Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

The statistics are shocking in a societal lapse of biblical knowledge and understanding. Remember the news release about how more people can recall the Big Mac hamburger jingle quicker than reciting the Ten Commandments? Apostolic Messenger, Daniel, has an outstanding post with more in-depth study. Some of the responses would be humorous if they weren’t so deathly serious. An excellent read!

Biblical Illiteracy « Apostolic Messenger

One chapter or verse a day!  

Isaiah 28:9 To whom will he give knowledge? and to whom will he make clear the word? Will it be to those who have newly given up milk, and who have only now been taken from the breast? 10 For it is one rule after another; one line after another; here a little, there a little.

  1. It’s all because McDonald’s knows more about how people remember things. On the other hand if you asked “what are the ingredients in a Burger King Whopper” people aren’t going to get it right. We remember the big mac because of the jingle.

    If you want to see how poor people’s memories are of anything, watch are you smarter than a fifth grader.

    So if you really wanted people to remember the 10 commandments “how would you do it?”

    Perhaps it’s not so much how poor people’s memories are as it is what are set as priorities, and that would apply to how entertaining one thing is to another (Wasn’t “Have it your way” huge for Burger King?).

    Although the Ten Commandments were not given to “entertain” but to teach, and I do not subscribe to “tickle the ears” learning, there are many rhymes and abbreviations used to help in remembering the Ten Commandments. It’s all in what’s important enough to know.

    Thanks for stopping in and commenting! God’s Blessings.
