A paranormal podcast needs to cover this...

I was reorganizing my bookshelves after taking down my Christmas stuff and I found something unexplained.

A bible.

I know what you're thinking.  "So?  Buffy, you're a lapsed Catholic, you come from a religious family of course you'd have a bible or two around the house."

Because of course you all know my religious background well enough to mock my incredulity.

And you'd be right...I have plenty of bibles around here.  The big family one my mom gave me when I married, a bunch of daily driver bibles (three kids, 24 collective years of CCD and they collect.)  But none of them are NKJV.

Catholics don't do the New Kings James Version.  Ever.  It's not recognized as a legitimate version by the Vatican.

I can hear you now.  "Silly Buffy....your mom was fundy lite after being excommunicated for divorcing your dad.  Surely she didn't use the Catholic bible.  Don't bother Robert Stack about this."

Well, smatypantses....my mom went to some church called Evangelical Free and they used some user friendly version with modern language.  She wasn't a King James Fan.  And her bible was well used from being read daily and well marked and is in a drawer at my sisters house.  I've never seen this bible before.

It looks new, no wear whatsoever.  It was printed the year I was first married so I didn't live at home...I was married to my then husband who was a non-bible collecting Catholic.

It's bound in black leatherish material, gold letters on the cover and spine, slightly larger than an iPhone 6+.

How did it get here?  None of my kids have even veered toward fundyism.

Don't you feel bad for doubting me?  Robert Stack should be all over this unsolved mystery.

Ah, Robert Stack.  Kinda got weird towards the end of his life... he was a friend of a friend.  Refused/unable to housebreak his dogs and according to the friend who visited him, his floor was covered in stretched out disposable diapers, like wall to wall carpet.

Just a little LA gossip.

I do wonder how you got the rogue Bible, though.

If he's going to posthumously solve this mystery my dogs will teach his how to go potty outside.

It's weird right?

If you have to have a ghost that drops weird crap off, chocolates would be better. Or maybe they could take out the trash. BE USEFUL GHOST FRIENDS!

Or at least a nice Opus One, no one is judging here.

Didn't he have prostate cancer?

Since your user profile says you're "Persecuted by Destiny" I say- blame @Destiny. I think she sneaked it into your house while your were on sabbatical, leaving it there in hopes that you would find it and have to come back and post about it. ;) 

Or, could you have gotten it to look up fundy stuff (like maybe when JB made those claims about King James during the Scotland trip)?

It sounds like one of those "give-away" bibles. Some group (maybe the Gideons, I can't remember) gives them out to all the high school graduates in the school district my kids went to.

You give me WAY too much credit!!

Although the @Destiny theory needs investigating...I have requested an accounting for every minute of her time for the last year.

      I got blocked because she posted, on her doodle about work place affairs, how 83% of affairs happen in the work place and I called her out on it. I posted proverbs 19:9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish. And told her she needed to check her facts it’s actually 36%.

      Alatheia is 14 in March. I imagine she's quite a sister-mom at this point, poor thing.

      Bradley peaked in the 80's. I think because of Brad Pitt, born in 1963, and Brad from Fast Times at Ridgemont High (released 1982, Brad was a senior, that makes him born in 1964), I think of Brad as a 60's name.

      I'm still bothered that they used Grace twice for a middle name. 

      Now I'm even more bothered by it since I now know Hannah means grace.

      Thank you, and no it’s not better at all. But I have hope it will be one day and I would choose this over what I endured for too long every day and twice on Sunday. My advice to others now is to never do what I did and get out immediately. But fundie religion teaches you to ignore your gut instincts and to forgive at all costs, even when the cost is you.

       

      I am genuinely sorry to hear that. I just cannot understand that line of teaching and I'm glad to see people rejecting it when it makes no sense. Not that the alternative is simple (as you say).
