Jesus, our one perfect example of how to live and carry ourselves on this earth, NEVER felt the need to FORCE His truth and thoughts on current events on others... He NEVER made people who didn't believe in Him, or believe differently than Him feel terrible, and He certainly didn't go around spewing out the woes of the current events of the world around Him all over everyone that would listen ... or in our society ... read or scroll through. EVERYTHING HE DID was out of LOVE and RELATIONSHIP.
As a matter of fact, the only time I can find Him getting on a "Soap Box" if you will, is when He had to confront the RELIGIOUS leaders of His day. Even when He was in the most vulnerable situation of His life, when he was brought before those who "mattered" and was asked to prove his case about who He was before being sentenced to death... He chose not to land blast everyone and tell them they were all going to hell because of what they stood for and how they were living their lives. He stood there in silence, in Love. Even upon the excruciating pain of DEATH while hanging on the cross, he had compassion and love for his enemies and asked Father to forgive them.
Let me just share an instance with you so you can get a picture of what it was like to be Jesus in an upside down and hostile environment and culture.
You see? The religious leaders and Pharisees placed the women in sin in public sight for all to see her sin and shame. Jesus instead of feeding into the religious leader's public shaming, knelt down and stared at the dirt. Like children who tattle on one another to their parents, the religious leaders kept bothering him until Jesus paid attention. He in turn said that the sinless could throw the first stone. Everyone left except Jesus. Jesus was the only sinless being that could "cast the first stone" But he didn't. He gave grace. As a matter of fact in Romans 2 the scripture says this about sinners and repentance:
KINDNESS and LOVE turn people away from sin (the act of living in a way God never created you to live) NOT Condemnation!
Everything Jesus was trying to show and teach us was done out of 2 things: Love and Relationship. Don't expect to lead someone into a relationship with God if you have neither of these.
So, if you are sharing this and that on your Facebook page or Twitter to show that you agree or disagree with what's going on in your world, just know that this is neither endearing people to Jesus nor is it drawing people to you so you can have a relationship with them. Just STOP!!!!! Stop screaming out in the town square at the top of your lungs 24 hours a day so that everyone will know what YOU believe and stand for! Jesus didn't and wouldn't do it and neither should you.
Want an example of what not to do on Facebook and other social media? I'll leave this with you, by the way, these are words straight out of Jesus' mouth:
