"Be strong and courageous. That is what it is going to take, that is what is going to turn this country, our countries, both of our countries and the Western democracy around: when the people will actually do what they are called to do, to be strong, to be courageous, to be bold," Pawlowski said.
Pawlowski, the Canadian pastor locked up for 51 days over mischief and critical infrastructure charges, said Christian believers are the "sons and daughters of the King of kings and the Lord of lords, the children of the Lion and they have to become like a roaring lion."
He said becoming a roaring lion has brought him trouble, but he is going to continue yapping about freedom and telling people that God wants everyone to know that truth wins in the end.
The Calgary Street Church minister shared that some "hyenas" came to his home to arrest and throw him into prison. (Related: Trudeau's government throws pastor Artur Pawlowski in solitary confinement for violating covid "safety" protocols.)
Pawlowski added that he ended up in solitary confinement in an iron box, as well as in a concrete cell. The Polish-born Canadian said the very thing that brought him into trouble in the first place is always the thing that gets him out of trouble because he was preaching to the inmates and sharing his faith with them.
Inmates were treating him well and they were also yelling what the protesters outside of jail were yelling every day: "Free Pastor Art."
The pastor said believers have to understand that when they are witnessing and watching the giants of the land or the Goliaths of today, they have to have the attitude of David.
Swinick agreed with Pawlowski, saying that believers don't back down because that is not going to get them anywhere. She added that God works through people who are actually doing things.
Pawlowski has over 100 court cases, 340 tickets and 16 arrests. But his crimes involved feeding the homeless, refusing to shut down a soup kitchen, officiating a church service, inciting people to come to church service, participating in a church gathering and supporting the truckers and the Freedom Convoy. In other words, he had been charged for doing the right things.
According to Pawlowski, Jesus Christ was the biggest freedom fighter of all time and that he died on the cross in a most horrible way for everyone's freedom.
"Jesus, God Himself, is the biggest freedom fighter and He is a lot bigger than Trump. Jesus is a lot bigger freedom fighter than all of the politicians, the good ones combined together, because He wants you and me to be free. He wants us to prosper. He wants us to achieve our destiny. He has a destiny for us. And without Him, we cannot achieve that destiny. Without freedom we cannot achieve that destiny," Pawlowski said.
He added that people can learn so much from history and cited the millions of people from Poland who took it to the streets to hold nonviolent civil rights protests, much like what Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. did before, and eventually the Polish people got their freedom back.
"So I say to everyone that loves freedom, to everyone that is a patriot, a God-loving person, a human being that just stands for that concept that we were created equally free, that God wants us to be free, unite even if you don't agree with everything," Pawlowski said.
