Im into daily Bible study. And I underline, highlight, and make margin notes, on passages that has deep meaning for me, or that I would like to share with others. Starting next month, I will be making local appearances in front of various groups. My question is: Would it be proper if I use my personal Bible, with all its markings and highlights, to preach ...... does it looks bad? ...... or is it more proper to use ANOTHER one that is free of markings and highlights, etc. I mean, when you see Joel Olsteen, John Haggee, and other preachers on TV preach, when the camera is angled over their shoulders .... the Bible page is seen always free of markings or highlights or anything else. What is your view on this? Should a minister have 2 bibles: one for study and another for public preaching? OR is it okay, and also public acceptable, to use the SAME? What say you?
