Power Belongs to the People—and the People Must Take It Back

Special Invitation for Pastors!

Three 1-Hour Online Sessions

At each of our respective ministries, we’ve been receiving constant reports about parents strained and stressed over providing the best educational experience for their children. In God’s providence, disruption is presenting opportunities to deepen every student’s connection to a vibrant and Christ-centered education. This new normal is a reset for millions of parents.

To help you as a pastor meet the needs of your families in your congregation and answer this call, we’re cooperating with BJU Press – the largest producer of Biblical Worldview K-12 Christian textbooks, Dr. George Barna, our friends at Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and others to provide 3, 1-hour, virtual sessions to help you as a pastor understand how BJU Press can help you to immediately provide Christian instruction in your church location and can connect families to the best help for homeschool or hybrid (home and school) or church location experiences.  

George Barna, perhaps the most respected and best known Christian public opinion researcher in America, will kick off this 3 day3 hour conference with both the need of the culture and the current opportunity of pastors to meet our needs in the context of an exclusive snapshot of this educational moment in our national life.   

We’re making this event FREE of charge to you and a member of your leadership team so please mark your calendar!

Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your church families in this way.

Date: Sept. 16-18, 2020
Time: 11:00 am EST / 8:00 am PST
How: 1 hour virtual sessions each day

We Must Hold Unlawful Officials Accountable

PASTORS: We Must Hold Unlawful Officials Accountable

 

Pastors Should Impart to Church Members Basic Biblical Teaching That Civil Authority Is Limited

Authorities Who Rebel against God’s Law Undermine Their Right to Wield Power; Will Pastors Let Them Anyway?

Officials keen to enforce coronavirus-related mandates imposed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf have issued another spate of citations to businesses allegedly in violation, drawing criticism from faith leaders who point out Wolf’s rules were never approved by state lawmakers, which the constitution requires.
 
And when officials flout the limitations of their offices, it’s up to citizens — led by their pastors — to hold them accountable, according to Pastor Sam Rohrer, a nine-term former state representative and the president of the American Pastors Network (APN, http://www.americanpastorsnetwork.net).

“When Executive Branch officials demand changes in the lives of their citizens which affect their duty to God or violate their constitutional guarantees of freedom, these same officials are guilty of violating their oaths of office and the constitutional Separation of Powers, and usurp the authority of the Legislature.” Rohrer said. “Pastors should guide and lead citizens in identifying these violations of moral and civil authority and seek to hold  these officials accountable to the Constitution and to the Bible, both of which make plain that all authorities are subject to God and are obligated to use their power with fidelity. In the United States, this starts with obeying constitutional limits on each branch of government.

American Pastors Network: Pastors Should Impart to Church Members Basic Biblical Teaching That Civil Authority Is Limited

Officials keen to enforce coronavirus-related mandates imposed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf have issued another spate of citations to businesses allegedly in violation, drawing criticism from faith leaders who point out Wolf’s rules were never approved by state lawmakers, which the constitution requires.

When officials flout the limitations of their offices, it’s up to citizens — led by their pastors — to hold them accountable, according to Pastor Sam Rohrer, a nine-term former state representative and the president of the American Pastors Network.

“When Executive Branch officials demand changes in the lives of their citizens which affect their duty to God or violate their constitutional guarantees of freedom, these same officials are guilty of violating their oaths of office and the constitutional Separation of Powers, and usurp the authority of the Legislature.” Rohrer said. “Pastors should guide and lead citizens in identifying these violations of moral and civil authority and seek to hold  these officials accountable to the Constitution and to the Bible, both of which make plain that all authorities are subject to God and are obligated to use their power with fidelity. In the United States, this starts with obeying constitutional limits for each branch of government.

“Many Christians assume that the Bible commands people to yield blindly to authorities or to follow every command of every person in office, but this is not true.” Rohrer continued. “America’s pastors must lead their flocks to properly understand the principles of basic authority, which demand ordered submission insofar as they uphold the Revealed Law of God, which is then reflected — in our nation — in our state and federal Constitutions.

“Christians need to grasp from the apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans in the New Testament that authorities who rebel against God’s authority undermine the basis of their own authority,” Rohrer concluded.

Rohrer says the preservation of religious liberty hinges on whether America’s pastors will speak up and stand up against unlawful actions imposed on them — in disobedience to the highest civil laws of man and highest moral laws of God.

“The law is the law. Just law starts, of necessity, with objective truth — God’s moral Truth, and in our nation the precepts of the State and Federal Constitutions as our highest civil truth,” Rohrer said. “When either body of truth is ignored or redefined, both the moral and civil law are violated. It is then the citizen’s duty led by others in authority — in either civil government or the pulpit — to biblically and constitutionally resist that law or order and to seek a re-calibration to the truth and law. We as pastors, teachers and defenders of the truth, are urging that our legislators and all people begin asking the right first questions: ‘What is the law?’ And ‘What is the authority behind the civil order or directive?’ ” 

 

Pastors: Basic Questions about Authority

Pastors Must Lead in Pandemic Response by Asking Most Basic Questions about Authority and Law, Separation of Powers, Says American Pastors Network

Rohrer: ‘Only Lawmakers Have the Authority To Make Laws. Our Middle Schoolers Know This —But Do Their Parents? Do Their Pastors?’

As states experiencing increases in the number of patients testing positive for coronavirus, reprisals of mandates arising out of limited duration and questionable executive branch ‘emergency powers’ threaten to become the new normal. Although pockets of Americans continue to dispute the sweeping regulatory powers that non-legislative bodies are wielding, many are blindly yielding to these unlawful demands. Others are asking if resistance is possible or how it should be done.

Pastor and statesman Sam Rohrer says that’s because they’re asking the wrong question.

“The question each human being should start with precedes questions about the efficacy, consistency with medical science and basic truth regarding face masks, church and business closures or social distancing — although asking substantive questions about these policies will certainly illuminate whether mandating those measures is even justifiable.” Rohrer said.

PASTORS: Denounce Government Overreach Now To Preserve Freedom Tomorrow

Note to Fellow Pastors:
Denounce Government Overreach Now To Preserve Freedom Tomorrow

Pulpit Complacency Threatens Religious Liberty

Leading conservative Christian voices are calling on Americans to recognize and resist the overreach of elected officials who oppress God-given and constitutionally protected rights by imposing restrictions on businesses, schools, homes and even churches.
 
American Pastors Network (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.net) President Sam Rohrer invited fellow pastor and author Matthew J. Trewhella, author of “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate,” onto the “Stand in the Gap Today” radio show to sound an alarm and to inspire pastors and parishioners to resist tyranny God’s way.
 
Interviewing Trewhella, Rohrer identified complacent citizens as one of the greatest accomplices of totalitarian dictatorship.
 
“You know, the greatest allies of tyranny are citizens, pastors and government officials who refuse to confront lawlessness and aggressive immorality in a Biblical and historical way,” Rohrer explained.

“We’ll either define the problem of tyranny and resist it God’s way and therefore defend freedom, or we’ll embrace tyranny by choosing to work the system to our own selfish advantage.”

As states continue to roll back pandemic-induced restrictions, efforts to impeach Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf (D) regarding his use of power during the crisis have escalated. Rep. Daryl Metcalf (R-Butler County) introduced legislation bearing five articles of impeachment that allege unlawful unilateral action by Wolf.

The controversy is a prime opportunity for all parties and members of government to reacquaint themselves with bedrock constitutional principles, according to American Pastors Network President Sam Rohrer…
