Pastor Jack Hibbs hosts “Freedom Sunday” with Tony Perkins

CHINO HILLS— Family Research Council President Tony Perkins will join Pastor Jack Hibbs in hosting Freedom Sunday, an in-person church service at Calvary Chapel Chino at 5 p.m. (Sunday, Oct. 11) that will be live streamed to churches and homes across the country.

“The Church is more than essential. It’s time to choose faith over fear. It’s time to honor God over man. It’s time for a Court that will honor and uphold our First Freedom. It’s time for Freedom Sunday,” says Tony Perkins of Family Research Council.

“Freedom Sunday is a call for the resumption of in-person church services in obedience to Scripture (Hebrews 10:25) and a freedom guaranteed by the Constitution.  Across the nation, many state and local government officials continue to take unconstitutional steps to restrict worship services even as they’ve allowed the reopening of casinos, tattoo parlors, abortion centers, liquor stores, and most all other businesses.

“Christians may be tempted to fear the consequences of meeting, whether of Covid-19 or government penalties. Churches can and should use proper health and safety measures in their services, both as a matter of prudence and out of love for one another. But Christians should not act out of fear. Jesus Christ himself commanded, ‘do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell’ (Matthew 10:28). And so, we must stand up and say with the Apostle Peter, ‘We must obey God rather than men” (Acts 4:29).  The time is now,” concluded Perkins.

Freedom Sunday will feature many pastors who have challenged the overreach of government authorities.  The 90-minute event will feature a variety of speakers including Pastor Garry Leist, Pastor Che Ahn, Pastor Rob McCoy, Pastor Cristian Ionescu, Pastor Brian Hermsmeier, Pastor Amado Huizar, Dr. John MacArthur, Dr. Albert Mohler, Eric Metaxas, FRC Executive Vice President General Jerry Boykin, Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.), FRC Senior Fellow Ken Blackwell, Larry Taunton, Dr. Carol Swain, Virginia Prodan, FRC Senior Fellow and Executive Director of the Human Coalition Action Dean Nelson, and Dr. Wayne Grudem.

Way to cherry pick some verses pastor! Actually the Bible says we should obey authority.

Romans 13:2

Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.

So Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach, Abednego, Peter, Paul, and countless martyrs throughout the ages were what?

But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men. Acts 5:28

Will everyone please stop using the Holy Bible to justify their own personal political views? The Bible says to love thy neighbor as thyself. Can we all please try that rather than devolving into disingenuous politicos?
