Perros-Guirec is situated in North Britany. It os a seaside resort, with sandy beaches and water and beach sports. It is known for its pink granite rocks which have been sculpted by the sea into varied shapes and patterns.
My church introduced Covid pass in september and it was the reason why I was not able to join it. Covid pass discriminate poeple. And I felt rejected not accepted. The pastor was afraid to create a cluster like in Mulhouse in the Church Porte Ouverte in february 2020 then he is very zealous to apply restriction and the covid law.
And I decided to search for a church that could accept me. An internet search and I started to create a list of church that accept all people. Me included.
The first Church was Gospel Center.
This service take place in a bar in an activity area between company that rececycle trash and other company that sell solar panel.
My first impression when I arrive in this room was the music. The sound is very loud and it is only preparation. The mixage table is impressive with 4 screens.
It looks like a church show. But why not. I remember in the past I heard criticism about such church that do too much with emotion or show. But why not.
The perfect church does not exists and I have to focus on the positive part. Full of young people, life, worship and a preaching with basic teaching. The speakers talk about the potter and the jar with clay. We must be teachable and flexible. God is the potter and we are the pot.
I thought that censorship was past but no!!! Censorship is for today. We are not free to say what we want.
Before internet (before 2000) censorship was much more light. But now the scope of what we can express is more and more narrow.
I am candid. I think that we can share ideas opinion and think freely. But if you share information that someone disagree you hurt him and he can block you.
On day I receive a message on the Fediverse
Usualy when I receive such message it is conter productive. I am very sensitive with blocking myself or baning. It hurts me so much. That I cry out much more louder. It is like we reject myself without earing.
Now I should show you the post.
Kirche.social as the name means is a social church. Church means christian. Kirche social will ban me because I ask for prayer.
If they consider GAB as theire enemy. Read what Jesus said about enemies in Mathiew 5:44
43“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!
Gab is not federated anymore then I was thinking that it was nice to share this message. Andrew just ask for our prayer. It is a rememder. Of course it is also kind of advertising message. I could cut the upgrade things.
Gab is very controversial site. Lot of people don’t like it. They say they are Nazi, Faschist, racists, homophobes, sexists and I could add many bad words islamophobes (no this is a french word).
I am not the best wise people. I have my own weekness, I am sure past injuries from my childhood is maybe not totaly cured. Sometimes I need to express myself. I try my best to be understood. Sometimes it does not work. Sometimes it is even worst. More I try less I am understood.
That is why more we try to say do not say this do not say that. That when we block me I try to repeat more.
Why blocking is not the solution. If you block me of even ban me. I can created other account. You will not detect quickly it is me. You hurt me and the problem is not solved.
What is the solution. Dialog and empathy. If you try to understand me I will be much more ready to understand you. Probably what I say hurt you. Then if I understand that. It will be much more easy to be carefull.
Censorship will transform in mutual respect.
Censorship is very violent and it does not solve the problem. We need to understand each other.
