 PRAY: SermonIndex Youtube Channel Deleted without any notice by Youtube

EDIT: Saints, share this news, it is the first large Christian site to report this:

Thousands Of Christian Sermons Deleted By YouTube Without Any Warning - https://hellochristian.com/6160-thousands-of-christian-sermons-deleted-by-youtube-without-any-warning


----



Saints,

This was a shock to hear of a brother report this to me today. We trust the Lord in this. We had over 35 million views on the videos. There were embedded in 10,000's of places on the internet. And we had over 5000 videos uploaded.

https://www.youtube.com/user/sermonindex

This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube's policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.


Please pray that this situation can be remedied somehow, we cannot even access to the videos nor even find the copyright problems or violations.

If there are any brethren who are lawyer type brothers that can help with forms and legal language for this that could be beneficial just to try and ask youtube to understand what has happened and why.

Psalm 113:4 -New International Version (NIV)

The Lord is exalted over all the nations,
his glory above the heavens.



========

EDIT:


We are encouraging saints to report this information to christian news sites and christian advocy websites:



Our entire SermonIndex.net channel was
removed without nofiication a few days ago:
https://www.youtube.com/user/sermonindex

it says on that page: "This account has been terminated due to
multiple or severe
violations of YouTube's policy against spam, deceptive practices, and
misleading content or other Terms of Service violations."

On further investigation, submitting a form to youtube I received the
more vague reply of the reason why the account was deleted. At this
point I have to believe there is religious discrimination possibly
involved and this does not seem normal to have no email warning or
exact reason why the account is deleted.

The Channel was the 34,000 largest on youtube and probably one of the
largest Christian sermon channels with over 34 million views and 5000+
videos with 90,000 subscribers.

the reply from Youtube was:

At this point I cannot but think this could be religious discrimation
and hate speech trigged by an attack from the enemy. We have been getting thousands to pray over this situation.

 Re:

Greg, I just saw this for the first time. I am no cooyright lawyer, but if you email me I will do as much as I can.

Praying that they reinstate. My thought is if they don't, it may be due to thinking of much of it as hate speech, based on the article another poster linked you to.

 Re:

Thanks brother, I got off the phone with a christian lawyer who gave basic advice. It seems unless Youtube responds and gives the reason we cannot know.

My mind goes towards christian persecution, LGBT rights and other possibilities if there is not a clear answer.

This could also be a spam attempt by an enemy of the gospel and therefore could somehow be reconcilled to get the account back up.
