It came to my attention a while back that the most shoplifted book in the world is the Bible. Whether this is true or an urban myth, just think of the irony of a Bible being stolen.
It is ironic because there are many Bible passages that tell us not to steal, for example, Exodus 20:15; Leviticus 19:11, 13; Deuteronomy 5:19; Ephesians 4:28. Imagine someone stealing something that plainly states, “don’t steal.” Too, we are told in this same book that someone who is guilty of stealing will be lost in hell (1 Corinthians 6:10).
