I didn't realize you'd been appointed to speak for the Lord.No, I guess the Christians I know adhere to His Word (like that passage from Hebrews, for example)…whereas statist lefty filters even the authority of the Lord through the state.
And I demonstrated precisely that. You have shown that God’s word is, at best, secondary to that of government. Hereticview…Government-view. Certainly not a correct Christianview.
In the days of Christ would lepers have been welcome in the synagogue?
You claim the government wanted people to abandon church services. That is a lie. The churches could go to televised services and many did. By "assembly" you cannot demonstrate a requirement to be seated in pews with hundreds of others. Many found other ways to worship while the pandemic was a threat.
Were the organized religions being punished? Nope. While it may have been harder for them to make money...their ability to preach was not impacted.
Did you actually think that passage from Hebrews was "GOD'S WORD"? I do not. It was written by Paul....at least that is the rumor.
The Epistle to the Hebrews of the Christian Bible is one of the New Testament books whose canonicity was disputed. Traditionally, Paul the Apostle was thought to be the author. However, since the third century this has been questioned, and the consensus among most modern scholars is that the author is unknown.
