Why Isn't Just Reading The Bible Enough?
Matthew 7:21 - "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter."
James 1:22 - "But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves."
2 Timothy 2:15 - "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth."
An individual can read without study, but cannot understand without study, and the Lord requires that you do something with what you learn.
