Why Study the Bible Online Anyway?

Western civilization owes much to the Bible. The King James Bible translation shaped English prose both in the Christian culture and in British/American culture. Even Victor Hugo admired the role of the King James version.

“England has two books, the Bible and Shakespeare. England made Shakespeare, but the Bible made England.” Source

Today there are many English translations of the Bible. Even if you are not a Christian, there are good reasons to study the Bible for your own benefit. If you are a Christian or Christian leader, studying the Bible is indispensable.

Therefore consider these reasons.

Study the Bible – A Student Testimony

My name is Saris Hovaguimian, M.Ed. J.D., and I am blessed to study the Bible online at the Christian Leaders Institute. Born in 1962 in Aleppo, Syria, I lived in Lebanon until the age of 14 and have been a California resident since 1978.

My Youth

I was brought up in a religious family, attending the Armenia Apostolic Cathedral. During my elementary school years, I attended an all-boys Catholic Study the Bible Onlineschool. In my 20s, I served in the Armenian Cathedral Choir for 15 years and helped raise funds to build a youth center. My family is very religious, God-fearing, and relying on the tradition in the Church. I can still picture my mother and father reading the Bible together. That is how they start their day.

When I served in the church choir, I attended law school and graduated with my Juris Doctor degree in 1987. During this time, I became distant from our church due to everyday church politics. Whereas being a young man, I walked away. So I moved further and further from my religion.


In 2012, when my career was at its top, I fell ill, and I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. My lungs were retaining fluid, and I could not even walk five feet. It was so bad that I had to resign. I resigned from my position as Assistant Dean of Students at a private four-year college. I could not even leave the house. Thinking back, I believe it was God demanding my attention when nothing worked for ten years. After one year of doctors and testing, I underwent a quadruple bypass. During the one-year home confinement, I started to follow Dr. Charles Stanley and his broadcasts daily. I also started to study the Bible myself. That was something I had never done.

On July 18, 2014, at 5:30 am as they wheeled me into the operating room, I said, “God, Your Will be done in my life. I thank you for your Grace that saved me through faith.” I knew it was God’s plan, asking for my attention for obedience. That was the day my life as a religious person ended, and my relationship with God began.

Renewed in Christ

From that day on, my daily devotion in the mornings includes reading the Bible and a conversation with the Lord. On occasions, on my way to work, the Holy Spirit’s presence was so powerful that the radio broadcasts were directed to me. I have learned to trust God, obey God, and leave all the consequences to HIM.

His Grace and good work on the cross saved me. I intend to live and walk with him, praising him, glorifying him on every turn on the road of salvation.

Called to Study the Bible Online at CLI

I wanted to learn more about the ministry. So I searched online and found the Christian Leaders Institute. With the free ministry training as CLI, I will be equipped to reach others for Christ. It is my sincere belief that I can make a difference in at least one person’s life, where they see a tremendous change. Thank you, CLI!
