Christians: When was the last time you read the Bible?
Last night. I'll read it tonight as well.
I read it almost every week. There's always a verse or two that's referenced in Sunday School or another meeting. My daily study, however, is usually kept to the Book of Mormon.
Ezekiel 33:8-9. If I announce that some wicked people are sure to die and you fail to tell them to change their ways, then they will die in their sins, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths. But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.
Whoa, that's pretty good. I have to admit I stopped reading after I got to the point about the giants but that (is it called a verse?) is awesome.
My goal is every night to read parts of it. Also do bible study books as well.
I dont understand how it is possible to read the a book as long as the bible. Its like 1000 pages.
The Bible will keep you from sin and sin will keep you from the Bible.
Okay but I am mentally and physically unable to read something longer than 50 pages without falling asleep
Most people I know only read a chapter or two at a time. You can read the entire book in a year at that pace.
It's not that hard if you pace yourself. Take your time and don't go "I have to read this whole thing" just think "I have to read this book this week" considering the fact that there are 66 books in the bible, splitting it up by book and doing one a week is very manageable.
Also listen to it. My dad has dyslexia and he listens to it while he reads it and it helps keep everything in pace. He said its made it a lot easier to do because he can listen and follow the book, but at the same time take notes as the audiobook progresses. I do this as well from time to time and it does help a lot. It helps my comprehension to just hear the words out loud. Especially with some of the vernacular being really archaic and confusing.
Today. Every day.
This morning, Ps. 119:145-160.
