43 arrested while protesting NYC church ban

Police arrested 43 New York City pastors and lay people on Jan. 12 who were protesting the city's ban on church use of public schools for worship services. The ban is scheduled to go into effect Feb. 12.

The arrests came after more than 200 people gathered in the rain outside a Bronx public school where New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was giving his state of the city address. After singing songs and cheering speeches, protesters walked out in orderly groups of five to eight to kneel in front of barricades and pray. Police warned them to leave and then made arrests on charges of disorderly conduct.

The New York Board of Education has banned religious use of schools on Sunday mornings or at other times the schools are otherwise unused -- even though the churches rent the space, dropping an estimated several million dollars per year into the city cashbox. If the ban prevails, more than 150 ...

Why not allow them to use the buildings? After all, they are just buildings, not God's house which is the faithful hearts of His people.

Good post Michael. It is a plain fact that when the Holy Ghost means a blessing, he generally seems to start with "upsetting", before he concludes with the "blessing". So do be encouraged to continue to believe that the Lord is inspiring you to post what you do, as this means to an end could well result in needy souls being jolted into action (repentance), by the will of God, that a revival in individual hearts and maybe even in the churches, comes about.

I count myself as being in the number of those who are influenced towards godliness by your presence on these threads and by your godly example. So I thank God for you, brother, and am even now praying for you regarding your latest adventure.

In considering this news report, on the surface it is so easy to say NYC is quite wrong to ban churches from renting school properties as a place to meet during non-school hours, and is doing those who have been a serious wrong.

That said are we, the (quote) Bible Believing Commnunity really believing the Bible and living by the word of God?

Or are we (the Community that professes to believe in the Rise Son of God the Lord Jesus Christ) salt that has lost its flavor, and only plays at church and is now good for nothing?

Except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men?

Or even worse have modern day churches become so Laodiceans the Lord Jesus Christ will literally vomit out of His mouth, those who loudly proclaim Him, 'Lord, Lord' refusing any real obedience to Him, especially if it would interfer with having a good time and fun?

Okay, I've probably upset some of you, while others think likely "kindly" things like you're just overly zealous so let me conclude this post with:

Pray however the Spirit leads you for these churches in NYC, the city of NY, your own church, personal life that God would indeed change us and make all of us the genuine salt and light He might use and bless, especially if that means for some getting saved first

well, barak is correct...this is no longer a Christian nation. Let the faithful be more faithful. Ensure the children of the faithful to God the Almighty will see your faithfulness.
