Spiritual Manipulation

This post is to warn those who forward hoax Christian messages on WhatsApp or Facebook.

The following is one of those forwarded hoax Christian messages being spread on WhatsApp:
(I post verbatim.)

muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8 year old daughter. The girls were buried alive! then He reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE! The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed.The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says 'A man wearing shiny clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,' she said. She was interviewed on Egyptian National TV, by availed Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, 'This was none other than JESUS, because nobody else does things like this!', Muslims believe Isa (JESUS) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle. Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the Passion movie doesn't help! With Egypt at the centre of the media and education in the Middle East , you can be sure this story will spread.Christ is still turning the world upside down! Please let this story be shared. The Lord says, 'I will bless the person who puts his trust in me.' Jeremiah 17.. Please forward these to all on your list and GOD will reward you abundantly!!!!!!!!!!! Please finish reading before you do anything else right now. Read this to the end. My name is God. I know you will give your time for me. I love you and always bless you. I am always with you. I need you to spend 30 minutes of your time with me today. Don't pray. Just praise. Today I want this message across the world before midnight. Will you help? Please do not cut it and I'll help you with something that you are in need of. A blessing is coming your way. Please drop everything & pass it on. Tomorrow will be the Best Day of your Life. Send this to 14 friends in 10min. Tell the devil you are a blessed child of God and you have more to be thankful for than to worry about. We must go through the storm to appreciate the sunshine! This is a test to see who has more followers. God or satan. If God, forward to 14 people, if satan, ignore this! God is going to fix two things (BIG) tonight in your favor. Trust God.

My opinion about these messages:
God says do not use His Name in vain and the one who wrote this letter is using the Name of our God in vain for God did not say this.
It is spiritually manipulative.
It is turning people off from the Gospel of Jesus.
It is feeding the beast, especially when shared on FB where there is big business with these types of posts from people who make money from it.
And this story is a hoax, it is false.
Click here to read for yourself.

God calls people to Jesus through the Gospel message, not made up stories and not through spiritual manipulation in His Name.
For faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
Our blessings do not depend on whether we forward these types of posts or not.
We are blessed with all spiritual blessings because we are in Christ Jesus.
Please do not forward these type of spiritually manipulative posts.

This is posted in love only. Thank you for understanding.
God bless you in Jesus' precious holy Name.

P. S. Read more about these types of posts here.
