SPOTLIGHT: Pastor Cassell Discusses His Lawsuit Against Gov. Pritzker

Written by David E. Smith

Give me your young, your old, your faithful masses yearning to worship freely. This revision of The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus could well be the rallying cry of Pastor Steve Cassell of The Beloved Church in Lena, Illinois. On this edition of Spotlight, Pastor Steve joins me for a timely discussion regarding the perilous intersection of COVID-19, governmental “authority,” and Constitutionally-guaranteed personal liberties.

Pastor Steve and I consider how churches and people of faith should respond to Illinois’ lockdown and examine the dangerous precedent that could be established by our governor’s abuse of his executive power. We also detail some of the horrific consequences of the lock-down, as well as the incredible opportunities for the Church to be an instrument of God’s healing and restoration in the midst of the pandemic.

Please listen and share!
