Four years after he began his project to write out every word of the Bible, Phillip Patterson penned the very last lines Saturday at an upstate New York church.
"Every single curly-q, every single loop, it was all worth it," said Patterson, 63, moments after inking the final two verses of the King James Bible. "I'm really going to miss this writing."
It took Patterson just a few minutes to copy the final lines of the Book of Revelation before a crowd of about 125 people at St. Peter's Presbyterian Church in Spencertown. He ended the ceremony by saying "Amen."...
Don't underestimate the power of the seed. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. He was certainly copying the right book and I for one am glad that Jim L is not the judge.
2 Corinthians 2 14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in His triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. 15 For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; 16 to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things?---NASB
Just because a person is shown the way of salvation such as the The Roman Road. He copied "the Acts Road," word for word, See Acts 13:15-42 at Book of Acts, Chap. 13. In which the Gospel is clearly presented. With all the other verses throughout the New Testament on what it takes to be saved and to be right with God, this fellow knows what it takes, one can just hope that he won't keep rejecting the Gospel -- but many people have.
I didn't know that SA had to put up exciting News (See Newser) I assume they put up material which will engender discussion, on what many times has a religious content and sometimes a political content supporting hunter/gatherer culture.

We had a treasure of a member who had memorized all the Bible. Now writing something out is a good way to remember something, I did quite good in a college (Yes, one of those public institutions!) course when someone stole my textbook for it, and I committed large portions that textbook to writing since there was a copy of it in the university library.
It would be better if this AIDS infested individual had committed the text to memory, but best of all like the member of my church who has gone to a great reward committed it to heart.
This individual will never understand the Scriptures until he becomes a Christian. He could have spent his time better than scribbling the Scriptures The True, Lost Condition of Man.
A homosexual African American man, dying of AIDS, invests seven years lovingly copying the entire 1611 KJV text in perfect penmanship onto 2,400 pages, is binding it in leather and donating to his "progressive, inclusive country" Presbyterian church:
‚ÄúWe need to know what life was like for those people to make those laws and make demands.‚ÄĚ
"Patterson said he was struck by the amount of violence described in the Bible. He also found the Book of Leviticus interesting for the passage in which the eating of shellfish is prohibited by the lord. ‚ÄúSomething must have gone bad when somebody ate shrimp in Leviticus,‚ÄĚ Patterson remarked.
‚ÄúHomosexuality must have really been a problem if they had to make a law about it,‚ÄĚ he added.
"Despite his appearance of boundless friendly energy, Patterson describes his health as ‚Äúterrible.‚ÄĚ He suffers from the effects of AIDS. He had trouble getting up the stairs on two canes to speak at the event."
