Holy Bible Found In The Dirt In Afghanistan, Marine and His Mom Want To Return It To The Owners

Someone brought this to our attention via facebook, her son found this bible while on patrol in Afghanistan and want to find the rightful owners. If you know who this may belong to, please let us know by using the contact form on the page and we will pass the info on. Seems it was a gift from his mother, so I am sure he would like it back. He is a Marine by the name of Jonathan, seems he was deployed around 2009. We will add more information as it becomes available.

 

 

UPDATE:

The owner of the Bible has been located, He is from California and got out of the Marine Corp in Nov. 2011. He was deployed from March 2010 thru Nov. 2010…. He had it in his cargo pocket while on patrol, and couldn’t find it after a bit. He didn’t know what happened to it. It was in the Afghan dirt for about a year and a half, and was found. His mom was in tears when he told her, she said she prayed over the Bible before she mailed it to him, that he would be safe.

The Marine that recovered the bible, spoke to the other Marine on the phone. They  want to meet in person, so he will take the bible to him.

The Marines mother is very happy the bible was found, it will certainly hold a special place in all of their hearts. Thanks to everyone for the help in getting this taken care of! We have not released any names because we have not be authorized to do so. If the parties involved wish for their names to be release we will do so.

 

UPDATE:

Here is a story about the bible being found, great update for Veterans Day.

  1. Dear Friend,
    Islamic Education,naver teach like you are thinking & like you are doing…its only Islamic phobia…..contect with Dr…

    • A former Ambassador of the USA was quietly ordered out of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia because he was bringing in Bibles and ‘witnessing’ to Arabs that was over 20 yrs ago.

      Since many Muslims cannot read their own Holy Book it is up to the Imam, Cleric or Mullah to give the ‘Prophet’s words to the ‘Faithful’ – and any man cannot be counted on to be totally truthful when they desire superiority over another and can easily DUPE and Incite those that they are charged to lead.

  2. This is what our religion Islam teaches us. We Muslims respects and honor all religions and expect the same from others. We would never even think of any blasphemy as all the holy books are honored by muslims

    • So that Christian Minister isn’t in prison in iran ????
      And the muslim who converted to Christian really shouldn’t be afraid for his life?

      • EJaz. Please note the exact quote.

        Ayatollah Khomeini from 1942

        “Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not disabled and incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of [other] countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world…. Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers] Islam says Kill them [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us Islam says Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender to the enemy Islam says Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Koranic] verses and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

        I think the above quote speaks for itself and the teachings of islam.

    • Ever see the Washington Post (might have been the Times) story about the reporter who hid the video camera in the Saudi Arabian school in Washington, DC and recorded a Day’s “Education” ???? He sent it out to every news outlet in the western world before it was confiscated. Nice article. How “Lying to Infidels doesn’t count”. And WORSE. Nice teachings right in our Nation’s Capital! The school closed for a while after that one.. Reopened at another location I believe.

  3. People, we must remember not all Muslims are bad, just the extremist radical nut jobs. I know that they’re not proud of their psychotic brethren, just like we’re ashamed of ours.

      • What about the Libyan people ousting the extremists? THere is some moderates for you, they just dont get the air time the crazies do because they dont give good ratings.

        Judging all of Islam by crack pots is like judging all of Christianity by Westboro Baptist Church

  4. Right now, the ONLY spark of HOPE in the middle east is LIBYA. The people there have finally FOUND THEIR COURAGE and went after the Extremists and forced them (hopefully) to both LEAVE and DISBAND. God Bless those people. They KNOW what’s at stake and have become the guiding sign of what has to be done. Don’t run from it and hide in another country. Stand up to it and kick it in the teeth. Don’t come running to MY COUNTRY to hide from it, then demand that MY COUNTRY become like your country. Because, to tell the truth, MY COWBOYS aren’t going to let that shit happen here. And you don’t want to see us MAD.

    God (whichever one you pray to) BLESS the LIBYAN PEOPLE.

  5. No,Twin Towers?three towers:) third was come down alone,its internal conspiracy,,heroshima,Nagasaki are more then Twin Towers..?Don’t do that kind of work its terrorism.

  6. The hell with the politics… It is my fervent hope that a Marine can be reunited with the bible that his Mother gave him with LOVE!

  7. In the End, i would like to talk with American’s peoples,please,open the mind & eyes,Americans are lovable peoples,now a lot peoples hate?why…..,9/11 why muslims??after 9/11 which power get the benifects?9/11 possible of a terroriest group?..
    if the USA Drons atteck killed n burned the innocent peoples then they atteck on us then we call them Terroirest” its justic?if any muslim harm anybody,we are talking about ISLAM,if any Christen”like norway killing” we naver talk about christen educations?becuase any religion dont tech like that,…

  8. You Know ……… this was a real awesome feel good story to have read – and I am so grateful that this Marines Bible given to him by his mom will be returned to him, What a Joyful story! one of those Feel good moments after all the years of this conflict and the loss of lives.

    – but upon reading so many of the foul mouthed negative political bashing comments, you all took a good thing and soured it! ~~ (coming from a US Navy Mother of a Lt – who has spent many hours praying for the safety of my many times over deployed son as well as all those deployed, and their own families and Mothers! And am reminded every single day of our Gold Star Mothers who may have only gotten the bible or few personal effects of her son/daughter, or those Purple Heart Mothers who watch their child as they struggle with their injuries on a daily basis as they work to find a new normal. Shame on you who have to turn such a good thing, a good story, into a wall of comments about own selfish selves and your thoughts – and trust me – I coulda’ swore at ya all, like the best of ’em!

    • I agree with you completely. Not once did Jesus criticize people of other faiths. Instead, he welcomed them in love. Indeed, Jesus’ harshest words were aimed at those in his own community who were hypocrites: visibly trying to be holy while living selfishly. As Christians, we are called to love those who hate us, even the extremists, to turn the other cheek, and to strive to live at peace with all men. There is joy in heaven when even one extremist repents – something that appears to be lost among many of the bigoted and offensive comments posted here. God bless you, m’am, and God bless your son for his service.

  9. Thank God it was recovered and returned to it’s proper home. I pray that they cherish, and keep this story in their family for generations to come.
