I hate chain letters of any sort.... this was on my Face Book wall today. It is typical of these fear promoting and ridiculous e-chain letters!
"If you believe in Jesus Christ, pass this on. If you don't you will be denying Christ and will not be blessed.. pass this on to 50 friends within half an hour and God will bless you.. "
I won't be passing it on. Here's what I said in my comment: I believe God is near to the broken-hearted, His Word says so. But I won't be passing these on in fear that I will be denying Him if I don't. That would be just another form of a chain letter and promotes fear and superstition. My place is secure in Christ because of what He did, not what I do....
We serve a powerful, supernatural God. There is no place for superstition or fear. He is powerful enough and loving enough not to need our help in making Him known through falsity. He Is Truth! Don't pass stuff like this on! He doesn't need cheap parlour tricks to make Himself known. It belittles Him.
