I don’t think I can ever state the importance of reading God’s word. People in our society that mistake the Bible for just another a book make a big mistake. It’s more than that, it’s “The power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.” Romans 1:16
It doesn’t come as any surprise, though afterall we live in the society that rejects God,so it would only make sense they reject his word. It’s not just non believers though, we Christians do this when we water down the word to fit our comforts. Following Christ doesn’t call for comfortable life styles, but edgey on the tip of the iceberg living. The world’s idea of comfort is different than that of the Christian. This leads to why the world, and many people in it only view the Bible as just another book. Don’t make that mistake, avoid lukewarmness and get in the word.
