John MacArthur challenges Leftist Tyrants; State promises crackdown
Conservative Pastor John MacArthur puts the Peoples Republic of California on notice: Christ is head of the church and not Caesar.
Johnson says, State & Local leaders plan to cut power to the church
Compare Leftist love for riots, casinos and Black Lives Matter to how they persecute Christs Church.
In a powerful statement Pastor John MacArthur of Grace To You put the State of California on notice: Christians will not bow to oppression.
MacArthur argued for sphere sovereignty. He said that God ordained various types of authority like the family, the church and the state. Each is granted unique power from God and should defend its sphere of interest from intrusion by the others.
This is very good. It recognizes government has limited authority. This is critical in time like this where the very future of limited government is at stake. MacArthurs statement will fuel a renewed Christian interest in defending both church and individual rights from government intrusion.
MacArthur does another important service by asserting our rights preceded the creation of the state. Thus, rights are not granted by the State or the Constitution. Thus, our rights are not resting on the good will of the state or even our Constitution, but rather God and Gods created order.
I have a few minor quibbles with MacArthur on political theologybut that is for another time. Now we must stand shoulder-to-shoulder with MacArthur, the elders and the people of Grace Community Church.
More at link above!!
But just peachy to allow riots. Here we go..
Where is this church?
That’s what the candles and stained-glass windows are for!
You don’t need an organ when you have acapella and Gregorian chants.
Anyone got some generators to tie in?
Maybe the state should make all the church attendees wear a yellow star to mark them as church-attenders.
Northern Los Angeles county, John MacArthur is the pastor of Grace community Church. One of the largest evangelical churches in the country.
Wherever two or more of you are gathered in my name the State of California has forbidden it.
There are some battles you are better off not fighting. The state is big and powerful and can use force to get its way.
But what is it going to look like?
The state using all its force against members of a church while ignoring rioting mobs burning down buildings?
California has become a one party state and the watchdog media has become their lapdog. We may be observing the beginning of the end of the Democrat control of the state.
The gates of Hell shall not prevail!
Sick Marxist Newsom.
Good job, Pastor! I know who wins this battle.
I wish other prominent, nationally known pastors had the courage to speak out on the issues of our day.
Especially African Americans who should be calling out the scourge that is black lives matter every day.
and yet unlimited anarchy in the streets is being actively encouraged in Democrat-run cities: religion illegal; street anarchy good ...
Then we’ll fight them ON ICE!
The judge ordered that they be allowed to open.
As important as the 2nd Amendment is it can easily be argued that the 1st Amendment...freedom of religion and freedom of peaceful assembly...is at least as important,and maybe even more important,than the 2nd Amendment.
There's gotta be a judge somewhere in Kalifornia...state or Federal...who doesn't hold the US Constitution in total contempt as so many Rat and RINO politicians do.
You can have an organ, but you just need a hearty calcant or two to manually (pedally?) work the bellows. Bach woulda done it.
Recall Them All.
