Public statement

Upon request I offered the following statement to CTV News Kitchener:

When I was interviewed by Brian Bourke (of 570 News) he asked me if my church was complying. At the time I declined to comment. I have been giving that some thought, and I have decided that while I cannot comment on what my church is doing I am willing to speak to what I have been doing personally.

As a Christian it is my duty to gather with other believers to worship God. The Bible is not ambiguous on this point. This has been patently clear to Christians for 2000 years, which is why they have gathered openly or secretly for centuries without fail even when doing so cost them their lives. Simply put, the maintenance of public worship is a non-negotiable principle. From that principle I cannot and will not stray.

Since I first seriously committed my life to Jesus I have never altered course on this; nor would I want to. I did not stop gathering with believers during the last lockdown, I continue to gather with believers now, and I will continue to do so in the future regardless of the consequences.

I have not personally concerned myself with whether the government thinks I can or cannot meet with other Christians to worship God. That does not belong to them, it belongs to Him. My allegiance belongs to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ... and I give it gladly!

I have been asked if I have considered the consequences of my actions. I can tell you that I am not worried about the virus, about public opinion, about fines or even imprisonment. I worry only about offending and dishonouring Him. The duty is mine, the consequences belong to God. All that matters to me is that Jesus may be "magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death (Philippians 1:20)." The Bible says that one day we shall all stand to give an account for the deeds done in the body. Then it will be His verdict that counts.
