Thou Shalt Tweet the Second Coming

And the Lord said, “Let there be social media.” In an interview with anchor Christiane Amanpour for ABC News’ This Week with Christiane Amanpour, the Rev. Franklin Graham said social media will be an important factor in the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Graham told Amanpour the world will record the return of Christ with cell phones and cameras, adding:

The Bible says that every eye is going to see (the second coming). How is the whole world going to see (Christ) all at one time? I don’t know, unless all of a sudden everybody’s taking pictures and it’s on the media worldwide. I don’t know. Social media could have a big part in that.

Just look at what’s happening in Libya or Egypt. Everybody’s got their phone up, and everybody’s taking recordings and posting it on YouTube and whatever and sending it to you, and it gets shown around the world.

The full interview will air on Sunday’s installment of This Week.
