I admit that after responding to this article, I HAVE NOT been reading my Bible as I have been. I've lost some steam and gained some confusion and bitterness along the way. That article and my response was a wake-up call for ME! Okay, gotta go. I have a date!

The Kingdom is at hand! It is readily available for everyone. Online Dating is where people read about possible mates. They read info about the other person with hopes of developing a relationship. When you read the Word, you are reading a Love letter from God where He has chosen a "ghost writer" ie: Paul, Luke, Samuel etc. This Love letter or text message from God is there either by the side of your bed or on your coffee table. Pick it up and ask the God inside of you, THe Holy Spirit to help you to understand, experience and cooperate with our God of Love.

They forget that real Christianity is the daily, intimate relationship with the Lord which can not be realized until the Written Word is meditated so that it is in our mind ready to be written in our hearts by the Holy Spirit to be come the Living Word of the Lord issuing in obedience and effective witness.

Jesus is in you how close to him is that. must of the first christian didn't know how to read, so my question will be how close were they to Jesus? I don't have to read the bible, I want to read the bible which is different and not to draw close to him he is already in me you cant get closer than that.

I believe the reason church goers don't read their bibles is because their pastors does not read(study) theirs. Christ said no man(speaking of mankind, man, woman, and child) enters into heaven, except He who was sent down, speaking of Himself.In the book of Ecclesiastes , the preacher said,"every man knows he will die, but the dead know nothing at all." But every funeral I have ever attended the minister tells the mourners that while we are still stuck down here, the deceased is enjoying his or her time with God and all the saints. in heaven. They then go on about all the things which are NOT mentioned in the bible, even though it is forbidden to do so in the book of Revelation where it says we are not to add or take away from the word of God, Oh well that does not go for the the pastor who has to warn his flock about the dangers of a place, they call hell, even though it is never mentioned by Christ, Paul, Peter or for that matter none of the old testament prophets. Then they tell you that if you do not pay tithes you are breaking the law, they forget to mention that this is man's law, and it is the man who prophets from it. Under the O.T. law of tithing only the HIGH Priest could collect the tithes and money was not a commodity to be tithed an I don't know about you but I have never seen a real live priest.Then to top this all off he tells you that "We must have an alter call so you can seek God." Even though we are told that no man can come to Christ until the father draws him. But the one I like the best, I believe it is my personal favorite, the blessed holy trinity. It was thought up by the men of the holy church in Rome to demean and defame God and His Son. It was not even heard of until it was brought up in the year AD 325 at the Nicene Creed, then again in AD. 381 at the Nicaeno- Constantinopolitan Creed, finally, in the Third Synod at Toledo, after a 264 year period, and. much discussion it took various forms and used multitudes of words, so complex and enigmatic it is. incomprehensible, it was made a law of the church in AD 589. Talk about blasphemy it took God only seven days. to create everything we now see, and the church 264 years to say there was three of them, I guess they kept getting in each others way or they could have done it in four or five. My point being if today's men of god would give up their gods of the heart and turn again to the ONE true God they might inspire their flock to read, and. write those wonderful words on their hearts. Right now they are full filling the prophesy of Christ when He said. "They would teach for gospel the commandments of men".

There is a new book out by Pastor Matt Chandler, The Explicit Gospel. The best I have read on what the Gospel is and it isn't. I think he deals with the subject of salvation and the road to the remedy of decision vs. relatioship. It should be decision, & decisions because of relationship.

I think people don't use their Bible because they don't feel a need for God. So many now are bogged down in horrible situations with job loss, school issues, fear of the government, etc. This is actually happening so that we will be drawn to our need for God. The Holy Spirit prompts and people don't listen. If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and seek my face, I will heal their land. But if you don't know the attributes of God, then you miss the hope.

Sir as you have explained that Jesus didn't said don't beleive in Him.I thought He told His desciples that they must believe in Him.Kindly read John 14:1 What Lord Jesus said "Let not your heart be troubled;you believe in God, believe also in Me"I think you must add whatever you are sayoing, I mean we must follow accordingily as He did in His life.Many people of this world doing many things like as Jesus did but they don't believe in Jesus Christ so what you say about them will they obtaine eternal life?

The greatest thing that can be done for those who were born to this world and for those who are able to read or listen is to read/audit the text of the Holy Bible - the Writing which the Savior of the world (Jesus Christ) absolutely acknowledged and kept as the perfect Word of God, the Writing about Him and His will including His own Words written down by the direct eye-witnesses and their associates all under the direct inspiration of God's Holy Spirit. The text is incomparably outstanding superb and profound above anything on Planet Earth, just as Jesus is the incomparable Savior. Many bled and died to read or spread God's Book, the Holy Bible, because it is the only worthy Book to live for and die for in this universe. One can get saved without even seeing the books of the Bible, but humans who don't read the Holy Bible miss out the greatest, deepest treasure in existence. Christians who possess the copies of the Holy Bible should never neglect reading the entire Bible regularly. Feeding on the Word molds the sound and healthy Christian doctrines and Christian character.
