Brian Regan and Christian Social Media

April 23, 2010

Sadly, I think a great blind spot for Christians in social media is self-promotion. It is very appealing to hunger and thirst for a wide readership or work diligently for links, mentions, “retweets”, or new followers.  This inordinate desire impacts our behavior online.  We become self-promoters, constantly talking about ourselves and pointing to what others are saying about us.  We become, as Brian Regan calls it, Me-Monsters. It is an enemy to meekness and, fundamentally, it is unchristian behavior. The video below is funny, but its makes an observation about behavior Christians should be quick to die to.

    Very well said, mate. Saviour-promotion very quickly becomes self-promotion, without us even realising it. Humility becomes mutated into something else, while we still masquerade it as humility. Be blest. 🙂
