It is Sinful to Skip Passages in Reading
I do believe that it is sinful to skip passages in reading because you are not accomplishing what you are intending to accomplish. When you skip passages in reading you are teaching yourself to fail by not thoroughly completing the task. Even though failing is ok, it is not ok when you're simply not trying. An example would be when you really don't feel like reading an entire passage just to answer a question on a test at school. You then ask a friend "what paragraph is the answer in?" or simply "what's the answer to the question?" You just skipped a passage to unfairly answer a question, which is called cheating, and that is sinful. Skipping passages is wrong because it means that you are being cheating and being lazy which are both sins.
