The Minecraft Bible

I. In the beginning, there was nothing. No sun, no moon, no land. God saw this nothing and felt sad. So with Her craft of paper dolls, She created the world you see before you; above you; beneath you. She made several worlds, each one different and unique. This made God bored.

II. After creating the world, God knew to make livestock. Chickens, cows, sheep and pigs, all in Her beautiful style of symmetry and uniform squares. They grazed the land She created with a light skip of joy in their hearts. This made God happy.

III. Seeing the happiness of the livestock, God then created Man. One man for each world She had to prevent hatrid and war. This man had the knowledge of crafting as She did, but only how to build from what She had given him. However, the man became greedy and destructive, digging and building forever. Slaughtering chickens for their feathers and cows for their skin. This made God angry.

IV. Knowing what to do, God made the night. God crafted Creepers to erupt if abused. God made Zombies of the failed men from worlds before. God made several other creatures, all to keep Man at bay in the night. However, She realized She had overdone it. Man would have to make efforts just to stay alive, or else he'd be lost forever. This made God worry.

V. God made Respawn, the man's right to learn from his mistakes and come back from the dead. She graciously allowed items to be recovered at the sight of the man's death. This made man more responsable, careful and full of experience. He grew stronger. He created tools, vehicles and sturdy homes. He learned how to live in the world God made. This made God content.


I read those words several times after making a book mysteriously out of paper and planks. The words just seemed to appear right on its pages. I sat on my makeshift bed of sheep's wool blocks and looked out the window I created from smelting sand into a glass block and placing it next to the bed. I also had a window just above the head of my bed to let me know when the sun or moon was up. I sighed a bit and looked to the book. I made it back there because of Her. I thought for sure I was a goner from those Creepers. But I have grown in this tiny world. My house was a stronger stone fort with smelting furnaces along one wall and decorations along the other. Blocks of Gold and Iron I have found and smelted overtime, bookshelves I've made, a few torches for light, etc. I decided, if this is gonna be my permanent place, it would have to look like a real one. My door was even steel with an activator to prevent any intruders from entering without my knowing. Out my window, I set up fences to be 100% sure on my security. I have to do things right, because I don't know if my respawns are an unlimited thing.

I looked at the book once again, the sight of the moon setting in my peripheral vision. There was one more passage in the Bible.

VI. God saw Man grow well on his own. She felt he knew just what he was doing. She looked to him one day and saw as he joyfully sailed across Her oceans on a boat he created. She smiled down to him and the world They made. She laid the foundation, he held the tools. This made God feel at ease.

I smiled at the final passage and jumped from my bed. I put the book back into the bookshelf and stepped on the activator to open my door. I saw the square sun just beginning to rise, the beauty of the yellows and pinks that blended into blue as the sun creeped up and up. I took the beauty in, then looked down to my minecart. Happily, I hopped into it, pulled a switch beside it and took a ride through the world tour that I created. My tracks, my minecart, my world...Our world...A world of living...A world of mining. A world of crafting.
:D YAY BIBLES!!!

No, the book you can make doesn't randomly turn into the Bible of Minecraft, though it would be epic if it did. Plus I'm on a Silent Hill high at the moment, so God's a chick. Got a problem with it, take it up with my fists. >.<

Short, final [maybe] chapter of my Minecraft fan fiction. I wanted it to be a bit like your character is now content with how things are and how he now has to live. Hope you like!

This makes more sence than the real Bible, because it's a game and anything can happend there :) in the real world there are such things as "God" or "hell and heaven" or "devil, Satan and guardian angels"

You dont literally believe he is female right? God created man in his image. A while later he created woman from the mans rib.

I'm not about to get into a religous battle with you, but I'm Wiccan, so I believe in the Goddess and Mother Nature, so naturally I just wanted to make Minecraft's Holy One a creative female. It's a story, not a religous statement.

you dont believe in God? like THE God?? The Christian God??? If you dont you will go to H E LL. Just saying. And seeing how you believe in Mother Nature you should at least believe someone made it. It didnt just spring up on its own lonesome. And im not sure what a wiccan is but if it has something to do with witchcraft then you are definitly going to H E LL
