Their name is legion. -- Mark 5:9
I find this to be the case of about 75% to 80% of the time with Christians. Most will only crack open the "Good Book" every now and then and only to designated spots governed either by the sermon they might have recently heard, or a "Daily Devotional" publication of some sort.
Rarely, do they REALLY get to know and understand this book they swear to live their life by.
I believe I have forgotten more about the Bible than your average Christian learns in a life time.
Yes. And that includes some people who claim to follow it too.
Yes .. I think they probably only read it while they were bored in a hotel room.
Many and TV preachers.
Least their better than spammers
I do. And i need to mention i dare to say more than 50 % of the whole population of religious people follow their religion along with unawareness and claim to know everything about it while they know nothing, they just filled by belief with blind eyes.
Yes many, and the explanations they give is so contrary to what the bible really teaches.
I would say nearly every christian that believes the bible as being inerrant or written by the people like Moses, have not a clue what the bible says or even means. Most haven't a clue how it developed and what it's purpose was. Here is an article addressing this issue.
Even though this is addressing the USA, I really think it goes world wide.
I know people who ACTUALLY know the bible, but they don't know anything at all.
Time to move on from Bronze Age myths.
I have not read the bible. I was playing Trivial Pursuit with an ex's family, who would frequently tell me things that are written in the bible. A question came up that none of them could answer, but yet I knew the answer. What are the first three words in the bible? When I told the answer, "In the beginning" they actually went and got their bible to check my answer. Imagine their embarrassment when they read those words..
Matthew 67:90 "To be or not to be, that is the question."
Well, I'll admit a few names come immediately to mind.
