Obama is going to be sworn in with two Bibles. There is all kinds of symbolism with Abraham Lincoln's and Martin Luther King Jr.'s Bibles. Biden is using a Bible that has been in his family for 120 years. I have to say that if a Bible were being used it would never last 120 years, and God intended the Bible to be believed and respected, opened and read, and studied and lived, not collected to be used symbolically. What is the point of having people swear on the Bible when they don't even believe it? How much better would we be in this nation if instead of having public officials lay their hands on a Bible before taking office we expected them to read it, believe it, and live by it or we wouldn't vote them into office in the first place. It always amazes me that we think this means something. If a person believes the Bible there is no need to have them swear with a hand on it, and if they don't it is useless. People could swear on a stack of Bibles, or the original manuscripts (if we had them) and it won't matter at all.
