Personalized Bibles

While doing some initial sermon prep, I came across something called The Personal Promise Bible. You can special-order a Bible from them where they insert your first name into over 7,000 different spots in the Old and New Testaments. That way, you can understand that God is making promises directly to you, without the confusing suggestion that God's promises might extend to all people.

You can enter your name on their website to see a sample of how the Personal Promise Bible works. This tool is kind of fun.

I wonder if they refuse any requests. If they'd allow more entries, it would nearly be Mad Libs: The Bible

It'd be fun if you could insert your name in place of actual characters, so you could be swallowed by a whale, slay a giant, massacre an entire town of men recovering from being circumcised, etc.

I am officially a sixth grader:

By which He has granted to my butt His precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these my butt may become a partaker of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust. (2 Pet. 1:4)

Even when my butt was dead in trespasses, God made my butt alive together with Christ (by grace my butt has been saved), and raised my butt up with Him and made my butt to sit with Him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. (Eph. 2:5-6)

I had already done "mole on the southern hemisphere of my left butt cheek" and emailed it to friends. Point, Tommy.

Wow. This is amazing. It's also fun to tell them your name is "Satan."

Dave -- great to find you on the internets! It's Mark from Duke Div ('05) and the Episco Center.
