I agree completely with your comment. I think Trump is an immoral buffoon, but he is my president. I voted for him and will vote for him again. He is hated so much by the left that I am also surprised no attempts were made on his life.
Lord, save and protect the president that you have given us. In Jesus' name and for His sake I pray, amen.
If I was shopping in WalMart and people were holding a church service that was disrupting to me, I would complain. And since our country is pluralistic, what would stop a Muslim gathering with their loudspeakers or some satanist group from doing the same thing. The freedom to worship is a wonderful thing, but like anything else it can be used in ways not designed by God.
It sounds like one wrong was used as an excuse to commit another wrong. The authorities should have left their corporate worship alone and the church should have stayed away from Walmart. The church could have met in a place that wouldnât have been disruptive to others like in an empty parking lot or in a field.
No, some church pastors are not confused but greedy

Jesus Would Not Be a Republican
We can say with equal certainty that Jesus would not be a card-carrying member of the Republican Party. The Grand Old Party may share many values that can be traced back to the Bible, but it is still the GOP, not the GOD party. Because the party is run by corrupt man, a perfect and Holy God would never lend His credibility to that or any other earthly organization.
The Republican Party has been branded by the Democrats to be the âparty of greed.â This label is not stamped without a degree of legitimacy. Man is a greedy being in his fallen state. Politicians within both major parties use the love of money to step on the backs of those they are supposed to serve. There are few innocent of power-grabbing for riches within the American political process.
When it gets down to the bare facts, the only advantage the Republican Party offers is that it is the lesser of two evils....[not anymore it isn't âđ] ....

Nebraska Senator Sasse did compliment Trump on his stance on China in the above article. I have even complimented Trump on that and his support of Israel. But just because he gets a few things right, it still is a bleak overall picture. âđ

Christians donât have to âforce the kingdom on others,â Jiminy. Jesus will do that Himself when He â...cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.â You might want to get on the right side of the transaction, Jim. âBlessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.â Donât you know that â...The Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,Â In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his powerâ? Do you really prefer the kingdom of Satan to the kingdom of Christ?
FYI wrote: Good Morning James, No, your guess is based upon what you think I am saying, that I'm not. I wasn't looking for proof texts on plagues? Holding an historacist interpretation of prophetic scripture, I was looking at the time line of history. I believe the 6th trumpet (civil judgments on usurpers) and 6th vial (judgments upon false churches) is now effecting the eastern section of the former R. Empire, places visited in Paul's missionary journey's there. But that is why you ended your sentence with a ? isn't it? On the Lord's day the topic's under my consideration began in Ezekiel 9 and Isa 6 but the application was relative to 1 Co 11:3,10 as I was trying to understand what the LORD was showing me in answer to prayer. The loss of the visible church Ephes 4:1-13 is the real judgment in the west, but that started long before the "virus". I post here because of loneliness and a want of fellowship but not unlike other matters of choice it the best of 2 evils. Evil is not a choice for a Christian. There are many precepts violated. Forgive my lack of modesty as the weaker vessel.
Good morning FYI, Thanks for the clarification and for the exchange. I encourage you to keep posting. Always good to hear a fresh voice on the forum.
Jim, you are not listening. The Coronavirus is not a problem for the church. We need heed immunity, and the governor is abusing his position. The church needs to speak out against such obvious attacks on religious liberty.
Reminds me of the catacombs when Christians were persecuted by Nero and other wicked leaders. Where thereâs a will, thereâs a way. No one has gotten sick so far at our church. We have to go to the doctors (8 for my husband ). Had to go recently and strict guidelines are practiced including, everyone has to wear a mask. A young man checked in not wearing a mask,holding the one that was given to him. Used the hand sanitizer on the wall and sat down a few feet from me. I asked why he wasnât wearing a mask to protect others, yet used sanitizer to protect himself. Gave excuse, they do no good and finally said in anger, it was his life and body and he could do whatever he wanted concerning himself. No arrests were made, no fine. Wasnât long another one came mask half covering his face. Where can you hide, I hide under the wings of God and His feathers cover me there. Keep me as the apple of your eye;hide me in the shadow of your wings,v.9 from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me. Psa 17
I watched a video of John MacArthur announcing hisâpeaceful protestâ, (by the way, apparently, protests, including those that are not peaceful and even rioutous are permitted and even encouraged by the local state Governor!!).
John MacArthur then introduced a police chaplain in full uniform of the LAPD, who read scriptures and prayed. Sadly the video cut off there!!! Praise the Lord for this church and others like it. I have a feeling that certain contributors to this forum, would like to see, compulsory mask wearing everywhere inside and outside, followed by compulsory vaccinations, (no exemptions for either), and the churches to be completely closed indefinitely. No, that is not the way. We need the churches open more than ever.
From what I can recall, in the 1960âs and 1970âs, British evangelicals had this attitude, that evangelicals, apart perhaps from voting, should have nothing to do with opposing immoral laws; etc.that basically meant there was no opposition to these liberal laws. The Abortion Act of 1967 here in Britain was, I believe sneaked through a half empty House of Commons, when most MPs had left to go to their constituencies for the weekend. It was a fait accompli. The major evangelical voice was deafeningly silent, and we are still suffering from the results of this today.
