This morning on talk radio they were discussing a survey that showed more people knew all of the ingrediants for a Big Mac than knew the 10 Commandments.

Before you judge, go ahead an try it. Really. Try it.

I bet the first thing you did was sing the Big Mac jingle, right?! In case you're wondering:
"Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun."
(Yep, done WITHOUT looking it up).

Now the commandments?
Nope, got through about FOUR before I had to look them up. (Admitted with sadness and shame).

This just proves it - if they put the entire Bible to the Sponge Bob theme (or something equally annoying), we would all remember it.

Try it for yourself:

I. "You shall have no other gods before me.
II. "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand [generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.
III. "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
IV. "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

V. "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
VI. "You shall not murder.
VII. "You shall not commit adultery.
VIII. "You shall not steal.
IX. "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
X. "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

Enough said.
