Pastor Tony Spell of the Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge boasted of having an attendance of more than 1,000 people despite Lousiana Governor John Bel Edwards' emergency order barring large gatherings.
During a time of the unprecedented coronavirus outbreak, Christian church leaders have proven to be at the forefront of hypocrisy and superstition once again, thereby, leading their congregations off into pastures of destruction. Recently, Pastor Tony Spell of the Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge boasted of having an attendance of more than 1,000 people despite Lousiana Governor John Bel Edwards’ emergency order barring large gatherings. While Pastor Tony Spell finds ways to keep his collection plate going, other clergies have taken the same stance of defiance.
In Tampa, Florida, megachurch Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has not only stated that he will keep his church open in spite of the coronavirus pandemic but that he will cure those infected of the virus just like has done previously with ZIka. Another church leader, who claims that the coronavirus is “demonic in origin,” Word of Life Senior Pastor Tom Walters held the services at the church’s Hempfield Township facility.
While many people may feel protected from coronavirus as they “bask in the light of God’s glory,” they should always keep in mind Jesus’ words recorded in Matthew Chapter 7 verses 22-23, where we read:
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
The world awaits as many of these church leaders can only expect to enjoy the fiery realms of hell for their deceit and mishandling of human life.
