WATCH: Pastors divided on civil disobedience

“When a minister of the gospel is carrying out his God-given duties and calling his people to worship in obedience to God’s commands, that is the furthest thing from blaspheme.”

Christians are divided as some church leaders speak out against ‘defiant pastors,’ claiming they “blaspheme Jesus with their actions.” I spoke with Faith Presbyterian Church Pastor Steve Richardson in re

    I am very disgusted with Matheson’s version. Churches have brought this problem of lies and lockup on themselves because they do not rightly divide the word of truth. In Romans 13 we see that God’s intention was that government would be there for our GOOD not our DEMISE!! That’s HUGE!! The churches I have been associated with have long advocated no involvement with politics thus leaving the governing of our nation to the ungodly!

    Plus if we knew more about the truth of covid we would be free! We seriously need to use some God-given judgement and serve up some well-deserved justice.

    One bad thing I can see for churches is these restrictions discourage new church goers or visitors. Not many people out there can look at someone with a mask on and be able to recognize them next time they see them let alone if they were to see them unmasked. It’s almost like you never met them. That really is the point of church, to meet with your fellow believers and share and encourage each other in your walk with Christ. You cannot get this from watching church on tv. If the government all of a sudden decides church’s can’t have more that 15 people or tell them to stay masked and 6 feet apart that is a huge problem cause it conflicts with the whole point of church. If the leaders of the churches decide that they will comply with governments just to check a box off in Scripture they may see their church disappear. It’s all about love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as yourself. I don’t see in what way these 3 pastors have failed to uphold these core commandments where the entirety of the law is fulfilled. Im all for submitting to governing authorities but when it asks me to snitch on my neighbor, shame me for helping someone in need cause I can’t maintain 6 feet, or close church doors to those searching for hope. I cannot submit to that.

    Good job Nadine. I’m on Richardson’s side on this one. His counterpart asking where the honour is in what Pastor Pawlowski did might want to remember that Christianity is completely based on a Jesus who suffered the shameful death of being whipped and crucified naked by people threatened by his influence!

    Then Peter got crucified by Rome because Nero went mad and blamed the Christians even though he set the fires himself by which Rome burned!

    1 Peter 3:12-18

    12 “For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
    And His ears attend to their prayer,
    But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

    13 Who is there to harm you if you prove zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, 15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; 16 and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. 17 For it is better, if God should will it so, that you suffer for doing what is right rather than for doing what is wrong. 18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;

MAKICHUK: Legendary Wings’ goalie Crozier deserves to be in the Hall

I also remember the smell of the hotdogs, the walls of cool Wings souvenirs and paraphernalia, none of which we could afford and watching the warriors come off the ice on a red carpet at the end of the game.

My dad thought he looked familiar. He was working on this car, at a GM dealership in Windsor at the time, doing front-end alignment, wheel balancing and new car pre-delivery inspections. Suddenly this friendly little guy comes along, introduces himself ... it's Roger Crozier, the Red Wings goalie. Dad has a nice chat with him, discovers he's a nice, humble Canadian boy. He also happens to

SLOBODIAN: Liberal MP Atwin wants racist theory taught to kids

CRT is based on a Marxist radical left-wing definition of culture and history designed to create factions, to pit people against one another.

Fredericton MP Jenica Atwin appears to have shifted her focus from trashing Jews to promoting tainting the minds of school children. Good fortune befell the Green Party of Canada when Atwin threw a hissy fit and bailed last June to join the Liberals. That’s when Atwin condemned former Green Party leader Annamie Paul’s appeal for dialogue and de-escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian confl

MORGAN: It’s time to break up the Alberta Teacher’s Association

Is the Alberta Teacher's Association (ATA) a professional organization, a disciplinary body, or a union? The answer to all three questions is 'yes', and it has created a gross conflict of interest. The ATA is a union by every definition but name. It takes mandatory dues from teachers, it negotiate collective agreements, and has the ability to call a strike. It advocates on behalf of teachers t

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
