I believe California Assembly Bill 2943 will silence the church in California

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:
Contact: Assembly Member Ed Chau
Email (most effective): ronak.daylami@asm.ca.gov or fax to (916) 319-3222.
Phone: (916) 319-2049
Also contact the Republican Consultant at jared.yoshiki@asm.ca.gov
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!

      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.

    If an exchange of money is the problem. Then do it for free

    • mariomurilloministries

      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.

  8. Hugh "Sam" Samson

    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.
    Halleluiah !!!!!!!

  9. maria amarillas

    We will defeat this bill (enemy)!! Warriors lets start the intersession now. We declare victory in the name of Jesus we are taking back the land for Christ! What once look dead He will bring back to life.. We need to rise up!!

  10. David Larson

    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.

  11. Pamela

    We declare victory ! I declare the church is rising up in the name of JESUS !!!
