Reverend Otis invites us to tweet our questions to his congregation

Yesterday I wrote a post about Rev. Otis Moss III from Chicago. He uses twitter during church. Perhaps aptly, he’s compared mobile social networking platforms as on-par with the printing press.

I thought that Twitter’s 140 character constraint would render it an ineffective tool for any congregation. So I tried to boil down the entire Bible into a single tweet. I sent it to Rev. Otis Moss III – @om3 – It went like this:

His reply:

@RckBeyondBelief actually funny… Just like the accident that created all order… Literal fundamentalist interpretation is always funny.

(Rev. Otis Moss III – @om3)

My reply:

@om3Well played. Though you are arguing for a ‘deist’ or philosopher’s god. That’s not the same as ‘Christianity’ or the Bible. Good reply!

(Justin Griffith – @RckBeyondBelief)

I heard that other people had some pretty epic conversations too. I saw some other attempts at 140 character versions of the entire bible. I laughed like a bastard. But it seems we may now have an even better opportunity.


So then I noticed that he does Twitter bible studies every Wednesday via Twitter. He’s been asking for people’s questions, and he’ll tweet the answers starting at 7PM (central).

Please use #TrinityNLL to join our Bible Study on Wed. @7pm we will answer your questions.

(Rev. Otis Moss III – @om3)

Do it! Here are mine.

“If humans are made in god’s image AND god is omnipresent, why don’t we look like universes? #TrinityNLL”

“Why does god hate gays but not slavery? Even in New Testament: 1 Timothy 6:1-2 and Luke 12:47-48 #TrinintyNLL”

“If god doesn’t believe in a higher power, is god an #atheist like me? #TrinityNLL”

“If god somehow impregnated the Virgin Mary, does that mean Jesus ‘knew’ his own mother? #TrinityNLL @om3- Jesus = a REAL mother hushmymouth”

Also, follow me on twitter (you know you like to click on things).

    It’s the reverse of hit-and-run. I get to ask some clever-clever question that I’m sure this theologist has never heard before … and he can then give some answer that serves his purpose and cements his spiritual leadership over his flock. I don’t get to say, “Hay, wait a moment. You didn’t answer my question at all. And what about Naomi?”

    I’ve always liked Dharma’s summary of the Bible from the TV show Dharma and Greg.

    “Old Testament: Don’t mess with God. New Testament: Be nice to people. There.”

    Oddly, Greg wasn’t satisfied, even when she pointed out all the time she’d just saved him…

  • My spouse and i ended up being so cheerful when Louis could complete his basic research using the precious recommendations he was given through your web pages. It is now and again perplexing just to possibly be handing out guides that some others might have been making money from. And we see we now have the blog owner to appreciate because of that. The explanations you’ve made, the easy website navigation, the friendships your site help foster – it’s many exceptional, and it’s really leading our son and us know that this article is pleasurable, which is certainly incredibly fundamental. Many thanks for the whole lot!

  • Thanks for your article. Another factor is that being photographer consists of not only difficulties in capturing award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in establishing the best video camera suited to your needs and most especially hardships in maintaining the grade of your camera. This really is very real and clear for those professional photographers that are straight into capturing this nature’s fascinating scenes – the mountains, the actual forests, the wild or even the seas. Visiting these amazing places surely requires a photographic camera that can live up to the wild’s harsh settings.
