Another COVID Small Business Casualty: The American Christian Church

All across the U.S. small businesses are failing because they closed down during the COVID-19 situation. In some sectors, such as the restaurant industry, it is estimated that more than 50% of these small businesses will never re-open. Today I am going to write about one of the largest groups of small businesses that have also been hit hard by closing down during this "crisis" - the American Christian Church. American churches today are businesses, mostly non-profit small businesses. Hence, they are corporations setup just like other American businesses, requiring licenses and subject to the laws of the U.S. and their respective states. As we have seen recently, the government authorities can shut them down farily easily. The true body of Christ, however, is not a 501c3 non-profit church business. It is a living organism of believers not dependent on any business, and the leader is Jesus who rules from Heaven and empowers his people with supernatural power. This organism is not so easily defeated, if they function together as a body.
