I'm making this as short as possible so bare with me please. A woman had a troubled son he moved out because cops were after him.
The cops went to his Moms house thinking he was there. So they tear gassed the house all up then broke in destroying the house in search of him. Soon the woman returned home seen the mess and said my son(who they were looking for moved out long ago) So the cops destroyed a house whn no one was home for nothing and did not pay to fix it.


Soon she fixed the house up not long after that it brned down. Talk about bad luck. And after the fire the only thing that survived the fire was a bible!


Is this something spirtual or what.


And this just happened!  It  was in our paper  the bible conained picstures of family in it also and thats  the onl thing that survived the fire.

I don't understand what is supposed to be proof of. Would it have been equally spiritual if it was the Qu'ran, or the Chronicles of Zarathrustra, or the autobiography of Aleister Crowley? Or a saucepan?

I find that hard to believe unless the bible was made of steel or something. Bible's just a book among others. You can claim it holy but all the text in it was made by men.

That's one weird story tongue.gif wonder how the Bible survived the fire: Where was it in the house when the house got burned down? On a shelf with other books, or maybe in a drawer?

Honestly, this sounds like one of those Christian urban legends.

Coincidence! Too many houses and CHURCHES have burned down with bibles in them (often mulitple bibles)  that DID NOT survive the fire.  What would be your explanation of that? rolleyes.gif



Our earth is degenerate in these latter days.  There are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end.  Bribery and corruption are common,   Children no longer obey their parents.  Every man wants to write a book, and the end of the world evidently is approaching.

So 2Pac, you are saying that the entire house and all its contents were reduced to ash, except the book?

Or, were some things left relatively unharmed, including the book?

Yup. One object could survive the fire anytime, but because it is the Bible or any holy book, it is instantly thought to be a mighty act of God.

One summer day, on a Sat. when I was ten, me and two of my brothers and another kid form the neighborhood were playing around with one of those eight balls. You know the ones that you ask a question and then flip it over to read the answer on the bottom glass part. Well we, inturn, asked a lot of stupid stuff, then my brother asked if our house will burn down. It said 'No'. Then the kid with us asked if his house would burn down. It said 'Yes'.  About five seconds later, we saw smoke pouring out of the house next door to ours; which was his Sisters house. We ran into our house and got out parents and they called the fire department. My oldest Sister ran into the burning house and came out with a baby that was left in there napping when the couple went off to make a run to the store.  Yeah, I know, what idiots. They had left something cooking on the stove top also and it had caught fire.

After it was put out, it was seen to be in pretty bad shape. The house had to be demolished later. But we went in and looked at the damage. I went straight to the front of the house to the living room area. I saw a coffee table that had a Bible in the middle of it on a dorsi. The table was burned and even the dorsi was melted around the edges, but the Bible was not touched. Even as a kid I knew I was looking at something profoundly significant.
Could have been lots of reasons why that it was not burned, including maybe one of the fireman put it there after finding it in a drawer somewhere.
I guess I will never know for sure really.
