Does It Matter

There is a first time for everything.  This is the first time I am going to strongly recommend that you read something other than the Bible.  I just read a great article on Fox News, “Does the Bible still Matter in 2012?”  I would highly recommend reading it.  I would also recommend perusing some of the comments.  Do not spend a lot of time on that it will probably discourage, frustrate, or anger you.  Essentially the comments validate the report.
Annual survey indicates American thoughts about the Bible.
One of the points made is toward the end of the piece:
When survey participants were asked what frustrated them most about reading the Bible, the most oft-cited response was that they “never had enough time to read it.” The busy-ness of our lives often make it difficult for us to follow through on what we say we value.
As I have said elsewhere in this blog that is dead on.  John Eldredge and others have identified busy-ness as the spirit of the age.  We do not make time for what we say is important.
