'Bet you stay home now you hypokrits': Miss. church destroyed in suspected arson attack
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves responded to the church fire on Twitter Thursday, saying he was âheartbroken and furious.â
I am heartbroken and furious. In Mississippi, a church was just burned to the ground. They had been trying to open services. There was graffiti on the lot which read âBet you stay home now you hypocrites.â
What is this pandemic doing to us? We need prayer for this country.

Instead, it is because of persistent false accusations by two other people on this forum.
Welcome, No name, to this forum. Several of us have asked about Jim from Lincoln, NE, and the best advice we got back from the moderator is to ignore him. A Brother in Christ from Scotland once properly determined that Jim is really just looking for attention, and will stir up whatever trouble to receive it.
Other forums and social media outlets would have banned him. SA, it their credit, has shown much grace in allowing him to continue apparently for years. Many of us have witnessed to him and prayed for him over the years, some long before I showed up here. Dr. Tim has apparently gotten so annoyed that he is responding as the Lord did when responding to Satan...using only Scripture. SA has upon occasion deleted Jim's posts when he goes too far afield.

Jhn 8:24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you donât believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.â
Jhn 8:47 He who is of God hears Godâs words; therefore you donât hear, because you arenât of God.â
Mike, there certainly are White churches and Black churchesâđ Now, the Pentecostal church mentioned in the article like many Pentecostal churches are an exception to the rule and are more integrated. This is one of the few good things I can say about them, they also have more women preachers. See a history about the movement:
But even White Methodists from my memory sometimes have a problem.

But, Mike, apparently you are going to agree with our Black Evangelical brothers, and - -
This is sad news. Here in Italy, the Catholic church received permission to re-open. We Protestants however, are still waiting for "Grande Fratello" to allow us back in our church buildings. This is just my humble opinion. The lockdown will be made into a loaded gun. Which in turn, will be pointed at the church.
