Why is it that christians do not study the bible by themselves?


I have found that most christians don't bother to read and study the bible by themselves. They like to replace the bible by books found in christian book stores and then they believe what those books teach about the bible rather than what the bible teaches itself. Why do you think that christians don't like studying the bible by themselves? Do you think that they struggle to use their own mind when reading scriptures and prefer to have someone else do the thinking for them? Do you think most christians have lost their ability to reason because of this?

    I agree with Sidkemp. I have been in a few religions and they told me what the Bible was all about. Then something happened in my life that got me to investigate further-on my own and I got a very different meaning from that Bible and other sources
