Bible Bashing on Social Media

As a Christian, I have no problem with people posting bible quotes or verses on social media. I do it myself.
However, there are people who seem to have a Facebook account with the SOLE PURPOSE to post bible verses and/or devotions... which becomes annoying, even for a Christian.
So, imagine how much more annoying it would be for a non-believer... Something many people don't seem to think about.

Personally, I have unfollowed people on Facebook, because I simply want to see them: how they're travelling, life events (weddings, babies, etc)...not bible verses. I begin to think, what's the point of even being friends?

If you are one of these kinds of people, I am not trying to judge, I simply want to ask why you have a Facebook account, when you could have a blog. Do you want to influence your friends? I believe you genuinely do. There is nothing wrong with that.

I do believe Facebook (and other forms of social media) can be a great tool for ministry. I appreciate many verses and devotions I see.

Please, just think about whether most of your posts are encouraging or bible bashing...
