I am so sick and tired of people calling social media or being on the internet a sin or Christians shouldn't be using them. Sin can be used in your place of abode, at work, in the car, watching porn, I could go on and on. The computer or the internet can be used for God's glory.
In an overhead at the Church, a preacher gave a wonderful, heart felt sermon. He showed on the overhead projector some graphics for the reason of highlighting his message. Oh, No, he created a great sin for being on the internet.
Another reason of which I have heard about Christians leaving the internet and social media is they have been talked about. Someone has told an untruth about them and passed it on. Oh, No, This wasn't your sin was it? Well, only if it's true.
Maybe someone has robbed us or asked us to pay too much on our electricity bill, gas bill, or phone bill. Maybe we should leave the house because someone has done a great sin and we don't want people to think bad of us.
Oh, I wish people would realise that they are the sinners and they can use the man made tools for God's glory instead of blaming the tools before us as a sinning perpetrator.
The Bible says that <i>“All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”</i> In my way of understanding, He was talking about us. He wasn't talking about social media or the internet. The verse doesn't say “All computers, social media, and the internet has sinned and come short of the Glory of God. I think it's the people using them. What do you think?
My point of encouragement is to use the internet and social media to contact family and friends. Also most importantly to encourage others and to share the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
