Neither shall you
allege the example of the many
as an excuse for doing wrong.
— Exodus 23:2
popular as they may be in contemporary
culture, social media (especially Facebook and, Twitter) have
only one psychological purpose: to brainwash users who seek approval and acceptance from
others. In your desperation to get approval, you are drawn into an evil breeding ground
for pride and lust, as well as for lies, fraud, anger, rudeness, hostility, hate, bullying
of anyone you don’t like—and illegal censorship—and so you are drawn away from developing
contemplative love for God. Note carefully that these evil behaviors, as Saint Paul
warned, will exclude a person from the Kingdom of Heaven (see Galatians
Although mainly benign in their early development,
mainstream social media have now become as spiritually dangerous as “playing” with a Ouija
Still, despite the warnings, most
Catholics refuse to listen.
“What’s wrong with these
“They corrupt your mind and lead
it astray by opening it to demonic influence—and
you won’t even be aware that it’s occurring.”
“That’s ridiculous. I use social media all
the time, and I don’t see anything wrong with it!”
“That’s what I just told
So, do you get it? We’re all in
danger of having our minds snatched by
evil, and most of us don’t even realize
it—even those who have already been snatched.
Still, you might say, “Oh, but I use social
media only to communicate with family and friends. I don’t engage in political hate and
bullying.” But by using these media even “innocently” you are bolstering the membership
count of the media, and their membership count increases their advertising revenue.
Consequently, even your “innocent” use of the media increases their power to work evil
in the world. This amounts to your condoning sin, and condoning sin is a mortal
So, are you willing to listen to the warning?
Well, most Catholics aren’t willing.
And there’s the problem. Our culture has
been taken over by diabolical powers of hate; hatred is evil, and evil cannot be fought
with politics. There is no crime that is beneath the “dignity” of a demon. The only force
that can overcome demons is love for God manifested in lives of
spiritual purity, and so that must be the primary weapon on the
battleground against evil. Only with spiritual purity can anyone recognize the fraud and
the lies that assault us constantly and that, to save our souls, we must be willing to
Sadly, those who are willing to fight such a
battle today are few and far between; the smoke of Satan has filled the Church, making it
lukewarm and filled with hypocrites. Even most priests today
are incapable of engaging in such a battle—that is, they are untrained or unwilling, or
both. The world is on the slippery slope to doom, assaulted by the deep State and the deep
Church, and only those who
seek the spark of truth in the darkness can avoid being
snatched by demons.
