Why Should I Read The Bible?
When you pick up a Bible, it seems like any other book. It has page numbers, chapters, and has a front and a back. The name Bible comes from the original Greek language “biblios” which means books. The Bible is a collection of books where God brings His words together for you.
Not Just A Book
It seems like any other book, but there is something different about this book that has been the best-selling book every year since the invention of the printing press. In fact, Dark Ages Mentality (more on DAM here), taught people that they didn’t need a Bible, not to read it, or even know how to read because some religious person would read it for them. That is a lie from hell. God speaks to you through the Bible. The printing press was invented to make the Bible available to the rich, the poor, the religious, as well as the God seeker. The Bible is the words are God speaking to you by men and women who were inspired by the Holy Spirit and wrote those words down we see in 2 Timothy 3:16,17.
In times past, all Bible copies had to be copied by hand. With printing, mass production got this powerful book in the hands of anyone who would desire it. Dictators, monarchs, hate groups, atheists, secularists, and all sorts of people continue to try to destroy the Bible, but have yet to succeed. The Bible, also know as the Word of God, shall stand forever Isaiah 40:8 declares.
The Truth You Require
God Himself says as the Lord Jesus Christ, “You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free” in John 8:32. What is that truth? Jesus prayed for you and I saying to the Heavenly Father, “Sanctify them with your Word, for your Word is Truth” in John 17:17. The Bible is the only source of pure truth in the world.
