Why it matters
If it has not already become painfully apparent, Americans, even good church going Americans, have NO clue whats in the Bible anymore. The Bible is labeled as boring, unnecessary, and hard to read. Which is not really true, but that is the excuse. But what would happen in a game show popped up that placed value on actually reading the Bible or going to a study? What would happen if people got excited about being part of a game show that reaches deep in the American religious roots and brings that heritage back out?
I would say that people would start thinking differently about the Bible. And America might actually have a bit of fun with the Bible instead of bickering about theology or trying to use it as a tool to tell everyone else that they are going to hell.
I think a game show involving Bible quiz could be a great unassuming way to fuel some Bible spirit in the Christians remaining in America.
Cheers to you Jeff Foxworthy!
