Sometimes you just have to wonder what goes through the mind of a bureaucrat. You would think that nanny-state do-gooders would want to … do good. You would think that they would like other people to … do good. But you would think wrong.

New York City officials have ordered 22 New York churches to stop providing beds to homeless people. It seems they have a city “rule” that says if you’re going to provide beds for the homeless, you have to do it at least five days a week – or not at all. Incredible.

I firmly believe that the day is coming to the US of A when living as a Christian will be illegal, and we will have to choose between following Jesus or obeying the government. Has that day arrived in New York City? How are these churches going to respond? Are they going to bow down to the power of government and close their doors, or are they going to invite in the homeless anyhow and say to the bureaucrats, as Peter and John did, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge.” (Acts 4:19)
