As many in the English-speaking world celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible–the most re-printed English translation even today, it is fitting that a reference to Scripture (Mt. 13.12) appeared as the headline on the two New York tabloids yesterday. The Bible is part of our culture–one of many reasons that it should be studied in the most secular schools.
“The Rich Get Richer” referred to the recent lottery win by some financial tycoons. They apparently plan to give some of the mega-millions away, which wouldn’t disappoint the source of the Scripture, who also said that the poor in spirit would be blessed–but who also said that in the fullness of time, “the rich would be sent empty away.” –J.
