They burned my bible, what do I do?

They burned my bible, what do I do?

Jokingly some will say print more bibles. But in recent years, cities have erupted in violence because a sacred book was destroyed on purpose. But is this what God wants people to do?

In our sacred book, God warns us of that we should avoid the evils of greed, arrogance and self love. Are we not arrogant when we attempt take retribution when others disagree with us? Do we not have self love, when we care only about ourselves and not the safety of others?

From a religious perspective, do we have God’s permission to act on someone burning a sacred book? Is this justified in any of our sacred books?  Does God take retribution for man’s ignorance?

Burning a bible can be equated with disrespect. This is the dust of arrogance that God reminds us to sweep from our hearts.  From the recipient point of view, we should disapprove the act,  but not show arrogance or anger. Taking retribution is contrary to God’s truth that all mankind was created to live a joyous life.

For the answer to what I would say to the question of what to do. Next time,  keep a few bibles on hand to give out.  Should they request more to destroy, give it to them. Remember God’s truth cannot be destroyed. It can only be revealed. Also thank  God that the perpetrators had the truth in their hands, and pray  that they understand God’s truth one day sooner.

“Evil Sweeping, Save us please, Universal Saving God”
