 How many christians read there bible ?

I was just wondering what is the statistics of christians reading the bible not because they have to but because they love jesus ?

I'm guessing 1 or 2 out of 100 who call themselves Christians regularly read and study the Bible. Maybe less I don't know. (I don't sound pessimistic do I?)

I chanted the salvation mantra (sinner's prayer) when I was a young man, but it wasn't until a dozen or so years later that I had a real meeting with God. The chanting the mantra did nothing - I was a worse sinner than ever I was before - but one day on my bed, through tears of anguish and great tribulation, I finally looked at my wretched estate, and came to God in earnest. I have read the bible every day since, and it has been the sweetest joy to do so. I marvel when Christians tell me they don't read the bible, or that they read it only sparingly. Where is the hunger??

 Re: How many christians read there bible ?

Hmmm, I do not read the bible by verse by verse or by chapter by chapter, I meditate on the wording, sometimes it maybe one word or a group of words. No I guess I would not be in the class of just your average bible reader.

One verse at time, here a little there a litte. Sometimes that one verse will carry me from week to week until another one is given to chew on. This weeks verse for me is:

"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation, for when he is tried he shall receive the crown of life, which the LORD hath promised to them that love Him" James 1:12

The goal here for me is the Crown of Life. A crown is placed on the head, signifying that we would have obtained the mind of Christ after enduring a great fight of affliction. Christ is our Crowning Glory.

Thanks for asking.

 Re: reading is not enough

Reading the bible I do every day,but more importantly the question for me is how much scripture do I have memorized?
I also think in terms of redeeming my time because I will have to account for how I spend my day. Do I read the bible like it's the life, the light, the living word and the only offensive weapon in daily spiritual battle? For all this and more is what that book of pages and words means to me.

 Re: How many christians read there bible ?

Everyday......first thing upon awakening with my first cup of coffee. And right before I do I pray to God to open my eyes, my spiritual eyes to reveal hidden truths. It's a supernatural Book, its a Holy Faith we have, and that Book can cut chunks out of a sinners heart.

I'm in Philippians, the Book of Joy.

I dont know how many read the Word regularly, but I pray that anyone reading my response to you, pick up the Bible and read some of it, and the part they read SPEAK DIRECTLY INTO THEIR HEARTS.

In Jesus' Name.

 Re:


I have a tendency not listen to the one's who say they heard a Word from God and they haven't bothered to read what the Bible says. I believe that the Holy Spirit has a difficult time ministering us when we haven't read the bible.


In Christ,

 Re:

John 14
24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

If we really love jesus we will read what he says and I sometimes really want to help people the problem is that they have not read enough for me to explain what I mean.
