The worst Facebook profile.


I came across this Facebook profile page and got a little interested in what was written. Some may think it’s one of the worst self profiles:

About X: I stand guilty in a court that rules over all humanity in justice. I am an adulterer; I am a lier; I am a thief; I am prideful; I am a glutton; I am a coveter… I am also guilty of enjoying the wrongs I partake in, so much so that I hate what is right and call it evil. I am wretched and filthy in the eyes of the Judge of all the Earth, and I know He shall do what is right and just.

I, just like all of humanity lost and in slavery to sin, deserve to slide off this world into the lake of fire and never know what it is like to look upon my Creator with love and joy on His face. Instead I will fall into the hands of a wrathful God who takes no pleasure in destroying the wicked but must do so as He is also perfectly just and perfectly holy; everything I am not.

But, the Judge has done something tremendous. He sent His Son, conceived by His Spirit and born of a virgin, to take my sin and bear the wrath of the Judge that was due me. This Son, Jesus, then resurrected by the power of God, gave me His perfect righteousness and obedience in exchange, and became my perfect lawyer, presenting me before the Judge as acquitted. Why me?

You are righteous, I am not. You are holy, I am filthy. You are loving, I am arrogant. You are mighty, I am weak. You are perfection in totality, I am imperfection in total depravity. I will never understand, apart from His unconditional love in election, but I stand acquitted and holy before the Judge of all the Earth. I am a sinner, who is covered in blood.

Much as many may think this is a bad self profile, I think it is one of the best. It points to the gospel message of grace to the wretched sinner and the kindness and mercy of a Holy and Just God.

    It is an interesting profile but the second half is missing – who we are in Christ.
