Why do so many people who call themselves Christians don't read their bibles?


You know Jesus when things are going good than why don't you know Him when things are going bad. Imagine if you went three days without water what will happen to your physical body? Now ask yourself the same question what would happen to your spirit man? Reading God's word is very vital for any Christian.

    That is a very old practice that is not taught and never was a rule. Many Cathholic put Bibles in the pew rack and I have a Catholic which is similar to KJ version except it has 4 additional books in the old Testament.

    Vital indeed it is and often times ppl give up reading it when they don't understand it that's why the bible says ask for wisdom and He will give it to us.

    How did you get kicked out of a church and what kind of church? Baptist, Methodist, etc? I've never heard of that happening before.

    I never read the Bible to get close to God. I read because I believed what was written. Why do Christians tell people they need to get closer to God when God is omnipresent. I stopped reading it because I don't believe in God.

    I say the same thing like you my sister but it is happening everywhere..Remember the bible tells us that man will no longer listen to sound doctrine.
