No, unfortunately it is not a joke. Twitter has banned a Christian leader’s account for sharing Bible verses and has censored the posting of worship music.
Twitter and Instagram took another step closer this week to show their contempt for the Christian message. They labeled Christian music by worship leader and songwriter, Sean Feucht, as harmful. They also went on to shut down the account of Bethel Church’s senior leader, Beni Johnson, for sharing Bible verses.
“This account doesn’t exist,” is the message you will see on Twitter when you try to visit Johnson’s profile ‘@prayfor5’, which had more than 32,000 followers.
Johnson’s offending post that drew the ire of Twitter carried the Bible verse Psalm 34:14, which reads, “Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”
Sean wrote, “Not only is big tech blocking worship videos, now they’re blocking Bible verses about PEACE! … Social media needs more peace, more worship, and less censorship of Jesus followers. @prayfor5.”
“While @Facebook, @instagram, @Twitter promote the content of violence, rioting & destruction, they are actively CENSORING worship, prayer, peaceful protest & anything going against their fear-mongering narrative. My feed and many others is proof. #ChangeTheNarrative” Sean Tweeted out.
Sean is a leader in the faith community. He is also an artist and has a worship and missions ministry. One of the things he has been actively doing since the protests in American began, is preaching the Gospel message and bringing unification to all races — black, white, Hispanic, Asian.
Sean learned about the censorship only after some of his followers told him they weren’t able to share or view any of his recent posts.
Sean’s latest Tweet shows that he has joined another platform called Parlor App. Parlor App is known for the followers that have been looking for freedom of speech.
There are so many Christians now waking up to the bias of social media giants, and are growing concerned.
This is one of the reasons why BTJ launched DingDash.com – a social media site for persecuted Christians around the world.
DingDash does not save your information, sell your information, and does not squelch free speech. DingDash is also open in places that other platforms are not – like China, Iran, and Sudan. We are even setting up the capability to allow users to sign up in places that do not have internet (yes, you read that correctly).
Sign on today and join the rebellion.
