Crisis: Hundreds of Christians gather for worship event, many without masks
Hundreds of Christians met up at Mill Creek Park on Saturday for a Let Us Worship Event. Kansas City marks the 45th stop for the event.
While COVID-19 cases continue to rise, many who attended the event were not wearing a mask.
âPeople can wear a mask if they want to,â said Feucht. âThey can social distance if theyâre not in the same family. They have all of those opportunities and thatâs why weâre meeting in a big park like this.â

Youâll have to make up your mind, Jim. Are you and former doctor Fauci talking about general coronaviruses, or Covid-19? Oh by the way, the death rate is continuing to drop. Disappointing I know, but you canât have everything.

The area includes a number of battleground states that will play an important role in next week's US presidential election....

Jim, nurses wearing masks while on duty in the hospital still caught the Spanish flu. Historical fact. Easily verified for curious readers. Dentists wearing modern day masks show immunity to that years current flu indicating the masks didn't prevent all particles from escaping. Fact. Easily verified for curious readers.

Call it what you want. It's still disobedience, and if you disobey God's ordained government you might as well be disobeying God.
1)Prove they're not lying. Logical fallacy. 2)Strawman. Logical fallacy. 3)Interesting. Your actions make one question this statement. You keep going on about chinas numbers and using them as an example, contradicting. 4)Masks and social distancing are not law. 5)See my previous comments for examples straight from the Bible, inspired stories for the Holy Spirit. Guess God was wrong??? Utter nonsense.
Watcher: If the sick would isolate and take care of themselves, then we wouldn't have such a problem..... Look at Wuhan. They went overboard and welded people into their homes. This seemed horrible when we first watched it, but look at the numbers....Maybe we need respect for authority and do the right thing "
1: As pointed out by Mike that is not what we are doing when we force all to wear mask and social distance. You are taking a guilty until proven innocent view which is backwards and illogical not to mention unloving of your neighbor.
2) Um, welding people in their homes is always bad regardless of numbers.
3) Respecting authority is not the same as blindly obeying every command. Historical and biblical cases offered as an example: disobeying authority by hiding Jews, disobeying authority and lowering Paul out a window, disobeying authority and helping slaves escape, disobeying authority and not killing babies, etc. You'll be hard pressed to find scripture to back up blind submission and obedience to an ungodly government but all this will be ignores because it's easy to do what we're told and not go against the majority. Mob rules.
'Members of the public could be putting themselves more at risk from contracting coronavirus by wearing face masks, one of Englandâs most senior doctors has warned. Jenny Harries, deputy chief medical officer, said the masks could âactually trap the virusâ and cause the person wearing it to breathe it in".- from https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/coronavirus-news-face-masks-increase-risk-infection-doctor-jenny-harries-a9396811.html?fbclid=IwAR1wNsUJjOHNLso2X4xzPWcCrjbn1dXZ8aPS9uX6W7eMJlKd0aVfRUxnSBs
then there's this.... 'A Centers for Disease Control report released in September shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them.
A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 âcase-patients,â who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from health care facilities who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite âalwaysâ wearing a mask." from https://thefederalist.com/2020/10/12/cdc-study-finds-overwhelming-majority-of-people-getting-coronavirus-wore-masks/

How many times have I heard from people that thought COVID was a scam and when they got infected they had wished they listened?
I would suggest the goal is to reach 10,000,000 cases of covid in the US a few days before the election. Talking points are all that is left, and a nice round number like that makes a good emotion-stimulating talking point. We will not hear anything of the continuing drop in the death rate, nor anything of recoveries. That wouldnât be useful.
When the state assumes authority over a healthy life and forces injury or death upon someone - for the "greater good," - it's called democracy. You were conditioned on 'majority rule.' But it's not biblical.
I wear masks and wash hands where it matters to another person. I exercise my liberty for the weaker brother.Thats biblical.
The state knows no restraints, only that it has the power or not. Because it serves another master, a healthy person as God created becomes a bio hazard.
I am for protecting your health. What you don't get is that the other end of your mask mandate will be a cost borne by someone, I am for them also.
My word, if I had a quarter for every time I have heard an American shouting about the constitution, freedoms, and rights, I would be a millionaire right now. Enough with the apple pie and picket fence mentality. The conditioning has done its job. No matter what is said here or anywhere else for that matter, it will never change your minds. Have fun with the virus, perhaps it's coming for YOU!

The Foundation of American constitution is the recognition of a creator. And the right to life & liberty, an inalienable right from God.
At the other end of your mask mandate, the state must assume that authority.
Masks or vaccines, when the state takes away liberty or injures a life for the benefit of another, it's called stealing even murder in the bible. Apart from USA, no other country has a problem with that.
Those who give state the power over life when it benefits them, cannot understand when the state exercises power over the life in a womb when the woman wants to claim her benefits
Watcher wrote: I am erring on the side of caution. Do you understand now? I take the numbers in China and other countries as an indicator that something is going on. Therefore, because something is going on, I will take precautions to protect myself and my family until the world is a safer place.
I personally have no issue with you wanting to protect your family and using caution. Nor do not think that there is any doubt that there is "something going on."
My point of even saying something is that your post seemed to trust in the accuracy of the information from China regarding "what is going on" as opposed to the sources which refute them. So yes, you have made it clear and I do understand that you trust information given by the Chinese government over people who have lived and operated under their regime. Otherwise you would not make statements like "There's a reason why a population of 300 million has far more cases than a population of over 1 billion."
But then you confuse the matter more by saying "I don't trust any government to tell me the truth." Seems your contradicting yourself to me.
