I'm loving what the rest of you are saying on this topic
In the gospels Jesus said they searched the scriptures but didn't come to Him. The warning being that simply reading and studying the Bible might not lead you to a closer walk with the Lord.

Hebrews says that the word of God is a sharp two edged sword that is able to discern the thoughts and intents and separate the soul from the spirit.

Being able to do something doesn't presuppose that it will do it. A tuned piano is able to play very beautiful music, doesn't mean it will.

The word of God is the sharp two edged sword able to do this, but just because you are handling the Bible doesn't mean you will discern the spirit (just like those who didn't come to Jesus). We need to understand that this is a goal for us.
