Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Google And YouTube Keeps Attacking Internet Christian Ministries!

Posted by Job on March 26, 2008

I first noticed this when Youtube “suspended” the account of Ephesians511 and deleted all of his videos. I have not been able to locate the brother’s work online since! Their bowing to the demands of heretic Benny Hinn cost others their accounts as well, not to mention attempts by the likes of Medina S. Pullings and Jaci Velasquez. Also, Google Video took offline and deleted a video that I had located and uploaded about Muslims persecuting Christian converts in Muslim countries. The claim was that the video “did not meet their review standards”, but this was after they initially approved it and allowed it to run several days, and also despite never acting against any of the even more controversial videos in my account (including at least one that can plausibly be accused of being anti – Semitic)! Obviously, Google removed the video as a result of receiving a complaint.

Well, now some more moves against the faithful by this faithless corporate empire (I am speaking of the entity itself and not the Christians that work there). Dazzarai’s YouTube account has been shut down by the corporate office. And a very useful news, commentary, and apologetics site that is a frequent source of articles that I feature on here CONTAINING INFORMATION THAT YOU WILL OFTEN NOT FIND REPORTED IN THE MAINSTREAM OR “CHRISTIAN” MEDIA has been shut down by Google on the totally baseless charge of “spam linking” because the site’s owner has the unmitigated gall to – gasp! – place his articles on two sites, both of which are owned and maintained by him!

This is of interest to me because I am somewhat against Christians segregating themselves on sites like GodTube and SermonAudio. I have nothing any of those efforts – especially SermonAudio – but I would hope that people who use GodTube, SermonAudio, and similar would also submit their work to YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video, etc. in order to increase the chances that the unsaved may come across their work and be converted. But it honestly appears that the Google/Youtube empire is trying to hinder precisely that from happening.

I will say that GodTube exists precisely for this reason.  The creators of GodTube specifically stated that they were motivated to do so out of frustration over YouTube’s deleting Christian videos and suspending their accounts (while generally taking no action against the many people that use their accounts to defame Jesus Christ, including the many that present false teachers and a false gospel). Meanwhile SermonAudio (which truthfully is more dedicated to podcasting than to video sharing) will only accept submissions from people whose beliefs measure up to Biblical Christianity.

I personally have been having so much trouble with Google Video lately (my last three video uploads, including two that I planned to post on this site for Easter, never appeared in my account) that I have resorted to using much lower profile services like Crackle, which although in many cases actually offer a superior video sharing product than YouTube or Google have nowhere near as many users and whose videos are virtually ignored by search engines.

So are Christians going to have to choose between self – segregation/low exposure and the risk of having their accounts removed and hard work discarded? I still recall how all of Slice of Laodicea‘s  were “accidentally” deleted by their hosting company, who then claimed that the files were unrecoverable. Was this hosting company being harassed by the false preachers that Slice of Laodicea was exposing, and/or their fans? It certainly seems like it. Other Christian Internet ministries have had other harassing tactics used against them such as people falsely reporting them to ISPs as spammers.

By the way, does the fact that Al Gore is a huge stakeholder in Google (which owns YouTube) have anything to do with this? I have no evidence that Gore is involved in their operations, but it is still a curiosity to me.  In any event, if you are a Christian with a strong Bible – based message on the Internet (or in any medium), expect those loyal to the world – and the Satan that rules the world – to oppose your ministry.

    Very interesting. Plus, thanks for the heads-up on GodTube. I had never been there before.

  3. Job,

    The attacks on YouTube and Google are very real. You and I are witnesses along with many others of what they’ve done to our material and that of many others. And yes it’s because what we expose does not enjoy being exposed. So complaints are lodged against us and any reason that can be thought up used for removing the material that exposes anti-Christ activity.

    Some say GodTube leans towards protecting some of the big named TV celebrities in “televangelism”. I know one guy posted a video on GodTube where he said he felt Billy Graham’s cancer was judgment from God. I can’t say I found it to be anything I’d vocally 2nd, but I didn’t contact that guy and claim he was wrong either. And I had no problem touching base with him when I strongly felt he spoke in error on other matters. Well GodTube dumped his video. Interestingly enough, because of that he stuck with YouTube and because of his speaking against Islam YouTube dumped him. And I was behind him standing against Islam 100%! I even posted one of the videos he made about that on my blog. In time I stopped watching his stuff once he claimed the Bible was NOT the Word of God to us, but that’s another matter, GodTube didn’t remove any video of his for something like that, but for speaking against Billy Graham and YouTube dumped his account for speaking against Islam. He was working on getting his own site up, I don’t know how far he’s made it with that.

    Regarding Google dumping someone on the charge of them having duplicates posted, that is very much Google policy and they apply that across the board. You know I’ve run many sites over the years and many webmasters who run Google ads found that they were dumped from advertising with Google when they cross linked things even in ways that were legitimate, but not for Google. Them dumping anything for multiple copies or linking in ways they don’t like is the norm. I doubt that’s a case of being dumped for standing on Christ, but given what has happen to so many of us, I guess it’s possible, I’m just thinking the odds are low.

    Google is hardcore Liberal from the bottom up. So they have some internal bias against much of what we do, although I doubt they hunt for stuff to remove themselves. It seems especially with the Islamists, that they are on a coordinated mission to snuff out anything that exposes them for the anti-Christ cult of Muhammad that they are.

    With Crackle, is there a way to post their videos without thumbnails of other totally unrelated videos showing up on the video preview screen shot?

    When might WordPress and Blogger(Google) start shutting down Christian blogs 😕 ?

    Well this is why I run my own separate blog and make backups. I don’t have the resources to do my own video hosting, but it’s obvious we can’t consider YouTube/Google to be a reliable means for posting our videos.

  4. And did you know that even atheists that speak against Islam on YouTube lose videos or their entire account? And those fool atheists are usually the favorite sons of YouTube! Of course they’re allowed to berate us to no end.

    Have your friends upload your videos too.
    It’s no problem having them (your enemies) burn out, just make their work heavier.
    These attackers are just reprobates that are easily defeated if you make their job harder.
    They always fizz out when the going gets tough, because they don’t really believe the lie they follow.
    Pray that their hardware break, pray their electricity is cut.
    Can’t do work with a broken harddrive now can you?

    And if you really want to mess things up for them you do as them make big groups that go out and mark their videos etc. If you get 100 people you can do some serious damage. And while you are at it use their own agencies against them.

    The prayer of just one saint can crumble their ridiculous “empires”, seen it happen before.
    Their resources are not infinite. Have them on the run not the other way around.

  6. Hey there ‘Not Important’, how do you square your statements with the following?

    Romans 12:14-21 (New American Standard Bible)

    14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

    15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

    16 Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly Do not be wise in your own estimation.

    17 Never pay back evil for evil to anyone Respect what is right in the sight of all men.

    18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.

    19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord.

    20 “BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM, AND IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK; FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS ON HIS HEAD.”

    21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

    I have my doubts the Lord would honor prayer for our enemies to suffer hardware failure.

    If we deal treacherously like our enemies, we’d have a much harder time claiming we follow Christ and represent the Light of His truth.

    We have the truth. We don’t need to hand evil for evil to spread it. When one door closes, the Lord will open another for us in His time. For all we know, the Lord could allow us all to be removed from Google and YouTube, to move on spreading the truth via another means.

    All Godtube users are encouraged to post on youtube (evangelism) and Godtube (edification).

    i must say. I like ‘independent conservative’ and their response…

    Too many people in this world believe in the ‘eye for an eye’ philosophy, which just increases the amount of hatred, violence, and negativity in th world.

    I also find it interesting, that this article (and some posters) condemn Google, yet this site uses ‘Google ads’… Funny… <-sarcasm.

  9. Youtube is for profit. We are on their territory and they can do what ever. Unfortunately. But we got God tube:)
