Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints show little faith in their God, ask members to wear masks

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has become the first church at least know to the public to officially mandate its members to wear a mask in church or else they won't attend.

With a membership of 17 million people worldwide the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said in a statement that it's trying to encourage its members to be safe in church. 

In the released statement the church urged its members to get vaccinated so that they can be safe in church and push the Lord's work forward.

The just shall live by faith

The latest mandate was not well received by many tele-evangelicals who have long been advocating for more personal choice. Some evangelicals like Pastor Chris of Christ embassy have found biblical justifications for their opposition to vaccination citing bible verses like "The just shall live by faith".

While some liberal pastors have not taken extreme positions they have questioned the spiritual ratio of banning people from coming to church if they are not vaccinated.
