You love Jesus, but don’t want to read his book?


When I was a kid, I LOVED Walt Disney! Not only did I watch every show and movie that I could get my hands on, I read every book about him that I could find, and I even did a report in school about him as well.  When I love something, I am all in! That is why as an adult I just can’t understand adults, who have been Christians for more than a year, who have not even read one-fourth of the New Testament, and only the parts of the Hebrew Testament that were also read to them by their pastor. It just boggles my mind! You love him, but you don’t want to know about him?  I do understand that the Hebrew (Old) Testament is tough, and most casual readers will need help understanding the more difficult passages, but how can you not be interested in the New Testament?   If you run into passages that you do not understand, feel free to ask me about them, but PLEASE read it!  If you feel like you just don’t have the time, at least listen to it.
