Rob or Paul? Twitter and the Gospel


If Paul could tweet the gospel, I’m positive it would look something like this: 

…Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures…

Rob Bell’s tweet, on the other hand, would look like this (so he says in this Christianity Today article): 

I would say that history is headed somewhere. The thousands of little ways in which you are tempted to believe that hope might actually be a legitimate response to the insanity of the world actually can be trusted. And the Christian story is that a tomb is empty, and a movement has actually begun that has been present in a sense all along in creation. And all those times when your cynicism was at odds with an impulse within you that said that this little thing might be about something bigger—those tiny little slivers may in fact be connected to something really, really big.

    I don’t even know what Bell is talking about. Neither does he, it seems.

    Bell’s quote reads like one giant run-on sentence, making no sense whatsoever!

    @ Sarah G – LOL, grammar should be the least of your concerns with Bell! 🙂

    @ Chris – some have referred to him as a fog machine…no wonder why.
