People give each other bibles for presents and people hand out free pocket bibles to promote Christianity. By the time you get around to spring cleaning, you can have four or five extra bibles lying around.
It is tough to get rid of those extra Bibles.
I always go back and forth on whether or not I can throw away a Bible. I am a very superstitious person. I don’t know exactly what happens to someone who throws away a Bible, but I’m pretty sure that it isn’t good. I think God would be angry if he knew that I threw away an extra Bible, when I didn’t throw away Jesse Ventura’s autobiography I Ain’t Got Time To Bleed, an empty box of Wheat Thins, and a three-year old cat calendar.
Recycling a Bible isn’t better than throwing one away. If I recycle a Bible, what is to stop that Bible’s post consumer recycled paper from becoming a pink slip or a dirty magazine. I don’t think that god would be happy if his holy word was recycled and turned into dirty magazines or pink slips. God is against reincarnation by itself. If you add in there Christian paper reincarnating into non-Christian paper, that is a double whammy.
I can’t give my extra Bibles to one of my friends either. That would be putting them in the same situation I am in right now. I am not going to trade wrath from God for wrath from karma.
The easiest way to get rid of extra Bibles is to give them to charity. It is unfair to put a charity in the same predicament you just got out of, but hey charities are supposed to help people.
