I really do think prayer is good. And if someone you B2C Telemarketing List know is hurt and needs prayer, it's good to let others know about it so they can pray. However, many if not most of the prayer requests that require you to fwd to everyone you know are B2C Telemarketing List not true. Praying for hurt or persecuted Christians is good and absolutely necessary, but circulating a specific lie, is not. EXAMPLE: "URGENT PRAYER REQUEST!!! Please pray for 22 Christian B2C Telemarketing List missionary families that will be executed today by Afghanistan government. Please spread to others fast." There was an event in 2007 where the Taliban kidnapped 23 S.
Korean missionaries, killing 2, in order to try to B2C Telemarketing List negotiate with the hostages and to make the Afghanistan government release their Taliban prisoners. However, this viral rumor was broadly popular in 2009 and 2010, two and three years after B2C Telemarketing List the event, and had many of the details wrong. If I ask you to pray for a sickness that happened 3 years ago, and fabricate half of the details, is it honest, fair, or useful? WHY YOU NEED TO BREAK THE CHAIN While I wish the below graphic was true, there is actually a harmful effect from these types of messages. These B2C Telemarketing List messages are made by mockers A large portion of chain messages are crafted by people who do it to get a kick out of it.
Most of the email hoaxes and scares have been tracked B2C Telemarketing List back to a geeky kid with a computer and greasy hands (don't ask why). Many of these super conservative chain letters are made by super liberals to show the ignorance of conservative B2C Telemarketing List claims. Many of these Christians stories are made by atheists with the hope B2C Telemarketing List of mocking Christianity by showing how gullible we are. There rest are made and propagated by naive Christians that believe a lie. If a Christian starts sending false rumors out to everyone he knows, and doesn't check on their validity, this person mocks the very nature of truth.
