Would I go to hell for taking a Bible apart and using parts of the text and binding for an art project?
(Note: I'm not asking so much the metaphysical if you are a practicing Jew or Christian do you believe in hell sort of question, but the more is it forbidden by the faith in an intense way sort of question.)
The purpose of the project(s) is beauty, not sacrilege. And would it make a difference if it were already damaged and I'm repurposing it? I'm just not sure if there's a specific "respect the physical book some guy gave me on the streetcorner" taboo out there.
