Omniscience in 140 Characters

omniscience(

Can you capture the incredible omniscience of God in 140 characters or less? It’s like trying to empty the ocean with a teaspoon! But give it a shot. It will force you to be concise and precise in your doctrine. It’s called Twitter Doctrine.

So here?s how it works:

  • Today?s doctrine is THE OMNISCIENCE OF GOD.
  • If you use Twitter, post a Tweet that explains this glorious doctrine. Put the tag #systheol on the Tweet so others can find it.
  • If you don?t use Twitter, leave a comment explaining God?s omniscience in 140 characters or less.
  • Spread the word by hitting the ReTweet button at the bottom of this post.

Sovereignty in 140 Characters

Can you capture some of the mystery and majesty of the sovereignty of God in 140 characters or less? It’s like trying to capture the wind in a thimble. But give it a shot. It will force you to be concise and precise in your doctrine.

So here?s how it works:

  • Today?s doctrine is THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD.
  • If you use Twitter, post a Tweet that explains this glorious doctrine. Put the tag #systheol on the Tweet so others can find it.
  • If you don?t use Twitter, leave a comment explaining God’s sovereignty in 140 characters or less.

The Incarnation On Twitter

Last Friday I invited my Twitter friends to explain the glorious incarnation of Christ in 140 characters or less. Here are some of my favorite answers:

By @jxd:

Jesus=Word Who was God & was with God & humbled Himself & took on flesh. Fully God/fully man. A must 4redemption.

By @steeejei:

the Eternal becomes finite, the all-Glorious in human flesh, the unseen becomes seen, what the prophets longed for revealed to us.

By @JoelofCydonia:

The Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent is confined to one body, at one time, in one place to give his glory to beggars.

By @concisetheology:

Infinite glory births finite story. Born with skin, borne our sin.

My absolute favorite was by @EMcTwitty:

The ever eternal fills a lifespan. Invisible, infinite glory is revealed. Inexhaustible self-sufficiency hungers, thirsts, tires.

Thanks to everyone who participated. You can see all the responses by clicking here.

Let’s do it again tomorrow.

Systematic Theology on Twitter

twitter1

Several months ago the guys at the 9Marks blog had the great idea of asking readers to put the gospel into Twitter format (140 characters or less).

Wouldn’t it be great to do that with other great doctrines of the Christian faith? The glory of the scriptures is that they’re so simple a child can understand them, yet so profound we’ll never fully grasp them.

So here’s how it works:

  • Today’s great doctrine is THE INCARNATION (Jesus becoming a man)
  • If you use Twitter, post a Tweet that explains this glorious doctrine. Put the tag #systheol on the Tweet so others can find it.
  • If you don’t use Twitter, leave a comment explaining the incarnation in 140 characters or less.
  • I’ll post my favorites in a future post.

As John Piper says:

I find Twitter to be a kind of taunt: ?Okay, truth-lover, see what you can do with 140 characters! You say your mission is to spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things! Well, this is one of those ?all things.? Can you magnify Christ with this thimble-full of letters??

Let’s flood the Twitterverse with the glories of Christ.
