Read the short summary here:
Move over, Justin Bieber. Jesus Christ is here. The New York Times reports that a Facebook page called Jesus Daily is generating more “Likes” and comments than Bieber’s page simply by posting the words of Jesus four or five times a day. Last week it racked up 3.4 million interactions to Bieber’s 630,000, but who’s counting. The man behind it, North Carolina doctor Aaron Tabor, says he only started it as a hobby about two years ago. “I wanted to provide people with encouragement,” he says.
And Jesus Daily is not alone. Facebook’s top-20 traffic pages include Joyce Meyer Ministries, another Jesus page, and Dios Es Bueno (or “God is Great”). What’s more, a reverend and a rabbi tell the Times that Facebook is helping places of worship attract more congregants and online worshipers. But others warn that Internet prayer is not enough. Says one reverend: “They can never replace the importance of people being together physically in the service of worship.”
If you haven’t already done so make sure to take a trip over to Jesus’ FB page. It should be a divine experience.Click here for reuse options!
