The governor of Maryland is making a church in Baltimore Maryland out to be an example.
It’s amazing that the police, in any county can catch pastors doing exactly what the directive, not law, says, regarding corona-virus, but they can’t catch criminals.
It’s amazing that people in government can control people but they don’t want God to control them.
It’s amazing that government can’t control a disease but they seek to control God and His servants. They want gun control, but they don’t want God’s control. So corona-virus puts them all on lockdown, or “time out.”
The disease is controlling them whether they like it or not.
Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they’re doing.
Now, it’s clear that shutting down the church ought to be the last thing people want to do. Thousands of people are dying in the world, and in his own state, hundreds are dying. It’s commendable that steps are taken to ensure no more infections take place, but if you put out a directive and the pastor is abiding by the letter of the directive, there shouldn’t be a problem.
But when you deliberately send resources to an area where resources are needed elsewhere, where they could do more good, it’s clear that the governor’s management skills are in question.
The pastor didn’t defy the governor. He abided by the recommendations to slow the spread of the disease.
It’s left up to a pastor’s judgment to hold services but to send police to break up a constitutionally protected service, is a travesty. It’s clear that since they will not let a crisis go to waste, should things return to some semblance of normalcy, the world (meaning “fellow” Americans that aren’t true believers of Christ) is slowing removing constitutionally protected services.
Besides, if you were God fearing, wouldn’t you want as many houses of worship open for prayer to entreat the Lord to have mercy and spare people?
Or would people want the opposite.
For God’s hand of protection to remain lifted as the virus spreads, and kill thousands more?
