The one in the Bible and the Living Christ are the same for me.
I don't worship the Bible, I worship Christ.
I read and study the Bible (not as often as I should) to better understand what Christ would have us do.
English Standard Version (ESV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
