What do you do with a person who shows up Sunday who has a restraining order against them? Does it seem very Christian to call 911 as directed?

one has to leave or a phone call has to be made. yes you could argue that a church is a sanctuary but there are other churches so why invite trouble. if the order is not enforced then it might be deemed frivolous and could backfire on the petitioner. set a precedent whereby the next intrusion may not be taken seriously. is it Christian? obeying the law is.

Absolutely. I've known people who have put restraining orders on people and it was for a very good reason. I mean, in some situations, we're talking life and death here.

We must respect the laws of man as long as they don't contradict God's law. Give someone a chance to leave, if they do not then it's there decision not yours that gets them in trouble. I loathe the thought of calling the police, being on the wrong side of the law for so long, but I wouldn't hesitate.
