Do Christians Use The Bible

Has anyone read about the group at Berea, Acts 17:11? They did not go on the word of men alone, but confirmed it with studing the scriptures. I am amazed how many Christians will quickly put up the red flag or blockers, instead of conferring with the scriptures on what someone tells them.

Some Bibles are not good translation but there are a number of ones who are.

I have read and studies many different translation but mostly the King James.

There were good points made about many not reading the Bible and instead just following what they are told.

Yes I use the KJV Bible only.
I do Not use the corrupted revised versions. They have been edited altered changed n with words taken out trying to make God say what He does Not say.

It is regrettable how many accept false theories because of peoples charisma when presenting them! THe hard part is scripture is easily twisted and so many that accept theories do so THINKING they are infact accepting scripture!

David, on those who admit that they haven't read the whole Bible, at least they are being honest. I am not surprised to hear that many do not read the scriptures in their entirety.

Personally, I have read the whole Bible and I own and use many different translations to get a better understanding of the scriptures. But such things have always come easily to me, I have always had a thirst for knowledge and the Bible is the deepest book(s) there is.

, what if all christians checked their own Bibles against other translations to see if they were getting the true meaning in each verse. this is what the bereans did with Paul.

Part 2

There are many people that I meet daily that claim to be Christian. They are proud if they are Pastors, Priests, or leaders of Bible Studies. I ask people during a conversation if they have read the Bible from Gn through Rev., the number one answer is "no." Don't know how you can lead a church or Bible Study without having done this.

Most only know how to parrot other people and don't believe in studying it for themselves.

Part 1

You make an excallent point Geraa. Correct me if I am wrong, the Biblical illiteracy rate in US churches is something like 70%, a number that I heard on Moody one day.

Gerra, I agree with your point. It took me many YEARS to understand that to understand God's word means to study it. Not to just accept the teachings of a preacher, teacher, or person with multiple initials after their name. It was as I grew and questioned verses against others but knew God's word was true. Then I sought the meanings of verses rather than a simple translation of the words. God is perfect as is His word.

, moderator, forgive me for being so passionate about bible translations . i know i need to be more accepting of other views.
---steve on 9/19/05

that is why as said in the bible to "examine the scriptures daily" If we choose not to read the bibel we are not getting the correct spiritual food of God.
