I believe biblical illiteracy is a major problem within the church today. I would say that it is THE BIGGEST problem. Those who claim to be believers really don’t know what they say they believe because they are biblically illiterate. The result: Our church doors have been flung wide open, allowing false teachers to enter the church and starve the people of the Truth. Sadly, we are sitting idle and watching it happen.

I am a Southern Baptist. I look around at my denomination and see churches struggling with doctrinal issues and moral issues all because of biblical illiteracy. It’s time for pastors and church leaders to step up and confront this problem. We must pour our time into our people so that we can raise up a generation of men and women who know the Scriptures. We must preach and teach the Truth of God’s Word faithfully. It is the only way we can combat the heresy that is creeping into our congregations at an alarming rate.

I don’t have all the answers to the woes of the church today. This I do know, biblical illiteracy is a major problem. If we do not deal with it, we will see churches continue to move further and further away from the Truth.

Do you agree that biblical illiteracy is a problem in the church today?
