Thinktheology: To post or not to post?

By Andrew Blunt on ThinkTheology.com:

I like social media. I like that it helps me keep a slight connection with friends who I rarely see in person; I like that it often gives me something to have a good laugh about, and I like that it points me to interesting news, articles, and videos.

But recently I’ve been posting less and less, and that’s because I’ve been asking myself a different question before clicking ‘post’. I’ve been asking, ‘What good might this do, and what harm might it do?’

As I’ve been thinking this through I’ve been considering it in light of two New Testament passages. It comes down to posting in the way of love and posting in the interests of others.
