John MacArthur responded to a pastor’s criticisms of his church’s decision to reopen in defiance of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s second round of lockdown orders, saying his church is “not spreading anything but the Gospel.”

“We are a church that has a reputation for the last 50 years of obeying the government,” MacArthur, senior pastor of Grace Community Church in Los Angeles County, California, said in a Monday interview with Fox News’ Shannon Bream.
