Rob Bell tells Christianity Today that he cannot Tweet the gospel. There’s just too much there to fit into 140 characters. Here’s CT‘s question followed by his answer:
How would you present this gospel on Twitter?
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 biggerâ€”those tiny little slivers may in fact be connected to something really, really big.
His answer to this question is 580 characters, and His other answers to CT‘s questions combine to a total of 7,529 characters. Nevertheless, I don’t think that he has gotten the gospel correct in those either. What do you think?
