Back on Facebook

Did my views of Facebook change?

First, I want to be clear and transparent, my views of Facebook have not changed.

Second, all the previous statements that I made about Facebook are still true in my opinion.

Third, I have no ill will towards Facebook, in fact I respect them for their accomplishments and free service that they offer.

Why I’m back on Facebook

Some of my friends, supporters and followers were disappointed that I left Facebook. It was brought to my attention that I let personal feelings and interests get in the way of the Greater Good, that is the use of a Free Media for Ministry.

I apologize that I literally abandoned people that looked forward to and needed my input spiritually into their lives. Communication among believers is so very important, especially in these LAST DAYS that we are living in.

My Calling and Purpose has not changed

It goes without saying that obedience is better than sacrifice. I choose therefore to obey the Lord Jesus Christ in His Command to the Church.

Matthew 28:18-20, KJV
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

My Platform for Evangelism

Mount Zion Community Church is no longer confined to just a brick and mortar building but functions also as a VIRTUAL CHURCH ON THE INTERNET. We also operate under the name of Mount Zion Gospel Ministries, a worldwide Evangelism ministry. Evangelism is done through printed material and teaching on Facebook and YouTube.

Salvation of souls is the purpose of this ministry and it is accomplished through, preaching, teaching and Bible Studies.

I invite all that are interested to come along and partner with this ministry as we work together in the Harvest Field of the World.  Let’s save souls, let’s build churches and let’s extend the Kingdom of God.

Why I Left Facebook

The idea of Facebook is great and I think that Mark Zuckerberg is a genius. However, I do not agree with his philosophy, his world view as I understand it. Because he is a liberal in thinking, so goes his philosophy and this is where the problem starts to occur. The problem being censorship.    

Censorship
Mark Zuckberg, has every right to direct the content of Facebook, since it is his company and he does offer a free service. This is wonderful and much appreciated and certainly meets the needs of many people, for this I for one do thank Mr. Zuckerberg.

No Fairness
Facebook, however, no longer meets my need to express my Christian values that are based on the Bible. I believe in fairness and openness in express based on truth. It does seem apparent that Facebook and their algorithm are predisposed to single out Christian and conservative views.

Thought Control
The result of their algorithm is that censorship is achieved against conservative and Christian thought. Censorship by means of their algorithm is used to take our expression away or to limit it by saying that we are not meeting community standards. This I think is pure nonsense and it is in my opinion thought control and brainwashing.

Hateful and Disturbing
Some of the content on Facebook is hateful and disturbing. Groups such as Islamist and certain other Muslim groups, Communists and Abortionists are allowed to express their hateful views on Facebook. These groups openly speak of be-headings and rape. The child brides is not censored, threats against Jews and Christians is nor censored, but if this is criticized by Christians, Christians are told we do not meet community standards.

Bible Truth Censored
Voicing our faith in the Bible and stating that there is only one true God the God of the Bible and all others have a false god we are Censored. It is obvious to me that Muslims, serve a false god and their faith is a false faith.

God is Pro-Israel
The true God of the Bible is pro Israel and He has made many promises to them and our God made many Covenants with Israel and He is a Covenant keeping God.

Facebook Defends Falsehoods
Why am I leaving Facebook, because I for one cannot stand all the nonsense and hatred for truth that is published on Facebook. It seems apparent to me that Facebook is defending falsehoods and lies but denies the truth.

I will continue to read to see and observe what people are posting but I no longer will be posting, reposting or commenting on Facebook anymore.

Tolerance

UK’s most senior Roman Catholic: “Tolerance is being abolished”

Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor

The UK’s most senior Roman Catholic said yesterday that “tolerance is being abolished” as secularists seek to wipe out the Christian faith in Britain, reports Christian Concern for our Nation.

Addressing Leicester’s Anglican Cathedral, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor warned of a rising and “dangerous” intolerance from atheists, telling the congregation that: “In the name of tolerance it seems to me tolerance is being abolished.”

The Cardinal, who retired as Archbishop of Westminster and leader of the Catholic Church in England and Wales three years ago, reminded his listeners that secular values were behind the violence carried out in totalitarian states and many of the 20th century conflicts that killed millions.

And he warned that aggressive secularists were now crushing freedoms in the UK:

“Our danger in Britain today is that so-called western reason claims that it alone has recognised what is right and thus claims a totality that is inimical to freedom,” he said.

“No one is forced to be a Christian. But no one should be forced to live according to the new secular religion as if it alone were definitive and obligatory for all humankind.”

“The propaganda of secularism and its high priests want us to believe that religion is dangerous for our health. It suits them to have no opposition to their vision of a brave new world, the world which they see as somehow governed only by people like themselves.”

Other Issues

The Cardinal also denounced the equality laws that have led to the closure of Catholic adoption agencies, and protested against the treatment of Christians who had been stopped from wearing a cross at work.

He condemned the Government’s plans to introduce same-sex ‘marriage’, noting that opposing such plans was not prejudice against homosexuals, but was “a more subtle issue, namely about democracy and the nature of marriage itself.”

“On what grounds does a minority have the right to change the meaning of a fundamental institution for the majority?” he said.

The Cardinal also challenged the loss of “reverence” for humanity which meant that elderly people are seen as a problem for society, rather than a gift.

Comment

Andrea Minichiello Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, said:

“The Cardinal’s claim that tolerance is being abolished is borne out more clearly with every passing week.

“Only last week, the Law Society attempted to ban a conference we organised to debate the role of marriage in society, claiming it breached its diversity policy.

“Also last week, a Christian blogger was put under an official investigation for showing an advertisement on his site which promoted the current legal definition of marriage.

“More seriously, many Christians have been demoted, penalised and sacked over the last few years simply for wanting to abide by their conscience at work.

“People are now starting to see how secularism and the homosexual rights movement dangerously threaten freedom of belief and freedom of speech.

“However, I am confident that those who support such ideologies will fail in their attempt to remove Christianity from having any influence in the UK.”
