All of the numerous blog articles written all over the web in the past few days have generally been reactionary to the neo-Reformed writters who jumped the gun on Bell, and to the Twits in the theological world who tweeted stupid stuff like “Farewell Rob Bell” (I’ll let you guess who the Twit is who tweeted tat).
A Funny Mix-Up: And speaking of Twitter, apparently @realrobbell and @robbell are not the same person! By Saturday evening “Rob Bell” was among the top ten trending topics on Twitter. But here’s the funny part, according to Christianity Today:
Image a lone web designer somewhere in the U.K. becoming a tweeted sensation in a single day. He’s non-religious apparently and has no idea what’s going on; he tweets:
Dear Christians, I am not @realrobbell although I hear he does really great things. Please at least look before you ‘quote’ me as him
And later the Rob Bell web designer guy from the U.K. comments that our Rob Bell (the Love Wins guy) seems to be “a thoroughly good bloke”. But if that isn’t funny enough, our confused web designer tweets this hilarious comment:
Who is this @johnpiper and why is he denouncing me? Did he not like a website I designed?
Yes, I too almost fell off my chair when I read that!
