Jerry Bowyer: The Church and State in a Time of Pandemic

Should churches defy state shutdown orders in order to gather in person yet again?

This question goes to the heart of both America’s founding principles and the core convictions of Christianity. The early American position was strongly influenced by the Bible—and a disposition “to be subject to the governing authorities.”

But sometimes the state becomes tyrannical and forbids what God commands. What then? We reason with them, we exercise patience, we appeal to other authorities—as Paul appealed to Caesar.

When all other options have been exhausted, then we respectfully disobey.

The evangelical pastor John MacArthur recently quoted the Puritan Richard Baxter, “where he says, ‘If the magistrate, asks you to refrain from meeting because of a pestilence, you do not meet. On the other hand, if the magistrate tries to force you not to meet because of persecution of Christianity, you meet anyway.’”

That’s wisdom.

Jerry Bowyer: Amazon Moves in a Chilling Direction

Amazon recently announced that it will no longer sell books by Dr. Joseph Nicolosi and others which help people deal with unwanted same-sex attraction.

With this, we’ve crossed a new boundary in the no-longer latent authoritarianism of the sexual revolution. In Judaism and Christianity, your nature is defined by God. In ancient Greek thought, it was defined by nature. Our modern on-going sexual revolution threw all of that aside and said that you define yourself, your will decides your identity.

But now even that restraint is being thrown off, and a one-way door is erected in its place. If you want to self-identify as gay, you can, and help is available. But if you want to self-identify as straight, the help window is slammed shut.

Amazon is moving in a chilling direction: from online book seller to online book censor.
