Some GOOD NEWS for a change! Part of the article is down below along with the video I made earlier today. God bless and know that you’re NOT ALONE!
Churches in California are refusing to implement Gov. Gavin Newsom’s lockdown orders because of the ‘health concerns’ of COVID-19.
Two churches, the Grace Community Church in a Los Angeles suburb, and Calvary Church Chino Hills have defied orders to keep their doors closed.
Pastor John MacArthur responded to the Governors orders by posting a letter on Friday titled, “Christ, Not Caesar, Is Head of the Church.”
MacArthur laid out his “biblical case for the church’s duty to remain open.”
The letter reads, in part:
Christ is Lord of all. He is the one true head of the church (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). He is also King of kings—sovereign over every earthly authority (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; 19:16). Grace Community Church has always stood immovably on those biblical principles.
As His people, we are subject to His will and commands as revealed in Scripture. Therefore we cannot and will not acquiesce to a government-imposed moratorium on our weekly congregational worship or other regular corporate gatherings. Compliance would be disobedience to our Lord’s clear commands.
