This Tennessee Law declaring the Bible to be the “Official Book” of Tennessee is something like what Jesus directly spoke out against: “Blowing your trumpet before men”. In that case, he was referring to prayer, but the idea is that one’s “faitfulness” is not something to present as “announcement”. It’s pure “showoff” and means NOTHING. Like you suggest, to DO the things that are lifted up in the Bible is the point. Not to wag our fingers and say “We believe the Bible, you’d better shape up!” How sickening and hypocritical.
