Pastor and Lobbyist to Rock Ontario
February 23, 2009
Jim Blake the National Chairman of Concerned Christians Canada and Artur Pawlowski the lead pastor of Street Church Ministries are heading to Ontario to speak at universities, churches and on the streets of its cities. They are prepared to rock the status quo, and to stretch the politically correct norms of speech. They will talk about freedoms within Canada will challenge humanistic views and engage young and old with truths from the Bible. They are preparing to awaken a sleeping throng of believers to the reality that silence in the face of increasing poverty, violence and immorality is no option.
“There are sleepy Christians just waiting for the trumpet call. The problem is that the battle has begun, the cultural war has already ensued, but some of the warriors ate too much breakfast, and are too lethargic to fight. Now is the time to rise up and face the culture head on, bringing truth back to the forefront, and reintroducing the nation to its Heritage – Christ,” stated Jim Blake National Chairman Concerned Christians Canada.
Mr. Blake and Mr. Pawloski are prepared for the challenges they will face and are well aware that what they will be speaking about will be deemed controversial. Both are committed to encouraging Canadians to exercise the so called “tolerance” that they so often claim to cherish. Tolerance that does not in fact allow all perspectives to be discussed is no tolerance at all.
“Coming from a communist background, I understand the importance of freedoms. With democracy you must both cherish it and exercise it, even if some will say ‘that’s not politically correct’. Let’s talk about homosexuality, abortion, pre-marital sex, politics, let’s stir conversations, prompting people to think. Let’s reason together. You are allowed not to believe, and I am free to believe. Not like we see right now, with some saying ‘my way or the highway’, and then they drag you before kangaroo courts. I respect that they have their beliefs, I only ask the same. That’s the freedom that our forefathers died for. It’s like Martin Luther King Jr. Said, ‘our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter’.”
Jim Blake and Artur Pawlowski will be travelling from city to city during the period between Wednesday, March 4, and Sunday March 15. Both men are open to be interviewed by the media and expect to cause a stir. They may be reached for comments at 403-607-4434 or via e-mail at [email protected] or [email protected].
