This may be true, or you may be surprised that it turns out not to be the case at all. It may even be that some of the people you anticipate ridiculing you are looking for some of the very answers found in the Bible without realizing where these answers are found.
Nevertheless, there are times when we realize that it is important for us to do something that others might not understand. If you are sensing a desire to read through the Bible, it is because God has something vital and life-changing to show you in His words found there. Do not let your fear of being ridiculed keep you from reading something which can be so profoundly significant to your life and the lives of others.
