The age of censoring truth

“Censorship used to be a good thing that protected people from things that weren’t good. [ … ] Today censorship is becoming something that is used to silence people who certain individuals in society feel go against their widespread, socially acceptable, ungodly ideologies and dogma. [ … ] We have started to behave like forgetful hearers [ … ] We’ve forgotten Paul’s admonishment in Galatians 1:10 “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” [ … ] If we’re indifferent about sin or don’t hate it at all then that can cause us to not speak against it.”

What is censorship? Well, a quick Google search reveals that it is this:

censorship
/ˈsɛnsəʃɪp/
noun
1.
the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.

Censorship used to be a good thing that protected people from things that weren’t good. I recently  watched a brief documentary about how some people made protests about the filthy lyrics in certain music in the late 80’s and 90’s. This brought about a push for legislation for censoring certain music because children were being exposed to profane lyrics about sex, violence, demonic and other ungodly things. Today censorship is becoming something that is used to silence people who certain individuals in society feel go against their widespread, socially acceptable, ungodly ideologies and dogma.

  1. It is a pity you choose for a black background and not very bright white letters, which makes your texts difficult to read and having the reader always to select your text before he or she can go over to start reading. Perhaps you should consider choosing a different background that is easier to read.

    1. Thanks so much for your visits/reblogs and especially your feedback! My sincere apologies for the inconvenience. You’ve raised an interesting point about the text/background lacking contrast. I’d figured it must just be my poor eyesight (due to RP aka retinitis pigmentosa) since WP had designed the theme that way 🙃
      Today, in response to your feedback, I’ve begun overhauling my nearly 200 posts with white text/black background. This will take me a little while, but I do like the extra contrast! Hopefully you will visit again and agree! 🧐👂🏻💜 Jackie@HwH

      1. You know you can change it better just in the Appearance settings page by the Themes: wordpress.com/wp-admin/themes.php Customizing Colors & Backgrounds so that you do not have to change post per post, but get a general new view of your site. It will take only a few minutes to do that. You also can experiment with colours and fonts before you save. (Best also keep two windows (1. With your original – so you can go back or save that one again) 2. Your trial.) good luck with it!

        1. Yup… I went through all those settings for all the free WP themes before settling on this current theme. The dark theme is MUCH easier for me to see and I’m fine with tweaking each post for better contrast. 😎👂🏻💜Jackie@HwH
