When Daniel and his friends faced King Nebuchadnezzar’s ultimatum that they fall down and worship the king’s golden idol or be thrown into a blazing furnace, this was their reply:
“O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to give you an answer concerning this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the furnace of blazing fire; and He will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up” (Daniel 3:16-18).
With the recent passage of Bill C-4 in Canada banning “conversion therapy”—defined as “a practice, treatment or service designed to change a person’s sexual orientation to heterosexual”—pastors and Christians now face a similar choice to obey government or God, who is mighty to save all who live in sexual rebellion against His design.
This weekend on The Christian Worldview, Canadian pastor Andrew DeBartolo joins us to describe the situation and to call American pastors to stand in solidarity by preaching on Biblical sexual morality on Sunday, January 16.
