OMG – I trust in thee! Psalm 25:2
Jas 1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
To err means to go astray, to roam, to be out of the way.
Social Media has been a very revealing source of people straying from the Path. Imagine, people who claim Christ as Savior and using thinly veiled vulgarity for all the world to see. Unconscionable!
Words mean things and just because they are veiled by an acronym, it does not lessen their ungodliness. No Christian ought to ever use filthy or blasphemous language in any fashion, especially before the world in social media. Pastor James asked, "Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?" (3:11) We are to use our tongues and our keyboards to bless and not to curse.
And while we are on the subject, we need to go back through all the pictures we have posted for the world to see and remove anything that gives any hint of impropriety. No believer should been seen pictured in a suggestive pose, clothed immodestly, promoting alcohol or in an ungodly environment.
All of these show that we have erred from the path and may cause others to do the same. Once a person is saved, the devil cannot steal their soul, but he can rob them of their testimony. What about yours?
LOL – He is Lord of Lords
