(Ray Fava – Evangelical Dark Web) It can be easily said that over the last two and a half years, the church has failed miserably in its response to lockdowns. Instead of telling the truth, the church capitulated to, if not, enthusiastically promoted the lies. It has unfortunately been the less theologically robust camps that defied government tyranny. John MacArthur would invoke the doctrine of lesser magistrates a little over two years ago, and James Coates would go to jail for over fifty days in Canada. Yet a plethora of theologically robust leaders, many of whom were faithful the last two years, and they have crafted a statement condemning the government’s actions and created a theological framework so that it never happens again.
On August 31, an international group of reformed Christians dropped the new statement, adding it to a list including the Nashville Statement and the Dallas Statement. The list of initial signers included Doug Wilson, James Coates, James White, Jared Longshore, Jeff Durbin, Joel Webbon, John MacArthur, Justin Peters, Phil Johnson, Tim Conway, Tom Buck, and Voddie Baucham.
