99% of the time when people on twitter talk about the Bible it’s clear after 4 words that 1) they don’t know anything about the Bible and, 2) they shouldn’t be allowed within 50 miles of a Bible.
If you’re getting your Bible info from twitter, your ignorance is invincible.
Jesus came up and spoke to them. He said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’ (Matt. 28:18-20)
Jesus doesn’t need you to be relevant or powerful- he already has all power. He needs you to be obedient. He needs you to be a disciple. A real one.

It’s just another aspect of modern life that sickens.
“The ungodly world… are incensed in a mad mood against the church & the Kingdom of Christ in the world” – David Dickson
If people were 1/10th as interested in their spiritual well being as they are with their physical well being there would never be an end to the daily inflow of converts and there would never be an empty seat in any Church anywhere during any service.
