Posting on Facebook

In today’s world, there is so much evil happening in the world. Those in the Christian Circle loves to post “end time” related stories because it reminds them that Jesus  is coming soon, and those who are politically minded, loves to  bring down our current president (especially if they disapprove of the current administration.) But how many likes do you get? Sure you get a few, but sometimes you can strike a bad chord in someone.

A  few weeks ago, I posted something about Obama. It was what i\I thought was the truth about him. It is no secret that Republicans don’t like him and neither do I, but it;s not because he’s black nor that he is  inexperienced, but because like many republicans and other non democrats, we have yet seen anything positive about him. It;s a known fact that he wants to undo what our founding fathers did  to prevent tyranny- signing the constitution.

Another type of post that received some negative attention are religious posts. Isn’t that interesting? Because you hear that politics and religion should not be discussed because people will disagree. Posting like that is similar to discussing with people. An example of a religious post was  a cartoon of Satan and his puppet which looked like a preacher. (The post is titled “The puppet and the Pulpit”). The only reason why I posted that was because  it reminded me of what my pastor  said  during his sermon. I only said that there are some preachers out there who have decided not to preach on the blood of jesus. A friend saw that and told me I was giving too much power to Satan. No, I’m bringing awareness. We can’t ignore Satan. Paul wrote that we are not ignorant of his schemes. Did jesus ignore him? Didn’t he rebuked Satan a few times? “Get thee Behind me Satan…”

So how do we get the likes? Stay away from posting on those two subjects. The world is full of trouble and people long to see something positive. I recently posted something about a 15 years old boy  chasing a car on his bike because he saw a  little girl being taken from her home.  I have gotten more likes on that than I have on political and  religious posts. Oh, don’t get me wrong, if you post something that inspires that’s okay, but if you post something by a charismatic leaders, people will pepper spray you with negative comments. Also  a good personal testimony will get you likes too.
