Two of Reformed-ish Christendom’s favorite podcasters are now at each other over whether or not Christians should submit to government mandates under any circumstances. James White, an apologist and elder at Apologia Church recently took the position in opposition to Friel and threatened to “cut you down to size.”

White has been an outspoken dissenter on the threat to freedoms in America amid the coronavirus. From lockdowns to sweeping mask and vaccine mandates, White has consistently warned that our freedoms in this country are in jeopardy and will ultimately result in a previously free people being enslaved to tyranny.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

We happen to agree with White on this point, it’s an undeniable, factual observation.

But the question arises; how do Christians respond to this form of tyranny. We do know that the Scriptures call on Christians to submit to government. But to what extent?

Friel took the opposite position as White did, stating that “I believe that if the government tells me to put pinwheels on the side of my head every time I go to Publix, I’m going to put pinwheels on the side of my head.”

Friel’s position is highly unpopular, especially with the Postmillennial pseudo-theonomists. Yet, Friel’s position is also an extreme position that cannot be supported by Scripture. While we hope that this point of contention doesn’t become an issue of division among the saints, it is certainly a doctrinal issue that needs to be worked out in the context of our current paradigm. It should be interesting to watch.
