3 Things Christians Should Stop Doing On Social Media

There are a lot of things Christians should stop doing on social media. Here are some of them.

1. Publicly and judgmentally calling people out on their sins or mistakes.

It’s not your place to call other people out on their sins or mistakes, especially in public. Don’t single them out for pure enjoyment. Christians already have a bad reputation in the land of judgment, and the last thing we need is someone rebuking people via Twitter or Facebook. If you’re doing this, please find the “deactivate” button and click it repeatedly.


If you really think it’s that important, call them on the phone, or at least send them a private message. Do us all a favor and stop your social judgment. There is no need to publicly shame someone for something you’re probably doing yourself.

2. Trying to explain theological doctrine in 140 characters or less.

Theology is a subject that was never meant to be paraphrased, half-hearted, or partially explained. Take the time to write a blog post or even make a podcast. Don’t try to manipulate Biblical doctrine to fit in the form of 140 characters or less. God’s word deserves to be drawn out, elaborated, and explained in a plethora of words. Nuggets of partial truth will never be more fulfilling than a plate filled with the whole meal.

3. Getting into arguments on Facebook or Twitter.

Nobody wants to see your drama show up on their news feeds. I mean, I’m sure they’re just waiting to sit back and watch your social boxing match. Maturity plays a big role in using social media. So if you claim to be a Christian, then please keep your drama, arguments, and bickering to yourself. The last thing someone wants to see a Christian do is argue behind the safety of a computer screen. It’s not worth your time, nor does anyone else want to see it.

    The christian should not support the LGBT but they don’t have to Condemned because they already have a place in judgement.

    And they have to stop using the name of the Lord in Vain.

    Yes christian is not perfect that is why we need God, for us to be righteous.

    If anyone try to tell that there’s no God don’t make an argue with them just simple say to them “Thank God your still alive.. “

    “There is no need to publicly shame someone for something you’re probably doing yourself. You want Christians to stop calling each other out but one reason you use to back that up is predicated on the assumption that we’re making the same mistake as them, even though you have no knowledge of our lives and current choices. Assumptive judgement is still judgement.

    I think Christians should stop using foul language or take the Lord’s Name in vain. I don’t think we should use even shortened versions like OMG or LMFAO. If we typed out the whole thing, it would not be acceptable, so how is the shortened version any different? What would Jesus tweet, post, reblog or Instagram?
