Even if you are not a “religiously inclined” person, you may find some of these facts interesting. And no matter which religion you might follow, it’s still interesting to learn about other religions. The English Parliament decreed in 1401, that any citizens who were caught with an English-language Bible were to be burned alive. The King James Bible was first printed in 1611. The King James Bible was “translated out of the original tongues and with the former translations diligently compared and revised.” This is what it says on the first page of my KJV Bible. The Bible was originally written in the Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic languages and was not translated into English and other languages for thousands of years. Taking baths were not popular in Europe for about twelve centuries because the Catholic church decreed, in the year 500 A.D., that it was a sin to expose your skin – even to yourself. Hmmmm. Did you know that there are over 1200 different “Christian” denominations in the U.S.? I wonder what Jesus would think about that? The apostle Paul said: "Now I exhort you, brothers, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ that you should all speak in agreement and that there should not be divisions among you, but that you may be fitly united in the same mind and in the same line of thought." Every book of the standard Bible mentions wine except the book of Jonah. The book of Isaiah even explains how to plant a good vineyard.
