Yesterday morning, I got a text from a coworker that read “#FourWordBible is trending on Twitter… I think it’s right up your alley.” Sure enough, I wasted about a half-hour online.
The trend consisted of Twitterers (Twitts?) summing up the Good Book in exactly four words.
To be sure, there were plenty of pro-Bible folks with cutesy things to say like “Unending love. Amazing grace,” “Let go, let God,” and “Jesus died for you.”
But don’t worry, the skeptics showed up for the party, too.
So far, my favorite is from @serenetwit:
