The video above is from a friend of mine. He has a different version out now. Its a great call for followers of Jesus to wake up and realize some of the contradictions in their lives. We claim to know Jesus and want to demonstrate love toward others, but how often does that stop at the window of Social Media (Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)?
I am constantly disappointed by people who claim to follow Jesus but consistently live like they do not know him in how they interact on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, etc. For example… I consistently see a “Christian” teenager type up a rant about someone else or even a “Christian” adult make an ambiguous jab at someone in their status update only to have a nosy friend ask, “what happened?” and they spill the beans about how selfish they really are and how wronged they feel about something or someone. This is the kind of thing that should be done in private (Matthew 18) between the offended and the offender… not all over Facebook.
What are some ways that you have seen Social Media (facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc.) be used to proclaim the message of Jesus?
What are some ways that you have seen “Christians” act in unappealing ways on Social Media?
What are some basic guidelines you would recommend for living your faith out on the internet as well as in person?
Don’t forget to view the video above and listen to the song.
