Most Christians Don't Read the Bible Much

Ad Feedback

A recent study shows most churchgoing Christians don't read the Bible every day.

LifeWay Research found that 90 percent of churchgoers agree with the statement, "I desire to please and honor Jesus in all I do."

But only 19 percent read the Bible every day. About 25 percent read the Bible a few times a week.

"Bible engagement has an impact in just about every area of spiritual growth," Ed Stetzer, president of LifeWay Research, said.

Fourteen percent say they read the Bible "once a week," 22 percent say "once a month" or "a few times a month," and 18 percent rarely or never read their Bible.

"You can follow Christ and see Christianity as your source of truth," Stetzer said. "But if that truth does not permeate your thoughts, aspirations and actions, you are not fully engaging the truth."
