In case you didn't already know that x)
Seriously, it rocks my socks right off.

I'll be ordering my first bible as a Christmas gift to myself, a proper Bible...…

Oh the irony.
I've been reading this book online (nonstop) for the past couple days between my classes and exams and just love it. What a great resource.
It brings me way way back to when I was a kid, like 7 or 8, and read the Bible for the first time xD
(because you guys seem to like my long stories?)

It was at our county fair, and I was always there like 24-7 showing animals and crafts and all that. Anyways, there were these buildings where people could advertise, sell stuff, and have booths for random things. Of course, there were always a couple religious booths as well. I would wander around these buildings on my own when I was bored, honestly my parents didn't care where I was lol, they'd just kinda dump me off somewhere.

Well I usually would just pass up the religious booths because 1) they never had any free stuff to give away, like other tables which would give out free pencils or candy and stuff, and 2) because I cared jack shit about religion. Didn't interest me in the slightest.

But of course, these people would see a child like me running around by herself and immediately the first thing they think of doing is STOPPING ME and asking me IF I KNOW OF JESUS. I mean for serious, these people can be super predatory and creepy.

So anyways, I just kind of look at them and say "...No?" because honestly I had HEARD of Jesus but it didn't ever know exactly who he was or what he was all about. Of course, the their eyes light up and now they start giving me the lecture. I don't remember what they were talking about, but you can imagine. Eventually I get bored of them so I have to interrupt them and tell them I had to leave. Nothing they were saying made any sense, and they never actually shut up so I could say something to them. It was a total stand-here-and-listen, and I mean do they seriously think an 8 year old has the attention span for that sort of thing? x)

Well, I'm just about to take off, but they stop me again. "Wait! Take one of these," they say, and hand me a mini version of the Bible. It was a legit Bible, but one of the of the cheap pocket versions that are small enough to carry around. "This is for free?" I asked, and they said yeah, they were giving them away. I grinned like an idiot. Free books? Why didn't they say something about that sooner? Standing there and listening to them ramble on for 20 minutes was totally worth it now. I would have stood there for a whole hour if I knew I was getting a book out of it, I fucking loved books.
So later that day when my mom asked what kind of free stuff I picked up I told her, "I had a really good day! This lady gave me a free book!" and my mom was like "...are you SURE it was free?" lol. And then I took it out of my bag and showed it to her. Naturally, she knew exactly what it was, but didn't tell me. She just handed it back and told me and said she thought it was cool. I was like "That was really generous of them, wasn't it? I've never been given a free book before!" and she was just like "Mmhm" xD.

Anyways, it's safe to say that reading the Bible on my own was pretty scarring xD I think that in church they try to dumb a lot of stuff down for kids or leave out the nasty parts, but that was basically the first thing I was exposed to. I was able to read maybe a few chapters of it before I decided I just couldn't anymore. I always finished books, but I just couldn't with this one. It was appalling and disgusting. And also boring, if that's even possible.

It wasn't my first exposure to Christianity though, because all or most of my close friends were Christian. When we were in grade school, I had a friend who asked me why I didn't go to church and I said "why should I?" and she wasn't really sure herself either. Apparently though, she asked her pastor about it and he told her "if your friend doesn't come to church, she's going to burn in Hell". She actually seemed pretty worried about me, because she didn't want me to go to Hell, or become a Jew, or worship the Devil, which were all things her pastor told her that I would do if I didn't come to church. I realize now, that what he was dong to my friend was nothing more than child abuse. She was much more shaken up than I was because the words "Jew" "Devil" or "Hell" held no weight to me. I had no idea what they meant. I saw she was upset it, so I knew they meant something bad, but even when I asked her what a Jew was, she didn't even really know herself.
I could go on, and on, and on, about the many experiences I've had with Christianity, especially as a kid, so this journal doesn't do it justice. It's only a fraction of the weird stuff I've seen or been through.
I feel like anyone who reads the Bible with an open mind would be able to see just how fucked up it is, and how harmful it can be when in the hands of stupid people.

Which is why I'm super excited to be getting this version, which highlights all of the terrible, awful things it contains.

I'm sure there is at least one person who is going to be slightly pissed off at this, but it's my opinion, and my experiences, and you are more than welcome to give your two cents as well x)
