why do people of certain denominations carry bibles with them to funerals and church?

zorro1701e asked the question:

When at work i notice people of certain catholic based denominations carry bibles with them. I have also seen this at certain churches. They never use them during the ceremonies, they just carry them around. I’m just curious why. Does someone keep tabs on you?
xandrewx, im not sure if you read my details, but these people were at funerals…at a mortuary. they weren’t there to take classes. After i posted the question, i spent a few days asking around. A lot of the people i asked said that they didnt want to be seen NOT carrying a bible, because everyone else did. Seems weird.

    I carry mine too. but I am not Catholic. In fact I have never seen a Catholic carry a Bible. Most Catholics I know don’t even own a Bible.

    I keep a Bible in my vehicle and a small one in my purse. I take one to church and I use it in Bible class. I also follow along when the Pastor reads the Word.

    We reference and at time called to read the scriptures in church or messianic congregations,This allows for us o be part of the sevice.
    Also some miss or cannot hear all the sermon the bible verses help to reread what was preached. As part of God the word of God is no regular book. We keep it with as God is Holy and can open it for some encouragement and or direction as to what the the Holy Ghost inclines to have us read and or hear at a given time. Often fresh words and annointed messages come for those that have” hidden the word in their hearts so that they sin not”. Others have prayer book missals for written prayers.

    I would hope they had them to make sure what was said was really in the Bible.
    You can’t believe everything you hear. Check it out for yourself.

    Last time I went to church I carried a dictionary with me. Nobody even noticed.
