The Word of God

Which is more valuable: the written word of God or the spoken word of God?

Obviously, the spoken word of God, in the form of Sunday sermons, is more valuable.
You simply have to follow the money and the time.

Christians spend billions of dollars every year to hear the Word.
A Bible is often a one time expenditure.

Many spend more time listening to sermons than reading the Bible for themselves.
Some try to read the Bible through in a year, but most never make it.
It takes about 10 minutes a day to do this. About an hour per week. Whereas, going to church can take 2-3 hours, including prep and travel time.

I guess Jesus was such a poor communicator that the words He spoke can only be understood through an interpreter.

Is it really so difficult to read the Bible for yourself and apply it to your life?
