Stop making fools of yourselves on Facebook


Fri June 20, 2013

Editor: I want to bring to the attention of the public, and especially all users of Facebook, the need to act wisely, with common sense, when posting information on such social networks. Yes, I know we are living in the last days and the Scriptures point out that people will be displaying negative attitudes that will be anything but godly.{{more}} (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Hence, we cannot expect that all Facebook users will change for the better. But this does not mean that each of us has to be a part of the negative fulfillment of prophecy. So, can we pay more attention to the dirty expressions, the indecent language, the nude photos that some of us post on Facebook? I’ve seen people, who claim to be Christian, posting sh…, a…, f… words on Facebook. Then you see these persons reading the Bible, singing religious songs, and behaving as though they are so holy. How ridiculous! Though we are not perfect, we certainly have the ability to do much better in our use of Facebook.

There are the few who use Facebook decently and I commend them for doing so and encourage them to keep up the dignified way they use Facebook. To others who don’t, why not show deep respect for the Almighty? Remember, Jehovah is the MOST HIGH, the one with everlasting strength. (Psalms 83:18; Isaiah 26:4) Being the Highest person in the entire universe, and the CREATOR as well, we should try hard to use clean expressions on Facebook and elsewhere; post decent photos, thus showing proper respect for God and His position. (Revelation 4:11)

Remember, Jehovah sees every thought that comes to our mind, every letter we write as we express those thoughts on Facebook, every photo we put there too. Remember too that we ALL have to give to God account for our thoughts, speech, and actions. (Romans 14:12) Therefore, avoid making yourselves foolish on Facebook.

Let us express clean, pure thoughts, like God’s Son, Jesus Christ, encourages us to do. (Luke 6:45)

Let us “bring forth that which is good” on Facebook and elsewhere.
