Social Networks


Wow, social networking online is extremely popular right now. I think that over the past few years, the internet has really changed in content towards more rich social media and more forms of social networking. Gen X and Y love rich forms of media like videos, pictures, and HTML gadgets and tools that use Flash and Java and other IT devices and codes. Anyways the internet is changing so much an articles I recently read claims of a better way, and it is coming soon.

Today I want to share some neat Christian social networking sites. But first I want to expose to you an extensive list of social networking sites from Wikipedia. It is amazing how many there are out there. Yes, Facebook and Myspace are still number one and two here in the USA, but there some interesting genre-specific communities, as well as neat networks based in other countries – all online.

The most interesting fact is that this list, is not exhaustive. It does not even touch some of the really neat Christian social networks! Which is why I am posting today. I am going to provide to you some of the neat Christian networks, and my list is not exhaustive at all, these are a few of my favorites:

http://www.ShoutLife.com – This is similar to Myspace.

http://www.GodTube.com – Similar to Youtube.

http://www.Iyouthminstry.com – Really cool if you are a youth minister.

http://www.xianz.com/– Like Myspace, but better!

http://www.mychurch.org/– facebook for churches.

http://www.faithbase.com/
– I have not explored it yet.

I hope you find these helpful. I have been studying a lot about social networks, so do not be surprised if you see more posts about them.
I want to leave you with a funny video about Facebook.

Obama a Christian?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080302/ap_on_el_pr/obama

Post popular on Myspace:
Who is Barack Obama?

Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was
born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black
MUSLIM
from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white ATHEIST from
Wichita, Kansas.
Obama’s parents met at the
University of Hawaii. When Obama was two years old, his parents
divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His
mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL
Muslim from Indonesia.?
When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocate to
Indonesia. Obama
attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. He also spent two
years in a Catholic school.

Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He
is quick to point out that, “He was once a
Muslim, but that he also
attended Catholic school.”

Obama’s political handlers are attempting to make it appear that
he is not a
radical.

Obama’s introduction to Islam came via his father, and that
this influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama
returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any
direct
influence over his son’s education.

Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham,
introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was
enrolled in a Wahabi school
in Jakarta.

Wahabism is the RADICAL
teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now
waging Jihad against the western world. Since
it is politically expedient to be a
CHRISTIAN when seeking major public office in the United States,
Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an
attempt to
downplay his Muslim
background. ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn
into office he DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Koran.

Barack Hussein Obama will NOT recite the Pledge of Allegiance nor
will he show any reverence for our flag. While others place their
hands
over their hearts, Obama turns his back to the flag and slouches.

Let us all remain alert concerning Obama’s expected presidential
candidacy.

The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the
inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level –
through the President of the United States, one of their own!!!!

Please forward to everyone you know. Would you want this man
leading our country?……

NOT ME!!!

  • Obama has been in the news a lot recently regarding religion. Clinton’s camp and some extreme Republican camps have came out and tried to say that he is/was a Muslim.
  • His middle name is Hussein, this should be a non-issue but some people have radical opinions about this.
  • Obama is actually a Christian and has been promoting this clearly lately.
  • He is a Christian, but should a Christian vote for him?
    Some say “Yes”
    Others say “No”

  • Interesting video where Obama talks about these things:
  • Obama’s social political platform

  • Obama’s talk on abortion and faith:
    [An abortion protester at a campaign event] handed me a pamphlet. “Mr. Obama, I know you’re a Christian, with a family of your own. So how can you support murdering babies?”

    I told him I understood his position but had to disagree with it. I explained my belief that few women made the decision to terminate a pregnancy casually; that any pregnant woman felt the full force of the moral issues involved when making that decision; that I feared a ban on abortion would force women to seek unsafe abortions, as they had once done in this country. I suggested that perhaps we could agree on ways to reduce the number of women who felt the need to have abortions in the first place.

    “I will pray for you,” the protester said. “I pray that you have a change of heart.” Neither my mind nor my heart changed that day, nor did they in the days to come. But that night, before I went to bed, I said a prayer of my own-that I might extend the same presumption of good faith to others that had been extended to me.

  • Finally if that were not enough Obama has got a lot of attention due to good ole Reverend Wright.

In the end it is your choice
