NYC mayor may close churches, synagogues that don’t comply

| PentecostalTheology.com

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned Friday that the city could shut down certain places of worship if people continued to violate the state’s stay-at-home mandates and continue congregating for religious services there.

“A small number of religious communities, specific churches and specific synagogues are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance even though it’s so widespread,” de Blasio, a Democrat, said at a news conference on the coronavirus outbreak.

City officials have continued to work rigorously to control the spread of COVID-19 as cases climbed over 1,000 on Sunday despite statewide closures of schools and non-essential businesses.

“I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” he added.

The warnings came just week before Easter, on April 12.

      Troy Day True, hard to reach out in person now. But these measures ate temporary. Meanwhile, we use prayer, social media and whatever opportunities that we do get.

      Troy Day You are being so negative. Believers have been praying, and I am expecting the church to arise like never before, with many new leaders raised up with a heart for God and without mixed or selfish agendas, and s new Wave if Charismatic Renewal to hit the churches in all denominations, empowering them for the work of equipping saints to bring in the harvest.

    THIS from Neil Steven Lawrence No the Spirit of Islam – a demon otherwise known as Allah, is in agreement with the religion of liberalism (as Ann Coulter calls it in her book – Godless). So they will not just receive a free pass but a promotion.

    Just like In Kenya they instituted a law about 10 years ago that if you want to have an open air Gospel meeting and you’re going to make noise you must pay $22 and fill out a form for one week.

    But the Muslims blast their demonic releasing sound system over the whole town five times a day and I am sure they are not paying their weekly $22 fee for the permission of releasing demons on the town! You might think: how can you a nice Christian boy say such terrible things about the Muslims? Try being woken up at 5:30 AM every morning by something that sounds like a demon – because it is! It’ll change your entire theology…

    If they wake me up I start binding the demons in that mosque and releasing the Holy Spirit upon them to witness Jesus… Until I fall back to sleep

    TODD is cutting them NO slack Neil Steven Lawrence did you see where DeBlasio busted synagogues but approved mosques for Ramadan? Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) blasted the mayor:

    “Would DeBlasio have sent this identical tweet with the word ‘Jewish’ replaced by any other religious minority? If not, why not? Laws should be enforced neutrally w/o targeting religious faith. #ProtectFreeExercise,” he tweeted. https://www.toddstarnes.com/values/nyc-mayor-demands-jews-stop-congregating-orders-police-to-break-up-rabbis-funeral/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=social-pug&fbclid=IwAR1DF_UbtO_TkHyYQM88ft3Aqk4pNWlPwK0FM6tUi6IshZwQHa0Me_JBxC4
