Insights on the Covid-19 Pandemic and Vaccines with Dr. Steven Pelech of UBC


And this is the way to break out of the imaginary encirclement of our inertness, the easiest way for us and the most devastating for the lies. For when people renounce lies, lies simply cease to exist. Like parasites, they can only survive when attached to a person.

We are not called upon to step out onto the square and shout out the truth, to say out loud what we think—this is scary, we are not ready. But let us at least refuse to say what we do not think!

This is the way, then, the easiest and most accessible for us given our deep-seated organic cowardice, much easier than (it’s scary even to utter the words) civil disobedience à la Gandhi.

Our way must be: Never knowingly support lies! Having understood where the lies begin (and many see this line differently)—step back from that gangrenous edge! Let us not glue back the flaking scales of the Ideology, not gather back its crumbling bones, nor patch together its decomposing garb, and we will be amazed how swiftly and helplessly the lies will fall away, and that which is destined to be naked will be exposed as such to the world.

And thus, overcoming our temerity, let each man choose: Will he remain a witting servant of the lies (needless to say, not due to natural predisposition, but in order to provide a living for the family, to rear the children in the spirit of lies!), or has the time come for him to stand straight as an honest man, worthy of the respect of his children and contemporaries? - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Live not by Lies

Published in November of 2021, or 621 days after the WHO declared the Covid-19 Pandemic, Till We Have Faces is Dr. Bruce Hindmarsh’s attempt at cataloguing and critiquing Covid policies in Canada. Dr. Steven Pelech wrote the foreword to this essay and it is because of that connection that we have invited him onto the show this week.

Dr. Pelech is a leading researcher in Covid-19 immunity and we are grateful to sit with him and grill him with questions. We, like many of our listeners, are simply seeking the truth and we desire to listen and learn from experts.

In this longer than normal episode, we wander through the details and intricacies of governmental covid restrictions, vaccines and vaccine effectiveness, and we seek advice for ourselves, the listeners, and the Church.

Thank you for listening and please share this episode to increase our listeners. We exist to serve and strengthen the Church.

A Biblical Frame: Current Events in Perspective
Welcome to A Biblical Frame. This is a spontaneous project that arose from a group of pastors and theologians who recognized the great need for theological direction for Christ’s church in Canada.
Canada has faced totalitarian restrictions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. While there may have been a time to acquiesce to the provincial health officers, that time is coming to an end and the church needs help.
