Harsh Realities of Facebook Friendship #1

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:29-32)

All have fallen short of the glory of God. Although I have fallen far short of the mark in regards to producing thoughts entirely free of corruption, I have pointed no one on Facebook to myself but to Christ only. In fact, I have often admitted to being an idiot. The proof is documented in black and white and available for the entire world to scrutinize. Having incurred wrath and condemnation as a result, I have made an observation and it may be mine alone: A true friend will never need to question our integrity. This is a sort of litmus test of the type of intimacy which defines true friendship.
