I contend that if anybody has bashed anyone, he has done so, albeit for a different reason. How else can you possibly interpret his post. Iíll be glad for him to explain how Iím wrong. You sure havenít.

I sure haven't, because I don't need to. I made my observation of my brother's post.

Until it passed.
Ironically, many of the "young guns" who voted for it, also left.
Insofar as TV goes, "remove not the ancient landmark".
Most of the "Church" today is so far into entertainment that this topic is not even thought of.
We have truly become the church that worships a God that we do not pray to.
Come quickly Lord Jesus.
I know a Pastor that sits high on the pyramid board of the WPF. He is upset at their sudden twist of their belief structure. Many of the men left and stayed openly how the UPCI went in the way of entertainment (TV) to try to reach the lost. Hence why a Pastor from N. Carolina and then another one from Cali started the WPF. A few years back there was a Pastor from one of the southern states that bashed a TV on the platform for the entire audience to see. Now, he uses YouTube for his benefit. How does the ministry look in the eyes of the saints as we used to bash that box and rebuke any that had it, yet now theyíre on it promoting the benefits of it?

Highlighted in red- Thatís a real powerful statement brother.

No you canít. Those recommendations on the side bar are there for a reason.

Because they control the algorithm.

The algorithm largely goes by your prior viewing habits, which that information is stored on your computer or phone as little files called "cookies" which keep track of what you do online so utube knows what to recommend to you based on what the algorithm thinks you like.

Iím sorry I donít believe that. Watching HVAC training videos the side bar doesnít always show HVAC videos.

Had my oldest son look at some school history videos on there, there were some videos about depression that came up.

In my opinion they put videos that have nothing to do with what your watching to catch your attention.

Nick, I'm going to politely ask you to quit while your ahead.

I won't repeat Esaias' post because he explained it 100%. If you get how to pole dance on your recommendations from YouTubes. Then someone is on your device checking out those things.
