Christian leaders sue Government over closure of churches during lockdown
Some 25 church leaders are suing the Government over the forced closure of churches during lockdown.

The Government announced last week that churches could re-open for services on 4 July, having already been allowed to open for private prayer for several weeks.

However, a coalition of church leaders says the announcement does not go far enough and that churches should never have been closed in the first place.

The group, who said the blanket closure of churches was unnecessary, is asking the High Court to protect the ancient liberties of the Church as guaranteed in Magna Carta. ...

The above is a perfect example of the mindset Christ's church should have. We should always obey God when we see a conflict between the church and anything in society.

Even today there are places in the world where worshipping results in death or imprisonment. I often ponder the saints in Hebrews 11.

Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

Maybe this is the case. Where sadly are the solid Reformed and Evangelical pastors who seem to lack the spirit of the Puritans and Covenanters who worshipped, even when it was forbidden by the government of the day, even though it meant imprisonment and sometimes even execution.

Another large evangelical church in an East Midlands city, which I attended when I lived there not only closed down, but did not even do any downloads or live-streaming, and only has devotionals, and old sermons going up to the lockdown in March on its website. (Unfortunately, it is not even a member of SA, so it’s sermons are not listed here). All work by this church totally ceased, though as as far as I am aware, it is still formulated. Unfortunately the dear elderly pastor of this church had previously retired, and it seems though it is quite a large church, and well attended, they just keeled over. Now, sadly, this city has just fallen victim to a “second spike” of Covid 19, and a local lockdown has now been reimposed there.

I wonder if the charismatic pastors have got prosperity on their mind, like when they extract some money from guv coffers through the courts.

It is a great shame when church closures happened in late March that church leaders had not been more vocal then.

This action by some African charismatic pastors and one or two Anglican evangelical ministers (including a retired bishop), has come rather too late. The silence over church closures has been deafening. I am not even sure if my own church is going to open up yet. The restrictions are fairly severe, although I understand as at the beginning, some church leaders are going further than even the government.

For example, technically there is no number restrictions, except that people must space out for “social” distancing, yet churches have imposed number restrictions.

Again, though recommended, unlike on public transport, where masks are mandatory, they are not mandatory in churches, but church leaders have pushed compulsory mask wearing in church.

What is forbidden apparently is singing. It appears that communion is severely restricted, and in some cases banned, and baptisms are out of the question. Singing, communion and baptism are core activities of a church, and yet these have been all been more or less outlawed.

Not since the 17th and early 18th centuries has a government in Britain told Christians how they may or may not worship, even during plague
