Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor
Key Text: Romans 13:1-10
Description: One of the most basic commands of the Christian life is the command to gather together with other believers… But how is this even possible in the midst of a global pandemic where civil authorities have mandated social distancing, gathering-caps, and quarantines?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao makes a mark in our little country church’s 91 year history as he preaches an unprecedented, church-at-home, virtual sermon during an unprecedented time in our nation’s history.
But how are we as Christians are to respond to mandates of isolation during a crisis such as COVID-19?
After all, the whole context of the New Testament is the assembly of the saints. The epistles were written to local bodies, the book of Acts was the preaching of the Gospel and the establishment of local assemblies.
But is there ever a time when the church simply cannot meet? What circumstances would need to take place for such a time to present itself? And how would God want us to meet with Him during this time?
