The bible is not the basis of ones personality or attitude. Its just a book of life or guidance but its not about everything.

you dont need to read the bible to be good. goodness is in ourswelves. but if you read the bible and live with it then that is a different goodness as well. i agreee with you when you said that there are people who reads the bible but are bad. who goes to church freguently but is not living a life the way that God would be happy. i also know someone who reads the bible and goes to church but it is only for a purpose.
