Willy, your denial is a poor effort to (as you often put it) "save."
You say I'm wrong but I cite scripture to support what I said. You only cite what you believe when your "belief" is clearly wrong. You frequently embarrass yourself by calling out, by name, others who know you're wrong; why do you do that, and do it so often?
You say there are "many places Paul says there are special blessings from Bible study" but you don't tell us even one - because you can't. The only place Paul specifically mentions Bible study is in his letter to Timothy when he tells the young man just starting his ministry to study to show himself approved before God for his work; no special blessing is mentioned. (And again, note I don't say what "I believe ...", I simply show you what the Bible actually says!)
2 Tim 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
Your Bible is in your hands. What you do with it is your own responsibility but don't knowingly twist and misquote it because God disapproves of that.
Rev 22:18, 19 "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this (Bible), If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."
Being mistaken about what the Bible says can be innocent but being determined to be wrong is a whole different thing. You quote from your King William Version far too often and that's not just saving face, it's potentially dangerous.
Bless your heart.
