Most recently we've gotten into 1 Corinthians, and I'm stunned by what I see in chapter four after tweeting the first three chapters. Here it is, for your examination:
1Co1-Paul, Sosthenes, to Corinth christians. Don't split; be one. Follow Jesus, not men. God chooses foolish, weak, to shame wise, strong.
1Co2-Paul's words weren't persuasive, but God confirmed them. Now God's Spirit reveals a Wisdom to the mature, who have the mind of Christ.
1Co3-Self-ID'ing w/ church leaders (mere servants, each doing their job, 1 in purpose, not function) rather than Christ is immature/worldly.
1Co4-Think of us leaders as just servants of Christ. So don't favor any human leaders. Except me; I have power they don't.I've tweaked chapter four's tweet a bit to make it more palatable to the masses, to say:
1Co4-Think of us leaders as just servants of Christ. So don't favor any human leaders. Still, imitate me, not them; I have power they don't.I don't really think that's what Paul intended to say, but it seems to be what he's saying.
What about you? If you were condensing these four chapters down into 140 characters (including the chapter reference), how would you phrase it?
