John MacArthur Says Open your Church

In this video, https://video.foxnews.com/v/6199606162001#sp=news-clips, John MacArthur, a popular California pastor, points our that the rate of covid-19 infection in California, at .000015%, is ridiculously low and not a reason to call off church. He said that they have been holding church services as they normally do. His church holds 8,000 on a Sunday and the church has been packed. No one wares masks or social distances. But he reports that for the last 7 months no one has gotten sick from covid. No one!

When asked why the government insists on the lock-down of churches in California, but permits BLM marches and riots, he stated simply that they favor one over the other. And he also insists that the constitution favors religious freedom; and that is why he feels that he is right in allowing his church to continue meeting as usual.

I’m not sure that I would be as bold as MacArthur, but I’m impressed by his stance. I heard him say one time that if the government puts him in jail, he will accept it as God’s will. He said that he always wanted to have a prison ministry.

Breaking News Tidbits from Don Stewart

I just recently got to know Don Stewart. He has written quite a few books, mainly on bible prophecy and current events. I have been listening to his daily Breaking News podcast. It’s quite informative and I thought I would pass a few of his News tidbits on to you. Most of it is not word for word, but is accurate.

Minneapolis crime wave. Minneapolis city council is alarmed by a surg in crime (assaults, robbery, and homicides) months after voting to defund the police. This is news that is close to me. Though I don’t live in the city, I’m not far from the city limits.

Coronavirus made in a lab. A Dr Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, said that Covid-19 was made in a lab in Wuhan, China; and she has evidence to show it. Recently she has been black listed from Twitter. Apparently, many, especially Chinese people, are quite upset with her for spilling the beans.

AG Barr has made a controversial comment. William Barr said recently that the Nation-wide stay-at-home-orders to prevent the spread of Coronavirus have been the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history other than slavery.Don Stewart made a point especially about many churches not being able to meet. John MacArthur has been in the news a lot lately and has been threatened with fines and even jail time. MacArthur jokingly shrugged it off saying that he always wanted to be involved in a prison ministry. Personally, I think John MacArthur is a bold warrior for the Lord, and I usually always trust what he says in his messages.

Oregon protests and riots have backfired. According to recent polls, two-thirds of Oregon voters disapprove of BLM and protests; and Trump has a higher rating in Oregon than their own governor and mayors. It would be so good for Oregon to get some new, republican leaders installed.
