Have Christians become obsessed with Controversy? That is my question as I read through Christian blogs, posts on Christianity, etc. I am part of a Network of Christian bloggers on Facebook where Christians can post their new blog posts and people post regularly. I have posted blogs a couple of times with no traffic coming from the site. Blogs about Jesus, Worship, Prayer, Church, etc are rarely “liked” or commented on however blogs about homosexuality or abortion tend to be the most commented on. Today on “Christian Bloggers Network” on Facebook a fellow blogger posted this:
This post really got me thinking. About a month or so ago I posted an article on my Facebook about “Christians and the Gay Community” and got loads and loads of comments and likes. Everyone had an opinion, everyone wanted to be heard, everyone wanted to “defend” their faith. A few days ago I posted an article about whats going on in Iraq right now, all the persecution of Christians and the intense pressure these Christians these people are under. This article got practically no response.
I am not saying we shouldn’t be informed of political and social issues attacking our Faith, BUT, we shouldn’t be consumed with it.
Why is it that a blog on homosexuality gets more comments, likes and shares than a blog on Prayer, or the Power of Worship, or the Life of Jesus?
