Catholic, Lutheran churches to defy Minn. gathering ban by resuming services
The Minnesota Catholic Conference and the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod of Minnesota have publicly declared that they will resume in-person worship services on May 26 despite state restrictions on religious gatherings.

In separate letters sent to Gov. Tim Walz, the ecclesiastical bodies said they will defy a reopening order limiting in-person worship to more than 10 people.

The church bodies plan to follow social distancing guidelines and have a limited capacity for their sanctuaries since they closed them earlier in response to the coronavirus pandemic. ...

Tragically communion is not very important for many evangelical churches, but actually most Free Churches, (basically churches that are not Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran or Anglican), use individual cups for the wine, and bread can be broken in advance. Yet they are still banned from offering communion by the state authorities. Baptism is also banned. Even just gathering together to worship and hear God’s Word preached and taught is banned, and singing is definitely a no no.

Churches must start to stand up. Many, many churches have said they will observe physical distancing, disinfection, instructing vulnerable people to continue with the live-streams,(though not all churches have the ability to livestream), yet even private prayer in a church is banned, yet all sorts of other things of a secular nature are now opening up, and Governor after Governor, and other leftist, globalist authorities are saying “churches must not meet”.

I praise God for the churches that have said, “Enough is enough. We will meet. We will observe safety, but we will meet”.

In the Mass, Catholic and Episcopal at least (unsure about Lutherans), the priest shares the cup with communicants, wiping the rim each time I think. Not good for containing *any* contagious disease.

This is how the state of Indiana is doing it.

I can see why the Romish Church would be anxious to open up. They have a salvation by works theology❗👎

Attendance at Mass is one of the “five precepts of the Catholic Church,” a list of the minimal requirements for heaven. Failure to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligations is a mortal sin, resulting in hell if not properly confessed to a priest.

Discussion:  Mandatory attendance for Catholics at Mass under risk of punishment in hell is an unbiblical fiction that binds the conscience and leads to an attitude of joyless obligation. The repeated sacrifices of what is alleged to be the actual body and blood of Jesus denies the completed “once for all time” sacrifice of Jesus on the cross (Heb. 7:27; 9:12,26,28; 10:10)....

The COVID-19 pandemic is not a hurricane or some other disaster that will come and go, signaling an obvious moment when recovery can begin. It is not like the epidemics of fiction, which get worse until, after some medical breakthrough, they get better. It is messier, patchier, and thus harder to predict, control, or understand. “We’re in that zone that we don’t see movies made about,” says Lindsay Wiley, a professor of public-health law at American University.
