

    Yet, these are the people the left wants to defund.  These are the men and women accused of “systemic racism.”  These are the people some parents feel they must warn their children about.  These are the brave young men and women who are abandoning their jobs in some progressive cities where they are denigrated on a daily basis.

    As terrible as the event was, no lives were lost other than the bomber’s.  Maybe God wasn’t just whispering to that officer to go in the other direction.  Maybe God was whispering to America to go in another direction – to stop trashing faith and law enforcement officers.
