SCRIPTURE

5And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.

~Deuteronomy 6:5-7, NLT

QUOTE

If we’re talking about country at large, biblical literacy is almost nonexistent. If we are talking about the evangelical church, it is barely existent.

~Woodrow Kroll

my thoughts red

The following statistics come from a LifeWay Research study: of those who attend church regularly only 19% read their bible every day; 26% read the bible more than once per week; 14% read it once per week; 22% read it once a month and 18% rarely ever read the bible. This survey was taken from people who attend church weekly. Can you imagine what the numbers would be for those who seldom or never attend? America is biblically illiterate.

Joe David and I have promoted daily bible reading for several years but I admit we slacked up this past year. The statistics above are disturbing and shocking. We must do better. Only Jesus can open blind eyes and soften hard hearts. “Father, I pray in Jesus name to give our people a hunger for the word.”
