INTRODUCTION

Every day, people use Facebook to share their experiences, connect with friends and family, and build communities. We are a service for more than two billion people to freely express themselves across countries and cultures and in dozens of languages.

We recognize how important it is for Facebook to be a place where people feel empowered to communicate, and we take seriously our role in keeping abuse off our service. That’s why we’ve developed a set of Community Standards that outline what is and is not allowed on Facebook. Our policies are based on feedback from our community and the advice of experts in fields such as technology, public safety and human rights. To ensure that everyone’s voice is valued, we take great care to craft policies that are inclusive of different views and beliefs, in particular those of people and communities that might otherwise be overlooked or marginalized.

REITERATING OUR COMMITMENT TO VOICE

The goal of our Community Standards has always been to create a place for expression and give people a voice. This has not and will not change. Building community and bringing the world closer together depends on people’s ability to share diverse views, experiences, ideas and information. We want people to be able to talk openly about the issues that matter to them, even if some may disagree or find them objectionable. In some cases, we allow content for public awareness which would otherwise go against our Community Standards – if it is newsworthy and in the public interest. We do this only after weighing the public interest value against the risk of harm and we look to international human rights standards, as reflected in our Corporate Human Rights Policy, to make these judgments. As such, we consider the newsworthiness of content posted by anyone, including news organizations and individuals users. For example, we have allowed content that graphically depicts war or the consequences of war where it is important to public discourse.

Our commitment to expression is paramount, but we recognize the internet creates new and increased opportunities for abuse. For these reasons, when we limit expression, we do it in service of one or more of the following values:

Authenticity: We want to make sure the content people are seeing on Facebook is authentic. We believe that authenticity creates a better environment for sharing, and that’s why we don’t want people using Facebook to misrepresent who they are or what they’re doing.

Safety: We are committed to making Facebook a safe place. Expression that threatens people has the potential to intimidate, exclude or silence others and isn’t allowed on Facebook.

Privacy: We are committed to protecting personal privacy and information. Privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves, and to choose how and when to share on Facebook and to connect more easily.

Dignity: We believe that all people are equal in dignity and rights. We expect that people will respect the dignity of others and not harass or degrade others.

Our Community Standards apply to everyone, all around the world, and to all types of content. They’re designed to be comprehensive – for example, content that might not be considered hateful may still be removed for violating a different policy. We recognize that words mean different things or affect people differently depending on their local community, language, or background. We work hard to account for these nuances while also applying our policies consistently and fairly to people and their expression. Our enforcement of these standards relies on information available to us. In some cases, this means that we may not detect content and behavior that violates these standards, and in others, enforcement may be limited to circumstances where we have been provided with additional information and context.

People can report potentially violating content, including Pages, Groups, Profiles, individual content, and comments. We also give people control over their own experience by allowing them to block, unfollow or hide people and posts.

The consequences for violating our Community Standards vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person's history on the platform. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation, but if they continue to violate our policies, we may restrict their ability to post on Facebook or disable their profile. We also may notify law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or a direct threat to public safety.

Our Community Standards are a guide for what is and isn’t allowed on Facebook. It is in this spirit that we ask members of the Facebook community to follow these guidelines.

Please note that the US English version of the Community Standards reflects the most up-to-date set of the policies and should be used as the master document.

I believe that one of the lessons we need to learn here is when leading people to Christ is we need to let them know that we cannot hang on to our sins and at the same time reach out to Jesus.

Sin is sin. It do not matter if it is the love of money, drug addiction, greed, murder, homosexuality, drunkenness, etc…

We are not saved by selling everything and giving it to the poor. We are saved when we trust in Jesus Christ the Son of God. He is the one that gave His very life to make us rich.

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. - 2 Corinthians 8:9

Rich means to know Jesus Christ, not having a lot of money. If one don’t know Jesus there life spent here was worthless and people’s lives are just a mist compared to eternity.

Jesus knew that the love of money was the sin that was standing in the way of this man and was keeping him from giving his life to God.

So what ever sin people want to hold on to instead of giving their life to Jesus will block them from knowing God until they repent. We as sinners must be sincere in repentance before we can turn to God and ask for and expect forgiveness by His saving grace. This kind of story is told over and over through out the bible but it seems to be so hard to get people to see it. Seems that so many are asleep in the light.

Big tech scrubs religious radio show from YouTube

YouTube removed another entire radio show from its platform, hosted by popular Christian author and social commentator Eric Metaxas, citing violations of "THEIR" community standards.


June 3, 2021

Metaxas – author of biographies on the lives of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther, and William Wilberforce, among many other books – announced the news to his social media pages on Tuesday.

“It’s happened,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “Despite our going FAR out of our way to comply with their arbitrary ‘community standards’, YouTube decided to remove every single video we’ve ever done on the Eric Metaxas Show off their platform.”

Also, YouTube is now censoring government meetings that it doesn’t want the public to see… is Big Tech now dictating what governments are allowed to say or visa versa?

AND further to the North in Canada: Churches serving Indigneous congregations like Saint kateri Tekakwitha on Spiekne’katik First Nations territory in Nova Scotia have not been spared the ire of the far-left terror campaign.

In fact, unlike the fake Catholic, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who sympathizes with the terrorists, First Nations elders and former residential school survivors have been some of the loudest voices calling for the attacks to end.

TERRORISM: “We are refugees. We escaped from Vietnam to come here to get more freedom, to live, and we think it was a good country - and now it happened to our church,” Pastor Nguyen said. “Maybe it is not safe to be here in Canada compared to Vietnam” from link

Mark 10:26

The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked.

Under the Old Covenant, people were rewarded for obedience with good health, long life, and prosperity. I guess this is why the disciples found it so surprising that it was impossible for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God. But Jesus was born into poverty, (God could have chosen otherwise), so this is one of the changes between the Old and the New Testaments. Is this right, or did I drive off the road here?

One of the things being impressed on me lately is what I’ve taken to describing as the “exclusivity” of the kingdom of God, which I think is exemplified in the “camel through the eye of a needle” metaphor. In Mark 10:23-24, immediately prior to the verse you cited, Jesus twice says “How HARD it is to enter the kingdom of God!”

Mark 10:15 “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it”
What is characteristic of children do we need to have to enter the kingdom of God?
Is it child-like innocence?
It is trust and faith?

Carol,
I had always heard it explained by speakers that "the eye of a needle" was a gate for animals that a camel, getting down on its knees, could, with great difficulty, pass through. But, I believe, as you said about the proverb, that it represents something absolutely impossible that requires God's intervention.
Thank you dear friend for your post. May God bless your ministry today!
David

Mark 10:25

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” (NKJV)

I just learned, finally, that this was a common Jewish proverb describing something impossible and absurd.
