We live at a time when many Biblical churches find themselves at odds with the culture, even church culture. Churches are increasingly being asked to compromise their Biblical principles and alter their messages to suit the broader culture.
Last year, for example, the mayor of Houston wanted to review pastors’ sermons to ensure they were not offending the community or hurting anyone’s feelings. Efforts like these are not only attempts to dilute the Gospel, but to distort and diminish the absolute truths found in God’s word.
Another example is a ministry The National Center for Life and Liberty is currently defending. They’ve been removed from the Amazon Smile program because of their Christian beliefs. The Amazon Smile program should allow any reputable nonprofit to be involved, but Amazon is now policing organizations and apparently censoring those with Biblical beliefs.
Much like Amazon, Google’s advertising program is blocking a Christian company in Florida that creates websites for churches, preventing the churches from participating in the largest web-based advertising program available. Much like Amazon, Google is policing these Christian ministries and deciding which nonprofits to allow, censoring those with Christian content.
Just like a corporation couldn’t refuse to allow a pro-abortion industry to advertise, the same should be true for Christian organizations, especially considering these were not donations by Amazon and Google, they were services denied to paying customers.
As churches and other ministries now find themselves victims of these new cultural norms that seek to squelch their religious freedoms and punish them for their beliefs, the National Center for Life and Liberty will fight for their rights. but we need your prayers.
Some of the things we ask you to pray for are:
Thank you for your loyal support and faithful prayers for the NCLL as we daily strive to fulfill our mantra, "If it's wrong, fight it. If it's right, fight for it."
