So I suck at facebook fasting, let's just face it. And because of that, I've had to convince myself that Facebook is literally the devil. Why you ask?
The seven deadly sins:
Lust: how many times have you stalked the profile
of the one you're "in love with" on facebook.
Gluttony: think of all that time you've spent on facebook
when you could be doing something way more productive.
Greed: How many more friends can we get, how many more photos
of ourselves can we post, how many ways can we shove our lives
into someone else's face?
Laziness: This just speaks for itself...
Wrath: When something on someone's facebook page,
or someone on facebook, just sets you off
and you feel the need to write awful,
terrible things on facebook about this person.
Envy: all those times we envy someone's life
due to what they post on facebook.
Pride: Statuses about how amazing our lives,
(or awful...) but really, who needs to boost
themselves on their own internet lives?
And for Christians, I think this is our biggest one.
We spend a lot of time talking about how amazing
we all are as Christians, even though sometimes,
we don't really mean to,
it's still an issue.
Now, this is not to attack anyone, because if this is the case, I'm totally guilty of these. But this is just how I have to convince myself, to stay off facebook, or just stay very, communication reasons only, limited. I really need to work on relying on God and not relying on other people. Just a thought.
