Don’t Teach Bible “Stories”!

by on


This is Ken Ham, president of the ministry behind the Answers Bible Curriculum.


I want to encourage parents, Sunday school teachers, and pastors not to teach Bible “stories” to their people. Now, what do I mean by this?

Well, in today’s culture the word “story” usually carries the idea of “fairy tale.” When we teach stories from the Bible, we can mistakenly give people, especially children, the impression that it is just a book of made-up stories or fables.

We need to teach people that God’s Word is a book of real history! Our faith isn’t based on made-up stories from a long time ago. The people, places, and events described in both the Old and New Testaments really lived, existed . . . and happened. Instead of teaching Bible stories, let us teach the biblical accounts as real history.
