Over the past few days I have been struck by the role social media has played in the church. Sadly, the church rarely gets attention from the media unless something untoward is going on. Last week it was Creflo Dollar’s desire to purchase a $65 million dollar jet. Yesterday someone posted a video of a young lady who is a member of Bishop Charles Ellis’ church. Ellis can currently be seen on The Preachers of Detroit, a reality show on Oxygen. The young lady claimed there was corruption in the church and she had recently been removed from the “armor bearer ministry”. (people who aid the pastor or pastor’s wife). The young lady had been removed from her post. Maybe she tried to meet with the church hierarchy, but she also made her case to the world. So many people saw the tape that the Bishop felt the need to post a response via social media. When did church business become subject to the scrutiny of non-church members? Everyone has an opinion but why? The why is because people feel the need to post everything. From what they eat, drink, wear, go…everything. Social media affirms the greatest of the everyday. Who knows how this situation will be resolved? Stay tuned the former armor bearer is probably posting her rebuttal as I type this post.
Is Social Media an enemy to the church?
