By Mario Murillo. I realize this is a post from March it is reposted because this bill passed the Assembly but goes before the CA Senate this Thursday. (Please see important update at this link https://wp.me/p1vrzp-5za
This is no exaggeration. It is not the overreaction of an overly emotional preacher. I challenge you to come up with a different conclusion than I have to this proposed law. Here is what the law will do:
CA/AB 2943 will prohibit resources concerning treatment or ministry in order to reduce or eliminate same sex attraction or gender dysphoria. Essentially, conferences, counseling, teaching, books, or publications, where money is exchanged for the resource, would be prohibited.
No exchange of money can be allowed for a book that suggests recovery from same sex attraction or gender dysphoria? No conference can do so either? Oh wait, the Bible does that. And oh, yeah a Bible Conference will do that.
This is no slippery slope. This is the cliff.
This frontal assault on the Christian faith is a giant step toward outlawing Gospel preaching as hate speech. What will stop them from removing tax exemptions? What will stop them from removing the right to assemble? What will stop them from shutting down any group that doesn’t fall in line with their gender values?
Share this with every believer you know who lives in California!
If you live in California act now. Here’s what to do:
How did California get to where it could consider such an attack on the bill of rights? For one thing, deep depravity has settled into the California State Assembly. But like it or not, the other thing was the apathy and ambivalence of Pastors and believers alike. That must be a wake up call to us all.
It is hard to believe that we are seeing the attempt to pass a law to persecute Christians. But it is worse than that: California’s madness could end up punishing Christians across America. If AB2943 becomes law, it will embolden the forces in other states, who hold to these same radical views where you live, to create similar laws. IT IS TIME TO PRAY AND OBEY.
some one said he was about to do something in northern Cal. sound’s like there about to put a stop on the church to me.
Spiritual apathy is the best description for what is happening to us as a church. It is time to wake up. A Radical Church must arise in radical California!
only wish I could post this on facebook
I just did! You hold down on the picture with the red slash circle ? over the cross and copy it. When you paste it into FB it will show this page. Go for it! You can do it too!
You can. Just look for the share button, and FB is right there. I just shared it
Amen. John..couple of years ago, i cried out to God about the condition of the church in general..He replied quickly and cleary; He said my Church is a Sleeping Giant that needs to Wake Up, Find it’s Voice and Become the Head and no Longer the Tail..He also showed me a few major ramifications of the church not being awake; Abortion, Perverted Sexual Revolution, Overcrowded Prisons, Our Nation in a Nose Dive..But he also showed me the Antidote to all of this..2 Chronicles 7:14.if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. . amen.
Lord Jesus give the Christian community wisdom and revelation to fight this bill intellectually and stop it from being past. This bill is prejudicial and offensive to my believes.. we are born this way it is called Sin and we can overcome the nature’s of the flesh which movitate man to hurt themselves and others.
It is first understanding that no judge or law has any right to take away the knowledge of Christ salvation redemption so as others can make a freewill choice based on the value of being presented the truth about redemption salvation which empower each believer with a Holy Spirit anointing to conquer the evil within themselves and others.

I’ve posted this on FB. Everyone needs to be able to make their voices heard on this matter! Let’s push back the darkness and preserve our freedom of religion in CA!
Just copy the leading graphic with the ? over the cross. Paste it in on FB and the link and graphic will appear. Let’s Do this thing! ??
And don’t forget to contact our representatives as noted at the end of this blog! ?
If an exchange of money is the problem. Then do it for free
We already do it for free. Problem is, if this wins, then after this they won’t even let us do it for free.
This is concerning CA/AB 2943
I am a registered voter in the state of California. Today is the first I have heard of this Bill. That is very concerning to me that such an important issue would be brought before an Assembly without proper public notice. As it stands now, I believe we should not allow this Bill to pass. This action that infringes on the Constitution concerning the right to assemble, the right to practice religion of choice, and freedom of speech, among others is unacceptable. The public was not properly informed about it.
Don’t pass this Bill!
My wife and I reacted to this five years ago. We moved to Nevada!
We will be praying for you, Mario.
I spoke to Travis Allen running for GOV. of Ca. He says he’s on board and did vote against this. Mr. Cox did not answer my question to him. I will continue to fight here in CA , until I will be a neighbor to you all. But remember they have changed Co, NM, parts of tx, Minn, and az and Fl the red states are becoming more blue liberal. If we lose Ca, we will have to take a stronger stand then we have . I will email you from jail 🙂
We must keep our eyes on the God who gives us the victory. Who calls the shots. Just like Pilot had no power over Jesus (Jn. 19)… except it was given him from above, so no one can have power over the church except it’s give them from above. Pray !!!!!!! Our God has our backs either way.
By the way I did contact Ed Chau, to do all in his power to stop ab2943 from going anywhere.
we cast our cares to our Lord.
Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. Psalms 127
Most churches today are not churches at all, they have a form of godliness but deny the power they will will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that! 2nd Timothy 3:5)
It’s no Small Wonder why they will be shut down. God will draw all people who are ungodly into one place just as he did in Moses time, and in one day 3,000 were slain. And in the book of Acts, in one day 3000 were saved.
If the church is shut down in California the people will splinter and form smaller groups, which I think is an act of God in itself. Then people will begin to realize they must get serious or get out. And you hide and watch if you don’t believe me. The time of weeding has begun weeding the chaff from the Harvest. And they overcame by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. What is your testimony? Are you in or are you out? In my own life, I have had to do some deep soul-searching to find what is not of love. The god kind of love is what I’m referring to. If you don’t have a deep yearning for people around you and do not see them through the eyes of God, there’s something dreadfully wrong.
If you be risen with Christ seek things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God set your affections on things above not on things on the earth for you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God.
This Is Steven James

Moving to Nevada is not the answer. Standen flight! Moving from about is the answer go to the heart of the beast and kill it.
We declare victory ! I declare the church is rising up in the name of JESUS !!!
