Is It Any Wonder? Where's Our Priority?
An estimated 75 million adults (42%) said that reading the Bible is very important to them . . . but less than 50% of Americans can name the first book of the Bible.
Then, of those 42% that said they read the Bible, the average amount of time they spend reading their Bible is less than 7 minutes a day.
And yet, the average person spends almost 5 hours a day watching TV.
Is it any wonder the condition we find ourselves? The condition of the church?!
