On a recent visit to my parents' house, I saw them looking at coupons. I asked if they got them from the Sunday paper. My dad said no. My mom said that they don't need a paper; all they need is the Bible, and that _I_ should read the Bible, and God would tell me where to go. I know she meant that "God would show me the path I should follow" but English is her second language. I was SO delighted by her choice of words that I didn't even get irritated. < laughing > "God would tell [me] where to go". I immediately (and delightedly) thought "yup, God would tell me to 'Go to hell!'" I just said nothing and successfully refrained from even chuckling.
