There's a growing trend in Christianity to shy away from studying and sharing what the bible says.
What is your opinion in regards to knowing scripture?
Is it important that we know what the bible says?
Is there any benefit to memorizing, studying and recalling scriptures from the bible?
Does knowing what it says make a difference in your 'every day' living?
Do you watch Christian movies and listen to Christian music as a replacement of bible study, and do you think that's enough?
Do you think it's outdated, offensive, over-used, not relevant or boring?

What are your thoughts?
The thing is whatever works for you. Individual ready, and if you are fortunate enough to find a good group, that can be extremely beneficial.
Group study offers encouragement through shared stories and testimonies as well as different perspectives. I love diverse groups of all ages. But my favourite group is the women’s group I’ve attended for over 10 years. They are a huge blessing in my life in countless ways.
One of the most obvious aspects of group study that I failed to mention is fellowship. Christian fellowship is of utmost importance for encouragement and growth.
