Trump-loving megachurch begs followers to pack into the pews amid coronavirus outbreak: 'If we die - we die for Christ' - 2020-03-16
A South Florida megachurch pastor wants his congregation to know even though the coronavirus continues to spread, they should be coming to church to worship anyway, and any fear they might have of packed spaces is coming from a "demonic spirit."
"Do you believe God would bring his people to his house to be contagious with the virus? Of course not," pastor Guillermo Maldonado said, according to the Miami Herald. But as the Herald points out, Maldonado's service wasn't as packed as it usually is.
"This service is usually packed. So now they're home in a cave afraid of the virus, that you want to transmit the virus," Maldonado lamented. "If we die, we die for Christ. If we live, we live for Christ, so what do you lose?"
