(PNP) Grace Community Church Senior Pastor John MacArthur appeared on Tucker Carlson’s top-rated show to discuss his decision to open for service on Sunday and defy California’s church ban by having a packed house.
First of all, and foremost, it’s a first amendment right. This is United States of America and the government can’t intrude in worship….
We stand on that amendment. The second thing that makes this so sensible, is in the state of California there are 40,000,000 people, 8500 of them have died with COVID. That’s 0.002. So in California you have a 99.99% chance to survive COVID, so why would you shut down the entire state, and particularly when people are frightened and sometimes terrified that they’re going to die- shut down the church where most of the intense relationships in our society exist in the life of the church. It’s multi-generational.
