Though I don’t recall ever doing it before, we had a Q & A session in our church bible class last night. We did it so that our members could ask questions about the Bible or any issue concerning the Christian life. I thought it went along pretty well. Perhaps we can do it again next Wednesday.
That reminded me of a cute article I saw years ago about children answering or giving their views on certain bible topics. I thought I’d share some of them with you today with the hope it will give you a chuckle or two and put a smile on your face.

Saying funny things about the Bible is not confined to children only, adults do it too. To name a few, one fellow said his favorite book in the Bible was the Book of Palms. Another, cited Paul’s Epistle to the Filipinos. Then there was a lady who said that the Wise Men found Jesus lying in his pajamas. Finally, when asked if he had read the Bible, one man said he had read it all the way from Generations to Revolutions. Reading and studying the Bible is a good thing. It’s one sure way for simple folks to acquire wisdom. That’s why David wrote: The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple, (Psalm 19:7) or as one church marquee said: “Read your Bible, it might scare the hell out of you.”
