Officials Threaten MacArthur with Arrest for Holding Worship Services

With “his friends” nowhere to be found, the octogenarian pastor-theologian who has garnered the respect of millions throughout his long pastorate is now faced with possible arrest for holding worship services inside his California church house.

According to one mainstream Christian news outlet, “County officials have allegedly threatened Grace Community Church in California with fines and possible arrest for reopening his church in defiance of lockdown orders from Gov. Gavin Newsom during the pandemic.”

Citing the reporting of Franklin Graham, “he received a letter from Los Angeles county government officials threatening repercussions such as fines and even possible arrest.”

The Religion News Service, which happens to be heavily funded by grants from the far-left, reported, “[The Environmental Health Division] is investigating and will be reaching out to the church leaders to let them know they need to comply with the Health Officer Order.”
