Posted by | .


It is important for pastors and ministers to have some kind of presence on Social Media. Read my previous article on this:  -Pastors and Social media: Five Mistakes to Avoid

Nevertheless there are major ways that pastors can actually undermine their ministry in the process. Here’s a good article from Christianity Today listing 3 things that pastors should avoid:

3 Ways Pastors and Church Leaders Undermine Themselves on Social Media

The 3 Things:

1. Trying to Become Famous

2. Causing Unnecessary Division

3. Sharing Fake News

Fake news is a major issue right now. Christians unfortunately are becoming ‘famous’ for passing on false information, memes, and bogus made–up problems, issues and testimonies on social media.

Lots of times stuff coming your way from others may sound good and on the ‘right side’ and it is tempting just to pass it along. But Pastors and ministers should take the time to research and verify everything. Your credibility is at stake and your followers and flock are depending on you to stand up for the truth no matter what.

Many pastors have been burned in the past by promoting false memes and fake news and issues. It only takes a minute or two to find out the truth and if you don’t have the time right now it is better not to pass it along until you do.

Pastors who receive false stuff should also inform the senders so they don’t continue to pass it on. Unfortunately some may take it personally so be careful to present the truth with lots of grace.               *Top
