(Newser) – If you want to make sure you know about Christ's second coming the moment it happens, better get on Twitter and Facebook. The Rev. Franklin Graham says social media could play "a big part" in Christ's return, because the Bible says that "every eye" will see it, he told Christiane Amanpour on ABC's This Week yesterday. "How is the whole world going to see [Jesus 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," he said.

Graham, son of well-known evangelist Billy Graham, pointed out that social media has played a large role in the uprisings going on around the Arab world. "Everybody's got their phone out and everybody's taking recordings and posting it on YouTube or whatever and sending it to you, and it gets shown around the world," he said. He added that he does believe "we're in the latter days of this age" and the second coming is near, notes Aol News. Click for more, including Graham's thoughts on the 2012 presidential contenders.
