Justice: "Was his defiance just a little too public for y'all?"

On March 22, 2022, the Louisiana Supreme Court on Royal Street in New Orleans held a 930AM session for State of Louisiana vs. Pastor Tony Spell. Among many things, the justices questioned why the State had an issue with Pastor Spell busing people to church, and they dug into the reason for the Governor's relentless criminalization of Pastor Spell. We invite you to watch the full court session below and make your own assessments.


Pastor Spell and the Life Tabernacle Church family were denied entrance into the building because visitors needed to show a vaccine card or wear a mask. Keep in mind that New Orleans lifted the city requirements the Monday before the case. Even more, Pastor Spell walked freely through the building on that Monday. However, on Tuesday, the requirements were put back into place. Despite that and a tire blowout on our MCI Bus, we finally got to hear a fair argument of the critical issue at hand: freedom of religion. Does the governor have unlimited power and control in an "emergency?" Does he have to submit to checks and balances? Do governing authorities freely get to trample our civil and religious freedoms as they deem fit? Are such entities bigger than the constitution of the United States? Do our religious freedom take a back seat when fear tosses the world into a state of emergency?


We thank God for the faithful support and prayers of so many, and we prayerfully await a ruling on the case. We also thank God for Jeff Whittenbrink, Pastor Spell's brilliant and astute lawyer.

I LOVE LOVE what happened in that court room!!! God confused the language of those two "eloquent" lawyers! They simply looked very silly, especially the first man. MANY Kudos to Counsel Whittenbrink, Pastor Spell's lawyer!!! The LORD enabled him to speak words fittingly "like apples of gold in pictures of silver." (Proverbs 25:11) Beautiful!!!

My guests and I prayed for Pastor Spell today at my home We will continue. Do we know who ordered the surveillance cameras? Also, did other religious groups close their Mosques or temples? We didn't see them closed here and no questions were asked. I'm very disappointed that Apostolics were not there enmasse . The city should have been inundated with Christians. Thank you Pastor Spell and those that stood with you. God bless and continue to lead you.
