5 Reasons NOT to read your Bible

1. It may change your assumptions about God.

It’s common to have wrong perceptions about God until we encounter Him through the Scriptures.

2. It may show you that you’ve mistaken religion with relationship.

Many churches promote a system of behaviors rather than a relationship like what we see in the Bible.

3. You may give up trying to be perfect.

There is one common trait shared by all those people who are part of God’s story – they were misfits who messed up A LOT!

4. It may affect how you relate to others.

You may begin to see people not for how they can benefit you, but for how you can impact them.

5. It may challenge you to leave behind a legacy.

You may be compelled to give your life to a greater cause, a bigger story, one that extends far beyond your pleasures or comforts.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. ~ 2 Timothy 3:16

There is no substitute for spending time in God’s word. If you’ve ever struggled with reading through the Bible or are looking for a new adventure, our church family is going to be sharing a journey through The Story.

But you don’t have to be a part of our church family to share in the adventure. You can read the books for yourself and follow along with my blog. Click on The Story tab above to read more about it.

Wether you join us or not, make it a priority to spend time with God in His word!

  1. Hi. How come the title is NOT to read your Bible?

    • Because my blog is very focused on following Jesus the title “NOT to read your Bible” was more likely to grab people’s attention. I was hoping it would startle people enough that they would stop and think about how much time and attention they were giving to being in God’s word. And I was also hoping it might possibly even attract a few non-believers and give them something to think about. Thanks for asking! I enjoyed checking out your blog and will stop by again.

  2. Wow! That’s great! =D I’ll be sure to send it asap.

  3. Pardon, but, where is your e-mail address? =)

    • Just leave your mailing address as a comment and once I have it I’ll delete it and mail you a copy of The Story.

      • Thank you for trusting me with your mailing address. I have written it down and am deleting it from the comments so that no one else will see it. I have never mailed anything to the Philippines but will do my best to get you a copy of the The Story. God bless!
