What Can A Pastor Do? Bill C-4 in Canada

What Can A Pastor Do? Bill C-4 in Canada

It is not an understatement to say that Bill C-4 could have severe effects on the witness of the Church in Canada. Due to the rushed nature of this legislation, pastors, priests, and Christian counsellors have been reeling since its adoption. Many are not sure what they can now say in a pastoring conversation.


We hope to add some insight into this predicament. We are extremely grateful to have Dr. Iain Provan as a featured guest today. Dr. Provan has spent a significant portion of his last few years wading into this problem and speaking to countless church leaders about Bill C-4 and the impact on Christian ministry.

We continue to create these episodes as a service to the church in Canada. If you are listening and enjoying the content, please leave a comment with requests for future episodes. If there is a topic you would like us to cover, we want to know. Also, if you know of someone who would benefit from this podcast, please share it with them. Thank you for listening.

A Biblical Frame: Current Events in Perspective
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.
