Plus: Biblical illiteracy. It's a real concern. A Life Way study found that only 32 percent of Americans who “attend a Protestant church regularly say they read the Bible personally every day.” Evangelical Protestants faired a little better (36 percent), but not much. As one writer for the Gospel Coalition put it:
“God doesn't expect the same degree of biblical mastery from all his people. We’re not all called to be pastors or teachers. But we’re all called to know him, to hunger for him, and to commune with him. And other than prayer, there is no better way to know and commune with God than to hear his voice in Scripture. And this is the worst part of biblical illiteracy. When we neglect reading the Bible, we don't just miss knowledge, we miss God. We're privileged to worship a God who makes himself known to us in words. And we're doubly privileged to have almost constant access to those words.”
