Op-Ed: We Dig this Anti-Church-Lockdown Apparel

Founded by brothers Justin and Jesse Gruber, both of who serve as elders in their church, Carpe Fide was formed during the pandemic while watching as the world was radically changing around them. Realizing that the world was scared, Christians were faltering, and leaders were abandoning their call, they decided to open up a shop to help the cause and spread the word.

The company routinely posts on their social media support for persecuted Canadian pastors like Pastor like James Coates, Jacob Spenst, Tim Stephens, and Jacob Reaume, all of whom have had their churches shut down and some which have gone to jail for the cause.

Depending on what shirt is purchased, they give 10% of their purchase directly to help and support that church.

We are particularly partial to the “Come and Take it” shirt modeled by Pastor James Coates, who reaps a portion of the proceeds if purchased.

Though originally only shipping within the USA, they recently partnered with Wool & Flax to make that particular shirt available in Canada.

Disclaimer. This is not a sponsored post. We have no financial ties or interest whatsoever in these two shops, and in fact, hadn’t heard about them until a few hours ago. We cannot vouch for their service or quality of goods- we just think they’re super cool.


Bringing you discernment news and commentary from a biblical, polemical perspective means it is tough out there on social media. We’re constantly getting kneecapped and constrained by tech companies who find our fidelity to the scripture and pursuit of truth to be intolerable, resulting in our reach being severely throttled.

For this reason, we ask you please consider supporting us a few different ways. The first, by liking and following our new Facebook page, our home where we share new posts and interact with our members. The second, by following and retweeting our Twitter page. The third, by signing up for our newsletter below.

And last, through direct support. You can catch our free weekly episodes of the Polemics Report by subscribing at BTWN.

  1. Spencer Smith (you can find him on YouTube) has had a great Come and Take It shirt for about half a year or so now. Some of the designs that people have been coming up with are just fantastic.
