It's a funny thing really... No matter how many times I try to read the Bible cover
to cover, I've never held one for more then about a minute and a half. Ever. Maybe
there's something to this whole "the bible burns the flesh on non beleivers" thing.
I've never been Christian, but my mom was always very firm about me being educated on
other religions. So about three years ago I finally said "You know, Christian day
care when I was six and independent research on the internet isn't enough. I'll just
read the bible cover to cover."
It never works. The first time I was grossed out by it being bound in leather and put
it back on the shelf immediately. The next time I realized it was fake leather, but I
heard my step dad come in, and while my mom is okay with me looking at her book
shelf, he's not, so I put the bible back and fled the room. I've tried a bunch of
times just this week, but every time I suddenly realize I have something very
important to do right that second, and I forget all about what I was doing. But
afterwards, I never really remember what it was I had to do. Last time, I think it
was something about a pencil.
Whether the phone rings for me, or my mom calls my name saying can I please do some
chore, or my cat starts meowing, or I suddenly feel too tired to read... It's always
something. Something always prevents me from keeping physical contact
with a bible for more then about ninty seconds. I've never timed it of course, but
somewhere around there. Weird right?
And then there's all the times I was about to go and grab the book of Genesis or the
Old Testament, and I suddenly thought "now why would I do that? I think someone told
me it was boring at some point. Who said that...? Was it Jess? Or Marge? No, Jess is
Christian, and Marge would never read it... Hm..."
It's kinda freaky deaky. Maybe I'll just read an online version. I get the sneaking
suspicion that you can't cheat these things so easily though.
It's probably nothing really. I'm sure I'll get around to it at some point.
