Bible or Not? Program Brings Bible to Families

Story by WGTS Staff

About the time listeners are picking up children from school or heading home from a long workday, many people play the game “Bible or Not” with WGTS' afternoon hosts Johnny and Stacey Stone.

It’s simple enough. Johnny gives three phrases and the participant (along with their family members in the car) can guess if the phrase is from the Bible or from another source, like a quote from a famous person. Stacey or another host can help you with a “lifeline” if you’re not sure, which always makes it exciting. Get all three correct, and you win!

“Although it’s a game designed for fun, the inspiration for creating it was to encourage
moms, dads, and their children to have conversations about the Bible,” says Johnny.

“Because it’s on the radio, people can also play along without calling in. In fact, we recently heard from several White House employees who said they play along each afternoon on their drive home.”

In addition to playing “Bible or Not” on the air, Johnny and Stacey have hosted the game at local churches, WGTS concerts and Sticker Stops, and even on a WGTS riverboat cruise.

Both Johnny and Stacey say, “The game makes the Bible accessible and alive to those who are listening to WGTS 91.9. It takes the Bible from a devotion time or quiet time and applies it to life in new ways. The game highlights God’s Word and takes it front and center for families and listeners to enjoy and learn more about it.”

You can hear “Bible or Not” weekdays on WGTS at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m.
