Which do you rely on most for christian study, the Bible or other christian literature?


I rely solely on the bible for my study. In my opinion much of the christian literature tend to be unreliable and to lean towards set doctrines that can be wrong. So which do you rely on most?

    PandN- Great answer. Understanding the context of God's word is of the utmost imprtance. That can only through the study of god's word and revelation through the Holy Spirit. Again many thanks.

    Eric - as always thank you. My concern are for those who are new in their study of the bible. They are the one who fall too easy into the traps of some christian literture that later turn out to be cults. Again Thanks

    Alexander- Thank you. I'm glad to hear you don't take teaching from others on blind faith. However there are many who do. Those who are new in the study of God's word fall far to easy to false doctrine and churches. Many thanks for your answer.

    Jackie, I do so agree. You have explained so well the need for study books to help us with the Bible. Wise writers who know so much more can teach us a lot about the meanings of words and the background, and, of course, we use our own brains as well.

    SamuelGMiller- I'm very glad you read the bible as much as you do. The people you mentioned are not known to me so I am not aware of the work. Thanks for your answer.

    lone77star- whatever few christian literature I might read is always cheched with scripture. I don't assume any christian literature is correct. And I avoid literature that forces doctrine on others. I stick with subject covered in the bible. Thanks.
