Man because of the fall of Adam and Eve , man was separated from God. Man also took or being influenced by Satan through the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. The tendency of man is to avoid the Bible or to misunderstand or corrupt the Bible.But in reality it is gold mine of God's revelation to man.
Reason to read the Bible: Let me share a simple illustration.Let us say somebody gave you a car and you do not know how to use it.You must likely need driver education or an instructor to teach you.
The car book is to a car as the Holy Bible is for man's instruction in godly living leading ultimately to everlasting life with God.
