Performer memorizes Bible books

In a time when you can have instant access to all the words of the Bible through an app on your smartphone, Tom Meyer has spent more than 10 years perfecting a rather quaint skill – learning the Bible by heart.

The 35-year-old says he now can recite 10 books from the Old and New Testaments. They include the entire book of Revelation, which he will speak aloud as a one-man show at 6 p.m. Sunday at Shoaff Park Baptist Church, 6151 St. Joe Road.

I cannot fathom the idea that memorizing scripture can be viewed as anything but good. The critical spirit in here is heavy. Pharisees

You memorize the Bible, but don't have faith, you're damned like the Devil.
You memorize the Bible through faith alone; you're damned by adding to faith.
You don't memorize the Bible, or even read it, but you're saved by reading a leaflet one time 30 years ago around a campfire.

Perhaps the Bible-unleashed, indeed, was Christianity's most dangerous idea.

How about being challenged by what this man is doing! How much Scripture do YOU have memorized? What are you working on right now? We can all grow in this area, I'm sure.
Thats right!

Using the Bible in evangelism is not about verbatim regurgitation.
Interesting description, and I agree. There are some who believe in using the word as some magical incantation through which sinners are born again before they are even convicted of their sins and enlightened by the Spirit. I don't see the NT preachers using the word like that.
