Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned from me and heard from me and saw me doing, and the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:8-9)
So we as believers keep wringing our hands together wondering why the church seems to be making little to zero impact on the culture. Then we act shocked and amazed when we hear about Christians acting just like the world around us.
But that's o.k., because when we grab a bowlful of chili and a fistful of Fritos and plop down in front of the T.V., all are worries temporarily go away. Yep, when we turn on the tube and cable-ize our cranium, life seems so much more tolerable.
Perhaps that is part of the problem. Every year, additional 'versions' of the Bible come out, and every year they are read less and less- and at the same time, the average person spends more and more time glued to the tube.
Let's face it folks, Christians in America are cable clever and Scripture stupid.
So here is a little article I came across that may motivate you check out the Bible more often:
Another way to think about the contents of the books of the Bible is by comparing them to modern day TV. If we think of the Bible as a Cable TV guide, we might compare some of the books to TV channels as follows:
Whoever wrote that has a good perspective on what Scripture is really like. Anyone who thinks the Bible is boring hasn't read it very much.
I would challenge you this summer to compare how much time you spend reading the Bible, and how much you watch the T.V. I guarantee that we all have room for improvement, and you will probably be amazed at the change in your walk with Christ.
