Easter just passed and I can’t help but think of how much the Bible has influenced society.
If it wasn’t for the Bible, we wouldn’t celebrate our favorite times of the year, like Easter and Christmas (they have been commercialized and mixed with other traditions, but still).
Most of us wouldn’t even have our names if it weren’t for Bible.
My name – Kylah (spelled Kaila), Aaron, Abigail, Adam, Andrew, Anna, Ariel, Barack, Candace, Chloe, Christian, Claudia, Daniel, David, Diana, Elijah, Elizabeth, Ethan, Gabriel, Hannah, Jacob, James, Jared, Joel, John, Jordan, Joseph, Josiah, Julia, Leah, Lois, Lucas, Luke, Lydia, Mark, Micah, Michael, Nathan, Paul, Philip, Rebecca, Reuben, Sarah, Seth, Simon, Steven, Tamar, Thomas, Tim, and the list goes on.
And after your parents named you, a certain medical procedure was done to you if you’re a male, which came from the Bible. (… I’ll leave it at that).
Speaking of medical, I personally don’t think we would have the symbol of medicine if it weren’t for Moses’ story about healing via the snake on the pole.
We wouldn’t even have the most fundamental laws that keep us safe, which are founded on “thou shalt not kill, steal, lie,” and the rest of the 10 Commandments. Our businesses are even closed on Sunday because of the Sabbath day commandment.
And there’s so much more. If we took the Bible and its principles out of everything, society wouldn’t be left with much.
Your name might not be in the Bible, but it could be in the Book of Life. Learn more here.
