F.B. – Face Balatkayo

Me isa akong friend sa FB who is always posting Bible Verses taken from http://www.biblegateway.com and from http://www.crosscards.com at iba pang mga posts na isinishare niya basta tungkol sa Bible. He is not that close to me, at di rin naman magkalapit ang bahay or bayan namin at maging ang aming rehiyon sa pinas.

Maayos naman ang mga posts niya, halos 2 hanggang tatlo ang posts niya ng ganoong tema. Kaya lang napuna ko na parang hindi ugma sa kanyang inaasal ang mga posts niya. Maraming fould words ang inilalagay din niya sa wall niya. Meron pang ilan na nangaaway talaga siya at personal pa ang atake, hanggang sa amoy ng paa, hiram na gamit, atbpa.

Sabi ko sa sarili ko, Social Media is really a reflection of our true selves. Kung ano tayo, e hindi nating maitatago sa pamamagitan ng pagsishare o pagpopost ng mga motivational or religious na letrato, quotes at mga advises. FB in particular has been abused and become a showroom na ng arrogance, pagyayabang o pangungutya ng ibang tao, in the guise of comments or likes.

Last Friday nabasa ko ke friend sa wall mismo niya na nagpapasend siya sa isang kaibigan ng Certificate of Employment as a Safety Engineer at iiedit na lang daw niya ang pangalan. Ilalagay ang pangalan niya, para sa inaaplayan niyang ibang kompanya dahil mayroon daw namang lalakad ng papel niya. Is this his way of showing what he usually proclaimed as “God loves asks us to be honest” followed by verses like 2 Corinthians 8:21 , Proverbs 19:1 , Proverbs 6:16-20 , 1 Peter 3:10-12  or  Philippians 4:8-9.

When in FB, there are posts and comments that we have to be discreet.

Or better yet, be straight and honest. Truthfully. Sincerely. And GODLY.

Masked behaviour. Split personality.
