Here are some examples of the dark side of facebook!
This is per an email I have received…
“Do you have a Facebook page? Do you want your page to look a little more “established”? I found a service that can help you with that. They can send organic and 100% real likes and followers to your social pages and you can try before you buy with their free trial. Their service is completely safe and they send all likes to your page naturally and over time so nobody will suspect that you bought them. Try their service for free here: http://x.xxxxxxx.com/xx.”
I did not reveal the URL in the above. People do all sorts of ungodly acts just to get “thumbs up” (increasing the numbers). Some Facebook page owners use manipulation, provoking others into giving them a “thumbs up”. Example; we’ll give you a free offer or a discount for “liking us” on facebook.
“Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.” -1 Timothy 6:9-11
It doesn’t matter how many “thumbs up” you have, how popular you are, how much contribution you are making, how successful you are … if you are not playing by God’s Rules via Heaven’s Standards, all is in vain.
“Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown [heaven] except by competing according to the rules. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.” -2 Timothy 2:5-7
True and False Disciples – “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’” -Matthew 7:21-23
