'Obey Christ, No Matter the Cost': Canada Pastor Arrested on New Charges

In an undisclosed location, a congregation of believers gather to worship, though by law, they are not allowed to do so.

In this underground church, the sounds of praises ringing out are muffled by the whir of helicopter blades beating through crisp Canadian air.

Canadian Pastor Tim Stephens was arrested Monday after his underground church met for the second week in a row following the shutdown of its campus for violating province COVID-19 rules.

Still-Silent Shepherds—An Open Letter to Post-Pandemic Pastors

"What's going on in California?" is a question I've been asked a lot lately. This time last year, we launched what became known as #TheStadiumRevival. People came from all over Southern California to experience God in profound and powerful ways, and we are doing it again this year. (More can be found here and below.)

Since then, we've experienced incredible church growth as the result of staying open during the COVID crisis. Pastors such as John MacArthur, Jack Hibbs and Rob McCoy experienced tremendous growth as well. It's crystal clear that people are hungry for the truth. Many churchgoers are also tired of pastors capitulating to ungodly liberal organizations and agendas. If anything, the pandemic revealed what was really inside our hearts.

I didn't rush to release this article, and I find no joy in doing so. I sat on it for over a year as I fasted and prayed fervently for direction, but the burden never left. I love pastors and understand that COVID was difficult to navigate, but I kept wondering: Where are the Isaiahs and Jeremiahs calling us to repentance? Where is the boldness of Paul, Peter, and John the Baptist? Why are the shepherds silent?

Why Saving America Will Come With the Discipling of Souls

Calendars reflect we are halfway through 2021, but in many ways, it feels like 2020 hasn't ended. Although some pre-pandemic normalcy is returning to American society, new COVID-19 cases are still being reported in various parts of the world. Unemployment claims in the U.S. are dropping, but the cost of living and consumer goods is climbing in a post-pandemic marketplace.

The last few weeks have played out like a soap opera with the unearthing of arguably the greatest public health con in world history. Amid politically charged headlines and false narratives, truth is becoming scarcer. The days of trusting media outlets, government entities and so-called health experts are long gone.

The story is still breaking on Dr. Anthony Fauci's compromised emails, allegedly discussing gain-of-function research with scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Meanwhile, the latest COVID-19 vaccine analyses reveal potential ineffectiveness in those who have recovered from the virus.
