The state of California has been coming down hard on churches prohibiting all indoor worship services – including home Bible studies. Orders have also been given banning “singing” (or “chanting”) in church. More recently, the Governor ordered certain counties that had returned to worship services to again close down. One organization has filed for legal relief for a church they represent.
Mat Staver (Liberty Counsel) represents Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry against California’s Governor Gavin Newsom. Is this Governor treating the church like a puppet, while at the same time encouraging bands of protestors? How can you sanction protests, but close churches? Staver will tell us the story and the progression thus far. Another church impacted is Grace Community Church (John MacArthur, pastor). They have now defied the Governor’s order – releasing the statement, “Christ, not Caesar, Is Head of the Church.” Does Staver believe this move will encourage others to do the same?
CROSSTALK will visit much more, including recent supreme court opinions (from a very divided court) and gather Staver’s comments regarding them. Buckle your seatbelt! (please listen and share)
