Is Bible journaling disrespectful?
It Is Disrespectful and Dishonoring
Some people believe that writing in their Bible dishonors God. However, things get a bit dangerous when that belief leads to accusing other Christians of not honoring God or being deceived by Satan because they do write (or draw) in their Bible (see above).
What is a journaling Bible?

Is it OK to write in the Bible?
No, as long as you are not marking or writing in your Bible to deface or desecrate it, there is nothing wrong when you do so with good intentions. Some folks don’t write in their Bible because they feel weird about it — don’t worry; you aren’t defacing or treating the Bible as common. No way.
Is it wrong to paint a Bible?
It’s OK to write in and on. If it makes you feel any better, some of the most beautiful bibles and biblical texts were illuminated by monks and nuns who chose to paint not just on the covers but all over the pages of the bibles they were copying.
Can you put stickers on a Bible?
There’s no problem with putting something on top of a Bible or handling it with your left hand or throwing it away when it becomes unusable. Jews and Christians don’t idolize a physical book. The Word within the Bible is important but the book itself is nothing sacred.
How do I start a journaling with God?
As you write, give Him your worries, burdens and pain. Ask Him what He wants to give you in exchange, for example, love, healing, rest, comfort, and peace. Maybe start out with a prayer, ask Him questions, or write down a scripture verse that impacted you.

Is it a sin to draw?
No. Not a sin. Also work in videography. Does drawing & painting break the “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth” part of the second commandment?
Can you paint leather Bibles?
For these Bibles, I use a spray paint primer! This will keep the paint from chipping or scraping off. I use Liquitex acrylic paints for painting my Bibles. They are a nice thick consistency and easy to work with.
How do you hand paint a Bible cover?
Open your Bible to the the very middle, and then lay flat on the covered surface. Then, take two sheets of paper and place inside the fold of one cover. Repeat on the other side. This will keep paint from accidentally getting on the pages of your Bible.
