Sometimes I hate text forwards. I like the funny ones. And even some of the sentimental ones. Until I get to send this on to ten people or death and destruction shall befall you.
And the religious ones get on my nerves when I am told that I am being tested. I know my Heavenly Father loves me and cares about me but I really dont think he cares whether or not I forward a text message. I understand the scripture found in Matt. 10: 33 "But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." I firmly believe this scripture. But I also don't believe that if I fail to send one text message (or any of the hundreds I have received like it) that I will be doomed to hell. He tries and tests us. Of that I have no doubt but I really don't think that this is how He will decide our eternal fate. In fact I know it is not the yardstick He measures us by.
As for the other ones, they irritate me too. When I get a message saying that the one I am supposed to marry will kiss me tonight but only if I send this to ten people, it just gets on my nerves. And when I get the ones that tell how good of a friend I am by how many roses I receive I NEVER forward them. Does this negligent act make me a bad friend? I think not. And the ones which ask how hot I think the sender is get ignored too. Especially when they come from an ex of any kind. This is admittedly what annoys me most of all!
