Digital Multiple Personality Syndrome

DMPS – Do you have it? You might.

Do you ever post to facebook, or twitter statements you would never say verbally to the person you have directed the statement to?

In other words, you would never say what you posted to their face.

If this is you you have…

DMPS

These digital smack downs are damaging and never help relationships. In fact it proves that there is a personality difference between when one is sitting in the safety of their home behind their keyboard and when they are in public. In fact they would never say what they have posted if a face to face confrontation were taking place…

you know…

if the situation was handled…

lets say…

Biblically.

Of course before the digital age (even thought this still exists today) people “suffered” from TNITRSICSTMPS… or Their Not In The Room So I Can Say This Multi Personality Syndrome. In the Bible it’s “Gossip” for short.

But enough of that, Back to DMPS…

When you are posting social media do you flirt with people you would not flirt with in real life? Do you tweet or post things you would never say in your offline life? Do you post pictures of yourself wearing things you would never wear in public?

If so you are suffering from…

DMPS

Keeping different personalities going and separated has to be a tiring job. God never intended for us to live that way. If someone keeps up this sort of life style, things will eventually happen that need to be hidden and they will do things they never imagined they would be involved in.

More importantly, friendships will be lost, it will strain relationships and hinder one’s relationship with God.

DMPS, is a choice. There is no drug that will help someone that has it… only repentance will take it away,

and a renewed focus on living like Jesus, will keep it away, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

How are you doing with the social media world?

Are you authentic or do you need to make a change?

Those Hypocrites…

Hypocrites are everywhere!

Everywhere

Yes there are hypocrites in your local church

they also eat at McDonalds, shop at Walmart, go to your local college, were part of your High School Graduating class, are political leaders and factory workers in fact everywhere you go they exist.

It’s the person who is driving 5 miles under the speed limit being a cautious driver when you almost hit them as they rolled through that stop sign.

It’s the person who shouts from the roof top tolerance but is intolerant of all that have an opposing idea.

It’s the person who says they are on a diet and ate 5 helpings of your mama’s banana pudding though they eat very little of the actual meal.

It’s the person who screams at someone because of that person’s anger problem.

and the list could go on…

why?

Because we are all Hypocrites

all of us

We have all fallen into it and it is extremely difficult not to live at some level of Hypocrisy.

Why?

Because none of us is perfect and because we are not perfect…

we all need a Savior

A Savior we cry out for

indirectly or directly

every time we get irritated
