Pastor John MacArthur told Fox News' Laura Ingraham on Tuesday that he is not worried about warnings passed down to him threatening up to six months in jail if he continues holding indoor worship services at his Grace Community Church.

MacArthur referenced the time the Apostle Paul spent in jail during his ministry, and said, "If they want to tuck me into jail, I'm open for a jail ministry. I've done a lot of other ministries and haven't had the opportunity to do that one, so, bring it on."

"We received a letter with a threat that we could be fined or I could go to jail for a maximum of six months. Of course, my biblical hero, apart form the Lord Jesus Christ, is the Apostle Paul. And when he went into a town, he didn't ask what the hotel was like, he asked what the jail was like, because he knew that's where he was going to spend his time ... If they want to tuck me into jail, I'm open for a jail ministry. I've done a lot of other ministries and haven't had the opportunity to do that one, so, bring it on."
