The Rev. Cedric Miller of Living Word
Christian Fellowship Church in Neptune, N.J., issued the mandate because

reconnected with an old love interest through Facebook. Miller said that 20
couples at his church have experienced problems because of misuse of the social
“What happens is someone from yesterday surfaces, it leads
to conversations and there have been physical meet-ups. The temptation is just
too great,” Miller told the Associated Press.
Miller gave church staff until last Sunday to delete their accounts. He also warned the entire church about

the congregation. Miller planned to delete his account last weekend.
Miller knows that some people will think his actions are too
controlling. But he is simply more concerned about saving families and
marriages, he told the Asbury Park Press.
