Ouch! Another Bible Burn.Category: (general)
Saturday, 26 September 2009

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.

Don't worry, I'm a Christian and I haven't read it cover to cover. I
just know main Bible verses because I look up them on the internet and
I read that chapter.

That's kind of weird. Although, when you're reading something you
might not love, it's hard to get through. Oh, even I can't get through
the bible cover-to-cover. I like reading out different chapters at
different times.
There are more ways to read the bible too. My mom got me this cool
magazine-type old testament. I haven't gotten to reading it yet, but
it has lots of extra stuff.

But I really do want to read it! It seems facisnating. I just can't
seem to. Ho hum, what a drag. I'm reading twelve indivigual books and
three series write now though. Maybe after I finish a few I'll take
another crack at the Holy Book.

I was also like that when I was little. But thank God now, I've
finished the bible's New Testament for about 4 times. (Well...I don't
have any other interesting books to read and I like reading it, so
there.)

I remember somewhere someone said that the devil will always prevent
you from reading the bible. Dunno if that's true though.  ._.

I don't beleive in a devil. There's enough evil in the world, no need
to personify it.

Evil spiritssssssssssss.

I'm Catholic, but I've only read parts of it. That's probably not
good considering I have confirmation this year. D: Stupid essay.
Back on topic: Weird. Never had anything like that happen to me.

I used to read a passage every night.
Even if it was just one and I've read like mostly all of the Bible.
xD
Im not even overly Christian, I just wanted 
to see if I could actually do it. Im Catholic. but..yea. xD

Well that's a bit less pressure on me then, I guess. I still want to
read it though.

If you want to learn about Christianity, there's no rule saying you
can't attend a mass or two -  the priest always reads a Bible verse
and then discuss and explain it.  Within [I believe] three litergical
years, I believe the entire Bible will have been read and explained.
  If you choose to attend even two or three masses a year, you can go
home and read the scripture that was shared in Church that day. The
Bible is big, confusing, outdated and hard to swallow all at once, but
I think that you'd feel the Christian experience a lot better by
attending even jsut one mass than be reading the entire Bible.
   I've always wanted to try different types of worship - I will if
you will!!!!!!!

My friends have described mass as unspeakably unpleasant, and not
just because you have to were goofy outfits. The whole thing, waking
un early, getting pitying looks from the priests, looks described as
"You poor, incredibly impure thing, surrounded by the sin of
Temptation all the time..."

On that note, I would probably do it anyway, but am reluctant to
expect my mom to wake up early to bring me to a Church. Maybe I'll tag
along with Jess sometime.

I've never had a bad experience at mass... then again, I've never
dressed up in a funny outfit, gotten up earlier than 9 (which is
normal for me anyways), or been given a pitying look from a priest. 
*Shrugs*

Hmm...
