I Timothy 5:13
And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
What I was told (after our service): “That verse is talking about Facebook.”
I’m sure he was wrong. I’m sure people wouldn’t talk about frivolous / idle things, waste time, wander about from
house to house profile to profile snooping in others personal lives, spreading stuff that doesn’t need to spread (about themselves or others). I’m sure they wouldn’t take idleness and gossip to such a level that they do it without even stirring to go from house to house, without even stirring from the chair in front of their computer. I’m sure people wouldn’t thoughtlessly say things they shouldn’t say.
- I know Facebook can be used well, just like visiting someone else’s house can.
- This post is not intended to exonerate Twitter or other “social networking.” 🙂
