What to do when someone says something theologically stupid on Twitter

keyboard

On any given day, someone is going to say something theologically stupid on Twitter. And by theologically stupid, I mean so nonsensically heretical that I get tempted to “can’t even,” or whatever it is the kids say these days.1

Yesterday, someone’s theologically stupid comments about the Trinity and the Bible blew up my timeline for a few minutes before everyone continued doing whatever it is they’re usually doing. I made one comment, mostly as a joke, then went on with my day. But aside from acknowledging (or not) the silly things people say, what should we do? Five things:

  1. Read it.
  2. Or don’t.
  3. Shut off Twitter.
  4. Pray the Holy Spirit corrects such nonsense.
  5. Go to bed.

That’s pretty much it.

  1. I’m 38. Therefore I am no longer with it and hip.
