Social Media

Neither shall you allege the example of the many
as an excuse for doing wrong.

— Exodus 23:2

AS popular as they may be in contemporary culture, social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest) have only one psychological purpose: to get approval and acceptance from others. In your desperation to get approval, you are drawn into an evil breeding ground for pride and lust, as well as for anger, rudeness, hostility, hate, and bullying of anyone you don’t like—and so you are drawn away from developing contemplative love for God. Note carefully that these evil behaviors, as Saint Paul warned, will exclude a person from the Kingdom of Heaven (see Galatians 5:19–21). 

Still, despite the Biblical warnings, most Catholics refuse to listen.

“What’s wrong with these things?”

“They corrupt your mind and lead it astray by opening it to demonic influence—and you won’t even be aware that it’s occurring.”

“That’s ridiculous. I use social media all the time, and I don’t see anything wrong with it!”

“That’s what I just told you.”

So, do you get it? We’re all in danger of having our minds snatched by evil, and most of us don’t even realize it—even those who have already been snatched.
