My Mrs.: Are you working on your Sunday School lesson while watching a Richard Pryor [documentary]?
Me: Naw, this is for my…Twitter thing.
I am not sure if that explained it, justified it, or even if it needs justifying (probably not; it is a good documentary). In the shadow of one of the greatest comedians ever to birth a chuckle, I scoured the web for some of the most hilarious Christian-based accounts Twitter has to offer. Popular hubs, followers, followees, lists, replies, retweets… a bajillion knuckleheads competing for 140 characters of your attention with lil’ ol’ me to find the diamonds in the rough.
There are some gems. You might already be following a few. Paul admonishes us “don’t hate; celebrate” when a sibling in Christ does well because we are all one body (1 Corinthians 12:25-26; Robert paraphrase). So expect eventual showcasing of very popular accounts with followers that surpass @BackRowOnline. We ain’t mad. Funny is funny. Sharing is caring.
For this spotlight, I would like to shine the… spotlight, …on a fairly new account with relatively few followers in the hopes that it will not remain “fairly new” or “relatively few” for long.

Robert Stevenson is a Jesus-loving goofball from Indianapolis who believes life is too serious to be so serious. He teaches Sunday School to middle schoolers, probably because he's as mentally developed as they are. He's a bit of a clown so he married a beautiful woman who's addicted to giggling. He actually sits close to the front row. Don't tell Matt. Robert enjoys SNES games, cantaloupe, sci-fi, biblical cross-referencing, shattering stereotypes, and speaking in the third person. YOU can contact him on Twitter @ap_527.
A collection of faith-based funnies for those who need a chuckle or two.
