Even Jesus is on Facebook

While scrolling through my Facebook news feed this morning, I noticed a strange update:
[Undisclosed Facebook Friend] likes Jesus' status.

Huh?  Social networking really has crossed all boundaries.

Let's end the suspense now.  Jesus isn't logging into Facebook to tell you that He had Applebee's for dinner or to ask you to cheer Him on during His two mile run.  

But it made me wonder what Jesus would say if He really did have a Facebook page?  I'll let you ponder that one for a minute.

As I looked through the status updates, it seems like the person running this page has good intentions, which is great considering that Facebook is up to about 800 million users.  That's quite a congregation.

But unfortunately, here's a sample of the kind of friend posts that you'll find on Jesus' wall:  

 The offensive language comment Becky mentioned was deleted, but whatever it was, I doubt Jesus was impressed with your locker room talk, young man.  This post is better suited for Kanye West's page.

Posting Ads on Jesus' Wall: A New Marketing Low

I doubt this will end up on one of the new Mormon commercials.

Although this person's heart is in the right place, I don't think Jesus dying for us is LOL material. Just sayin'.

Thanks, Taylor, but I doubt  that Jesus will be clicking "like" underneath your inappropriate profile pic.
