The Bible is fireproof!


I love how religious rubes cling to anything that has the hint of a miracle as proof of the solvency of their belief. So much for blind faith!

A family living in a mobile home had an electric fire that destroyed everything inside about out, but while sifting through the ashes, they found this burnt out Bible, and immediately thought something miraculous had happened.

The family didn’t want to go on camera Sunday, but one member says, “The Bible is proof that God’s word can’t be destroyed.”

I think the “miracle” would have been your mobile shack not bursting into flame and destroying what crappy posessions you already owned. Now the only thing you have is a Bible that’s burned to shit, and a re-inforced belief God is so powerful he can prevent his “word” from getting 100% torched. Bask in the works of this omnipotent deity and his endlessly impressive parlor tricks!

    having previously torched phonebooks, thick-ass books are imposable to destroy without large quantities of petrol.

    Lol!

    When I was very very young, I asked my dad, “So, the Bible is the word of god?” and he said “…yeah…” (He was raised Catholic but never gave a crap about it, really.) I asked, “So if I tore a page out of the Bible, would I be punished? Would I go to hell?” and he said “…no….” So I asked, “What would happen?” and he said “Well, nothing!” …That’s when I knew it was all bullshit. I was 4 years old!

    Yay!

    This was probably the only thing resembling a book that these people owned. As a professional firefighter, I can tell you that books often resemble the one in this picture after a house fire. You can tell from the warping of the cover and the blackened edges of the pages that this book was exposed mostly to smoke as well as some radiant heat.

    “Can’t be destroyed” is a bold phrase. I’d like to them to continue trying to destroy the book to prove this hypothesis. Then we’ll have one less ignorant family with a bible.

    When directly exposed to flames, bibles burn just like any other book.

    Otherwise, Christians would be celebrating bible-burning attempts instead of complaining about them, because the attempts would only demonstrate their god’s protective powers. ;)

    Suppose you are all correct and there is no God, most Christians will have just spent a little extra time in Church and tring to do good. Suppose you are wrong and there is a Heaven and Hell. I know a Bible will burn like any other book but, God does say His Word will not return void. Jesus Loves You Jn 3:16

    @Wendy, I do not what age you were when you posted that comment of yours in 2010. But, let me tell you, you have not grown and remained to have the intellect of less than a 4 year old…That was a very unfitting example and does not have any rationale.

    @Shamrock, you may be right. The family may be unaware that it doesn’t matter if a Bible is accidentally burnt, the word of God lives in the heart and one’s life and can never be burned but only burn away all maliciousness and sin. But there is a possibility why this has only been exposed to smoke and not fire. It can still be God’s intervention to strengthen their faith at that time. One can qualify to comment on the existence of God, only when they sought to experience God. Being outside, it may qualify one to be an atheist but cannot qualify to mock Christian faith..

    @Anonymous Atheist, no your reasoning is not cohesive. Why would a believing Christian attempt to burn a Bible even if that it does not burn? The moment, one attempts that proves that he is not a Christian, isn’t so? He proves to be not an atheist but rather devil possessed in his intentions and NOT a Christian.

    @Zombie, I guess we will have one less atheist if by now you have believed in Jesus Christ and His work on cross to save each of us. Or you would become a little more considerate atheist if you won’t attack on that one family or similar people who believe in God because of their own convictions that God had worked out in them, which should not affect your life negatively. I prefer the first :-)

    @Wolferahm, but know that you stand destroyed without any element of fire or Petrol if you have not believed in Jesus Christ. That is the status of any human who consciously ignores the gospel and only time will prove it. May God convict you in your own heart to come to God through Jesus and may you accept His grace in your life and may you know how loving He is no matter what bad words you said. Praise to God and welcome out of that irrational, inconsiderate, and rude atheist community if you are a Christian now.
