I have had many conversations with people in the last couple months about questions I have been coming up with through the Bible reading I have been doing lately. I have heard this comment at least a few times: “You read the Bible a lot more than I do”. And this is coming from professing Christians.
So I have been thinking about this lately. I know that a legalistic viewpoint on how much a Christian *should* read the bible is not healthy and can lead to unneeded guilt if you are not meeting the expectation. But I would think that the Christian would *want* to read the Bible, being that they believe it is the “word of God” and “inspired” and basically the handbook to the Christian faith.
If you are a Christian, what is your view on Bible reading? Do you think Christians, in general, read enough? If not, why do they not read more? Can someone be a “strong believer” in the faith and not really ever read the Bible?
