They are elevating or drawing attention to SELF. We are supposed to die to self and to draw attention or elevate Christ.

Selfies are SELFcentered. They exalt the very thing we are supposed to crucify.

I am not interested in going on an anti-selfie campaign. People are creative. They are made after a creative God.

Better than taking photos of celebs: “..and Jesus passed through the press..”

John Kissinger [08/18/2015 9:49 AM]
So, if I’m reading this right, taking a selfie and posting it on social media is not a form of narcissism or self-obsession but a form of healthy self-acceptance and a desire to be accepted for who I am, what I look like, and where I am. There’s some truth in this possibility http://www.biblesociety.org.au/news/biblical-wisdom-say-selfie

Would Jesus take a selfie?

We work so hard to project the perfect image of ourselves but Jesus’s attention was always on God and those around HIM 1st first http://www.christiantoday.com/article/would.jesus.take.a.selfie/35164.htm

This and thwxassicuated study are both secular and do not account for evangelistic tendencies. In the linked study (see bottom of the study page for link) it features bith men and women (from Poland) but again dicuessed I negative traites. For instance, in finding that selfie-posting tended to Inc read amk g thise seeing themselves as leaders, this was linked with “more willing to manipulate”. THAT statement I’d more a reflection on the researchers mind set than the subjects (especially as no ratioake was offered as to why that might be so.)

Therefore I conclude that both studies were flawed at best. Of course our pre-conditions and need for inner being will be reflected in our on-line behaviour. But the taking of selfues us not the cause – only a possible symptom.

Ok having now preached to the choir let’s post a nice selfie…..

Brody Pope [08/18/2015 10:21 AM]
Pentecostal Theology I’m trying to post a question on your timeline but it won’t let me.

Brody Pope [08/18/2015 10:36 AM]

You don’t expect trivialities from the deepest ocean of intellectualism?

 

Marc Bowers [08/18/2015 11:06 AM]
Man now your killing me lol #selfieking what will I do now
Dianna Orea [08/18/2015 11:06 AM]
Also there are some selfies that are very ungodly. Those that expose more flesh than they ought.

Is STARBUCKS biblical?

John Ruffle [08/18/2015 11:09 AM]
Is it BIBLICAL to spell biblical with a lower case “b”?

Marc Bowers [08/18/2015 11:10 AM]

Marc Bowers [08/18/2015 11:14 AM]
Does going to a grocery store make it a sin

Pentecostal Theology [08/18/2015 11:17 AM]
#STARBUCKS has a naked mermaid logo promoting a certain culture… like the drink discovered by Rick Wadholm Jr http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/hebrew-semantics-of-the-drink-of-the-beast/

    My point is: there are way much more serious issues that the Church needs to provide a Biblical or at least theological answer.
