Why Social Media Shouldn’t be Your Own Paparazzi

Social Media tends to make everyone a celebrity. By definition, status means, “high standing, prestige.” So every day that people update their “status” on social media, some cleave to that kind of thinking. 

Born from this are the hundred selfies people post online, the carefully cropped photos, and the separation of private life from public life. I read an article on how social media was set up like a paparazzi so everyone could feel like a celebrity. If you study how the successful marketers like the Obama campaign managed their social media, you would be left breathless at the success of it. I see social media in a different light. 

What if every Bible-only believing online Christian paid attention to what they posted? What if we examined our profiles as if we were an unsaved secular person? What would our social media say about us? What if every Bible-only believing Christian united together and posted with purpose and forethought? 

Yes, we’d each have our different denominations, but every Bible-only believing Christian church could unite while maintaining their individual personalities. I propose we leave the scandals of church out of our media, stop bashing church leaders online and on the golf course, and keep accountability within each individual church, using social media instead to help propel the Gospel first.

I’m building a new movement.

Will you help me fund it? Will you join me? Let’s use social media to shine Christ’s light through us into a dark world. Study the successful campaign of the Billy Graham Crusades, and you’ll see the foundation in which they built their organization.
