Quite literally, Donald Trump has been more of a friend to Christianity than most Evangelical leaders today. While Evangelicals and Southern Baptists are standing in line to write the next hit piece against John MacArthur for daring to stand against the unconstitutional shutdown orders mandated by Communist California governor, Gavin Newsom, Donald Trump is lending his personal attorney, Jenna Ellis, to represent him.

Ellis represented Donald Trump during the ridiculous 2020 impeachment trials and has been a staunch advocate for churches during the coronavirus crisis.

The Thomas More Society, a “not-for-profit, national public interest law firm dedicated to restoring respect in law for life, family, and religious liberty,” made the announcement Wednesday in response to a cease-and-desist letter Grace Community Church received from Los Angeles county threatening one thousand dollars a day in fines and even arrest,

“The Thomas More Society announces that nationally renowned attorneys Jenna Ellis and Charles LiMandri will represent Pastor John MacArthur and Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, California, as Special Counsel.”

“Grace Community Church, its Elder Board, and Pastor MacArthur have been the target of unconstitutional religious discrimination by the City of Los Angeles and the State of California, amid the state’s order to cease in-person church assembly indefinitely. Grace Community Church and Pastor MacArthur, known worldwide for their ministry and seminary, have enjoyed an impeccable 63-year history of serving the Los Angeles community in person and having a reputation for good citizenship and deference to legitimate state authority.”

The county has already attempted to shut off utilities to the property where the church meets.

In recent days, MacArthur has been chided by Evangelical leaders such as Mark Dever of 9Marks, Gavin Ortlund, a TGC contributor, and SBTS president, Al Mohler, who suggested his church staying open could be “malpractice” on part of his congregation. As the county has threatened MacArthur with fines and even arrest, he complains that none of his Evangelical friends have stood with him in this fight.

MacArthur has, in turn, scolded Southern Baptist president, JD Greear, for closing his church for at least the remainder of this year, stating that he “doesn’t know what a church is” and “doesn’t know how to shepherd” a flock.

It’s amazing that Donald Trump, a man who likely doesn’t truly understand the gospel, is far more friendly to Christianity and understands the importance of worship more than our so-called Evangelical Christian leaders today do.
