The Devil

I wonder if this is true.

I do think the devil loves the perpetual “forward this if you…” stuff on Facebook.  Never attached that to the power of his pitchfork though.  Could be:

    Somehow I get uncomfortable with posts like this.. I understand it’s supposed to be metaphorical because I’m not sure the devil gets headaches as such.

    But – if I’m going to let my “light shine” on Facebook, then a cutesy thing about the devil probably won’t be my choice – especially when it uses a guilt trip to convince me to repost (ie the devil will have defeated me). I’m not sure it would win souls, or convince peeps to carry/read the bible more. We don’t do those things to upset the devil, we do them to develop our relationship with God.

    Even if the post is accurate (who knows!) -If I re-post – at best, people know I’m a Christian who believes the devil is real. At worst, I have lost all credibility with my peers, and the chances of convincing them that God is relevant for all people today, and not just for fruit loops, dramatically decreases.

    Ps I never repost on FB anyway 🙂

    I know that all my friends hate everything ’cause they never repost my insipid time-wasting stuff…

    I am married to an accountant that communicates to relay data.
    Nothing drives her over the edge quicker than needless e-mail forwards — especially if they are jokes or political.
    This has been good for me because she forced me to examine the quality and content of my posts.
    I use FaceBook and e-mail as an extension of my ministry. So I don’t want to distract or delute the message.
    When people see a posting from me, I want their programmed response to be (a) positive, (b) challenging, (c) scriptural.
    No, I don’t always succeed but striving to this end is worthwhile.

    The first thing to do to get de-friended by me on FB is to start posting “guilt-trip” forwards. Nope..

Where Do the Religiously Unaffiliated Come From?

A closer look at the trends driving the growth of the unaffiliated may suggest that the trend is in part a result of those with a low religious commitment being more comfortable stating they are not religious, as those with that commitment level shifted by 9% toward unaffiliated. In addition, the overall growth of the nonreligious, including atheists and agnostics has grown from 10% of Americans to 23% of Americans.   Click here to get the full story.
