- 1Corinthians 7:23 — Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the slave of men. — St. Paul
- “We as lions should never bow down to the hyenas.” — Pastor Artur Pawlowski 4-6-21
- “Pastor, you threw them out of the Temple, and it was a wonderful thing to see them retreating down the stairs.” – Mark Steyn, FOX News
Several days ago I posted the story and video of the Canadian Pastor, Artur Pawlowski, who threw the mask-enforcer police out of his church when they tried to disrupt a Christian Passover service.
Now, Fox News contributor Mark Steyn, also a Canadian, has interviewed that very same pastor on national television. You can watch the full broadcast above, but here’s the gist of the interview, which I believe every Christian should watch and take to heart:
Mark Steyn: You grew up behind the Iron Curtain. And what happened to you over this past Easter, in Canada, is exactly why you didn’t want to stay behind the Iron Curtain. Is that correct?
Pastor Artur Pawlowski: That’s exactly so. I grew up under communist dictatorship, behind the Iron Curtain in Poland, and under the boot of the Soviets. And I’m telling you, that’s no fun at all. It was a disaster. Police officers could break into your house at five in the morning, beat you, torture you, arrest you for no reason.
So, it was like a flashback when those police officers showed up at my church, everything kind of came back to life from my childhood. And the only thing I could do was to fend off the wolves as a shepherd. And I used my voice to get rid of them. They were illegally encroaching on our rights during the most holy days, during the Passover celebration. How dare they. The audacity of those people coming. It was a shocking thing.
I was a little bit shaken. But I did what every shepherd on the planet right now should be doing: Fend off the wolves. We as lions should never bow before the hyenas. And that’s what they are right now.
Mark Steyn: Well, the hyenas are fairly confident in their power. And a lot of the things that have become accepted over the last year – for example, New York police kicking a woman to the ground because she’s not wearing a mask, and governors of American states and Canadian provinces telling you whether you’re allowed to have your Granny or your Aunt over for Christmas or Thanksgiving – that’s the kind of tight, 24/7 control that most communist countries lived under for half a century from the end of the second world war.
Is it all beginning to look worryingly familiar to you, the way people accept it?
Pastor Artur Pawlowski: Yes, it is. I’ve been warning Canadians for the past sixteen years that this is what’s coming. I could smell it. I could see it at every corner. Growing up under a communist dictatorship is disastrous, it’s hell on earth. And I see it already in our western democracy. So, the only way I know how to fight them is like back in 1981, when I witnessed millions of Poles taking to the streets and saying “No more! Get out of our country! Get out! Stop!” Millions of Poles took it to the streets during Solidarity. And they won their freedom.
Right now, if you want your freedom back, you first have to remember that history teaches us that those people will never give up their newly-gained powers. You’ve got to demand those right back. You have to fight for your rights. They’ll never give them back to you freely.
So, how to do it? You get them out of your property. Out of your businesses. Out of your churches. Open up your churches. Clergymen should unite and start pushing this darkness away. And we should come and take to the streets and say “No more lockdowns. No more restrictions. We will not put up with this anymore. We are fighting back.”
My Kind of Pastor
As I stated at the end of my previous article on this brave Christian pastor, “That’s my kind of Pastor.”
Contrast Pastor Pawlowski’s brave words, actions and fighting spirit with those of the “Reverend” Franklin Graham, who has sold out his ministry and his flock to the freedom-robbers, and is now running around to national news outlets like a slavering little government lapdog, somberly telling Christians to bow their heads, be good little sheep, and go take the vaccine because “Jesus would have done so.”
When you compare the two examples, you can see the profound difference in spirit.
Pastor Pawlowski’s spirit is like that of the Lord’s Himself, when he calmly wove that cat-of-nine-tails whip and then boldly walked into the Temple of God and used it to drive the money-changers out, leaving them bleeding, embarrassed and humiliated, which was their just due for their ongoing thievery against the flock of God.
But the “Reverend” Franklin Graham’s simpering spirit is like that of the man who sold-out the good Lord and His disciples the night before the Passover, for thirty pieces of silver – yes, the hireling, Judas Iscariot, whose unhealthy love of money (John 12:6) and willingness to go along with the dark forces of that time in order to get that money, became his undoing.
Look. I’m no man’s judge. The Lord is the one and only judge. I’m simply a tester and discerner of spirits (I John 4:1). And I call ‘em as I see ‘em.
And what I see today is one Christian leader willing to defend the sheep against the growing tyranny and encroaching darkness, and another willing to join the tyrants for a buck, and herd the sheep into compliance with the evil forces now working overtime to destroy the western Christian nations and ultimately take over the world.
Folks, this is where you choose sides. Either God’s side. Or, the tyrant’s side. As Pastor Pawlowski would tell you, there’s no middle ground. Once the tyrants take ground from you, they’ll never give it back. You have to take it back. Boldly and decisively. And you can only do that with the Spirit of Jesus Christ, which you either have, or you don’t. And your choices and actions tell the tale.

I was so encouraged by this pastor. What he said about the police is already here: they do whatever they want. They shot to death our neighbor’s unarmed grandson, beat up and robbed my brother, and sexually assaulted our beautiful daughter during a traffic stop. Our lawyer refused to go against the cops and told me to drop it. So tyranny is HERE.
But I go into stores without a mask and I walk confidently like that pastor does and no one has said a word to me.
I hope more pastors follow this pastor’s lead. We are not safe in this country anymore.
Agree completely on both individuals Steve. Good to “see” you.
I Thank the Lord he brought me to your site today!
