 Censorship of Christians

With Alex Jones being taken of YouTube, Facebook and other sites , are we ready for Christian censorship
Even thou I disagree with Alex Jones entirely it does not stop Christian websites being wiped out entirely by things like isps or China with there firewall.

As it would really not take much for Christian website and things to be taken down.

As there is a multitude of options to get around such things such as using different platforms

Coming from a computer science background myself

What would happen if say the government decided to turn of the internet connection entirely , are we ready ? Such as what happened in Egypt

 Re: Censorship of Christians

Dear brother,

Yes censorship is definitely happening, even on Facebook we have 20k people who follow and like our page but our posts barely reach anyone. Many people have complained about this though they even "follow" our page they say they never see our posts though we are active.

As you know our youtube channel was deleted last year for no reason or explanation, and through the advocacy and prayers of God's people they restored it by a miracle! https://www.christianpost.com/news/youtube-briefly-terminated-christian-account-with-over-5600-sermon-videos-174092/

We now have 130,000 subscribers and over 43 million views on youtube

 Re:

I doubt this is censorship. Facebook is a business first and foremost. They want you to pay for clicks.

There is an option for them to see all posts first. I do that on a number of pages important to me and I do in fact see all their posts first and on top of my feed.

We had our YouTube channel deleted a few years back amd ot was restored a day later because a guy knew a guy. People from all walks are having theirs deleted and restored all the time. Nothing miraculous about it.

 Re:

It would always be smart to prepare for censorship releasing on different platforms.
If they have deleted your YouTube platform once it means that they can do it again.

Wouldn't it be smart to think of alternatives as we tend to take things for granted whilst we have them but we do not know how long we will have the freedom

I think it was one site they went after there ISP provider and asked that they delete the actual website.
In China I think they got rid of bible sells and started deleting Christian podcasts.

With technology such as Blockchain it is possible to make websites secure with

And alternatives to YouTube such as bitchute
https://www.bitchute.com/
And using a mesh network incase the internet connection is down

I know that you host a mirror site, I just imagine a world as the bible says where Christians cant buy or sell using money so how do we prepare for accessing sermons and bible resources in a world where Christians are censored , this cannot be a pipe dream .

It would be smart to build a practical framework

Say if apple , Google and others decided they don't like Christians considering that Google does not celebrate any Christian holidays what are alternatives
