Bible Reading Can Ward Off Dementia!

Researchers believe that people can decrease their chances of developing memory and cognitive loss by keeping their brains active. One study showed that people who are mentally and physically active significantly reduce their risk of developing dementia.

Reading, language learning, word puzzles, and stimulating conversations build reserves of active brain cells which delay and/or diminish the symptoms of diseases such as Alzheimer’s. (Television viewing doesn’t help—in fact, some studies show it contributes to brain atrophy.)

Reading the Bible can play a significant role in brain development, but it has even more to offer:

Romans 10:17 says: “faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.”

Reading the Bible (God's Love Notes) offers us dual benefits: it affects both the mind and the spirit, building brain cell reserves and “faith reserves.”
