Please Forward E-mails Responsibly

When we as Christians forward e-mails that contain information with the purpose or disguise of "educating others," the very least we can do is take a few minutes to verify the accuracy of the information contained therein.

Be a responsible ambassador for Christ, use the resources available to verify a story before you pass along e-mail meant to influence others. Snopes.com and Google are your friend. If you are not willing to do this, delete the e-mail. No one needs MORE JUNK e-mail.

If you pass around lies against a person, company or organization, you are spreading evil and are working for the enemy. What you are doing is not God "working through you to inform others" because all of His works are done in TRUTH.

Proverbs 33:4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
