2 years ago I had maybe 200 FaceBook friendships that I thought meant something. Now, 2 years later, I have to try to keep it under 500 FaceBook relationships, most of which I KNOW mean something. Something strong, healing and uplifting. They are a safe place for me to ask anything.
I've come to realize my reasons for wanting to leave FB and they aren't what I've been telling myself. See, I have this idol. It's one I'm having a hard time letting go of. I don't simply impose it on myself, but I want others to enjoy it also. So I change what I share to, in a way, offer the comfort this idol gives me to anyone I think might be uncomfortable by what I have to say. My idol? "Comfort". It really is a nuisance when you want to follow what God places on your heart but refuse to do it because the comfort the idol gives seems more important at the time.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not doing anything out of anger or hate. Someone reading might be looking for an answer to questions. If you're offended by what I post and want to get all huffy about it, then no, the post wasn't for you. It was for the person who's quietly read and quietly pondered the post but didn't want to raise any flags and bring undue attention to themselves. There are so many living a lie because they don't want to be looked at as doubting or loosing faith. There is so much support and love waiting for someone in a faith crisis. Don't fear the truth.
John 8:23 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
You will be free in deed! Free from the rules of men. It can't be seen because the "god of this world", spoken of in the Bible, 2 Corinthians 4:4 truly has blinded the eyes of men.
