If you’re ever looking for me and can’t find me; it’s probably because I spend a good portion of my time in FACEBOOK JAIL.
For the reader who is not familiar with those terms, here it is in a nutshell:
Facebook places people who speak TRUTH in what we have come to call “Facebook Jail.” You see, TRUTH is the new HATE SPEECH. So if you speak about gay marriage, transgenderism, abortion, etc., Facebook watches your page, and when they feel that you have transgressed their “Community Standards” they put you in an adult TIME OUT. Most of the time this if for about a week but sometimes much longer.
Those in Facebook Jail cannot post anything in groups in which they are not admins or moderators. Facebook wants to keep our Truth Telling to a minimum.
Getting Us Ready for Real Jail
It dawned on me today, that perhaps FB is conditioning us for the near future. What do I mean by that? Isn’t it obvious to the reader that this punishment on social media is a foreshadowing of what is to come in our lives – I mean in our REAL LIVES?
I have a feeling that I will wind up in real jail. After all, Jesus said:
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me” (John 15:18-21).
But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed” (1 Peter 3:14-16)
Veggie Tales Bought by Universal Studios
The founder of Veggie Tales has spoken about LGBT issues and the imminent affect it will have on Christian children’s programme creation.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Phil Visher has opened up about the fact that LGBT will be a subject that writers and creators will not be able to ignore.
Visher, who founded the enormously successful Veggie Tales programmes, told The Christian Post, “Parents are definitely going to have to deal with a growing LGBT presence in children’s media.
“It’s going to show up more and more as the world has decided that LGBT issues are in the same categories as race and civil rights issues. So to say you shouldn’t have a same-sex couple on ‘Sesame Street’ is the equivalent of saying you shouldn’t have a black couple on ‘Sesame Street.’”
The popular children’s cartoons, books and merchandise brand is now owned by DreamWorks, part of the gigantic Comcast company. From 1993 to 2004, VeggieTales videos were produced in Chicago, Illinois. After Big Idea Production fell into bankruptcy in 2003, VeggieTales was purchased by Classic Media in 2004 and production moved to Nashville, Tennessee.
In 2012, DreamWorks Animation purchased Classic Media. When DreamWorks launched production on the Netflix series VeggieTales in the House in 2013, production was split between studios in Nashville, Chicago, and Glendale, California. In 2016, Comcast’s NBCUniversal bought DreamWorks Animation and since then, Universal Studios currently owns the rights to VeggieTales.
Each Veggie Tales episode teaches a moral life lesson through a biblical world view. The lessons include dealing with peer pressure, handling bullies, forgiving others, fighting temptation, handling fear, listening to parents, having self-esteem and being compassionate. It was created by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki, who both perform many of the characters’ voices.
“I think it (LGBT) will have to be addressed at some point; I do think it’s a matter of time,” he continued. “It’s tricky because it’s so divisive.
“I think it would be difficult for a couple of reasons. First: the nuance of how to treat LGBT issues isn’t agreed upon within the Church; and secondly, some parents may want to have that talk with their kids.” source
Brethren, do you see what I see here? The writer of the article above encourages parents to have “a talk” with their kids. But before that, he says this:
“First: the nuance of how to treat LGBT issues isn’t agreed upon within the Church.”
And he is just telling the truth! There was a day when true Christians would not be divided on issues such as homosexuality. But those days are gone.
Maybe, before these parents have a talk with their kids, they should have a long talk with the Lord.
Some may say “Well, the parents who affirm homosexuality can’t be Christians.” That begs the question “Are they truly Christian but are conflicted over this topic?” I don’t know the answer to that.
I think that the “Christians” who are affirming homosexuality are of the Social Justice False gospel pretend Christians. And in that case – I do not believe that they are or were ever born again, blood washed Believers in Jesus Christ.
I know that I believe everything in the Word of God. I don’t make up a narrative and put a spin on Bible verses to fit neatly into that narrative. I believe that the Whole Bible is the infallible Word of God.
Do I believe that we should be kind to homosexuals and transexuals? Of course! Not only should we be kind to them, but we should be praying for them.
But do I believe that the Bible teaches us to affirm sexual sin?
And that is what we are being asked to do. And THAT is why I say that I will probably wind up in jail.
It’s not a pleasant thought, but it will give me new people with whom I can share the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!
