Worship leader and songwriter Sean Feucht has called out Twitter and Instagram for censoring posts containing praise and worship videos, and for shutting down an account of Bethel Church’s senior leader Beni Johnson for sharing Bible verses.
“This account doesn’t exist,” says Twitter when you seek to visit Johnson’s profile “@prayfor5,” which had more than 32,000 followers.
In his tweet Thursday, Bethel Music’s Feucht included a screenshot of tweets from Johnson containing Bible verses that had been blocked with the note, “This Tweet may include sensitive content.”
Johnson’s latest post on Twitter carried the Bible verse Psalm 34:14, which reads, “Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.”
“Not only is big tech blocking worship videos, now they’re blocking Bible verses about PEACE! … Social media needs more peace, more worship, and less censorship of Jesus followers. @prayfor5,” Feucht wrote.
Another tweet by the Christian musician read, “This is what we’ve come to in America! Instagram is now classifying my WORSHIP videos as ‘harmful or false information.’ Religious Liberty? Freedom of Speech? Big Tech censorship?”
One of the videos censored was titled “Worshiping through the riots in St. Louis,” which showed a diverse group of people preaching a message of peace, faith and inclusion as music played in the background, according to Fox News.
