If Bibles were toasters we could go to the Christian bookstore and buy pretty covers for them. The covers would have zippers and places for a tiny padlock. On Sundays the pastor would make lots of toast. Some of it would be eaten in the church building. There would probably be crumbs and crusts on the floor where people sat. Most of the rest of the week people would not eat toast. And then once in a while a believer would encounter someone who eats lots of toast but never goes to church. When visitors come over to that person's house he would offer them toast. It would be politely refused and over time the person who makes his own toast would learn to keep it to themselves.
