The pre-election atmosphere really did not settle well with me. I watched as Christians went back and forth in either blaming President Bush, bashing President Obama, and belittling Governor Mitt Romney. The discussion was not just political. It was at times plain disrespectful. I do not think disrespecting the Presidency is a good thing. Each side had hypocrisy in belief. If you were a Christian picking a candidate, you did not have an easy job, if, if, you believe the Bible is the word of God.
I made a few comments on the election regarding the homosexual issue and the authority of God’s word. Sometimes people do no like that. I understand. I disagree, but understand. I’ve actually made a commitment to not do politics in Facebook. It simply accomplishes little.
Facebook is a social place for me. I only want to be friends with people who actually know me face to face. Being a pastor, I get a lot of invites online to be friends with people who only want something from me concerning their business. That is what “Like” pages are for. Business people should create those.
If you would like to be friends with me on Facebook, I would rather you initiate the friend request. I seek out few people on Facebook. I give you the permission to block me later if you need to and I will not ask you about it. I would never think to do that. It’s all good. Yet I reserve the right to block anyone who crosses the line in content. And some content is over the line.
I love Facebook better now that I have fewer friends. I have had to not be friends with teenagers as I am guarding my social influence. Twitter is a much better place to connect with me online. I am willing to talk you through the set up
What is your Facebook policy? Do you think I am wrong?
