@#10 ... But seeing a modern self described American Christian who doesn't own a Bible despite clearly being rich is like seeing a mansion with it's windows boarded up.
I don't know what's going on there but it's creepy. ...
Creepy is not a description I might ascribe to that.
Maybe they are in to an e-book version of the Bible, and they have leased an e-book version of the Bible.
The thing now seems to be, if you cannot view it on your smartphone, it does no exist.
There are times when I hold my Bible to my chest, near my heart. I do not know why, or even try to understand why I do that.
But I will say, and admit, that there is something about that book that is different and special.
The aspect of that which makes me wonder is, why do I do that. Why does it seem to bring comfort to me?
It is definitely not due to what I see and hear from current Christian preachers.
Yeah, there's more than we know or understand.
I'll leave it there for now...
