There is one issue that many in the clergy would like Americans to fully understand.
Art Pavelski, an upstate New York Pastor of Pierce Hill Christian Fellowship explained, “Christ is neither conservative or liberal and that Christ is both.”
But there is fear that the politics of our era would affect the message of Christianity.
As of now, the big tech censorship of people like Donald Trump or of Parler has not hit the church. But many are concerned that might be the next step.
Pavelski said, “It could affect the church. If it gets to the point where you are saying that when you talk about Christian viewpoints and it is considered to be too offensive. That could be the case.”
There would be a big reason the big tech firms out there would censor Christianity in America.
“These Twitter accounts, Facebook, whatever the social media is not owned by Christians,” Pavelski said. “It’s not a Christian company. So, you cannot expect them to act in any kind of a Christian manner. That, that’s just the way it is.”
There is also another reason the church is on the lookout for possible big tech censorship.
“Maybe people who would say that that some of the things that the Christians talk about would be inappropriate,” said Pavelski. “It would be what some would consider hate speech.”
As of now, Pavelski said the attack on Christianity has not grown too out of control in America.
“I haven’t seen anything compared to any kind of attack on Christians like it has been in the first century, where Christians are fed to the lions. There aren’t any Christians being fed to lions in the United States that I know of.”
Pavelski also notes that Christians are persecuted in other parts of the world, including those with a one-party system.
