Equivocation

How would you manage if suddenly the Bible was banned today in the US and eventually worldwide?

Hola damas y caballeros. The question on this topic's title. Had interesting conversation at school when some friends brought this up.

No physical or digital Bible of any verison.

A ban of a Bible translation could happen. A ban of the Bible itself is most unlikely, because too many would oppose it, even literary non-religious people. Having said that, we are in uncharted waters, with many things that we thought would never see the light of day becoming reality. 

exJW’s who oppose sometimes forget that their fight is not merely against their former faith, but against the Bible itself.

The best recourse for the situation you propose is to read it regularly now so that you will retain, even memorize large portions of it. Have a stash somewhere, but in the event of a serious ban, you would not be able to easily or routinely consult it.

It depends for how long this would be. I am assuming just for a short time.....few years?.....So I think we would manage just fine! As long as we keep to the laws and principles that make up the foundation of the Bible that all JWs are familiar with, and encourage, remind, and support one another in upholding these standards.

Also most JWs have a Bible trained conscience that operates with or without having access to a Bible.

Um Tom, actually some Ex JW's use the BIBLE to prove that the GB / Writing dept / JW Org, is so so wrong. 

And some of us are not fighting 'our former faith', because our Faith is in God through Jesus Christ. Some of us just know that the JW Org is not such a good place to be right now. 

I love Anna's last sentence

Quote "Also most JWs have a Bible trained conscience that operates with or without having access to a Bible. "

Some Ex JW's also have that same  Bible trained conscience that operates with or without having access to a Bible. 

There are even people in the world that have such a conscience, even though they have little knowledge of God.

Equ' If it's not in your heart then a hundred bibles will do you no good.

I start off the day with one or two. It doesn’t help.

I should point out that the exJWs I ‘bash’ (how unkind a word) are the ones that go atheist. Not all do, but they interest me more. They join forces with ‘apostates’ of all new religious movements to fight common cause against them all.

The book barely mentions the non-atheist variety, perhaps because they, too, will be eventual targets of the anti-cultists.
