This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Hi all,

So this is a celtic style cross with an opened Bible at its base. By clicking on the object, you will have access to a variety of Bible related things.

Catigorized scripture

You can pick from one of eight catigories to get a scripture that might apply to you or your sim in your situations.

Random Scripture

You can select this option to get a random scripture that will be pulled from a library of 128 scriptures.

Learn about Christians

Rob and I talk a little bit about what it means to be a Christian for us.

Note: We do not assume that everyone sees being a Christian the way we see it, nor do we want them to.

All scriptures will give you two options after reading it, if you choose to get more verses. You can either get a random verse from the catigory you are in or get a random verse from the total 128 verses available.

This is a bigger project than I have worked on in the past, so if there are any issues that you see with this when you use it, please report them immediatley to me via IM.


If you like this object, please take time to say thanks and leave a comment. Thanks to you all.

Oh, that's really cool. Not the sort of thing I'd use personally, not being Christian (or religious in general) but the beauty of the object and the work that has been put into it is appreciated. Nicely done.

Thanks...I think it is super cool that you can appreciate it even though you don't share the faith that was behind it. Thanks Hysterical paroxysm.

Realy cool idea and perfect for a church thank you for making this greatobject

They tell us everything's alright and we just go along;
How can we fall asleep at night when something's clearly wrong?
When we can feed a starving world with what we throw away;
But all we serve are empty words that always tastes the same...

Your cross is so wonderful. I can't wait to read your book in my game.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

I think it is a wonderful idea to create such a thing. As a Christian myself (Irish Catholic), I praise you for creating such a object. Thank you for your work and effort you put into this.

Please check me out at Sims Crossing Please do not upload any of my lots,clothing, or other creations to other sites!

I too want to thank you for the post. Been a fan of your items for a while now, keep up the Good Work!

And remember my brothers and sisters in Christ - there's a difference between Religion and Christianity. Christianity is about having a close and personal relationship with Christ - religion doesn't have it, nor does it understand it.

What a wonderful idea, and you executed it so well! Excellent work; it's nice to see someone making Christian objects.

And Baskar, well said! I completely agree. Religion and Christianity have nothing to do with each other.

Sup?

This is really cool! the idea is totally original. Props.

But, just reading scripture isn't what makes you a christain. Just thought I'd point that out.

I'm an atheist myself but I randomly give my sim families religions so I'll download this, besides though I'll likely never reconsile myself with Christianity I don't object to reading random bible quotes at leisure.

It's also nice to see some wise words and a pleasant chat about this stuff

oh also your object is very aesthetically pleasing.

You're right, but people aren't Christians because they read scriptures, it's vice versa.

Thank you very much, this is a fantastic work, I appreciate it very much!

I have to admit, I'm not a fan of religion in general, but I love the Bible as a work and think it is written beautifully. This is a stunning piece and I will enjoy using it in my game for my sims. :3

NO...reading scripture doesn't. When you get this in your game, click on the option, "What it means to be a Christian..." and see what you get. I think you will like it.
