Have You Actually Read The Bible?.......
Cindy and I were talking over dinner last night, and the conversation turned to some of those incredibly interesting stories in the bible. These stories always have deeper meanings than appear on their surface, and contain timeless lessons for those who ponder them.
I wondered aloud how many people have actually read the bible cover to cover. The more I thought about it, the more interesting that question became. I mean, here we have this book of deep, deep wisdom.....and my guess is that 95% of American adults have not read it in its entirety.
OK, OK---maybe I'm not talking about the "begats" and some of the esoteric stuff in books like Leviticus.....but I am referring to the bulk of the Old and New Testaments.
I saw a poll that was done a few years ago where 80% of Americans call themselves Christians. How can that truly be if I am right and 95% haven't read the bible?
