Facebook and the next life

OMG– where is this going?  Don’t worry- nothing spooky (Oct. 31st being tomorrow notwithstanding 🙂 )  Give me 30 sec.- something just hit me, and to illustrate it, I’m going to post here and at Facebook simultaneously.

An online IT commentator says in a recent post, “It’s all enough to make me want to stop using Facebook.” The “it” is a creepy feeling he gets when, by way of his Facebook Wall, his relative starts a conversation thread with some guy who is the neighbor of his co-worker, and their only connection is … him!  In other words, his formerly separate spheres of relationships (family, work, neighbors, etc.) are now melding together into one big, sometimes confusing glob.

That’s heavenHere’s why:

For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light.  (Luke 8:17)

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.  (1 Cor. 13:12)

Lance Ulanoff’s unease isn’t with information per se, but with what sinful people might do with it (including himself, I think he would be honest enough to say).  He goes on to comment that he won’t quit Facebook, because of the social benefits.  But heaven will be one massive, amazing Facebook+ where we are all intimate friends (with our Creator/Master/Savior God) and therefore with each other! No fear!! Only wonder… I can’t wait 🙂
