Why is it important to read your Bible?
Here are some statistics from Wayne Stiles in his blog from today:
Did you know? Research shows that someone who reads the Bible 4 or more times each week is:
- 228% more likely to share their faith
- 407% more likely to memorize scripture
- 59% less likely to view pornography
- 30% less likely to struggle with loneliness
There are likely many other benefits as well!
I've graduated from Citadel Bible College in Ozark, Arkansas, with a B. A. Then got my M. Div. and Th. M. at Capital Bible Seminary in Lanham, MD. I finished with a D. Min. degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, but keep on learning. I pastored at Chinese Christian Church of Greater Washington, D. C., was on staff at East Evangelical Free Church in Wichita, KS, tried to plant an EFC in Little Rock, before moving back home to Mena, where I now pastor my home church, Grace Bible Church

Strange that some one who would read the Bible 4 or more times each week would still be interested for 41% in viewing pornographic material. One would think a regular reader of the Holy Scriptures would not have an interest at all to be carried away by viewing pornography.
I agree. The pull is strong and it is obeying the Word that leads to victory. In particular, it is having a strong belief in God’s love for me, which produces a strong love for Christ, that keeps us from being seduced by sin’s allure.
