So over the weekend, the 'really angry pastor', Artur Pawlowski, was pulled over after leaving church and arrested for 'organizing an illegal in-person gathering'.

The Son of God goes forth to war,
a kingly crown to gain;
his blood red banner streams afar:
who follows in his train?
Who best can drink his cup of woe,
triumphant over pain,
who patient bears his cross below,
he follows in his train.

That martyr first, whose eagle eye
could pierce beyond the grave;
who saw his Master in the sky,
and called on him to save.
Like him, with pardon on his tongue,
in midst of mortal pain,
he prayed for them that did the wrong:
who follows in his train?

A glorious band, the chosen few
on whom the Spirit came;
twelve valiant saints, their hope they knew,
and mocked the cross and flame.
They met the tyrant's brandished steel,
the lion's gory mane;
they bowed their heads the death to feel:
who follows in their train?

A noble army, men and boys,
the matron and the maid,
around the Savior's throne rejoice,
in robes of light arrayed.
They climbed the steep ascent of heaven,
through peril, toil and pain;
O God, to us may grace be given,
to follow in their train.

I’m grateful for a state where the state government has added that requirements are recommendations for faith based gatherings. Previously when they made no distinction, they wouldn’t enforce restriction violations made in faith based settings.

Artur Pawlovsky was released on bail this a.m.

It's a disgrace. The Calgary popo should be ashamed. A swat team to take down a pastor. In the middle of a highway. <shakes head>

The popo didn't issue the arrest warrant. The court did.

As for sending in the "swat team", well, the guy they arrested has a history of resisting/confronting/antagonizing/escalating encounters with law enforcement. It makes sense that they come prepared. I'm sure a police Sargent (at least) and even someone from the prosecutors office were on hand also.

I always told my children that if they dress/drive/act in such as way as to scream "look at me - I'm different!" then they shouldn't be surprised when they get the extra attention.

Some Christians have been using Covid as an excuse to do what they have already been doing.

1. Appeasement

2. Anyone convicted?

1. Appeasement

2. Anyone convicted?
1. What Christians were wearing masks and limiting gathering sizes to "appease" the government before Covid?

2. By "convicted" I presume you mean by the HS? Surely you're not suggesting individual Christians are at liberty to act on their own convictions when it comes to these temporary restrictions on gatherings.

con·vic·tion
1. a formal declaration that someone is guilty of a criminal offense, made by the verdict of a jury or the decision of a judge in a court of law OR THE HOLY SPIRIT. (HS added and emphasized by me)

2. a firmly held belief or opinion.

EDIT - Actually, I do personally know of a group of Christians in China who had/have to limit the size of their gatherings so as not to raise the suspicion of the neighborhood spies. I suppose one could call that "appeasement". I call it courage. They'd love to be able to record and broadcast their interactions with the cops, but of course they'd never be seen again if they dared do it like the angry pastor does.

Appeasing in China would be not meeting at all, which to MY point, is what the majority of squishy Christians have been doing before Covid began. Covid gave them the cover to do it guiltless. Romans 13, right?

People who neglect assembling together should be convicted by the Holy Spirit. This is not an opinion but a command, a command that a lot of spineless Christians have practiced before the worst virus that ever existed arrived. Practice made perfect, except maybe on Christmas and Easter.

It's hard to blame them. They have been conditioned to submit to their authority. Appeasement after appeasement, American Christians have bowed to culture over the Word of God. When the time came to shut down churches it was easy.

American Christians would not meet in limited gatherings in China. They would be screaming, "Romans 13, you attention seeking, resisting, confrontational, antagonizing, escalators who encounters with law enforcement!"
