Hello Visionary ,
I just had a wake up call , I had never seen a bible till I was married !
My husband had one , when he was in the service.
The priest at times would come down the isle before mass, carrying the "bible"
over his head. I got a glimpse of when opened, it was in Latin I believe ?
Not English, but I do not know what it really was ? Since the words on the page
were quite large, and in comparing to this one page would only have about two to four lines. I would think , it was really just a prayer book , and I believe I could take off my glasses and read with out them , and then some.
My husband and I have come a long way, we have at least five bibles in our home.
One at the computer , two in the car for church , two for home bible study.
The sad thing, is
I do not have any idea if any of our parents and brothers and sisters were saved? Since we did not get saved our self till we were in our fifties.
What that church ? or Pastor put people through is no
Sin ~ If you went to another church, keep away from people who do not go to
the same kind of church. We called him father ......... [no bible , no idea]
We would be brain washed if we went to another church !!! That is what they were doing to us.
Sorry to go on like this.
You just cant take it for granted what other churches are doing !
I know I have been there, and over the years I keep realizing how many dumb things that keep coming up , I had forgotten !
