Mark Driscoll, John Piper, and Twitter
Yesterday was Inauguration Day here in the United States. While the Christian community has been up in arms about this year’s festivities since Louie-Gate, many celebrated the Inaugural by watching the telecast or going about their usual daily ritual. Others, including two well known pastors, took to twitter and shared their thoughts on the day:
Praying for our president, who today will place his hand on a Bible he does not believe to take an oath to a God he likely does not know.
