Despite the court’s ruling, Pastor John MacArthur told Fox News’s Shannon Bream that the church would still be meeting.
Los Angeles County’s order that Grace Community Church vacate a parking lot they leased is clearly linked to the ongoing legal battle over COVID-19 restrictions.
“We do not need the state’s permission to serve and worship our Lord as He has commanded,” elders of Grace Community Church said.
Grace Community Church has been embroiled in litigation since they first defied Gov. Newsom’s orders to cease indoor gatherings in early July.
A California judge denied a church’s request to block Gov. Newsom’s orders prohibiting “all indoor worship services, including home Bible studies and fellowship.”
Christians say, with the apostle Paul, that for us to live is Christ, and to die is gain — yet at the very thought of death, so many of our churches slammed our doors shut and are keeping them closed. What does that say about our faith?
‘We cannot and will not acquiesce to a government-imposed moratorium on our weekly congregational worship,’ MacArthur and the church’s elder board said in a statement.
Pastor John MacArthur says we can’t reopen church because Christians aren’t being ‘persecuted’ by health orders. But what about God’s commands for us?
