All about me?

At Blogotional John Schroeder has noticed something about group Bible studies:
In my elder and curmudgeonly years I have come to conclude that the ubiquitous Bible study question, "What does that mean to you?" has done far more harm than good. It is meant to ask someone to re-express what a passage is saying in their own words - to grapple with the ideas and concepts sufficiently to be able to restate them. But over the decades of this question's ubiquity I think it has come to teach people that the Bible was written for them and is in fact about them.
