HOW TO STUDY THE BIBLE

Introduction

· This Book will either keep you away from SIN or SIN will keep you this Book

· Dusty Bibles always lead to dirty lives

· You are either in the Word, and the Word is forming Jesus Christ in you or you are in the World, and the World is squeezing you into its mold

· It is good for believers to come to church or to listen the preaching of God’s Word, but that should only be a stimulus, not a substitute for personal study of the Word

· The more the Bible is being printed, the less it is read

· Most Christians are biblical illiterates 6 days in a week


Why Don’t People Study The Bible

· I am just a layman, not a preacher
