Churches and Government Need to Fully Open Up for Worship and Business

If you are afraid to worship God in Church due to a fake coronavirus then you are not a true believer in Jesus Christ. “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7 [ESV]). “We must obey God rather than any human authority” (Acts 5:29). Open-Up!!

The characterization in the righteousness of God is by God’s grace, justified by faith, an inner transformation, and reinforced by baptism in the confirmed belief, by Jesus Christ’s Holy Spirit, and in faith that one is born again[1].

The righteousness of God implies having the right relationship with God through his faith, promises, trust, his gracious favor, Divine faithfulness, believes in the gospels, and supports faith by past, present, and future history of God[2].

Real obedience to God is through the faith of reconciliation with God by his gift realized in sanctification, holiness, righteousness, in trusting God through Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit (Rom. 5:1-10; 6:22: 8:4)[3].

Righteousness means having faith that God is in charge, which requires obedience without questing God’s actions or decisions (Rom. 9:18-20), faith that he is faithful to a remnant of the Jewish people for salvation, and that conversion will come through baptism by those in faith who believe in Christ’s death and resurrection (Rom. 11:1-6; 11:26)[4].

The righteousness of God means that no human government can interfere with the teachings of Jesus Christ or in the worshiping of God, which is supported by the Apostle Peter who said, “We must obey God rather than any human authority” (Acts 5:29)[5].

God Bless!
