Hallelujah!

There is something I want to let you know about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

Here is a link for the article by lawenforcementtoday.com that is entitled, Attorney General: Government cannot shut down churcheshttps://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/attorney-general-government-cannot-shut-down-churches/?fbclid=IwAR38xmtDKumRQ6tFLXhskuOpIVpmwz5FfatxTHy4rkUNVnQP7PFTPXO4gtk.

I hope you clicked on the link and read that article, even though it was posted a while ago..  Here is some stated (I copied/pasted):

Churches have been making the news a lot lately. With most states enacting some variation of a ‘stay at home’ order, many places had deemed places of worship as non-essential activity.
Churches have been ordered to close. Pastors have been arrested. Attendees have been threatened with mandatory quarantine after going to a services. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened to shut down churches permanently.  
This is the spot where I pause to say that I believe common sense has to prevail. It makes no sense to sit in a room with hundreds of other people in the midst of this pandemic. That being said, I also believe that pandemic or none, our Constitutional rights are iron-clad and non-negotiable. 
And here is the part where I insert a name and tell a story. 
That name is Attorney General William Barr. The story, according to The Hill, is that Barr said:
“…that the government ‘may not impose special restrictions’ on religious gatherings as churches across the country raise eyebrows with large in-person ceremonies conducted against the advice of health officials. 
Barr emphasized recommendations from federal health officials that people practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings, noting that ‘the Constitution does allow some temporary restriction on our liberties that would not be tolerated in normal circumstances.’
‘But even in times of emergency, when reasonable and temporary restrictions are placed on rights, the First Amendment and federal statutory law prohibit discrimination against religious institutions and religious believers,’ Barr said in a statement.
Wow!

It was awful that it was done wrong, by hurting people who wanted to go to worship at church.

After all, Christian believers DO want to worship with church family!

Thinking about that, made me think about Colossians 3:25, "But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.".

Amen!  But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.

Yes, God will deal with anyone who wants to hurt those who belong to Him.

However, God will also bless William Barr... for what he did to help believers.

Hallelujah!

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
