[May 21, 2023] It wasn’t that long ago when any child could tell you two or three Bible stories and give a few quotes. There was also a time, recently, when nearly everyone understood and appreciated the child’s storytelling and appreciated that even children could learn about greatness. That is not true anymore.
Our friends at PowerLineBlog.com (link here) highlighted a New York Times correction.
“An article on Sunday about hundreds of people who starved to death in Kenya after following the teachings of a pastor preaching End Times mischaracterized the Book of Revelation. It is a book, not a chapter, of the New Testament.”
The Bible is composed of “books,” which contain chapters and verses. It is of interest that the NYT’s writers did not know this. Maybe the “Book of Revelation” should have been a hint that this was a book.
“But such learning apparently has not penetrated the dark recesses of ignorance in the Times building.” – John Hinderaker, PowerLineBlog
Ignorance has no bounds. We are all born ignorant, but we must work hard to stay stupid. My apologies to Ben Franklin for butchering his quote, but you get the idea. Don’t surrender yourself to the easy path of ignorance like the NYTs has done.
