Facebook is intensifying its formal partnerships with faith groups across the United States and shaping the future of churchgoing as it entices users to connect with God on Facebook, rather than at a place of worship, according to a report by the New York Times. For example, Facebook developers had reportedly met weekly with the Hillsong Church in Atlanta, Georgia, to explore what the church would look like if it were on Facebook instead, as well as what apps they might create for financial giving, video capability, and livestreaming. “Together, we are discovering what the future of the church could be on Facebook,” said Sam Collier, Hillsong’s pastor.

Mark Zuckerberg believes the coronavirus pandemic has created a new opportunity for Facebook to grow. His plan involves incentivizing churchgoers — who have become familiar with virtual services over the past year due to lockdowns — to permanently move their religious worship online.

Just a short while ago, Facebook removed my post because it went against their Community Standards, and was something that could potentially ’cause harm’ to certain groups of people. What was in that post that was so egregious and offensive to the Facebook censors? It was Proverbs 20:1 warning against the corrupting influence of alcohol. Now Facebook wants to control the Christian worship service, and to that end, they have found the perfect first willing victim. Laodicean Hillsong.

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:15,16 (KJB)

Charles Spurgeon once prophetically remarked that ‘A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats’. Hillsong Church and all their ilk are the living, breathing fulfillment of that statement from the 19th century. The fact that they are partnering with Facebook to create a ‘modern worship experience to engage 21st century technology-savvy users’ shows me the falling away from 2 Thessalonians is now complete. And then some.

Mark Zuckerberg Wants Laodicean Churchgoers to Connect with God on Facebook

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The company is intensifying its formal partnerships with faith groups across the United States and shaping the future of churchgoing as it entices users to connect with God on Facebook, rather than at a place of worship, according to a report by the New York Times.

For example, Facebook developers had reportedly met weekly with the Hillsong Church in Atlanta, Georgia, to explore what the church would look like if it were on Facebook instead, as well as what apps they might create for financial giving, video capability, and livestreaming.

“TOGETHER, WE ARE DISCOVERING WHAT THE FUTURE OF THE CHURCH COULD BE ON FACEBOOK,” SAID SAM COLLIER, HILLSONG’S PASTOR.

In June, the church issued a news release saying it was “partnering with Facebook,” and then began streaming its services exclusively on the social media platform. Facebook now seeks to “become the virtual home for religious community,” reports the Times, noting that the pandemic sparked this strategy for drawing more engaged users to the social media platform, as religious groups have already been pushed to explore alternative ways to operate in the wake of lockdowns.

“The partnerships reveal how Big Tech and religion are converging far beyond simply moving services to the internet. Facebook is shaping the future of religious experience itself, as it has done for political and social life,” the report adds.

But not everybody thinks this is a good idea — especially given Facebook’s reputation with regards to censorship, and generally behaving in an unscrupulous and questionable manner.
