    Thought this would be some fun, here are some random twitter posts from 10different pastors. Seven of these guys are still living and are often discussed here on BB. The other three have gone on to glory. The majority should be household names. Please respond with who you think each is (no cheating please) and based solely on the content the top three that you would prefer to sit under. The answers will be announced at a later date, and the winner will receive an official BB Lighted Keychain that I received when I hit 750 posts.:tongue3:

    Pastor #1

    Some people won’t like you simply because of God’s blessing on your life. The more favor you have, the more opposition it’ll stir up.

    You may have had negative baggage passed down to you. But you can put an end to it. Turn off the negative genes.

    Speak favor into your future. Declare that you will fulfill your destiny. Your best days are still out in front of you.

    Pastor #2

    As a pastor, I know I will have to give an account for the people under my leadership (Hebrews 13:17).

    Compromised truth has no hope of rescuing the eternal souls of men and women

    I can’t understand people who go to church on Saturday nights so they don’t “mess up” their Sundays

    Pastor #3

    Pastors: Encourage you people to go see #SonOfGodMovie this afternoon,

    I named my bed "The Word" so many nights I spend 7 hours in the word!

    Innovation is often just a matter of asking the right question. Why? How? What if?

    Pastor #4

    Whether rags or riches, nothing escapes Him who sits by heaven’s treasury and sees what we give. Whether mite or much, it is the spirit that glorifies the gift.

    We are so to abide in Him that we are not empty pitchers to be filled but fountains with the channel clear and the stream ever flowing.

    Our fitness rests on the authority of God’s Word, but the authority of His Word is not dependent on our fitness.

    Pastor #5

    Sorry for delay (DVR) but man that John Mayer / Keith Urban “Don’t Let Me Down” - fantastic!

    Everything changed… the day I became more afraid… Of missing out Than messing up

    God will always leave several things in my life that aren't working so I can work through them with Him.

    Pastor #6

    God is always working to destroy our self-righteousness & self-confidence, that we might rely upon Christ's virtue & the merits of Calvary.

    We arrived in Brazil this morning & tomorrow morning I begin to preach. I have slept 2 hours in the last 38 hours. In need of prayer & sleep

    Preach 2x yesterday. Last night there were 9000 in attendance. I preached on the heinous nature of sin before a holy God. Pray for tonight.Follow up Tweet: The reason for mentioning 9000 was not to boast, but to communicate the urgency of the need and the reason why I am in such need of grace.

    Pastor #7

    God can turn your BITTER into BETTER!!

    Is there any ice better than crushed?

    Say “no” to the good, say “yes” to the best!

    Pastor #8

    "Satan wants to cripple me and then blame me for limping."

    "I traced my family. We go all the way back to a crooked farmer and a drunken sailor— the farmer was Adam and the sailor was Noah."

    "The more I learn about Jesus, the more I love my wife."

    Pastor #9

    If your belief permits you to mistreat you are guilty of misbelieving as well as misbehaving.

    Parents: Discipline with the goal of preserving your relationship, not your reputation.

    If Jesus feared guilt by association, he would have stayed in heaven.

    Pastor #10

    Half our fears arise from neglect of the Bible.

    I have a great need for Christ: I have a great Christ for my need

    You cannot slander human nature; it is worse than words can paint it.

    P.S. This was a fun exercise, and I spent a lot of time doing it. So unless there is some unknown reason you have me on ignore then please participate.

    I guessed [apparently wrongly] that this was about Charles Spurgeon - and that would fit #10.

    >> I got a commemorative beer stein for my #1000th post. :smilewinkgrin:

    You are correct. The Prince of Preachers is #10.

    I imagine you early BB members did get better gifts prior to the economy tanking. :tongue3:

    Okay #4, #7, #8, and #9 have not been correctly identified.

    Vance Havner and Andy Stanley are two of the four.

    Clues for the other 2:

    One of these pastors is a Jr.

    One of these pastors was a past president of the SBC.

    Hm ...

    Wonder if we could identify biblical address of obscure verses as well as some here can identify mere men! :rolleyes:


    (BTW: The thread belongs elsewhere.)
