Tweets from Church

Sunday Lee Strobel spoke at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale. I'm a note taker, but this time I did something a little less conventional than scribbling in my notebook: I tweeted the main message points. Yep. Sent them straight to my Twitter account then out into cyber space to forever float around and hopefully land on the computer screen of someone curious about the resurrection.

twit-1 This was a pleasant surprise. I read Lee's book and was happy that both my kids did, too, when they were in their teens.


twit-3 Strobel is a polished speaker with a great sense of humor.


twit-5 Theories abound but history demonstrates that the Romans perfected a slow, torturous, cruel, humiliating execution. It was excruciating. The word 'excruciating' comes from the practice of crucifixion. The Romans were good at this and they liked it. They didn't leave men alive on crosses. 

twit-6 Accounts of the resurrection were in print and in circulation and were foundational in the establishment of churches very early.

twit-7 Again, tons of theories. Bottomline: empty tomb; no body.



twit-10 In a court case, how many witnesses are needed to establish the facts? I rest my case.
