King James Bible Beats Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga

Interesting article…

Evangelical Christians always seem to think they are being victimized by popular culture.

Well, FaceBook is popular culture and this seems to indicate Christianity is doing just fine…

The Bible beat out Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga for the second week in a row to remain the most-visited page on Facebook. Pretty impressive for a book that is often maligned as a stodgy, outdated rulebook.

Facebook users are flocking to Facebook.com/TheBible to show their love of Scripture, posting messages like “we know stars like Bieber and Gaga…but talk about someone who created the solar system…GOD.”

The timing for the popularity of the Bible’s Facebook page is particularly appropriate. This year marks the 400th anniversary of the most-published book in history, the King James Bible. While usage of the King James Bible has certainly waxed and waned during the past 400 years, its influence has reverberated across the English-speaking world and has permeated nearly every corner of culture. From literature to law, praise to politics, the King James Bible has shaped the way the world speaks and writes.
