If you are a reader of our blogs you know what is presented is a good common sense approach about issues, not just hardcore biblical talk.  We try not to get too preachy or knock you over the head with a bunch of “thall shalt nots.” 

Do you really know what you say you stand for if it is in the name of God?  Read below:

I read an article published in USA TODAY that says 60% of Americans cannot repeat half of the Ten Commandments. There was a TV host who asked his audience to name the apostles. NO ONE could name one of them. There was a survey done of students who enrolled in a religion class and 1/3 of them could not give these people/events in correct sequential order: Abraham, the OT (Old Testament) prophets, the death of Christ and Pentecost. 

Approximately 20-25 million Bibles are sold in the US each year and about 92 percent of Americans own at least one Bible.  Why then don’t people know more of what is contained between Genesis and Revelation (The first and last books of the Bible)?  

All the people polled in these surveys were not non-Christians and that is what makes these reports sad.  If we say we love God, we need to know more about Him; I include myself in that statement.

I also remember when I was in elementary school before we opened any school book; we recited the Lord’s Prayer…each and every day.

By the way, what does your Bible look like?  Does it still look like you just bought it yesterday?

Take yours out because this is an open book test:

How many books are in the New Testament?  In the Old?

Who are the two people who went to Heaven but did not die?

Name the 12 Apostles and… all Ten Commandments.
