As Christians throughout our history, oppression is common, persecution is common, silencing is common, but never a time has it been so widespread.
Millions upon millions of Christians are connecting online from all over the world, and that is a problem according to the actions of tech giants like Facebook and Google.
On YouTube Christian accounts are being suppressed, silenced, and sometimes even taken down for simply reading a piece of literature that every Christian holds dear, The Bible.
The Bible is clear, the Word of God does not condone homosexuality and or transgenderism, however churches near and far are falling victim to the fangs of culture rather than sticking with the Sword that is the Word of Almighty God.
As a result, Christians are hungry for the Word. That said, many who have been betrayed by their congregations are taking to the online sphere that is social media to try and teach the Word in its true form. Upon doing so, tech giants like Facebook and Google are systematically silencing and closing those accounts citing hate speech.
Our culture is backwards, but the Bible reins us back to the Truth, and as the churches turn away from scripture many are turning away from the Churches searching and seeking for answers.
Those who heard the call are leading Christians back to the Truth online, and as a result are amassing thousands upon thousands of followers; the groups who oppose the truth obviously have a problem with that, and again as a result the cultural shift has yet to take root in those who hold on to the Truth.
However, the tech giants are stepping in and siding with culture and thus are banning accounts far and wide, the latest assault by the LGBT crowd is against a well known Christian Elizabeth Johnston, also known as “The Activist Mommy.”
In her case, she posted what the Bible clearly states about homosexuality and as a result has gay activists are petitioning Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg to delete her account, which has nearly one-hundred forty-thousand followers.
“I’ve been banned three times from Facebook for just simply stating what the Bible says about homosexuality and just found out yesterday that a Change.org petition has been started to attempt to petition Mark Zuckerburg to delete my page from Facebook,” Johnston said in an interview with CBN News Thursday.
In one post Johnston argues that the Bible does not condone homosexuality and quoted scriptures from the Old and New Testament to support her claims.
Facebook quickly removed the post and suspended Johnston’s account on three separate occasions while telling Johnston her post did not “follow the Facebook Community Standards.”
“They are muzzling me and my biblical message while Mark Zuckerberg claims that FB is unbiased,” she said in a statement. “The post Facebook deleted included no name-calling, no threats, and no harassment. It was intellectual discussion and commentary on the Bible.”
Facebook apologized and reinstated Johnston’s account after coming under heavy fire from the media.
Johnston claims that Christians in America need to grow a backbone, stop being so timid, and speak up!
“…It’s obvious looking around us that the world has gone mad and right is wrong and wrong is right,” she said.
“Men are now allowed in women’s restrooms and 3,000 babies are killed everyday…”
“Islamic prayers are being taught to children in public schools, while the Christian God and Christian holidays are banned from public schools. And we are in this mess because Christians are not courageous today.”
The Bible does not condone homosexuality, and its time that Christians from across this globe speak up because pretty soon if folks like Zuckerberg and others have their way, we will not have a place to speak online anymore. Meanwhile Christians in the Middle East, and abroad are being persecuted in numbers never seen before. In some cases, for example, the Coptic Christians in Egypt, Christians are being asked to deny their faith and convert to another religion, and upon refusal are being beheaded and killed, all while most Christian Americans are scared to speak out.
Stay tuned for the coming short film; The Christian Reality – due to be released on June 9th, 2017.
