Our society glorifies immoral behavior and tears down any who try to uphold traditional Christian morals. But no power can muzzle the truth of God's word: not the government, not the president, not Google, Facebook or Twitter.
The words of the Bible are like no other. They bring hope to the hopeless, peace where there is turmoil, and mercy for condemnation. Reading God's Word will change your life and our world is hungry for this truth!
Scripture mentioned in this episode:
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
"For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it."
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

How To Stop Using Google Search On Your Computer And Phone
Google controls what the vast majority of the world finds on the internet. Being put at the top of the Google results for search is not only immensely lucrative, it is also almost mind-bogglingly powerful in global affairs.
Since 2016, according to multiple reports, Google’s algorithm has been increasingly manipulated to bury and elevate specific information, especially politically charged information.
