One more thing…YOU did nothing wrong. We can´t hold ourselves responsible for what everyone else says and does. I know, in theory, the Bible says to do fraternal correction, but realistically, especially since the advent of the Internet, and given the low level society is at, it’s impractical, and unworkable to literally follow that advice.
People on Twitter, or FaceBook, who put, say, a pornographic image up, usually know it´s not right. So, I find it´s usually not necessary in most cases to even spell that out, since they generally already know.
I doubt you will change anyone. I used to take it to heart what the Bible said about our need to correct, fraternally. I lost one very good friend from trying to do just that.
So, since then, I have practically stopped fraternal correction, except if the person asks my opinion.
You will drive yourself crazy if you believe you need to correct everyone or are guilty of a sin every time you see something …pornographic, etc.
In our society, at this time, sadly, evil is EVERYWHERE.
It´s on the movies, in the books, magazines…EVERYWHERE. Try to limit your contact to it, but don´t drive yourself crazy over this issue.
I used to try SO hard to limit my exposure. Now, I take a more realistic, pragmatic approach. I do what I can, within reason, to limit my exposure to evil influences, but I see it´s wrong to try to blame myself everytime somebody on the internet puts something inappropriate.
I should NOT have to go to confession every time someone posts something inappropriate, and my eyes happened to see it. If I posted it, yes, then I should repent, go to confession. It sounds like you are already doing everything in your power to avoid evil. So, please don´t get stressed out of a sin that isn´t even your own!
Concerning ourselves with our own sins is quite sufficient.
I have “blocked” people, “unfriended”, but that, and just avoiding sites that are known for negativity, is about all you can do.
Please stop beating yourself up about this. Realize this is about THEM, NOT you!
I don´t think God wants us to be acting out of constant guilt and fear. If so, how can we ever be truly happy and love?
Do whatever you need to do in order to keep your sanity and peace of mind. Personally, I believe a person has a right to his sanity. If you need to get off Twitter for your peace of mind, then so be it.
I had to even limit my contact to the news, because I found it was depressing. I don´t even own a TV, now, but I’m sensitive in that way. Others can watch the news, even terror movies, and not lose their appetite, be totally unaffected!
Oh, and since I have gotten off Yahoo Mexico and stopped watching the news, it´s also made me a happier person. I get the news from others and people on CAF.
I watch other people freaking out of Ebola and all the rest, practically having panic attacks, but at least it´s no longer me!
Concern yourself with what you can change. Focus on yourself. Try not to worry so much about what everyone else is doing and saying. You will find that by changing yourself, you are also MORE likely to change others.
Christ told us not to be fearful.
