What would you suggest?

Invite everyone to church unless you have the flu, a cold, tuberculosis, HIV, gonorrhea, and etc. ?

So in other words say to the world - we welcome you to the church - the house of healing - where Jesus saves, fills and heals,... But don't come if you are sick and suffering.

What would you say do?
Old Testament precedent would, to me, suggest that those with contagious diseases be excluded from the general meeting of the church. Perhaps, even some non-contagious conditions.
Yes that is right they did.

How do you think Oral Roberts, Jack Coe, TL Osborn and others handled the contagious disease crowd of their day?

In their advertising they would always say BRING the sick and afflicted

Will have to do a little research on that.

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note

So you have no problem with someone that has an infectious disease, say something on the order of smallpox showing up and mingling in the congregation. You not Oral Robert, Jace Coe or others

The closest one to any of those names that I know of is Rod Parsley. And, he cancelled in-person services at the request (not the demand) of the governor. Parsley said continuing to meet in person during this contagion would not be loving our neighbors.


Matthew 5:19-20 New King James Version
"Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven."

Here is an interesting article on how the early Pentecostals dealt with such things.

Numbers 9:6-14 New King James Version
Now there were certain men who were defiled by a human corpse, so that they could not keep the Passover on that day; and they came before Moses and Aaron that day. And those men said to him, "We became defiled by a human corpse. Why are we kept from presenting the offering of the LORD at its appointed time among the children of Israel?"

And Moses said to them, "Stand still, that I may hear what the LORD will command concerning you."

Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'If anyone of you or your posterity is unclean because of a corpse, or is far away on a journey, he may still keep the LORD's Passover. On the fourteenth day of the second month, at twilight, they may keep it. They shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. They shall leave none of it until morning, nor break one of its bones. According to all the ordinances of the Passover they shall keep it. But the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and ceases to keep the Passover, that same person shall be cut off from among his people, because he did not bring the offering of the LORD at its appointed time; that man shall bear his sin. And if a stranger dwells among you, and would keep the LORD's Passover, he must do so according to the rite of the Passover and according to its ceremony; you shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger and the native of the land.' "
Based on the above idea that there are situations in which celebrating Passover late was permitted in the Old Testament, do you think it would be OK to celebrate Resurrection Sunday late, this year, given the social distancing that is presently being recommended?

Under the NT (as you know) you can keep any day holy unto the Lord.

Romans 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

Good answer.
Thank you.
