    I love making notes and underlines in my Bible! It’s shows me where I’ve been throughout it’s pages and what I was thinking or doing at the time. Also if there’s a gap of underlines or notes, it often brings up the question in my own mind of why I haven’t discovered anything useful from that spot in Scripture and provokes a deeper study into it’s verses.

    Interestingly, just a few days ago, a friend rebuked me for marking the pages of my Bible with the argument that making notes adds to the Scripture your interpretation of any given verse and in the future, you’re more likely to take your previously written note at face value rather then researching the verses again.

    I think maybe there’s some validity to this argument. What do you think?

    Interesting idea, I had never considered that. I guess as long as someone can mark their Bible and remain teachable, then there’s no problem. Anyway, notes can always be written elsewhere, ie a journal. I keep notes on computer when preparing messages, but I often still write in my Bible for personal benefit. :)
