Our nation’s growing ignorance of basic Bible teachings scored some laughs one night on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno. As the silver-haired host circulated through his audience he sought responses to statements like “Name one of the Ten Commandments.”
“God helps those who help themselves,” someone ventured.
With raised eyebrows, Leno said, “Name one of the apostles.” No one could.
Finally he asked the crowd to identify the four Beatles. The answers rolled off dozens of tongues: “George, Paul, John, and Ringo!” people shouted.
Leno was joking around, this absurdity (no laughing matter) underscores what our research confirms: America is on the verge of becoming post-biblical.
