One thing I absolutely loathe, besides politics, is Christians acting a fool. Now before you go quoting the whole “log in the eye” thing back at me (Matthew 7:3-5), let me just throw out the following disclaimer:

Disclaimer:

1. I am an Extreme-Fall-Shorter. So when I talk about Christians acting a fool, I’ve been there, done that and will no doubt act a fool again.

*

Okay.

*

I’ve been sitting on this one for a long time.  I actually had it written well before Christians acting a fool #1 but for some reason I just couldn’t pull the trigger on it.  But now……it’s time.

Christians acting a fool on Facebook.

*

Status update #1 – “Scripture” (Awesome!)

*

Status update #2 – “I found a great deal at store A” (Good for you!  I’m gonna ‘Like’ your status.)

*

Status update #3 – “Checked in at church.”  (Nice.)

*

Status update #4 – “I don’t know why some people have to be such A$#@%$#@…..!” – RANT RANT RANT! (Oh….)

*

Status update #5 – “Uplifting message.” (Yeah….but….the whole ‘A$#@%$#@’ thing….what’s….I don’t….hmm….)

*

Status update #6 – “Complain! Complain! Complain!” (Okay…..?)

*

Status update #7 – “Scripture!” (Okay….?)

*

Status update #8 – “Political rant with F-Bombs!” ( 🙁 )

*

(Loud, long exhale………..)

Dear Christians,

*

Non-Christians, the lost, which probably includes many of your fb friends, are watching you.  Watching you to see if you have a little somethin’-somethin’.  Watching you to see if there’s a little something to this whole Christianity thing.  Watching you to see if being a Christian is just some dress up game you play on Sunday mornings or if it goes deeper.  Watching you to see if you’ll screw up.  Some can’t wait to watch a Christian screw up.  That used to be me, I loved watching Christians screw up because that backed up my theory that they were just a bunch of frauds. 

*

I’m not saying that everything you post needs to be scripture.  I’m not even saying that you have to post scripture at all, but if you are a Christian and telegraph it in any way shape or form, then you are repping Christianity to non-Christians.  Fair?  NO WAY!  But that’s the way it is.  So Christians, think about that before you post your next status update and !!! STOP ACTING A FOOL ON FACEBOOK !!!

    Also, don’t forget that fb friends can also see what comments you are making on other’s walls and posts and pictures. And socialcam and the like now post the videos you’re watching.
    The goal is not to be Christ (impossible) but Christ-like. Not perfect but to attempt to be above reproach.
    Who are you when no one’s looking?
