Stuff My Tweet Page Says

How Tweet It IsHey, if they can make a TV series from a blog with a word in its name that can’t pass the censors, I can compile some of the mindless and worthless aphorisms I’ve shared via Twitter.

But I won’t. I’ll just share a few of the ones that are less mindless and worthless.

  • Most of us Christians don’t mind cruising aboard the Fellowship. But we’re not even sure where the Discipleship is docked.
  • The depth of my theology rarely goes beyond, “Jesus loves me; this I know.” But then again, it rarely needs to.
  • If a sermon isn’t about Jesus or doesn’t point to Jesus, it isn’t ‘gospel.’ It’s just ‘spell.’ Gospel is good news. Don’t misspell it.
  • Have you prayed that God will speak powerfully through His servant – your minister – this (Sunday) morning?
  • Have you prayed this (Monday) morning that God will speak powerfully today through His servant – you?
  • keith_brenton is sure that even when he praises froggy-voiced and off-key, God can hear his heart sing like Caruso or Bocelli. “All things are possible.”
  • “It’s dry here, Lord. You send Your rain on the just and unjust. Surely we are one or the other. Amen.” – prayer during 1998 Abilene drought
  • I hate politics. More than that, I hate the hating which has become intrinsic to it. We need fewer politicians and more statesmen.
  • If the doctrine that “Biblical silence forbids” is proven solely w/Old Testament scripture, how can one also say the Old Law is passed away?
  • You have to understand God’s sovereignty or the reason for suffering or how literally to take scripture before you believe? Job didn’t.
  • If all week isn’t worship, then Sunday’s a sham. (Romans 12:1-2)
  • I will say I respect Stephen Hawking, who thought deeply on the matter and reached a conclusion – unlike millions who could care less.
  • Man’s arrogance leads to the conclusion that God has fully revealed Himself – and that we can fully comprehend Him. Why not “sufficiently”?
  • I scanned the land of brave and free/to restore its faith and history./The truth I found was hard to see:/what needed changing most was me.
  • If your ambition is to restore America, it’s too small (Matt. 28:16-20) & not personal enough (Matt. 5:14-16). Restore relationships to God.
  • Jesus didn’t require people to have their lives all straightened out before He fed or healed or loved them. (Or died for them.) Do we?
  • Like him or not, when was the last time you prayed for your President? 1 Timothy 2:1-2
  • I don’t want to be saved in the end. I want to be saved now.
  • Meditation on God’s word may not be transcendental, but it is transforming. It helps us realize that He wants us to change; become like Him.
  • keith_brenton wants for my reaction upon encountering a person for the first time to be: “There’s someone for whom Christ died!”
  • If you only teach the plan but not the Man, you’ll have converts to a system – not the Savior.
  • Shouldn’t churches be more concerned about finding the lost than losing the fault-finders?
  • King David was a seriously messed-up guy … but he always had a heart for God. I should be so messed up.
  • It’s no surprise that those who dispense criticism without grace usually have trouble receiving criticism with grace.
  • Too many churches teach behavior modification rather than Savior glorification.
  • If you go to a Church of Christ tomorrow, shouldn’t you reasonably expect to hear Him mentioned more often than just at the end of prayers?
  • C’mon, admit it. We all award ourselves platinum medals. Sometimes in events we don’t even compete in. Right?
  • Today, I am the gospel. I am part of Christ’s ongoing Story. It’s not enough to tell it; I must live it; BE it. It’s true for you, too.

That’s enough for now. Probably that’s enough for a long, long time.

      • you just said a mouthful, Laymond, and you didn’t even hear it.

        Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
