I do agree with what George just said.
George, do you even know about the Bible? Even you've been reading it!!! Man, I have to say that I am very impressed by you.
I've been reading English Bible myself. So... I know how hard it is to read the Bible in Enlgish and in Korean.
I have to say... reading the Bible will be benefitial for many perspectives (i have no doubt about that) but, the phrases and vocavulary are quite out of date.
Even, if you meet an individual using some Korean phrases and vocab from the Bible, you will would look at him/her wonderingly.
Learning new language should be fun and interesting.
That's the first step! I mean... learning language means you have to work on 4 perspectives - in reading, in listening, in speaking and in writing. all those four are equally important.
I don't want to be a geek.
I don't want my children to be geeks (I haven't got merry yet).
Therefore, I don't want KoreanClass101.com listeners to be geeks.
After he/she becomes an advanced-Korean learner, then I do agree with you - reading the Bible is 100% good.
Reading the Bible is good! When I learned English, I read and listened to the Bible.
But... it was because I was a believer. That's totally different for non-believers.
I wanted to read and know about the Bible because I was a believer.
If you don't like 'love-story' movies, are you interested in watching and litening to them? The issue related with the Bible is much more complicated. Trust me on that!
We have to be careful with it.
Even I am a believer, I don't want to teach it because the Bible is not a comic book that I can easily or simply say about.
I hope you understand my point.
Don't suggest people to read the Bible. If someone says or mentions about the Bible, then you may suggest it. Wait for people. Meantime, what you can do is... show your love for people, treat people with full of compassion, love and care.
Maybe.. you would fail persuading people but still keep 'breaking the wall' not mentioning about the Bible but showing your love in action.
That's my call.
I think you would have different idea. I understand it.
Enjoy learning Korean and live with passion!
