The Real Reason You Haven't Picked Up Your Bible in a While

What would you do if you didn't have access to your Bible? (StockSnap/

What would life be like without God's Word in our hands? Filmmaker M.D. Perkins says Christians should ponder the possibility. It could change their perspective and their dedication to Christ.

In his documentary The God Who Speaks, Perkins contemplates the scenario. With Christian persecution on the rise around the world, what would it be like if the Bible were outlawed?

"Many believers take the Bible for granted," Perkins told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of "Greenelines" on the Charisma Podcast Network. "I know there were days where I would look over and realize that I had not picked up my Bible today. I would realize that I hadn't sat down with God's Word.

"Sometimes we can get so carried away with the duties the duties and activities of the Christian life and Christian ministry that sometimes we forget the source of life right there, Christ Himself, and what we have in the Word. We're talking about how rich and complex and filling God's Word is for us. Why would we take that for granted?

"People can have faith in their cars and their watches and in the fact that the sun is behind the clouds. But ask them to have faith in a story that's told and retold so well decade after decade ... I don't know of another book that has changed lives like that one."
