FEAR OF CORONAVIRUS........California bans Singing during Worship Service



These are difficult times for everyone.  The unseen enemy of the people Corona Virus has triggered another controversy - Forbidding worshippers from singing during a short service.

It is difficult to worship the Lord without praising and worshipping His holy name.  It is very strange because the bible says we should approach Him with thanksgiving and His courts with praises.  But, if the authority considers it necessary to suspend singing for a time in order to prevent people from being infected and dying, we should abide by the law.

California State
The California State department of public health issued a guideline last week forbidding singing during worship services to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.  In the updated policies from the state's department of public health require churches and other houses of worship to "discontinue singing and chanting activities." 

Whereas official guidelines in late May permitted singing, group recitation, and other practices and performances but advised against them, such things are now formally prohibited.

“Activities such as singing and chanting negate the risk reduction achieved through six feet of physical distancing,” the state asserted in its updated guidelines.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says singing and chanting can spread coronavirus just as easily as sneezing or coughing.  The new measure comes amid an uptick in COVID-19 cases in the West coast state.

Indoor restaurant dining, movie theatres, museums and other venues have also been instructed to shut down in 19 counties. 

The new guidelines come as "California's positivity rate – a key indicator of community spread – is trending modestly upward in the 14-day average. Hospitalization rates are also trending upwards in the 14-day average. California has 240,195 confirmed cases to date," the California Department of Public Health announced.


Christians are law-abiding citizens in their respective countries.  Let us pray that the Lord gives us the remedy drug or drugs that will defeat Coronavirus, so that life can return to normal.

Friends, The King is coming.  Jesus Christ is at the door, to rapture the saints and I pray you will be one of them.  If you have not received Jesus as Lord and Saviour, do so now.  Say this simple prayer:

Heavenly Father, I come to You in prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.  I believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose again for my justification.  I confess my sins and ask for forgiveness.  I open my heart to receive Jesus Christ by faith as my Lord and Saviour. I am born again!
