APN Applauds President Trump: Governors Must Do the Right Thing and Reopen Churches

President Donald Trump called for churches and other houses of worship to open over Memorial Day Weekend, and branded them as “essential.” He ordered governors across the nation to reopen churches and said he would override those who would not comply. American Pastors Network President, Sam Rohrer said today, “The President is to be complimented on his decision to declare all churches to be open and that the governors who remain restrictive will have to deal with him. Churches are essential to the well-being of our nation and our people.“Neither the governors nor any person in state or federal government has the Constitutional right to order any church to close or decide how they should order or arrange their worship or manner of service. For governors to single out churches and order their form of worship is for them to declare themselves above the Constitution and God. It is religious discrimination and a violation of their Constitutional oath.” Following Trump’s announcement on Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidelines for communities of faith on how to safely reopen.

    The Sabbath Day of the OT, had its function and it was an all day affair (Isaiah 58). We see and are called to live peacable lives and respect all authority IF it is of God. Most of the time it is if we are really discerning. So, houses of worship should be open all day on Sunday. Rather than have 1 or 2 services, why not have multiple services every other hour or so and still maintain social distancing? Society will respect the church much more.

    If the truth was to be known, the churches are to be open each and everyday. God is a 24/7 God. The early church met daily, not just one day per week. We are quick to execute the Great Commission, but we are not doing so good at meeting daily.
