How would YOU present the Gospel on Twitter?

JD Greear posted on his blog this morning about a certain Christianity Today article where Rob Bell was asked to present the Gospel on twitter.

Question: How would you present the gospel on Twitter?

Rob Bell: 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 bigger—those tiny little slivers may in fact be connected to something really, really big.

Naturally, JD was a little upset about his response, so he answered the question for himself…

Question: How would you present the gospel on Twitter?

JD Greear: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in HIs blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness… so that He would be just and the justified of the one who has faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3:24-25)”I determined to know nothing among you but Jesus Christ, and Him crucified…” (1 Cor 2:2). “For I delivered unto you as of first importance that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and that He  was buried, and raised again…” (1 Cor 15:3-4)

While neither of them were in the Twitter range of 140 character [(Rob was at 580 while JD was at 654), so they would have had to use a couple of “tweets”], I’ll weigh in on the conversation as well.

Question: How would you present the gospel on Twitter?

Jordan Muck: A God/man named Jesus Christ came into the word through a virgin and lived a perfect life w/out sin.  He was crucified on a cross, died, and rose again on the third day.  He conquered death once and for all by giving himself up on that cross and shed His blood as a sacrifice for those with sin (the human race).  Furthermore, now God gives us a choice to either believe/accept that Christ is the Son of God and gain eternal life through faith by confessing with our mouths and believing in our hearts that Jesus is Lord, dying to ourselves daily to become more like Him (Jesus) or we can choose to reject Jesus, remain in our sinful state forever, and embrace an eternity in Hell in the absence of Christ.

677 characters…  whoops

What about you?

How would YOU present the Gospel on Twitter? (i.e. 140 characters or less)…
