That’s how daft people are today.
The latest internet craze ‘The Fire Challenge’ is risking the lives of youngsters who’re ending up in hospital with serious burns after setting themselves on fire for social media ‘likes’. Hospital bosses have said the children are setting themselves on fire in an attempt to become ‘social media stars’.
Idiots… doesn’t seem to capture it…
If you want to know what sin is, and does, then there’s no better analogy than hoarding. The hoarder is the sinner and the hoard are sins. And just as the hoard destroys the hoarder and the lives in the hoarder’s circle so too sin destroys the sinner and the lives in the sinner’s circle. The hoard grows and becomes impossible to manage as does sin. And without outside help (the cleaning crew for the hoarder, and the cleansing from sin of the sinner by Christ) the end result is death.
Shame on you. For real. Shame on you. Listen to what Jesus has to say to you:
Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. (Matt. 6:1-3)
Calling tv stations and telling them what you’re doing is just disgraceful. Buy advertising time if it’s so important to you to have your mug in the public, but don’t dishonor the Gospel by parading your ‘compassion’ on the news.
