Tweets & prayers: Social media spreads the faith in real time

I’ve heard of this elsewhere, but apparently the church we came from in Jacksonville has also gotten into the game.
I can’t say I’m surprised; they’ll do anything to draw a crowd except preach from something other than the KJV.

    I may use FB but have not gotten on Twitter. I see it as a redundancy.Trinity is trying to regain what they lost with the Bob Gray situation. They are trying to appear "hip and trendy" instead of being counter-cultural with the Gospel. I am equally disappointed with the music as well, but we know that has been on a downward slide for many years now.I think that it is disrespectful to use Twitter during a worship service. If something moves you that much, take out a pen, pencil or in some cases a crayon and write it down on a piece of paper and if you need to Tweet it, do it later and not during the service.Rant over… I am done for now!

  2. I love this line from your comment:They are trying to appear "hip and trendy" instead of being counter-cultural with the Gospel.That pretty much sums up the whole seeker-sensitive and emerg— movements, doesn't it?And what they end up with is large crowds of unregenerate people who often stay unregenerate.
