-How a Christian Should Be Responding Online

One of my greatest joys are the friends that I have made online all around the world in the last six years.

However, one of my greatest disappointments is how some of my supposed brothers and sisters in Christ have treated me sometimes over very small points of disagreement. At least small when compared to our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Some have actually been down right mean which is sad when you consider that all of it is displayed for everyone to see – believer and non-believer, Christian and what ever.  

I really believe that Christians should be relating to others on a higher level reflecting the love of the Lord and his call on our life to love others. We should be setting a good example in the name of Jesus and we should also be careful that everything we do and say online reflects well upon our Lord.

Along that line, here’s some great ideas on how a Christian should respond online from the GMO blog:

    Wow! Thank you so much for not only taking the time to read what we have written, but also to share it. I am glad that you were blessed by it. I pray that you would be used to love other’s well online, and that because of this, people would be drawn to God.

    Thanks for the article. It is needed in the Christian community to show that we are trying to display Gods lovee to others – not to condemn or negatively treat our Christian brothers. May God richly bless your ministry.
