Most churchgoers don't read Bible daily

While the majority of churchgoers desire to honor Christ with their lives and even profess to think on biblical truths, a recent study found few actually engage in personal reading and study of the Scriptures.

The survey found 90 percent of churchgoers agree that "I desire to please and honor Jesus in all I do," and 59 percent agree with the statement: "Throughout the day I find myself thinking about biblical truths." While the majority agree with both statements, there is a significant difference in the strength of agreement. Nearly two-thirds of churchgoers (64 percent) strongly agree with the first statement, but only 20 percent strongly agree with the second.

However, when asked how often they personally (not as part of a church worship service) read the Bible:

This is why the majority of professing Christians are weak and sickly.

If you fail to eat bread daily, your body will fail.

If you fail to feast on the Word of God, you will be weak and feeble.

If you don't "eat", you cannot stay strong in the Lord.

If only the pulpit bromide that daily Bible-reading makes one a better person was actually true. I've seen "Christians" whom I've had no reason to doubt knew their Bibles, yet were either clueless or spineless when it came to obvious wrongdoing or foolishness by church leadership.

IMHO, it's not what folks don't know that's the problem; it's what they do know, but refuse to act upon when it costs them anything.

Shocking! You mean they go to church services, but shy away from a face to face relationship? I don't believe it, certainly this study is flawed... If you are truly surprised by this wake up! You're in Laodicea you bible illiterate sinner!
