"Intimacy With Jesus" is moving from Blogger.com to Wordpress.com.
The new Web address is: http://intimacywithjesus.wordpress.com/
If you've gone to Google.com or YouTube.com in the past few days, you may have noticed all the rainbows and rainbow-colored hearts. Apparently, Google is celebrating "love," "equality," and "pride."
Anyway, this kind of nauseated me and creeped me out a bit. Sin should not be celebrated and I don't want to be forced to look at the celebrations!
But that's not the only reason I'm leaving Google/Blogger.com: The U.S. government is becoming more and more sin affirming by the millisecond (thanks Obama!). I can't help but think that as this happens, any opposition to this position (including the very Bible itself) will be deemed "hate speech."
Now, before you start calling me a conspiracy theorist, I'll tell you that I've discovered that Google has a history of censoring Christian content. You can read about it here and here. According to one source in the article, Google flat-out "rejects traditional Judeo-Christian values" (if you're interested, here's a brief list of other companies hostile toward Christianity).
Also, I hear the CEO of Google is pretty chummy with Obama. So, I'm guessing it's just a matter of time before Google/Blogger.com decides to scrub it's blog database, deleting any content it considers "hateful"; any blog that doesn't aggressively celebrate or affirm sin. I figured I'd transfer the content before it got deleted.
I actually spent quite a while searching for free, Christian-friendly blog hosting sites. I also searched for sites that supposedly valued freedom of speech. Wordpress was one of the sites that came up.
According to its Wikipedia page, “WordPress.com supports free speech and doesn’t shut people down for 'uncomfortable thoughts and ideas', in fact we’re blocked in several countries because of that.” I'm hoping this is true. I don't know. I guess we shall see. Of late, it seems as though tolerance and freedom of speech are given to everyone EXCEPT Bible-believing Christians (as opposed to sin-affirming "Christians"). If you know of a better blog hosting site, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (I might change email addresses as well at some point).
So, in a couple of days, this site will be closed.
I hope you come along for the ride! Love yas! <3
