Miracles In Micro-Engineering!

At first glance, you might think that this is a Bible on a keychain. However, it is not!


This is actually a Bible micro-engineered for the world's tiniest Christian, Charlie McGibbons, standing at 1 foot 9 inches. McGibbons paid a cool 2 million for a crack team of scientists, engineers, theologians, architects, doctors, actors, scientists, authors, and theologians to micro-engineer the tiny Good Book. The ring is for him to wear around his wrist so he's never without the Word!

Okay, I lied. This isn't actually a tiny Bible with tiny words for the world's tiniest Christian. It actually is the whole Bible on a keychain, which makes me sad. Why does it make me sad? Well, first of all, don't even pretend you can read that, because you can't. What's the point of carrying a Bible you can't read?

People carry stuff like this because it makes them feel holy, not because they actually read or learn from it, or use it for evangelism. You're turning the Bible into something it's not, resigning it to the lower echelon reserved for snarky phrases and rabbits' feet. It's turning the Bible into a lucky charm, and it's not holy, and it's not being faithful to Jesus; in fact, it's not even funny.

Well...the picture's funny, anyway.

I'm getting a kick out of the name on the front of the Bible: "New Good Bible".....is there an "Old Bad Bible"?

Totally off-topic: Gregory, I don't like you when you're mad! Nice avatar.

I was thinking the same thing Joel was. And I left a comment on the candle post; I feel like a doofus for not realizing it was the same Greg from before posting on my site. Duh.

Keep up the good work.
