Mohammed and the Mountain
My father was on a construction project endeavoring to position a very large piece of equipment close to where it would be most efficiently used. A significant effort was to no avail. Finally, my father told his co-worker they were just going to have to leave the equipment where it was and walk back and forth to it from their project to use it. He then said, “If the mountain won’t come to Mohammed, then Mohammed must come to the mountain.”
His co-worker was immediately offended and scolded back, “Don’t quote the Bible to me!” Now I’m guessing that my father’s co-worker may have been the only person on the planet who has EVER thought that the above line about Mohammed and the mountain came from the Bible. Maybe I’m wrong. But I’ll bet there are other lines you have heard incorrectly attributed to the Bible. I’d love to hear your stories. Your comments on this will be interesting and informative. Or maybe you have questions. Does such and such come from the Bible? We would love to hear from you too.
