Bible as a means of livelihood for some.

Bible as a means of livelihood for some.

I have, in part 1, briefly discussed the need for not assuage the importance of Bible by loose and mollified interpretations. “As also in all his epistles speaking in them of these things; in which are some thing’s hard to be understood, which they that are unlearnt and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.” (Peter 3:16). 

In this respect I must add that most Protestants use the Bible as a means of livelihood, or to muster money or to win people to support their parochial and recalcitrant views. 

The Bible is handled with contempt and insulted by throwing, folding, shaking, running about from one end to other end of the stage with it, putting it under armpit, uttering, shouting, laughing while holding it on hand etc. are common scenes in the TV evangelism.
