    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

A Biblical Anatomy Lesson

For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also [is] Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12

In 1 Corinthians 12, the apostle Paul likens the church (not the building but the believers who gather there to worship God and fellowship with one another) to the human body, which consists of many individual parts that work wonderfully together for one purpose: to keep you alive and moving.

Paul wanted the believers in Corinth to understand that they all had a role to play within the local church—some bigger and others smaller, some more up front and others more behind the scenes—but all important to the church as a whole. “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it,” he wrote (v.27).

If Paul were writing to the different church bodies today, he’d tell them the same thing. Each member has a part to play for the greater good of the church.

God doesn’t intend for you to attend church services every week just to warm a pew. On the contrary, He has given you special gifts and abilities so that you can serve this wonderful organism called the Body of Christ. Your part in this bargain is to seek out and discover your gifts so that you can begin serving.
