WEB Notes: We have said this over and over again. Social media is used to create a fantasy world and other people see that fantasy and think the person has this perfect life and they live in some perfect world. Look it does not exist. The closest life to perfect you will find in this world is having a close relationship and bond with our Father in Heaven. He provides happiness, he fills that void in your spirit. Christians who have our Father, who study His Word with understanding are the most happy people in this world. Our happiness is a constant “high”. It never goes away unlike bottle tippers and drug attics. You do not need that trash, you need our Father in Heaven. Go to Him in prayer and ask Him to become a part of your life. Then you put in the work to make that happen.

Just 6 percent of millennials claimed that their social media accounts were a “completely true” depiction of them, according to a report by LendEDU.

54 percent of the nearly 8,500 college students surveyed claimed that their online accounts were “somewhat true of me,” while 25 percent claimed their accounts were “mostly true of me,” and 15 percent claimed they were “not true of me at all.”

  1. From the amplified Bible:

    “And Jesus called [to Him] the throng with His disciples and said to them, If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself [forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests] and take up his cross, and [joining Me as a disciple and siding with My party] follow with Me [continually, cleaving steadfastly to Me].

    For whoever wants to save his [higher, spiritual, eternal] life, will lose it [the lower, natural, temporal life which is lived only on earth]; and whoever gives up his life [which is lived only on earth] for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it [his higher, spiritual life in the eternal kingdom of God].

    For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his life [in the eternal kingdom of God]?” Mark 8:34-36

    “The denying of self is not for the sake of a greater good to self, but for the sake of doing ‘good’ to others. This is really denying self. Self-denial is a real sacrifice of self-interest. It implies if God’s glory is so preferred to our own happiness or convenience, that we deny ourselves for the sake of glorifying Him, it proves that our love to Him is supreme.

    Self-denial also implies the joyful giving up of what we need, or what might contribute to our comfort, for the purpose of doing a greater good to others. It says; let no man think that he follows Christ, until he has renounced himself. It is the giving up of our own interest as the object of pursuit, and devoting ourselves to the glory of God, any thing short of this but confirms selfishness.” Charles Finney

    The denying of self as Christ commanded is no longer a part of Christian conversions and those long time Christians in the churches today have no idea.

    How ironic, to post a comment you have to sign in to your social media. Thankfully, it is allowed to post as a guest.

    • I would like to say, self denial is not all bad. The flesh asks for all sorts of things that are really not good for us. For he rest I refer back to our WEB note.

      And that is why we have enabled guest commenting. Disqus accounts work as well. Thanks for sharing Dave.
