The real christian reads the Bible for instruction and edification , wisdom and knowledge. This is were your faith is developed . From hearing the word and meditating daily. Now those who don't read on a regular basis can be  hearers of the word and not doers as the word say's in the Bible , but I can't judge the manner of the way a person learns from GOD cause we all are subject to a choice in everything we do and that includes how we learn from the word.  Just because a person doesn't read as often as I do doesn't say they are any less of a christian then I am.  Never reading the Bible is just a church goer" if they go to church."will be ignorant of knowledge about the Bible not knowing anything about the word.

Some Christians read the Bible regularly because they believe, the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Christians believe one of the ways to grow in greater knowledge of God is reading the story of God's relationship with His people. The story begins in the first book of the Bible called Genesis and continues the story about God and His people through the Old Testament Books.

With the coming of Jesus, the New Testament begins and tells the story of Jesus, the Son of God: His birth, life, sufferings, death, Resurrection and Ascension into heaven. Then, it continues with the stories of the Apostles of Jesus and the stories of their lives after the death of Jesus.

The Bible is a history book, it is His-story, the story of God and God's people. Christians believe by reading the Bible they learn of God's love for His people.

I strongly agree with the way this reader answered this question. The Bible is the inspired Word of God and most Christians believe that His Word is the living truth. During my first 2 years of being saved, I believed in God, but I didn't have a relationship with Him. When I began to read His Word on a daily basis,I began to learn what it what is is that God expects from His children. It holds true that many people rely on their pastors to quote scriptures and for interpretation of God's Word. However, there are some people who would rather not become familiar with His Word because they do not want to be held accountable. In order to gain knowledge on anything in life, is normally by way of experience, studying , or doing research.

Some Christians, like me, read the Bible on a regular basis to find out more about God and the people who have followed him throughout the ages. Christians who don't read the Bible tend to either believe that the Bible is confusing or they think that they can just hear it from there pastor. As long as you follow the Bible and aren't pulled away from God, it doesn't really matter. But I still think that people should read the Bible. It's great and it's God's holy word.

I have to disagree with you there, bible reading is very foundation in the lives of Christians. The only way to become a strong athlete is to train every day. In the same way the only way to become a strong Christian is to read you bible and pray everyday.

Therefore bible reading is very important and should not be neglected.

For those of you who want to develop a daily bible reading devotion but find it difficult, try this rule. NO BIBLE, NO BREAKFAST or DINNER. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Because the Bible is God's Word to our hearts; God's Word is for our spirit what food is for our body. Once we've teased and have seen how Good is the Lord, we keep wanting more. It becomes an unquenchable need - a hunger and thirst that only He can satisfy. "Oh, taste and see that the Lord is Good!"

There are many who do not read or properly study the Bible because they think that their mere "belief" in Jesus is enough for them.  But they don't realise that anyone who truly believes in Christ Jesus would want to seek the truth and find out more about Him by studying the Word of God.

Thanks for all your answers this has really helped me with my Homework.
I think that all people who say they are Christians are and most have looked and read certain sections of the Bible. I think most read the Bible in dilemma's and may read parables.
