    Church ok everywhere but Marion Co.?

    I don't get it, does the mayor actually have legislative authority?

    Iíd love to see our churches stand up and dare them to do something about it.

    But from what Iím seeing at mine, the congregation is so afraid of the virus, theyíre willingly obliging/obliged our governorís edicts.

    I have used this article a few times within our church. A little long for today's sound bite mindset, but worth the read.

    It's really hard to read scripture without viewing it through our own lenses.

    We in America have a history of defying authority when it conflicts with personal liberty. Which in some ways, makes following Christ hard.


    In these times, with limited alternatives, there's lots of online bible study groups, so many church sermons on YouTube, plenty of time to read the Bible.
    Being a good Christian isn't determined by church attendance. Make no mistake - I long to be back with my church family in the same (large and spread out) room. But this situation really is temporary.


    So, I urge you all brothers (and sisters), examine yourself - is you motive to meet again in a large group to be more Christ-like, or is to show that you're strong and cannot be controlled?

    If it's truly the former, then pitter-patter, let's get at 'er.
    Our church reopens on the 24th, with double the number of services, and I'll be hiding in the sound booth as usual.

    And Monroe county. They're claiming authority from IC 16-20-1 et seq, and 16-41-9 et seq.

    Chronologically I think that comes after the flying monkeys. I think it goes plague virus, murder honets then flying moneys and the next horseman....I could be wrong everything is just a theory at this point

    Very good question. I needed to hear it and contemplate it. Everyone spouting about it should consider this. It is a powerful reminder of why I follow Him, and it has to do with a freedom that only Christ can grant, and it cannot be taken away by man or government.
