So, if I don't "like and share" every Jesus status which tells me to "like and share" if I love Jesus, does that mean I am denying Him? Can I do it three times and still be forgiven? The serious question is, Why do we feel a twinge of guilt because we skip fb statuses that demand us to "like and share" if we hate cancer, love our mother, love Jesus, hate child abuse? Even though those are great, supportive statuses, why are we left feeling like we love cancer, hate our mother, hate Jesus & love child abuse? Philosophical thought for the day: WWPD--WFB? (What would Peter Do With facebook?)

I "Like" your comment. It says it all. :-)
Exactly MK. I was thinking about fb and how it demands things we would not normally do -- like feel bad for not accepting a friend request. What's the matter with us?
Excellent Maggie. Thanks.
What a great way of thinking about it renegadetory. I wonder if people really realize that's what they are doing? There is a bully mentality in the Christian church -- you are right: There's a difference between following Christ & being Christian
Yes, it is called bullying and it isn't only on FB. I posted on my FB page that I had enuf of those and 1 of my friends got highly upset about it and told me to delete all those friends. I don't do that, I just HIDE the post.
Hi Lady Guinevere. I hadn't thought of it as bullying before until I asked this question. It really can be on a personal level. I think its good to hide the post, and agree not to delete friends -- unless they're harmful & not just annoying.
Kate. Thanks for pointing out the offensive part of "99% won't share this". I can understand using that for extremely controversial subjects, but not the basic love stuff. lol.
Great attitude duffsmom. Do any of you ever even have had a tinge of guilt at all? I haven't, but only because I know not to feel guilty. But there seems to be a large amount of people who seem to feel some obligation.
Agreed Brent. I wrote this tongue-in-cheek, but have seen great responses, like yours, they really make us think! Thanks for your comments.
