The Bible – part 6, Why People Do Not Understand The Bible (1)

I think there are some simple reasons why people do not understand the Bible.  Please consider the following carefully:

1. Lack of study.  How can we understand that which we do not read and study?  Study is hard word but study we must if we want to know God’s word (2 Tim. 2:15).

2. Cares of this world choke the word.  We become so busy with the things of this world that we find no time for God’s word.  If we do study, then often we may not apply it to our lives because we are too busy with worldly things.  We need to be more concerned with making a life (spiritual life that pleases God) than making a living (Mt. 13:22).

3. No Desire for knowledge.  Some simply do not care about God and His word.  They have no spiritual appetite (2 Pet. 3:17-18). The Eunuch in Acts 8 had a strong desire to know and understand the word of God (Acts 8:30-31).

4. Many follow preachers, teachers and church leaders without investigating the word for themselves (Mt. 15:14;Rom. 16:17-18)
