"People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson
I'm not against any of these things, I just don't know nobody and well single minded as I am, I only have room for one thing at a time.
I have a Blog. Please visit!

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life!
That is probably part of it with me too. I currently moderatate or admin on 4 other Christian boards, as well as a couple of other boards. I also administer a prayer list. All of these require some attention. One more thing is really one thing too many.
....oh wait. I forgot I was supposed to be[RANT] ranting against the plage that is MeSpace and Space Book![/RANT]
I'm a no facebooker too!!(age 14 though(not lying!)) I don't do it for the simple reason of spending to much time on it. When my sister got it I saw the effects. mabey someday...
btw you all are way too funny
I like FB cuz most of my family is on it. I love playing fish world and farmville. I'm totally addicted to farmville. Hold on, gotta harvest my strawberries lol. I also use myspace to talk to my friend who is serving in Iraq. So I think they are very usefull tools.
I can think of no more stirring symbol of man's humanity to man than a fire engine. ~Kurt Vonnegut
I didn't "get" facebook at first, but then I realized how much more connected I was with my family that are so far away, and I got to "know" other church members and how to pray for them better through it.
I do update my status...usually it's something funny my kids said or did because my extended family really like seeing what's going on since they aren't around them. And I like seeing what they're up to as well; it makes me feel connected even with the distance. It's also the quickest way I know of to get hundreds of people praying...much faster than phone calls or even emails.
I wasn't going to do facebook, but my kids are on it and they all live in different states. I love the chat on there so I can chat with them all at the same time. I also get to see pictures of my grandchildren as soon as they are posted.
I've been been in touch with people that I haven't seen in years and that has been nice as well.
I realize the question was who has not joined facebook...sorry!

I don't facebook or twitter -- I got something called a life that keeps sucking all of my free time

Sometimes something good happens. I recently found my one time best friend. He was the one who brought me to church and prayed with me when I invited Jesus into my life. I had lost contact with him for almost 2 years now. Luckily him and his wife got a FB account and we were able to get connected again. Last night he even told me how it was such a great time for it to happen. He is in the process of making a big decision in his life, and was so grateful for my input and prayers.

Romans 12:19 Don't seek revenge ... give place to God's wrath. For it is written "Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord"
And every blow of the rod of punishment, which the Lord will lay on him, will be with the music of tambourines and lyres; And in battles, brandishing weapons, He will fight them
