many, many times
every day regardless of any other schedule.
Yes. Several times. It's a good book, high adventures, great protagonists, fascinating antagonists, and lots of hot stories. Lots of deep truths, lots of scientific errors, but still a vehicle for the Spirit of God.
Once so I could say I did.
A second time because I was a born again Christian at the time, it was the word of God, and the answer to everything.
A third time because it's a fantastic book. Love, war, sex, betrayal, real life super heroes, etc. Honestly, whether you believe in God or not (which I'd like to make perfectly I do, but am not Christian), it is most likely the best book that will ever be written; and I still read from it a few times a month.
I have read parts of the Bible, I cannot say I have read it through completely from cover to cover. I also bought a companion book to explain things in the Bible that I found were difficult to comprehend.
You might say that growing up going to mass everyday for many years where we would read the English translations in our Marion Missles of the priest's Latin reading of passages from the Bible recited from the altar as an integral part of the Mass, and then hearing the epistle and gospel read every Sunday from the Old and New Testament, again following along in the missle, that I actually read a large part of the Bible. I love the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount, the 23rd Psalm, some of Paul (the famous examination of love) and the parables.
I have not read the Bible as many of my friends do now; would NEVER go to a Bible study; and am quite saddened that people in today's American society, have locked themselves into the analysis of passages that have been translated over and over again, interpreted this way and that. It makes me very scared for society in general, to be quite honest. And ironically, I think it would make a Supreme Being very disheartened if such a Being could be disheartened.
Some of it not all, but I have to agree it is a very interesting book with great stories, I was amazed.
Many signs in the bible if we listen and understand.
I have not read from page one and so on, I sort of skipped to parts I wanted to learn more about and then researched it.

I am a staunch Christian and have met and talked with many a born again Christian. I had no nerve to ask them to their face if they continued sinning. Very forgettable and forgivable sins like say, a little gluttony: one little bite off that Black Forest you love. Is it still sin in their eyes?Can...

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.

To be a born again Christian is easy but to be a good disciple of Christ is very hard. Do you agree?

Why do so many people not like the Bible?Individuals that can't read may not like the Bible because they can't read it.
