Where God has His church, the Devil will have his chapel—even on Facebook

SATAN: Hahahahahaha!
JESUS: Why are you laughing, Devil!
SATAN: You said this is your child!
JESUS: Who are you speaking of?
SATAN: Why—the one reading this, of course!
JESUS: Yes… he is mine.
SATAN: Look!  Your child can’t even type “AMEN” in the comments below!
JESUS: Get thee behind me demon, for my child WILL type “AMEN”!
SATAN: AND MINE WILL JUST IGNORE THIS MESSAGE!

TO ENSURE YOU REMAIN IN JESUS GOOD GRACES PLEASE TYPE “AMEN” IN THE COMMENTS SECTION FOLLOWING THIS POST.

Look familiar?  If you’re on Facebook like the rest of us fools, then chances are you’ve seen this already.  In fact, I’ve seen 4-5 versions of it in just the past month.  This latest exchange between this holy/unholy pair was from this morning:
 
holy chat
If you look at the numbers, you’ll notice that half a million people have clicked “Like” on this.  But hold on, it gets WAY crazier—because the last time I checked, it had close to 1.2  MILLION comments, with no signs of stopping.  That’s a lot of people anxious to do the Lord’s bidding!
 
(Sadly, it appears that 99.9% posted ‘Amen’ and that isn’t even what Jesus asked for;  He specifically requested AMEN, using upper case letters.  There’s a difference, people!)
 
One poor soul wrote “AMEN JESUS! AMEN AMEN!  DID YOU HEAR ME JESUS!! AMEN!”  Dude, calm down—he heard you, you’re safe! 
 
That is, until next time…Eye rolling smile   
 
Okay, so why am I sharing this.  I DON’T KNOW.  I just find it surreal & disturbing that this godawful exchange, most likely written by some banjo pickin’ inbred, has managed to get so many people's attention.  And yes I suppose it got mine too BUT ONLY BECAUSE ONE OR MORE OF MY FRIENDS MUST’VE LIKED &/OR COMMENTED ON IT.  I’ll never know, I’m not about to scroll thru a mllion amens to find out who it was!
 
A couple weeks ago, one of my other friends (Danielle, a heathen like myself) said “I hate Facebook, but I still want to get on there everyday!”  I laughed, but nodded my head in agreement.  I keep telling myself that Facebook helps me feel less lonely, and these days it’s necessary for keeping up with family & friends, but that’s becoming less and less a thing, and this is becoming more and more & more.  jesus is seeing whos naughty or nice
