Jesus Is Not A Facebook Status

I was going through some blog posts I started and never finished. I came across this. I think I was going to write a long dissertation, but that’s not really required which is probably why I never finished this post.

I don’t consider this “witnessing”. I don’t consider it “furthing the Kingdom of Heaven”. I consider it annoying. Just like those silly emails that essentially tell you “If you don’t forward this silly, poorly written poem to 10 people, you don’t love Jesus”. I delete those immediately. This is designed to get people who agree with you to feel good, and to annoy people who don’t agree with you. It’s not a good argument, and it’s not a good example.

I recall a bumper sticker I saw once: “Dear God, please save me from your followers.”

There are far more effective ways to show we’re followers of Jesus that forwarding emails and copying and pasting Facebook statuses.

By the way, I did NOT post that message on my wall.

Col 3:[17] And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
