John MacArthur’s Church Defies Judge, Says Outdoor Restrictions Would ‘Shut the Church Down.’
This is shaping up to be quite a battle and every believer in America needs to pray for Pastor John MacArthur and the wonderful people of Grace Community Church as they spearhead the fight for the First Amendment for all churches in America.
The devil would love to shut down every church in America and as this church goes, so will your church.
Satan Using COVID
To Close The Church in America
Satan continues to prompt the state to weaponize COVID to harass believers and to shut down the church.
Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, California on Sunday defied a judge’s order not to meet indoors during the pandemic, with pastor John MacArthur telling attendees that the state’s restrictions for legal outdoor services would make it “impossible” to follow and result in the congregation shutting down.
The church met indoors multiple times Sunday, three days after California state Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff issued an injunction against such services and upheld Los Angeles County’s health restrictions on large gatherings.
Beckloff said the county’s order allows worship to occur outdoors, although MacArthur – during Sunday’s 10:30 a.m. service – said the various restrictions on outdoor worship are impractical.
The California Department of Public Health released a 14-page document July 29 outlining requirements and recommendations for churches to legally meet. Los Angeles County issued its own requirements and recommendations in July that churches in the county must follow.
Please pray for Pastor John MacArthur and Grace Community Church as they spearhead this battle for all churches in America.
