5 Surprising Bible Misconceptions Christians Believe

Hi there friends, I have five quick questions for you. You just have to answer whether it’s true or false.

  • Number 1: Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating an apple.
  • Number 2: There were three kings who immediately visited the Messiah when He was born.
  • Number 3: Sodom and Gomorrah were husband and wife.
  • Number 4: Joan of Arc was the wife of Noah.
  • Number 5: The Bible tells us that money is the root of evil.

The answer to these questions

Alright, I hope you already have your answers with you.

So, the correct answer is that all these statements are false.

Yes, all these statements are false.

Adam and Eve didn’t eat an apple. 

The Bible didn’t tell us the exact number of Jesus or Yahshua’s visitors. They were not kings as well but wise men. 

Sodom and Gomorrah were not husband and wife but rather they are wicked cities that God destroyed. 

Joan of Arc was absolutely not the wife of Noah. Finally, the Bible doesn’t teach us that money is the root of evil, but rather it is the love of money that is the root of evil.

Biblical illiteracy

It is quite shocking how so many people got these basic truths in the bible wrong. What’s more shocking is that there are more biblical misconceptions and lies people believe and no one is correcting them!

According to recent surveys, in 2022, only 39 percent say they read the Bible multiple times per year or more. With the constant attacks on the Word of God, we will see this trend continue in the coming years.

Faith comes from hearing

Now, how can you know the truth if you don’t read the Bible? It is virtually impossible to get closer to God without studying His word. Not only that, but the Bible tells us that faith comes by hearing and reading the Bible.

We read Romans 10:14-17:

14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:

“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace,
Who bring glad tidings of good things!”

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “LORD, who has believed our report?” 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

As we can see, hearing the word of God by reading and studying it plays a major role in our spiritual life.

Yes, it’s true that more and more people are becoming less interested in the Bible. However, that doesn’t mean that you should, too. We can’t do anything about how others would respond to God’s word, but you and I have a choice. We can choose to study God’s word and let it transform us.

Read Your Bible course

That’s why I highly recommend you read the Bible from cover to cover. If there’s only one book that you should read in its entirety, then it should be the Bible! If you can devote time and energy to fictional books, science books, or any other secular books, shouldn’t you have more devotion and commitment to the most important book in the entire universe — the same book that holds the key to eternal life and principles on how to live a more fulfilling existence?

I want to help you further. In our Read Your Bible course, we have outlined an easy-to-follow and reliable bible reading plan that will guide you from Genesis to Revelation. On top of that, we have included life-changing reflections, explanations, and commentaries for each day you read the Bible.

So, if you want to start reading the Bible from cover to cover, our Read Your Bible course will surely help. I’m confident that you will surely love our course.

So, please do check it out. It could be the best investment of your time and energy that you’ll make today.

Alright, that’s it for me.

Again, I’m Joshua Infantado of Becoming Christians, praying that our Father in heaven would bless you with His truth, love, and grace. See you next time!
