Jesus Christ! It’s a “divine” Facebook page!

Jesus now has his own Facebook page and it’s even more popular than Justin (gasp) Bieber.  It’s true because The New York Times said so…

jesus christ has his own divine facebook page madmikesamerica

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.

    Says one reverend: “They can never replace the importance of people being together physically in the service of worship.”

    Jess’ translation, if they are only doing this online, we can’t con them out of money to put in the collection plates.

      “Con” implies the recipients of your contributions are doing something other than the stated purpose for which the revunes were collected, and you oppose that for which the monies are actually being used.

      I’m going to start mah very own religion. Something along the lines Atheists fir Jesus. It’s catchy, like Jews for Jesus and I can make money without really doing much of anything. Wait though, if you are for Jesus that means you are Christian. Never mind then, I’ll keep thinking.
