    I was just curious how many people study the scriptures daily. Preferably from a believers standpoint. I dont expect the nonbelievers to be studying that much.

    Yes. I pray and study for an hour or so everyday. Usually when I get up in the morning.

    I was taught to read at age five using the scriptures.

    As a Catholic I go to church and all, but lately I've been busy with Junior Hockey and my studies and getting ready for Eastern Carolina University, and soon to get into ROTC over there.

    So I had to say no.

    I am like Jesus, I re-write the scriptures because I am dyslexically delirious with God.

    I would sing the Palms of Solomon with you Ms. Bones. I like naked women bathing on rooftops. The world needs more of that.

    yes...

    not as ritual, or a daily practice, but I find myself looking up scripture or a parable or bible passage or two, daily, for one reason or another....usually due to a 'religion' post on this site...which then leads me to reading further than the scripture i was looking up....

    You can study Scripture all you want but until one becomes Christlike it is all for nothing.
    Beware of those that proclaim their Christianity at every turn.
    If you are really a Christian you will not have to tell anyone as they will know it by your actions.
