To Facebook or Not to Facebook????

This little light of mine I'm gonna let it SHINE

I am really sad with everything I see on Facebook lately! Stupid links, bad conversations, people flaunting their sin, ect.... It seems like every other post is SIN SIN SIN, or some sort of discouragement!
I am SICK of it!!!!! I am going to be praying about deleting my whole account or doing some serious purging on my friend list. I love being able to share pictures and small updates on myself with family and some close friends though.

I am just really tired of supposed Christians giving Satan such glory, and not taking a stand on what others post in their comments. I had someone recently delete a comment of mine that was joke/sarcastic comment, yet they leave other peoples comments that swear, andtake my GOD's name in vain. I don't appreciate the swearing! BUT I CANNOT STAND SOMEONE TAKING HIS NAME IN VAIN. I would rather someone spit in my face than hear my Saviors name used that way!

Really are we Christians in name only??? Can someone tell you are a saved by your Facebook, other than the fact that you put it in your BIO??? Are our lights going out??!! Why are we quoting songs that are sick songs of the devil? Talking about our personal life and how we are so messed up in sin, yet letting the whole facebook world see it. The change in our lifestyle from a life of Christian service to a life of glorifying ourself ! I wish I had the guts to call some people out, but it frustrates me too much that I am sure it wouldn't be taken in love!

Now I am sure someone is gonna get irritated over this, but I am sad to see so many friends fall by the wayside, back into or newly into the world which they were saved from! I see many, not just a few too, which makes me sad. What the Lord goes through, I can't imagine His sadness at Christians of today, Myself included!!! Come on Christians let's take a stand on sin, and please the LORD!

  1. Well now that I vented I feel much better!

  2. Good job! I think FB is a good thing if used correctly, but as you've pointed out, many times it's not.

    Sister, try to use your FB account as you do this blog - a place to let your light shine. Don't be afraid to call out other Christians (who should know better) who are acting sinfully. There's no excuse for it.

  3. I found your blog through the Steven Anderson family blog and the title of the post caught my eye. I posted on this very same topic several months ago. My husband and I both had to make the conscientious decision to leave social networking sites. The premise for our decision was simple: if we guarded our networking "friends" like we do our real life friends, we would have next to no friends. Not to mention that we would be "friends" with people who go to church with us, since some have things on their sites that are inappropriate (ie music), that would in turn lead to us offending others. There were so many other reasons we had to leave, but that was the biggest. Who we call a friend says a lot about us.

    Great post!!

  4. Good post Katerina! Get's one to thinking.

    I love you blog, it's beautiful, just like you!

  5. I found your blog through the Steven Anderson family blog also (my blog 'heartsdesire' is also in Zsuzsanna's blogroll)

    I had been deliberating on this issue a little while ago. In the end I kept my account open, simply because a few people contacted me, to thank me for linking my blog posts to FB, as they had been an encouragement to them. That made it all worthwhile! Admittedly I have deleted a few people simply becuase I got fed up with the disgusting things they were writing!

    I have added myself to your followers list! A great thought provoking post!


In Love Always & Forever
