Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., regularly tweets encouraging and Bible-based messages for his more than 892,000 Twitter followers and those individual messages are frequently retweeted thousands of times. But not everyone is a fan of Warren’s “Christian tweets,” including theologian, author and blogger Tony Jones.

“Look, Rick Warren stopped following me on Twitter long ago. So I stopped following him right back. Nevertheless, some people I follow occasionally retweet his pithy, axiomatic Christian tweets. He seems to be a Twitter proverb generator,” Jones wrote Thursday on his Theology channel.

The Christian author pointed his readers to the Rick Warren Tips (@Cantexplainhere) account apparently created on Feb. 14 to dole out “advice in the style of Rick Warren’s tweets.”

The parody account, not affiliated with Pastor Warren, has been credited to Stephanie Drury although she credited Andy Meisenheimer, Adam Moore and Mandy Meisenheimer for getting the “ball rolling.” The Rick Warren Tips Twitter account has been gaining a steady stream of followers, and tweets using a #RickWarrenTips hashtag.
