This news story disappointed me greatly. I don't think the Spell's are bad people and in fact people I respect think the world of them. I just think they made a badly misguided judgement. I read one news story saying Tony Spell thinks the whole coronovirus thing is just a political thing and I guess if you are that kind of conspiracy theorist maybe in your own mind you could justify doing what he did.
Search it... he did not say it and even clarified what he said. He believes the virus is real. He just thinks the hysteria is politically motivated. And so do I when they close down a whole country for under 700 deaths.

There is a reason for Bro. Spell did what he did. When I read the article it didn’t seem like a Bro. standing in the face of opposition. I guess call it a hunch, I just feel as if he may of felt he needed to show the organization who he is, political move, maybe? I could be dead wrong, but it doesn’t seem right to me doing what he did.

If Scott and CC are against it, I'm for it.

Re: Tony Spell has church in spite of the ban

Lets look at this from a different angle.

It is fellowship Sunday. People are bringing in food for the lunch. Someone left out the egg salad on the counter and it spoiled.

Pastor Smith says to serve it anyway and if people get sick, he can pray for them.

This is willful neglect.

Pastor Smith gets a phone call from a church family parent. The parent informs pastor that their kids have head lice. Can they come to Sunday School anyway ?

Pastor approves and if the lice is spread to other children, God will provide.

The prudent see danger and take refuge,
but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

Incorrect analogies.

More like:

Sister Suzy calls pastor and says "Some kid might have headlice, should we cancel church?" Pastor Scott Pita says yes, church is cancelled.

If there was a reason I highly doubt it would be trying to show off to the Wpf... he has a well know and respected name already among the WPF.
