Covid, the Church, and Christian Duty
Sincere believers are asking:
As we watch the dying of the West and demise of the free world, how should Christians respond?
Should the Church have any prophetic voice in society against tyranny and for freedom?
How should Christians respond to coercion and mandates (masks, vaccines) in the workplace, at school, and elsewhere?
Should believers defend human rights and civil liberties as coworkers, neighbours and citizens? If so, when and how do we resist tyranny without confusing the mission of the Church or harming our Christian witness?
How do we know when political agendas have wrongly polarised us or not?
What is the place of godly patriotism in the Great Commission, without confusing the cross and the flag?
Is 'For God and country' a biblical motivation?
What does being 'gospel-centred' mean when applying the gospel and Christ's lordship to moral and ethical issues of our day?
How do we think biblically about a theology of the face, and about free speech and dissent?
What happens when the 'tyranny of the weaker brother' or the 'greater good' rules a church, a society?
In seeking biblical answers to the above questions, what can we also learn from church history and modern examples?
Read on for answers to these questions and more!
"There are only two possible forms of government: Either people rule themselves and the government exists to protect that freedom; or government dominates people and they have no freedom. Right now we're moving from the former to the latter. People are giving up their freedom in order for government to take care of them. To pull that off, you have to be lied to, truth must be obscured, chaos must reign. Then in the ignorance and confusion of it all, fear drives people to run to government for security. Cantrell unmasks that in this important book and offers a biblical response, showing the role of the Church as 'the pillar of truth' in a world of lies (1 Tim. 3:15). I've used this material extensively and can recommend it to you wholeheartedly."
John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; Chancellor, The Master's University and Seminary
