“Don't you folks ever read your Bibles?”
John G. Mitchell, co-founder of Multnomah Bible College

Why read the Bible?

 

It answers life’s most fundamental questions in a way that satisfies the human soul like no other written work in history. That is why it is by far the best selling book of all time!

Because the Bible is a book that God inspired people to write, it is the only reliable guide to lead us through this strangely joyful, difficult, exhilarating and bewildering life, and into God’s glorious presence (for the greatest adventures of all!) when our lives on earth come to a close.

It keeps us from error. Jesus said, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures.” Matthew 22:29

It encourages and empowers people to live lives of high moral standing! As the Bible says:

“How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.” Psalm 119:9

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11

“Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint (and sin).” Proverbs 29:18

So we encourage you to read 1-5 chapters the Bible every day and discover all that God has for you. Never read the Bible out of legalism but see your time in God's word as an opportunity to allow God to guide you through the ups and downs of life and to bring you safely to his heavenly kingdom!
