    As a  Christian have you ever studied the bible to check your beliefs?

    The scriptures tell us to test ALL things to see if they be of God.   Have you ever sat down with your bible and the Holy Spirit and studied to see if what you believe is scripturally sound?   I dont mean tried to make your beliefs fit, I mean sincerely looking for truth.   What did you find?   Did you find some of what you had been taught was not scriptural?  if so what &  What did you do about it?

    I read the bible old and new testaments but I don't understand any of them.
    I just read because I promised that I would, still I couldn't find anything that relate to my daily life .

    Just don't want to go astray, that's all

      You are wise for reading and studying your Bible, because this is something God wants us to. The scripture at Acts 17:11 reminds me of you. There, the ancient Boreans examined their scriptural writings daily to make sure of what they were learning.

    The Ethiopian Eunuch was reading an  account from the Scriptures concerning Jesus Christ, but he was lacking understanding of what he was reading, so God's angel spoke to Phillip and directed him to speak to this humble Ethiopian Eunuch. God used His holy spirit and Philip to help this person to fully grasp what he was reading. Jehovah's Witnesses are the only group I know of that thoroughly and accurately know and understand God's Word. I've been a JW since 1980 and I have never looked back. We use the Bible as our sole source of authority and if secular references support the teachings of God's Word that's an added plus.....Another thing, learning to reason and meditate on God's Word is critical so as to sound down God's Word in our heart and mind.

    With that said, this account teaches us that assistance from others can help us navigate through the Bible and help us  to pinpoint certain scriptures that can assist us with our concerns, challenges, anxieties, specific problems, and discouragement. The Bible also can encourage us and help  us to draw closer to God (James 4:8) (Acts 8:26-40)

    The Scriptures also help us to see that the whole Bible is beneficial for all things (2nd Timothy 3:16,17).
