I'd like to prepare you for what is likely to
come, so consider this information a warning and
perhaps a harbinger of things to come. Fascism
starts slowly. It did in Nazi Germany and it has
Christianity is not appreciated by the Left
any longer. They just mocked conservatives and
Christians over guns, faith, and prayer. It started
with the New
York Daily News but
moved on to scolding by many on the Left.
Let's be honest: They are out of control.
For most of them,government has become god. They
wish we would go away and are testing the waters to
come up with ideas that will speed that up. They are
calling good evil (Isaiah 5:20).
They have allies in their back pocket: Google,
YouTube, Bill Gates, Apple, Facebook, and dozens
am now talking from personal experience.
Understanding the Times radio
aired a benign radio program November 28-29. It
featured Tom Doyle of E3
about Christian persecution in the Mideast and
Africa. It also talked about Muslims coming to faith
in Jesus Christ. It was all about "overcoming." And
this violated YouTube's "community guidelines."
But to the Left, "coming to faith" and forgiving
killers are offensive. It is hate speech.
We read the guidelines and nothing was
why were these topics off limits? Keep in mind
that YouTube is the purveyor of a lot of evil,
but they only have issues with righteousness.
But on Saturday, November 28, all of Olive
Tree's YouTubes were shut down due to
"inappropriate content." We had had a warning
or two starting two weeks earlier. But mid-day
on November 28 all the lights were turned off.
After an inquiry by World
Net Daily, the
lights came back on. They were confronted by a
powerhouse and YouTube, owned by Google, said it
was all a mistake, but that would have been 2-3
weeks of mistakes on their part.
In Nazi Germany, Germans in the early 1930s were
promised a return to the "glory days" after the
devastation of WWI. Government then started to
paint a picture of the good life returning, but
only if government could become their god.
The Germans thought that was a great idea. They
hung onto every promise of "hope and change."
They simply had no idea that Hitler's "hope and
change" would cause the swastika to be burned
across the very fabric of Europe. Once it began
to be burned, they looked the other way as the
"good life" was going to return for them -- or
so they thought. Hope and change agents always
There are haunting comparisons in America to
Nazi Germany. It's
easy to get comfortable with government. Human
nature wants to be taken care of. It's easy to let
compromise gradually turn into tyranny and that's a
frog-in-the-kettle phenomenon. It never happens
When the people fear government that is
tyranny. When the government fears the people, that
Censorship for Christians who maintain a
biblical view of marriage, who are pro-life, and who
maintain other biblical worldviews is likely dead
ahead. Do you remember Lois Lerner and the IRS war
on the Tea Party and other conservatives? Isn't it
obvious that religious freedom is under fire?
What about Christianity's claim to be the only
true way to God? Is this hate speech? After the San
Bernardino slaughter, they hung out with radical
Muslims at a Washington D.C. mosque and showed
solidarity with them. But not with Christians --
The history of WW2 is repeating itself. But in
persecution, the church prospers.
Stand firm and let's fight the bullies while
there is time.
