Resistance in Perspective with Michael Rectenwald

"Resistance does not mean revolution."

Welcome to Episode 3 of A Biblical Frame. Today we take up the topic of resistance.

It is shocking how much Canada (and the world) can change in the 3 weeks since our last episode and simultaneously stay the same.

Trudeau has dealt with the “fringe minority” in Ottawa, Russia has invaded Ukraine, provinces and territories across Canada have begun to lift restrictions and yet the church is still being torn apart by restrictive covid policies. Pastors, priests, and parishioners everywhere are wondering if and when Christians ought to resist them. 

“So why do we resist? Well, we resist not only to push back the evil, and immediate harms that go with it, but we also resist the evil things sinful people do as a loving warning to them in order to win back sinners for God. Issuing warning to those who think they will be able to escape from the inescapable God is a form of love. This is why the prophets thunder with words and actions of resistance; because to resist in this way is a form of love.” - Ed Gerber

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.
