Although I’m not a big fan of MySpace, I check it pretty regularly for messages and such. I usually stick to Facebook, but I’ve got a few friends that aren’t on there. Well one of my “friends” had the following message posted for all to see.
Alright, so it’s time for me to fast MySpace again. I’ll be gone until God tells me it’s time to come back. Call or email me if you need me.
I would have sent the person a message, but who knows when God would have told them it was alright to check it. The thing that I don’t understand is why giving up access to MySpace was such a holy sacrifice. Why is MySpace evil, but email alright?
Alright. The guy made a sacrifice. He gave up the evils of a social networking site. Now what? What kind of arrogant person thinks that God actually cares about their MySpace usage? That’s what really makes me scratch my head. Was God going to come to them in a dream? Would His will be communicated through the clergy? Writing on the wall?
If it weren’t for the fact that I make it a point not to be confrontational with people’s psychotic religious beliefs, I would have called/emailed this guy and tried to get to the bottom of it all.
