“Why are so many Christians biblically illiterate?”
The Bible is a diverse love story. Actually, it is the greatest break-up-and-get-back together story the world has ever known.
The message of the Bible is that even though we are not what we should be, God loves us, redeems us, and has a purpose for our lives.
I wrote an article for FoxNews.com “Why are so many Christians biblically illiterate?” and I wanted to share it with you. Unfortunately, we are living in unprecedented times of biblical illiteracy. I will never forget one of my graduate students who thought Billy Graham preached the ‘sermon on the mount’ (see Matt. 5-7 if you need a hint). We need to understand the reality of biblical illiteracy if we hope to reverse the trends.
I am delighted there is hope. I’ve just returned from an amazing experience in Santiago, Cuba with the Museum of the Bible: La Biblia: The Way of God in the Way of Man where rare texts and manuscripts from the world’s largest private collections of biblical artifacts are on display — all Cubans are welcome and invited — at the newly renovated 500-year old Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. I look forward to sharing more in the future.
Enjoy the FoxNews article and join me in praying for pastors, professors and Christians leaders across the country to lead the way in reversing the trends of biblical illiteracy.
So Blessed and encouraged by all the engagement the article has received through social media and on the FoxNews.com article page http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2016/02/10/why-are-so-many-christians-biblically-illiterate.html.
