CNN’s religion blog recently ran a really interesting article about oft-misquoted passages of the Bible. I find it particularly fascinating because I grew up in a rather unique situation–though I am not particularly religious, all of my school friends (and when I say all, I mean ALL) were Christians. Wonderful people. Which meant that I often heard many of these same words on a day-to-day basis. Even I, someone whose knowledge of the Bible is limited to a purely academic sense, am guilty of taking some of these quotations as Biblical truth on occasion.
Check the article out here. It’s a really interesting and eye-opening read, particularly if you are at all interested in religion/language.
