Guest Post - Social Media - Why Jump Ship?

My sister-in-law wrote this last year and gave me permission to share it. 

Editor's Note: This issue about social media and jumping to alternate, sketchy services to make a point over politics happened in 2021, but it is something that Christians need to think about soberly and wisely.  One service some Christians were going to and supporting at that time ended up in the midst of criminals, filth, and others who were looking for freedom from the law and decency, not freedom of speech to say right things. Please consider my sister-in-law's useful observations on the matter and ask yourself this question: Why am I really on social media in the first place, and should persecution or opposing political views change that objective?

Evening Song - Living By Faith

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

The Living Way - A Poem by Annie Johnson Flint

The Living Way

“Out of nothing into nothing,” runs the ancient lore;
Man’s brief life a spark of glory, then forevermore
Quenched in emptiness and darkness, sea without a shore.

Out of darkness into glory – moderns say we go,
Falling back and climbing upward, painfully and slow,
Reaching thus the heights supernal; but God says not so.

Out of glory into darkness, God declares man fell;
By the way of his own choosing going down to hell,
Down to woe and death eternal; thus the Scriptures tell.

Out of darkness up to glory, God bids man arise,
By the Living Way of Jesus, mounting to the skies,
They who seek it for life’s journey are the truly wise.

And the Way of God’s providing is the only Way;
By the Cross it leads man upward now as yesterday,
Home to God and home to heaven, there to dwell for aye.

- Annie Johnson Flint -

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Evening Song - No, Not One

Isaiah 42:1-4 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. 

James 5:11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. 

Hebrews 4:14-15 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Evening Song - Take It to the Lord In Prayer

Since I missed the Evening Song post on Saturday, I thought I'd post this one this evening because it fits with the post yesterday. :-)

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 

1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
