Christians and Social Media

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Should Christians use Social Media? The answer to that question should be only if they allow God to use their actions for His purpose. God must bless their participation. There are many negative areas Christians should be aware of when using social media. A few of those areas are gossiping, derogatory remarks, arguing, and posting your personal business on social media which play a significant role in controlling your emotions.

Some people use social media for advertisement, socializing, spying an online dating. When a Christian use social media should it be for faith base purposes only? Is it possible a Christian can be apart of the social networking community without involving themselves in unhealthy conversations or actions? Whose social media should Christians join or does it matter?

Should Christians get involved in non-Christian activities on social networks? Should Christians involve themselves with celebrity gossip, sending celebrities to heaven/hell by way of social media when they die ( sounds silly but it happens). Promoting false prophets. Agreeing with derogatory pictures or videos. Getting upset if followers decrease. Could it be possible Facebook control people actions and emotions?

Christians using social networks should not be an obstacle to the Christian community. It becomes a hindrance when the Christian community allow social networks to become their God, psychologist and decision maker. If you are a Christian and you use social networks remember, we are God’s representatives. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20

    I loved when you talked about “do we get mad when followers decrease”? A lot of times in the past I allowed the decrease to bother me within business. I am always reminded that whatever I am doing, I do it for GOD and not people. Yes, I want to reach people with the love of the LORD just don’t lose the message worrying about numbers.
