Progress, not perfection…

Posted: January 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

About 3 months ago God saved my Dad and he became a Christian at 57 years old.  The other day we spent about a half hour reading the Bible together.

Both of these events are miracles that frankly, defy words.

Anyway, on the lighter side, today I get this voicemail from my Dad who was a non-practicing Catholic prior to his conversion:

” Joe. It’s Dad. Hey, something’s bothering me that I need to know about. I know that Catholics use a different Bible than the one Protestants use…I’m not sure what’s different…I should…but you could probably tell me. Anyway, this Bible you got me, is this one of those Martin Luther King Jr. Bibles?  I want to make sure I’m using the right one.”

Part of me wanted to talk church history with him. Part of me wanted to skip it and be there to watch him ask for that translation at the Christian bookstore. I think I need to repent…
