Grace Community Church Pastor John MacArthur fired back a response to California officials threatening him with jail time for holding in-person services in his church: “Bring it on.”
MacArthur appeared on Fox News on Tuesday night with host Laura Ingraham to discuss his ongoing battle with Los Angeles County officials. The pastor has rebelled against coronavirus-related health directives and wrangled in court with the county since July.
“We received a letter with a threat that we could be fined or I could go to jail for a maximum of six months,” MacArthur told Ingraham. “Of course, my biblical hero apart from the Lord Jesus Christ is the apostle Paul, and when he went into a town, he didn’t ask what the hotel was like, he asked what the jail was like because he knew that’s where he was gonna spend his time. So I don’t mind being a little apostolic if they want to tuck me in a jail.”
