The United States President, Donald Trump has stated that online church isn’t the same as attending church in the flesh, as he hopes people can go back to corporate worship before Easter Sunday.
In an on Tuesday, the president said while he has enjoyed attending church online amid the coronavirus pandemic, his administration is working toward a very optimistic deadline so people can start fellowshipping physically again.
“Look: Easter’s a very special day for me. And I see it sort of in that timeline that I’m thinking about. And I say, ‘Wouldn’t it be great to have all the churches full?,'” he said, noting how church services have been restricted by social distancing orders.
“You know, the churches aren’t allowed, essentially, to have much of a congregation there. I watched on Sunday online and it was terrific, by the way. But online is never gonna be like being there. So I think Easter Sunday and you’ll have packed churches all over our country. I think it would be a beautiful time, and it’s just about the timeline that I think is right,” he said.
