Rembrandt flash mob, how to use social media for Jesus, and snowflake

The last few days has had some heavy duty discernment stuff that leaves a bad taste in my mouth, so here is some fun stuff.

This essay was very helpful! I recommend it.

The Who, What And When Of Social Media
"Now, the Bible never talks about social media. Not one word. But it is full of principles that we need to apply to our social media habits. Without these guidelines, our social media use devolves into an unhelpful, “the hashtag for Twitter and Twitter for the hashtag” scenario (1 Cor. 6:13). It’s not enough to use social media the way it was meant to be used; it’s designed by people without God. How can we redeem our use of this form of communication so that it becomes a tool for Christian service and worship?"

This next set of events happened back in April of this year. I love creativity!

Rijksmuseum Renovation Brings Back Masterpieces By Johannes Vermeer And Other Dutch Artists
"The Rijksmuseum, the National Museum of the Netherlands, is finally set to reopen to the public, with Rembrandt van Rijn's masterpiece "The Night Watch" reclaiming its place of pride. The giant painting hangs in the same central position it did before an epic, decade long, (EURO)375 million ($480 million) makeover, flanked by works by Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen and thousands of other Dutch cultural and artistic artifacts."

In order to celebrate the re-opening of this wonderful museum, they staged a flashmob who re-enacted the events in Rembrandt's famous "Night Watch" painting. It's really good, see:




Here are a couple more stories about the flashmob.

Imagine, God makes every snowflake different. If one snowflake is this beautiful, how gorgeous will heaven be?

But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9)

  1. At what point do you think the Antichrist will rule the world? According to the first post I read from you, we could be sitting here at our computer one moment and then taken up to heaven in the next moment. So where does the antichrist, and the killing/persecution of the saints fit in your rapture theory? If you think the Bible is correct, then isn't it wrong to assume that any true believer would be leading a normal, comfortable life at the moment of Christ's return? The persecution of saints is certainly described in great detail in the bible.

    1. 'your' "rapture theory"? Am I going to be throwing pearls before swine if I answer your questions? (Matthew 7:6). Or did you ask them from a position of genuinely wanting to know, from the bible?
