Did Haman understand what good was? Or was it "good" that he was to hung ? If good defined by God's laws Is twisted by a forked tongue Evil thinks it works a good cause Building humanistic castles of dung. -- Esther 4:5"..when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath. 6 aAnd he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai: wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews ... 7 In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar. 8 And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither keep they the king's laws: therefore it is not for the king's profit to suffer them. 9 If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge of the business, to bring it into the king's treasuries. And the king ...gave it unto Haman to do what "seemeth good to thee"10 Good?? Mt19:17
Possibly the most amazing, even astounding aspect of God's love is that it is unconditional and undeserved. God is so infinitely great that He must condescend to love even the most splendid of His creatures. Therefore, it is an unfathomable demonstration of grace that He would love fallen man, and that that love would lead to the incarnation and death of the His only begotten Son. Our recognition that God's love is totally undeserved is absolutely essential to any proper understanding of it. It is only to the degree that we understand man's depravity and lack of merit that we can fully comprehend the nature of God's love that moved Him to send His Son.
Dt7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. 7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: 8a But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out .. tinysa.com/sermon/9208188172
Is it just Facebook or the Internet in general? For a second, I thought the article was about the moderators of the SA News articles posts. I have noticed they have had to shut down posts to certain articles when the 'fur really starts to fly'
Too many people believe that slavery is a "peculiar institution." That's what Kenneth Stampp called slavery in his book, "Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South." But slavery is by no means peculiar, odd or unusual. It was common among ancient peoples such as the Egyptians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Hittites, Greeks, Persians, Armenians and many others. Large numbers of Christians were enslaved during the Ottoman wars in Europe. White slaves were common in Europe from the Dark Ages to the Middle Ages. It was only after A.D. 1600 that Europeans joined with Arabs and Africans and started the Atlantic slave trade. As David P. Forsythe wrote in his book, "The Globalist," "The fact remained that at the beginning of the nineteenth century an estimated three-quarters of all people alive were trapped in bondage against their will either in some form of slavery or serfdom."
While slavery constitutes one of the grossest encroachments on human liberty, it is by no means unique or restricted to the Western world or United States, as many liberal academics would have us believe. Much of their indoctrination of our young people, at all levels of education, paints U.S. nation's founders as racist adherents to slavery, but the story is not so simple. Our history =evil.

Well my relatives only post pictures on Facebook, they don't mail pictures or send them on cellphones. And the only relatives I communicate over the phone with are those that do not have Facebook accounts.

It would be hard for her to do since she works for the company and it is her job to read posts and find what FB determines is not up to their "standards." She would see the good, bad, and the ugly.
What most people see posted on FB depends on their list of friends, if they get nothing but depravity, then the problem is who they chose for their friends, which again is an indication of heart issues they have.
Facebook is not the problem!! Deleting it solves nothing. The human heart is the problem and needs to be addressed. Our Lord said things proceed from our hearts. Facebook is simply a very public means of communication

If I were to delete Facebook then I would not have anyway of corresponding with my relatives in other states and in the northern part of the state I reside in. I would also not be able to see their pictures as they only post their pictures on Facebook.
"Hell is only a punishment, but sin is a crime. It is more evil than the punishment, and it is that of which Hell is the punishment. The very greatness of this punishment argues the greatness of the crime and the sinfulness of sin. That God is glorified on men in such a way is a clear and full proof what an evil thing it is to sin against and dishonour God. Consequently Hell itself does not inflict so much hurt as sin does. Hell, indeed, is a dismal place of horror and torment, the extremity of suffering, but it never had any existence till sin had. Nor could Hell have such names and such torments as it does now if sin were not there. It is reported as a saying of Anselm that if sin and Hell were set before him and he must go through one of them, he would choose to go through Hell rather than sin. Sin is the worst of Hell and worse than Hell." (Ralph Venning. The Sinfulness of Sin)
Western lie that "people are basically good" scorned by journalists, cops, etc. as they see the truth. Rom7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. -- Mt19:16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. 18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, 19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? 21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. 22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. -- U.S. money says "in God we trust" - &it means " you have in your hands the God u trust " ( THIS is your God ) - if u have the glasses to read
