This is my "coming out" post. I'm coming out in support of chickens as emotional support animals. I know this revelation will come as a shock to many, and will be met with sneering and judgment from others. But I have Jesus on my side. Let me explain.
Sometimes God calms the storm, but other times the ship goes down. We need to represent Christ in either case.
"I can see it now—at the Final Judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, ‘Master, we posted Christian memes and Bible verses on our Facebook page, we bashed the demons and online trolls, our God-sponsored projects had everyone talking and tweeting about us on social media.’ And do you know what I am going to say? ‘You missed the boat." -JESUS
"Don’t reduce holy mysteries to slogans and Christian bumper sticker cliches and memes...Don’t paste what is holy on people’s pages who are unholy and unreceptive to spiritual things. Don’t throw your pearls and treasured convictions before social media swine! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you with their own strong opinions." -JESUS
“You’re familiar with the command to the ancients, ‘Do not murder.’ I’m telling you that anyone who is so much as angry with a brother or sister [on social media] is guilty of murder...Thoughtlessly yell ‘stupid!’ at a sister [via Twitter] and you are on the brink of hellfire. The simple moral fact is that words kill." -JESUS
In this 4-part series we ask, "How would Jesus conduct himself on social media?" Listen to this adaptation of Jesus' most famous teaching -- Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5-7) -- applied directly to online interaction.
