As societal fear and unrest increased, Christians were forced to grapple with how God wanted them to respond to these state-imposed restrictions. After all, didn't the closure of churches pose a serious threat in a time when people needed spiritual direction more than ever? God vs. Government follows two churches' courageous decisions to reopen despite orders to remain closed."--
