There's a new anonymous Twitter account that is doing the Lord's work - literally! @YeahThatsASin is a new Twitter account that has endeavored to answer peoples' (typically rhetorical) questions about sin. Is it a sin that I find these so hilarious? I hope not. Check out 15 of his funniest "judgments".
Most Vacation Bible School's go off without many hitches (never NO hitches, but often just a few). But every so often, a dark day hits a VBS and things go horribly, apocalyptically wrong. This is the War Diary of one such incident, recorded on the only available outlet of the author during captivity, Twitter:

Mommaaaaaaa.... I killed a maaaaaann.... OH! Sorry, hi there. Well, it's Mother's Day again. And that means that it's Sunday morning and you had forgotten all about it until the moment you walked into church and saw those big vases full of roses they're gonna pass out.
Now you have a decision to make. Do you pretend to have a stomach ache during service and quickly run to Walgreens while she thinks you're in the restroom with intestinal problems? Do you sneak into the kid's Sunday School room and throw together a homemade card like you did when you were a kid and risk getting glitter in your stubble? Or do you sit there and craft a beautifully worded Facebook post as her "gift" and tag her in it so she'll see it when she gets home and pretend that was your terrible plan all along?
How about none of those?!
Instead, after service (or DURING, if you are bold enough) serenade her with one of these special "Mom Hymns":
Happy Mother's Day!

What would happen if a few of the greatest secular rappers of all time found God and decided to flip their scripts? We imagined just a few:

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.
Say hello to The Sarcastic Pastor (@RevSarcasm):
We love to laugh! In fact, it's a main focus of our ministry! Laughter truly is great medicine and is certainly a gift from God! It's also great to poke fun at ourselves so we don't take ourselves too seriously and get all Pharisee-like. This year, we've had a lot of fun coming up with Hashtag Parties and other humorous excursions and we've been so excited when you've joined in the fun. Below are our Top 12 Laughs & Lists!
