Why do so many Christians seem unknowledgeable about the Bible?

It seems as though most of today's christians spend all to much time debating things without using any scripture or if they do use scripture they completely neglect Christ's teachings. Does anyone bother to read the bible any more? Really read it? Not just a verse here and there but a chapter or two at a time?

Less and less Christians are interested in religion. Such is modern life. The same might be said of any other religion and how much they study it.

Many people in the middle east can not read and depend on what their religious leaders tell them. The roman catholic church used to do something similar by keeping the bible in Latin and not letting the common man learn it. Now that the bible is available to all in various translations in all kinds of languages it is a shame that few take advantage of this and learn it for themselves.

A very Large % of "Christians" depend on what the man behind the pulpit tells them. The bible tells us (philippians 2:12 KJV) Seek out your Own salvation with fear and trembling. One needs Read the Bible to do that.
There are many phew warmers that will be surprised they do not make it in the final judgment.

Being born into a religious family does not take away your choice. Even God gives us a choice. Being born into a religious family does not guarantee a ticket to heaven either because you have to make a individual choice about it.

Gybno, shirking your responsibility by claiming no choice is the coward's way out.

I see nothing in the Bible claiming heaven is the reward of the saved, but I do see a lot where Earth is the reward, with God living at New Jerusalem on Earth.

Heaven is where the heart is so where ever it happens to be, on earth or in some spiritual realm, matters not to me, as it is a minor point not worth arguing over.

With that definition of heaven, heaven could actually be in hell if that is where the heart is. Therefore, from a Biblical perspective, that definition does not make any sense at all.

No the point is that salvation does not depend on whether or not I believe Where heaven is suppose to be because Heaven is with Christ and whether He is in Up in some spiritual realm away from earth or on earth makes no difference. Both are spoken of and both are true just at different times. Now I refuse to argue this point any further because it is a minor point and won't affect my salvation but may affect others because of the continued arguing over such a minor point.

As long as YOU are SURE that it won't affect your salvation, you are correct in relegating it to the trashbin. BUT, you had BETTER BE SURE, because if you are wrong (not saying you are), YOU WON'T GET A SECOND CHANCE.

Belief in Who Christ is, what He did for us, that He died, rose again and is returning for us, getting baptized, loving others as ourselves and Loving God are the basic tenets of the Christian faith. How you get baptized, when you get baptized, when Christ returns, where heaven is located are all things Christians fight over and divide into denominations over. None of it is necessary for salvation and often affects those new in the faith.

What I mean is the things fought over is not necessary for salvation. The basic tenets of the Christian faith are necessary for salvation.

Yeh many of the Christians have less knowledge about bible. Maybe its because the way they lived is not much concerned about their caste or something.

Very simple. They do not read the Bible. Or they read the Bible and REFUSE to believe what it says.

Oky hereon is a prime example. He utterly refuses to believe what the Bible says. His ONLY use for the Bible is to bend and twist its words so he can use it as a battering ram against other people.

God (if He exists) will REJECT those who REJECT what He says.

Further a Christian is defined as someone who belongs to Christ. Anyone who pays only lip-service cannot be a Christian regardless of his claims. As a whole, professing Christians are some of the world's worst backbiters, worst liars, worst hypocrites, worst thieves, etc. As a result when someone tells me they are Christian my first reaction is to leave as fast possible. I simply do not want nor need their problems in my life.

And, no, I have never ever claimed to be a Christian. I would be too ashamed to class myself as part of humanity that has such terrible traits.

I understand your anger especially with the way they are acting in the usa with the election of trump. To many christians get it spoon fed to them and don't read it let alone practise what is in it. Just know that It is okay to not be a Christian that is your choice God the Father, Christ the Son and The Holy spirit does not force anyone to believe in them and I don't either.
