The Bible Network
Kids' Radio plays out the value of reading Scripture in three acts - a game show called “Who's the Real Sheep,” a crime drama “BSI: Bible Study Investigation,” and an intensive training regime called “Bible Boot Camp.”
Kids Radio presents a show called The Bible Network. It consists of three sketches to show the importance of the Bible. The first is a game show called “Who's the Real Sheep". Its goal is to answer a question posed by a listener; "A friend says that all one has to do get to heaven is to follow the Ten Commandments. Is this true?" The game show sketch presents five guests, four being false prophets and the fifth being the real deal. The contestant must figure out the difference by asking each member of the panel questions. Based on each response and the use of her “Ask the Bible” help, she deciphers which member is the real deal.
In the second sketch they address the comment “Sometimes I don't like reading the Bible because it reminds me of all the things I'm doing wrong”. The second sketch is called Bible Study Investigation (BSI): Danny's Apartment. It presents several cases, and each case is resolved and has a Bible verse connected to it. It reminds us that all scripture is inspired by God and is good for exposing our sin.
The final sketch looks at the question "My friend says that we can do whatever we think is right. What should I do?". Connie explains that the Bible is our source for determining what is right. The final sketch illustrates this through Bible Boot Camp. Three men take on the challenge of Bible Boot Camp. They study the Bible day in and day out. They have thirty days to show how Christ-like they've become. At the end of the thirty days, they are informed a winner will be determined. The sergeant falls into a well, and two of the three don't want to help him. The third insists and when questioned about why he helped, he quoted scripture and said he was living out the scripture. The third man was declared the winner for being the most Christ-like.
Connie concludes that if the word is inside of us. It teaches us to be righteous people.
