10 Signs You’re Not Reading Your Bible Enough

  1. You really can’t remember if it was Moses or Noah that took the animals on the ark.
  2. You fall for the old preacher’s joke, “Turn in your bibles to the book of Hezekiah,” when there really is no book of Hezekiah.
  3. You think the old saying “cleanliness is next to godliness” is actually a verse in the Bible.
  4. The preacher announces the sermon is from Genesis and you have to check the table of contents.
  5. You think Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego are 3 of the 31 ice cream flavors at Baskin Robins.
  6. You’re just sure that “Do not dance” and “Do not gamble” are two of the ten commandments.
  7. You notice that your bible that you’ve had for the past twenty years still feels and smells new.
  8. You think Hercules was an Old Testament judge.
  9. You believe absolutely everything that the newspaper and television says, but you question the truthfulness and reliability of the Bible.
  10. You say, “So that’s where it’s been,” when your discover your bible in the same box as your old high school year books.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. ~ 2 Timothy 2:15

    Ha ha ha….this is awesome!! And so true!I especially like #9, some of my kids are struggling with that. Are the things you post on your website the same as your Sunday sermons? Because I’ve seen several comments about how good your Sunday meetings are.

      Debbie … most of the stuff I post is different than my sermons. You can find my sermons by clicking the bottom of the 4 buttons on the far right of the screen.

  2. Adam Faughn says:

    My favorite one that I’ve ever heard was, “If you find your son reading Song of Solomon and ask him ‘Where did you find this trash?'”

  3. Brett Henderson says:

    A friend of mine always said, “If your Bible is in bad shape, your life probably isn’t.”

  5. Genna Alicandro says:

    Crazy to see that today is music…I was on the laptop last night researching songs for the ceremony! I’ve got them all but for the processional which I’m leaning towards if you run by the boxer rebellion. We arent keen for a traditional’ song but my fiance is so blase about this part…any ideas out there?

  6. Jo Baird says:

    How about this one, you look in your Bible and see a bulletin or a note you lost dated 6 years ago? I haven’t done that but know people who have.

  8. I once asked the congregation to home and in the afternoon and read Mark 18 for the evenings lesson.

    When we assembled again, I asked by a show of hands who read Mark 18; some laughed, but some held up their hands.

    After seeing hands raised I told them the evening lesson would be on lying.

  9. John Williams says:

    You believe the statement that The Epistle to Barnabas contains Paul’s best advice on evangelism.
