Facebook Sign

This week’s bad church sign of the week states:

“GET OUT OF FACEBOOK AND GET INTO MYBOOK…GOD”

I have a Facebook, and I have a Bible.  I like Facebook.  I love the Bible.

Maybe we shouldn’t be so concerned about getting out of Facebook, but getting the Bible into Facebook.

A standard answer for many Christians is to withdraw from the things of the world.  Don’t get on YouTube, let’s make a GodTube.  I don’t have a problem with that, except if all the Christians left YouTube, who would reach out?

We have to learn what it means to be in the world but not of the world.
