Sunday I'm talking about how our fear of the LORD fuels our desire to be in His word and therefore I was digging around my files on Bible study. I came across a stat from George Barna that blew me away. First of all he said that only 54% of Protestant adults read the Bible outside of church during any given week. And if you think that is bad, I think the number within the Catholic community was like in the 20's. Pretty sad if we really believe the Bible is from God.
But what really caused me to raise my eyebrows was when Barna pointed out that Mormons (67%) are more likely to read the Bible during the week than are Protestants - even though most Mormons do not believe that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God.
Are you kidding me? We supposedly believe it's the authoritative word of God and yet only half of us pick it up during the week. Please tell me you've read your Bible today. I think God has something He wants to say.
