Church Bible survives Fire

I find these stories amazing, when everything is ruined except for a bible or cross.

Would you like to share a story where a church was burnt or destroyed but the bible was found in good condition?

One of the things that did survive, a bible. "I went inside our vestibule and we had a table in there and in the table we kept some things, just odds and ends. The whole table was burnt and a firefighter went in and pryed open and we found this little bible in there and it doesn't even smell like smoke, has no type of damage to it," says life-long church member Isaiah Screetch.

  • How do we know they aren't lying? People have done crazier things in the name of "proving" their religion.

  • That is a crucifix carried out of the church. Mass had ended just 30 minutes before the fire was detected. There were choir members inside the church but nobody was hurt. That is blessing from God.

  • Don't know about bible's, but I have heard of other things that have come out of house unscathed after a fire.

  • When I was 9 years old, my aunt and uncle's house was burned all the way to the ground while they were at work. The only thing that was not ruined in the fire was an 11x13 picture of Jesus Christ, a picture where he is knealing towards Heaven and there is a ray of light.
