YOUTUBE DISCUSSION
Literal Songs at Costco

Video:
http://goo.gl/JjSFw

Topic:
Understanding the Bible

Bible:
Ephesians 5:19-20; Hebrews 4:12

Discussion Starter:
This clip from Ellen gives us an example of what would happen if we lived out Ephesians 5:19– really, really literally. Paul instructs Christians to speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit.

Imagine how weird it’d be if we communicated purely by quoting lyrics from songs? Life would get really weird really fast because songs are usually written poetically and not how we normally talk to one another. (And sometimes it’d be really cool, just like in the video!)

Want another one? Read Hebrews 4:12 and imagine how that would play itself out if taken very literally. Imagine your Bible jumping up from your desk, walking around, and slicing people up.

The point is that it’s not just important to read the Bible, it’s also important to understand what the Bible says. (Or doesn’t say) So we can’t just focus on reading, we have to also learn how to understand what God is saying to us through His Word.

3 Questions:

  • What would be a funny song to act out literally at Costco?
  • Have you ever thought about what it’d be like to be an eyewitness to some of the stuff in the Bible? What would you like to have seen?
  • Have you ever misunderstood the Bible in a funny or gross way?

Chew on this:
If we can’t take everything in the Bible literally and everything in the Bible isn’t a poetic song, how are we supposed to know the difference?
