It's something that I realize many people wouldn't care about. But, I do.
What is it?
It has to do with the problem I'm having on Facebook (FB).
As I've mentioned in the past, FB has been blocking me for a week, about every 2nd week, since the end of September.
Being blocked means that I am not able to share my blog entries for Life with Lynnie (LwL), on groups I've created, groups I am an administrator for, or any of the other groups I am a member of. Even though each group is a Christian group, and I am a Christian writer.
For a long time, I didn't have any idea why that was happening.
Then, as I mentioned previously, I saw and shared articles letting everyone know that the German government has created a law that they told FB about. You see, FB can be sued if they allow any postings that the German government doesn't like to see.
How could this affect me? At first, I didn't have any idea.
Later, after finding out that many, many other Christian FB friends were being treated the same way, I realized that FB must feel that Christianity is not acceptable. Other than saying we love Jesus, which seems okay.
Then, a Christian FB friend who I've known for many years, shared a posting on my FB wall/timeline. It was shocking, also!
I am sharing the article with you. It's by cbc.ca and is entitled, Federal government blocking social media users, deleting posts: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/twitter-facebook-socialmedia-porn-1.4394127.
If you read the article, you'll know what I'm sharing with you (I copied/pasted):
Canadian government departments have quietly blocked nearly 22,000 Facebook and Twitter users, with Global Affairs Canada accounting for nearly 20,000 of the blocked accounts, CBC News has learned.
Moreover, nearly 1,500 posts — a combination of official messages and comments from readers — have been deleted from various government social media accounts since January 2016.
However, there could be even more blocked accounts and deleted posts. In answer to questions tabled by Opposition MPs in the House of Commons, several departments said they don't keep track of how often they block users or delete posts.
It is not known how many of the affected people are Canadian.
It's also not known how many posts were deleted or users were blocked prior to the arrival of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government.
- Twitter to disclose info on political ads amid scrutiny
- Canada Revenue Agency monitoring Facebook, Twitter posts of some Canadians
Believe me when I say that on FB... my postings have never been deleted. I've only been prevented/blocked from being able to share postings, as I mentioned, previously.
Even so, some FB friends had told me that some of their postings had been deleted. So, they must have been deleted by our Canadian government.
This just confirms to me that there are people in our Canadian government who also hate Christians. Much like what we see happens in USA.
Are you shocked I said that?
Well, please don't be. Just click on this link to see a video on YouTube entitled, BREAKING: BERNIE SANDERS LASHES OUT ON CHRISTIAN WHEN HE REFUSES TO DENY FAITH TO CONGRESS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2n_5F873JU.
Hopefully, you clicked on that link, and watched the entire video. If you did, you'll know that I am again speaking truth, regarding Christians being hated.
Christians being hated, are actually suffering persecution. But, it's okay.
Just as we read, in Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven!
That means that we can know for sure that even though some of us Christians are being hated and being persecuted, we are being treated that way, because we truly belong to God, who we will someday be with in the kingdom of Heaven.
Being hurt isn't easy.
But, God is good.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
