Well, I guess the proverb ("Train up a child in the way he/she should go: and when he/she is old, he/she will not depart from it.") did not take in your case. I sorry to hear that. Merely winning Bibles at one time does not mean learning what it meant. It may be a bore now (and frankly , when I was young, the same here), but I hope you never have to realize too late what it was that those people who were giving out the Bible were trying to do for you. In any event, though you are not so inclined, Jesus did the same for you as He did for all; realizing the necessity of embracing His love before it is too late is the only thing to be hoped for now, further realizing that the greatest belief in His day was found in the disenfranchised women of His day. Now, I think I'll take my nap too.
