One Church Fights Back against COVID-19 Lockdowns

This article challenges church leaders and Christians to “fear not” (a phrase that is used over and over again in the bible) and for church leaders to push back against church closures over fears of a virus that has a survival rate of 99.8% for healthy people: The author asserts that church as a whole has been too “nice”.

One example of a church that is is pushing back is Harborview Fellowship in Gig Harbor, Washington. Harborview Fellowship is suing Washington State Governor Inslee over the unconstitutionality of placing restrictions on religious gatherings. You can read about the case here:

Donations to help cover legal expenses can be sent to: Harborview Fellowship, 4819 Hunt St NW, Gig Harbor, WA 98335. Please write “support for legal case” on your check.

And for some truthy levity on the restrictions, some of will enjoy (whereas others will be angered!) by this video “A Communist Christmas” by AwakeWithJP. Don’t watch if you don’t want to be offended:
