Bacon of the Bible II
There has been more response to the “replace a Bible word with ‘bacon’” post than to any of my recent philosophical posts. I’m not sure what that means, but I’m happy everyone’s having fun! (I promise we’ll get back to the serious stuff soon.)
To keep the ball rolling, here are a few more that I thought of or that were suggested to me by others. This time, each statement has a different word turned to ‘bacon,’ but I’ll leave it to your Biblical knowledge to figure out what the word is.
