Why do people Answer questions with Bible quotes?

If it's an opinion question? If it's a non-religious question? Even if it's a non-Christain question? To everyone: any ideas why?

"You shall know them by their works." Seems an appropriate response sometimes also. I'm not a bible thumper but it would seem that many people just want to let others know that they read the bible and appear to relate to it's wisdom. I highly doubt that people will eventually be judged on their memorization or reading skills. I myself find it annoying because it's mostly repetitive or excessive pasting instead of being; "briefly"in their own words.Some of the bible seems to contradict itself or be missing something more anyway.

this is a very easy question to answer for me- sometimes people quote the Bible to actually try and appear "holy" even when the question is not biblical- however- I will tell you if you follow Christ, which I do, there is no separation from sacred and secular. I don't follow the Bible only on sundays, or when the talk is "religious" I must follow scripture even when I am not talking religion- because Jesus is life to me, and I cannot live a sacred life, one moment and secular life the rest of the time. It has nothing to do with worldly intellect, however, that does not mean we are not wise.

nicely I do the two, I quote the bible whilst giving explainations for the way it pertains to my answer. the reason I do it is because of fact, if i'll minister to somebody, i've got the desire to make particular i'm telling them God's attitude and not some thing from my own interpretation. numerous folk have carried out that and consequently the christian faith is in all distinctive instructions. additionally on occasion when I say some thing is in the bible, people attempt to be confusing and say "practice me cuz i've got on no account seen that," So I in basic terms quote to shop myself it gradual.

For Christians, the Bible is the handbook for just about any area in life. If I have a problem, and the answer is in the Bible, mostly I do what the Bible says, for in my experience, the Bible has always been right. Whether the problem is with money, beliefs, relationships, work, internet, whatever, the Bible is right everytime. Most other answers are just opinions, but sometimes there is only one right answer.

Possibly because for generations, people have found answers to life's questions, even non religious questions, in the Bible. And why isn't God's Opinion good enough for you?

It is because they are so completely wrapped up in their church and what the pastor is telling them, that they have finally become incapable of free thought and reasoning. At this point they accept what they have been told or what is written and, as a result eventually become judgmental. Sad but true.

It is people who cannot intelligently answer anything for themselves that use bible quotes to answer everything. Most Christian faiths have brainwashed people to depend on the book to answer everything in their lives.

Could it be that the questions that are asked, concern the bible and God? How else would you expect someone to answer a question regarding God and the bible without using the bible?
