Church disobeys those laws and gathers anyway.
Government forcibly shuts the property down so the law cannot be violated.
Church moves the public gathering to an undisclosed site and continues to break the law.
Government arrests the pastor and offers him release if he just promises to stop breaking the law.
Pastor refuses and stays in jail.
Pastor Tim Stephens is no martyr. He is not being persecuted and neither is the church. This is a staged fight picked by Pastor Stephens to draw attention to Pastor Stephens. The church is so much more than an hour and a half on Sundays. If that is all you have then you have nothing. The worst part perhaps is twofold. This convinces Christians that the entirety of church can be reduced to four worships songs and a sermonette. It also divides the church against the very people who actually need the gospel.
