Humor – Why It Pays To Study Your Bible

Most believers think that they know what the bible says.  After all, their pastor told them so, right?  Very few will actually take the time and the effort to seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance to interpret the original and actual message in the scripture for themselves.

Try the free Greek/Hebrew interlinear Bible software at scripture4all.org to dig into the original texts and see for yourself.

Here’s a funny little anecdote to prove the point…     Enjoy!

 A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church, by hand.

He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript. So, the new monk goes to the Old Abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

 He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives, in a locked vault that hasn’t been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the Old Abbot.

 So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing.

“We missed the

R!

We missed the

R!


We missed the bloody

R!”

 His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young monk asks the old Abbot, “What’s wrong, father?” 

With a choking voice, the old Abbot replies,

“The word was …
