They should be afraid of him now…
A cease-and-desist letter was issued to the Grace Community Church, so Pastor John MacArthur has called for two prominent attorneys in order to protect him and the church.
Governor Gavin Newsom, had recently ordered churches to shut down, however, Grace Community Church released a statement saying, “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. Therefore we cannot and will not acquiesce to a government-imposed moratorium on our weekly congregational worship or other regular corporate gathers. Compliance would be disobedience to our Lord’s clear commands.”
MacArthur has hired Jenna Ellis and Charles LiMandri to protect him if the city of Los Angeles actually carries out the threats in the cease-and-desist order.
Ellis stated, “Pastor MacArthur and Grace Community Church are not disobeying the Constitution; it is California’s Governor Gavin Newsom and Mayor Eric Garcetti that are defying their constitutional obligation to protect religious freedom and church assembly.”
“Church is essential, and the government has no power to arbitrate whether religious organizations are essential. This is not about health and safety, it is about targeting churches.”
It’s refreshing seeing someone pushing back against power hunger Democrats. Newsom has called for a lockdown in California, however Mayor Garcetti is allowing protesting to occur as well as having certain business to stay open. They are picking and choosing what stays open.
