Original Sin? ‘Hate Speech,’ Facebook Says

[Thanks to Susan for the news tip]

Love turns into hate when secular social media bigwigs encounter it.

Christian blogger Ginger Taylor was banned from Facebook for seven days for quoting St. Augustine on the central Christian doctrine of Original Sin–which the barbarians at Facebook decided was “hate speech” (https://adventuresinautism.blogspot.com/2019/07/i-am-blocked-from-facebook-for-seven.html?fbclid=IwAR1TaS2P2xWkhObKiPhy6bD-4b33XJwMMI02liFxJgEgzsmjhaZuv-OYOq0).

Uh, why do we need a Savior, if there’s no Original Sin? But God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

This is “hate”?

Now, if we were able to save ourselves just being piling up good works and being nice guys, why would we need the Son of God? Why would the Word need to become flesh, be born into this world, live among us, and be crucified, dead, and buried? Why should Christ have needed to be atonement for our sins, if we can simply cleanse ourselves by works of the flesh?

This is the original Christian doctrine, this is the whole point of Christianity–and Facebook calls it “hate speech.” God’s sublime love for His creation–for us!–becomes, in their eyes, “hate.” Why? Because God knows what we are and loves us anyway, and knows how to sanctify us by His sovereign grace? Because He won’t give us participation trophies and “Good job!” refrigerator magnets?

And now let’s see if FB lets me post this…

    This is reprehensible, and I have just about left fb behind. Also, I am having trouble opening newswithviews and world net daily. I can usually get on the home pages, but when I try to open an article..uh uh, just blocking ads come up if anything at all. I am getting so fed up with all this hog wash.

      Well, I have to use Facebook because that’s what’s out there. I get around their censorship robot by leading certain posts with pictures of happy puppies or kittens–then I can say what I please. Robots can’t respond effectively to the unexpected (one of those things you learn from chess).

    Ya, I know it is kind of hard to completely get away from this thing. It is the only place where I can find out what is going on with some of my family members and friends.

    I do, at times, but it is hard to get anyone who is at the office, or on the road, etc. We do talk at times, but seems they spend more time on f b

    The original sin is the desire to be autonomous, to be one’s own god and determine for our self what is good and evil. You know, “I did it my way.” “Be the captain of your own ship.” “I am my own person.” When every being of our life is stamped with the ownership of our Creator God. That’s why we all have a conscience, and we all desire justice.

    2 Tim 4:3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,”

    Seems to fit.
