It has become the platform for news from around the world, entertainment fizz, activism and faith and spirituality. Yes, religion has blossomed on social media over the years.

From inspirational faith Twitters to activists on religious Facebook pages and Instagrams, many are getting their daily dosage of religion by simply scrolling down their social network timelines.

Hall says people will post ‘inspirational quotes and ?#SundaySelfies at church with completely opposite messages the next day. Oh, our generation.’  ?

“God calls us to follow Him and walk in love. When we go outside of those boundaries (bashing, negative posts, profanity, re-posting videos), it immediately contradicts the love we claim,” Hall says.

Although Hall says seeing the contradictory behavior is more open on social media, she and others like 20-year-old, Dyniesha Saunders from Edmonton, Alberta, agree that it is important to have these messages on social media timelines.
