Most Professing Christians in Church of England Never Read the Bible

The majority of Church of England Christians don't read the Bible, the church's own polling has revealed.

Figures show that 60 per cent of self-declared followers of the Church admit they never read the Bible, and 36 per cent say they never attend church. One in three said they never pray.

The figures produced by ComRes, and commissioned by the Church, show that many of those who claim to be Christian don't actually take part in many of the activities which are normally associated with the faith.

More than half of all those who identified as Christian across all denominations admitted they never read the Bible - and one in three said they never attend church. ...

Thanks to all of you.

"So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading." (Nehemiah 8:8) The purpose of A Church service is to help people understand the context... which is impossible without Prayer and Study... but why is it so difficult for people to divorce their opinions from Scripture?
Fact: most people, (and this applies to this, the news, and any other topic...) most people will decide WHAT they believe, and then gonsearch out only the information that supports their belief... no matter what is presented as factual.
i.e. Examples run from Ferguson, Mo to Baptismal regeneration.

Good news concerning brother Frank - he has e-mailed me and let me know all is well. He and his wife are presently in a hotel and should be returning home tomorrow. He said they did not have a lot of damage, just some downed limbs and power outage. From his e-mail, "Anyway, God certainly does work in mysterious ways. We were one of the first ones to lose power and one of the last ones to get it back, but God was with us the entire way. We take so many comforts for granted until they are gone. I made me think of all those who belong to our Lord and they don't have electricity and many other things. And yet, their hearts will tell them to praise their holy Savior throughout any hardships."
God can use hardship and cause us to praise Him through it all - what an amazing God we serve!
Wonderful news dear sister. God is indeed good.

Just a quick reminder....
Let's keep brother Frank in prayer, and all affected by the hurricanes. It seems many are still without power, and it's hot and humid. We take these things for granted don't we? That is, until we do not have them.

Also, sister MS is going through a difficult trial as well, she too needs our prayers. Let's not forget to pray for each other, and for those who come here frequently and bear bad fruit. May our Lord be gracious.

Mankind doesn't live off bread alone, as we are spiritual creatures, created out of the image of God, needing heavenly food to feed our souls amen.

J.C. Rule; Be very sure of this – people never reject the Bible because they cannot understand it. They understand it too well; they understand that it condemns their own behavior; they understand that it witnesses against their own sins, & summons them to judgment. They try to believe it is false and useless, because they don't like to believe it is true.

"Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction."

Many 'professing' Christians think they are 'Christian' based on their works, i.e., repeating a prayer, following the 'roman road', inviting Jesus into their heart, making a decision to accept Jesus, undergoing baptism, etc.
The sad truth is most are void of the new birth, but they are nonetheless convinced they are 'saved' because they say they are. We see them grace these threads daily, spewing out their opinions, parroting words, links, quotes, etc. When confronted, they simply use their parroted answers, or the confrontation goes over their heads and never gets pondered by them.

Time is of the essence, no sinner has time to trifle with their own souls and where they will spend eternity. Rather than seriously contemplate that, they simply go on about their business and keep pushing for the their agendas and nonsense. The tragedy of this is beyond words.

We who are born from above can see the preciousness of this new birth, and of God's electing, saving grace.

3. Christians, who make up a majority of U.S. adults (71%), are divided over how to interpret the Bible. While about four-in-ten Christians (39%) say the Bible’s text is the word of God and should be taken literally, 36% say it should not be interpreted literally or express another or no opinion. A separate 18% of Christians view the Bible as a book written by men, not God.

Bible education is to start immediately in a child's life. If taught the truth they won't be led away to the slaughter of truth.

1Cor12"12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body."

Jn15:1"I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."

About twenty years ago I met an Anglican priest at a printshop in the U.S. As we were walking out, I asked him, "If you died today, do you know for sure you would go to heaven?" and he replied that he did not. Unfortunately , I had an urgent appointment and all I had time to do was give him a gospel tract and urge him to read it. If the pastor is lost, what hope is there for the parishioners? "If the blind lead the blind..."

""The majority of Church of England Christians don't read the Bible, the church's own polling has revealed.""

CofE "christians"???
They are Liberals - NOT christians!!

The CofE and the CofS are the antithesis of Christian and Biblical.

Liberalism is completely antithetical to Biblical Christianity.

The Archbishops and Bishops and preachers in the Anglican/Episcopalian 'church?' are not christians and cannot read the truth in Scripture - even if they did read it in print.

"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of." 2Peter 2:
