Is it Wrong for Churches to Cancel Services?

We are taking our annual holiday blogging break, and reposting the top 10 blogs for 2020 based on reader views. The one came in at #10 and obviously is still very timely on this day with current COVID situations in many states.


This question raised today reminds me of the old joke about the politician who was asked by a reporter his position on a particular issue.

“Well, there are two ways to look at it,” he responded. Then launched into a lengthy explanation of both views, giving both the pros and cons of the respective positions. He concluded by saying he had friends on both sides of the question.

  1. A pastor prays for and ask God for protection over his assembly everyday! God gives wisdom to the pastor. There have been issues in past where Pastor closed church early or cancelled services. I trust my pastor’s decisions. I didn’t question him then and I don’t question cancellations now about being opened or closed. Then individually you have to decide using wisdom whether to attend in person or by live streaming.

If people would do thier research then they can see that this is not all about health. And please research this vaccine before you decide to take it. Most vaccines today contain ingrediants that are very bad for you!

    Personally I follow the example of the first century saints who continued to meet under threat of death from their Roman masters…Every first day of the week I meet with the saints of God, I partake of my Lord and Master’s communion supper, and I give of my means because my heart tells me that no matter what a human decrees I follow my Lord’s dictates at ALL costs.
