A pastor asked a class of Sunday School children, "Who broke down the walls of Jericho?" A boy answered, "Not me, sir!" Upset, the pastor asked the teacher, "Is this typical?" She replied, "I believe this boy is honest, and I really don't think he did it." The pastor went to the Chairman of the Education Committee. "I've known the boy and the teacher for a number of years," said the chairman, "and I just can’t picture either of them doing such a terrible thing." Aghast, the pastor went to the Chairman of the Deacons. "Pastor," said the chairman, "let's not make an issue of this. Let's just pay for the damage and charge it to our maintenance account.”

The Library of Congress recently conducted a survey which asked, “What book has most influenced your life?” The Bible landed in the number one position. Yet, during a typical week only 45% of American Christians read the Bible. Of the 45%, just 12% claim to read God’s Word daily. Fifty-five percent don’t even bother to open it once a week! With stats like these, the above story might be true. ~ What Americans Believe by George Barna
