Thanks for not sharing!

Being mindful of my “public position” as a pastor, I want to say that what I’m about to share wasn’t prompted by my seeing a post from anyone in particular.

But, as Christian people who seek to refrain from offensive language (as is fitting for people of the Spirit) let’s be careful what we share with others on social media.

I’m detecting a little trend in which people who perhaps wouldn’t use bad language in real life are letting loose with gutter talk, second-hand, by sharing the crude speech of others.

If you know you shouldn’t use the “F-word,” why are you sharing with me a photo from a Facebook group called “I F****** Love Science?”

Something to think about. Let’s watch our tongues – even our online ones…

    I have noticed this, too, Pastor Nick, and have found that downloading the image, if you like it, then posting it yourself, removes the offending page’s title language, I just did it with one, to make sure I was right 🙂
