Out of all the teachings in the Bible, teachings that touch practically every aspect of our lives, why did one very specfici item, "wearing nothing offensive", spring forward?
This particular case might better be referred to as "Bible-Whackers" as in getting whacked over the head (literally) with said Bible. Then again, the term "whacking" does have a prurient form of usage or two that some might object to directly associating with the (in-this-case, Flying - or Falling?) Word of God.... Lol [--Life-long R/C. Smh....]
This is why people burn churches down :) lookup Nero throwing Christians to the lions and making them into human candles
Rome burned during Nero's time due to crowded vendor tent conditions at Circus Maximus, lack of fire-fighting technology at that point in civilization, prevalent use of wood for housing (not brick/ concrete), overcrowding of housing in general (both in terms of occupancy & minimal distance between building ie, being slums/ ghettos), and ironically (?) just following the Senate's recent rejection of Nero's plans to tear down 1/3 of Rome to build his desired Neropolis. The search for assigning (political) blame commenced after 9 days of fire which burned up 2/3 of Rome....
Love hurts ... even from the Lord above! LOL! --Life-long R/C [--Channeling RichardPencil] Perhaps the sender wanted OP to be prepared with a personally-preferred-i.e.,-chosen resource ahead of time??? Was anything yelled out during said "drive-by? (lol)" On my college campus, I was once handed a pocket-sized edition of the Gideon Bible. Alas, part-way thru it, one had to turn it upside-down to resume reading it legibly. Then repeat once more later on. Needless to say, it wasn't exactly a big hit or an easily-consulted reference. Lol Perhaps OP's "benefactor" didn't like that particular copy of his Bible for some reason and was simply trying to get rid of it, but OP was literally an innocent bystander er, pedestrian??? So many questions per said provider of God's Word, so few answers.... (If only there was someplace/ some thing to look/ to consult for finding them.... Lol) [--Again channeling The RP....]
