Why is our society wicked? Why does everyone claim to be religious but then they live there lives sinfully? Why has the Bible became boring to most people? Is it because of the media? Is it because they want to appear religious?

Welcome to mylot and wishing you a great happiness and earning in the mylot. I don't agree with your declarations or the assumptions at all. When people have kept the "Holy Bible" in their home that means they are on the way to happiness today or tomorrow, whenever the time would permit them , they definitly would read this Bible and would find the direction and happiness in the life. As they have brought the Holy thing in the house that means they are on the mission and it's not compulsary to attend or read it in a hurry to finish it like a novel. Every single word and line in the Bible freshens and encourages you, it's not any fiction or a mistry book or any hot movie should be seen or digested as soon as it's released. Kindly avoid blaming and making assumption about the religious people before you go a saint or something in this field. I am not a christen but a hindu by religion and I have read so many religious holy books, hence because I dare can predict that you haven't yet understood the Bible in a real sense, otherwise you would not have stated this statement over here. Please don't mind my words but do mind what I wanted to tell you. Thank you and may God bless you too!

Thanks for your opinion but I have my own since of what the Bible is expressing. Your assumptions are yours as well and they are not for me to judge but I have read many religious books and my opinions were formed by them. Thanks for your input

this problem stems from the people themselves. many people have bibles at home but they seldom read their bibles. they just remember to flip through their bibles during sundays or when they have problems. These people are the kind of people who project the image that they are religious persons, when in truth and in fact they don't bother to read their bibles. these kinds of people are only pretending, fooling others and themselves. the bible is not boring. i should say this because i read the bible. there are bible nowadays that are colored, and contains pictures or images that make it visually appealing to the eyes. but i still believe though that the desire to read the bible must come from within, because of your faith, because you want to please GOD and not because you want to please others by thinking that you are a good religious man.
