Light Up Your Faith On Social Media

Estimated Reading Time: 5 minutes

Spreading the Gospel

Social media is an easy way to share our Christian faith, especially via Twitter. Light up your faith by adding relevant hashtags, engaging the people you follow with RTs, Likes, or comments, and by not being afraid to respond to a sarcastic @Mention about your beliefs. This is your moment to spread the gospel. Look — if you don’t know your Bible, then a simple testimonial statement will do. Those of you who do know your Bible, contend for the faith.

Report Inappropriate Content

Next, you can light up your faith by reporting abuse. Many teens and newbies use Twitter and everyone knows that Twitter has slimy people who spam hashtag feeds incessantly, post pornographic images, get verbally abusive, or who attempt cyber attacks with erroneous links. Why not cut this garbage out? Report them here.

Love with Action

Furthermore, always remember that the “cloud of witnesses” are watching. We are called to be a holy family and the Bible tells us that we will know who are His by how we love each other. Evenso, love doesn’t mean that we don’t correct or reject hypocrisy.

If you have a personal account, follow Christians because you like their content and plan to support them. Don’t follow as if you’re a troll who sits beneath the bridge with no love or communication—ever. You might as well just leave.

Love is an action in the body of Christ. Don’t say “Follows do not constitute an endorsement.” People who say this most likely buy their follows. Similarly, certain users only retweet or like comments about themselves. Remain authentic with your Christian followers or move on because building a following for the primary purpose of making yourself appear valuable is vain. A person ought to be honest with themselves in the sight of the Lord.

Do not be the incessant retweeter. People follow you for your thoughts and feelings, not the hundreds of random others who most of the time have been unfollowed because they bought their followers.

Post relevant content. For personal accounts, you can post about you, but you should also like or retweet agreeable content from the internet and from your followers. Then, people will get to know you and not leave you later. Moreover, this is how you show your authenticity.

Try not to follow people if you do not like their tweets. Check their tweets and follow who you like. It’s okay to follow people who don’t follow back– I do it all the time, but it’s great when they do.

Some followers have surprised me when they post a false doctrine every once in a while. For example, when this happens, I try to know when to give mercy. Some believers are immature in the faith so I try to give them time— and tweet the truth. Nevertheless, I think that giving friendly likes about what I do agree with— go a long way. Don’t be selfish. If they aren’t receiving and reciprocating, I unfollow.

[8] Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: [9] Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. [10] For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: [11] Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. [12] For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. [13] And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? [14] But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye : and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; [15] But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: [16] Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. [17] For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. ~1 Peter 3:8-17 KJV
