He built a garage, if you will, as a game room, large enough to enable him to hold Bible studies, to worship the Lord as a house church, if you will. And the government descended upon them. Not only did the fire department harass a barbecue outing of 20 folks having a good time per the news, but the local authorities sent the essence of a swat team to cite him for zoning and code violations.
