What can be done with old Bibles?
Often, however, an old Bible can be repaired easily, and many organizations—churches, prison ministries, and charities—are set up to recycle and reuse them. If your Bible has significant sentimental value, you might want to consider having it restored.
Is it a sin to burn a Bible?
It is disrespectful to burn the word of God. If you burn a Bible some way God will destroy you and you will be judged by the very book you just burned. That’s the way old Bibles are disposed of. But there must be a special fire and brief reverent ceremony (even just a prayer at the time of burning).
What happens if you throw a Bible on the floor?
If it’s literally just dirt, you can brush it off. If it’s mud, you might be able to salvage it by wiping it off. If it’s the floor of a public restroom, you grab a bunch of paper towels to pick it up with and drop it in the trash. It’s the ideas inside the Bible that make it special, not the paper.
What happens if you burn a Bible?
If you burn a Bible, it simply turns to ashes. A book burning does not stop the message therein from proceedig on and accomplishing its purpose. You have ashes to tidy up.
Is it OK to throw away an old Bible?
Another way to dispose of a Bible is to respectfully cremate it (similar to how many national flags are retired). Though some who wish to disrespect or desecrate God’s word do so by burning it, there is nothing inherently wrong with burning the physical Bible so long as proper solemnity and respect are observed.
What is my old Bible worth?
Value: The value of an old leather Bible in very good condition with no family records or other factors that would increase its value might be worth about $10 to $20 dollars. If the Bible contains family records, or other important factors it could be worth from $20 up to a large amount.
What does God say about incest?
Incest in the Bible refers to sexual relations between certain close kinship relationships which are prohibited by the Hebrew Bible. These prohibitions are found predominantly in Leviticus 18:8–18 and 20:11–21, but also in Deuteronomy.
Where in the Bible does it say not to burn the body?
The Bible does not clearly define about cremation as a means to dispose of the dead. However, there is no scriptural prohibition of cremation in the New Testament. The Bible neither favors nor forbids the process of cremation.
Is it biblical to pray with candles?
The practice of lighting a candle to pray is not in the Bible. The first disciples did not light candles for this purpose. Candles were used only for lighting, because there was no electric light. They were not used to help with prayer.
What is the respectful way to dispose of an American flag?
The United States Flag Code (4 USC Sec 8 Para (k) Amended 7 July 1976) states: “The Flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.” Burning isn’t the only way to dispose of a flag, though.
Why is the paper in the Bible so thin?
Paper. Because of their length, Bibles have to be printed on very thin paper in order to achieve a suitably compact book. Some Cambridge reference Bibles have wide margins, so that users can make notes against the Bible text.
