Isn't this amazing?

Hehe i think its funny well hell get a lot of followers XD
Good for him, it's a great idea, wish I had thought of it. Only disappointment for me is that he is summarising the bible, I'd prefer if it he tweeted all of it - wonder how long that would take?
There are 1189 chapters in the Bible, thus taking him 3.25 years to complete his summary
I must say that I've been thinking of taking on a challenge of this sort, but rather famous quotes.
If he's summarising it, he's not really Tweeting the Bible is he? That's a misleading headline. Good luck to him though. I agree it would have been more effective to do the whole book. I'm sure he would have found willing volunteers to help him.
I read months ago about a campaign called One Book, One Twitter where a whole book was going to be Tweeted. I can't remember what they picked. The idea was to get everybody on Twitter reading the same book and talking about it. Maybe this Bible project will spark similar discussion and sharing of ideas.
I'm obviously missing something here. Why would anyone want to turn the Bible into Twitter spam?
The whole book is available from any number of sites online, and there are any number of daily scriptures services, by email or RSS.
I keep coming back to Jeff Goldblum's character's line in "Jurassic Park"...
"Just because we can do it, does that mean we should?"
Have you seen http://twitter.com/thequotewhore ?
Good point I suppose people would be interested in seeing lines from the bible in their Twitter stream. It would be a little bit of spirituality amongst the mundane stuff they read there everyday.
Not before, although it would be a bit similar; I'd include who said that quote as well, though.
David, his profile says "96% of what I post are mine". Maybe you just get to see someone else's words quoted?
Yes, that's possible. But then there's the question of appropriateness, I guess. I mean, the Good Book says "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you."
Hard to know, really.
Like my previous stated, I wanted to post "famous quotes". I can't say that most of his quotes are famous, or even recognized.
I'm not religious myself, but I don't think communicating the message of the Bible to a broad spectrum of people is contrary to the Bible's teachings. Jesus himself preached his message to the people who were considered the outcasts of society at the time, i.e. the tax collector and prostitute.
Heh heh! Look here:http://is.gd/ej1cG
The entire bible on one tweet? Say it isn't so!
Very good, I'm sure that they will fix that bug in a hurry
Its not a good experience for him. :dunno:
“The Bible underpins so much of our culture” he said. “People like Shakespeare and Dickens made casual references to what we would now regard as obscure passages of scripture.”
i think he's not going to have lots of followers
somebody such as bro eli soriano has been doing it for years too.
I would not label it as "amazing." Its an easy way to get attention though.
Are you referring to http://twitter.com/BroEliSoriano ? A lot of his tweets are not in English.
Bro Eli Soriano is a Filipino preacher and as far as I know, he wants to spread the word of God in the Philippines' native language so that most of the people here in the country can easily understand what he is saying.
