Is Reading the Bible a Requirement to Go To Heaven?

I read a post today from Just a Catholic called, “Do You Have to Read the Bible to Go to Heaven?”. When I read the titled I thought to myself, wow did somebody really ask that question? I thought about it a little more though and realized that’s just how some people think. They think there is some checklist of good deeds and actions they must do to go to heaven one day. This checklist does not exist though, as we all know quite well. I thought it was an interesting thought none the less.

There is nothing that forces you to read the Bible. However there are some definite benefits to be found in doing so. First and foremost, God would not have had the Bible created if he did not want us to read it. The Bible is there for us to read and learn from. You can learn from the lessons Jesus taught, and therefore live a life more like Christ. Cherish the words that God has give us in the Bible and make the most out of them.
