Stop being a Facebook Christian

I certainly agree that pastors, Christians, disciplemakers all need more FACE TO FACE relationships to advance the Christian mission. Social media may be nice once those are established, but fundamentally we need to be seeing more people face to face as this blog suggests.

The Jagged Word

How in the world did America go from being a majority against same sex marriage to a majority for it?  Facebook, Instagram, twitter, and bumper stickers.

Facebook allows for an exponential spreading of quick slogans. Period. And who is going to argue against a rainbow or against two people who are holding hands with the proclamation, “love wins”? No one. Within a day teenage girls are posting and sharing these slogans throughout the world with no thought involved at all. Hitler would have loved Facebook. Isis certainly enjoys the internet. Our amazing ability to communicate quickly is negated by the requirement of very short slogans and pictures!
