Regarding Gideons and Bible hand-outs
Is the Bible what citizens are scared of, or is it the people handing out Bibles? The Bible hasn’t harmed anyone. Some people handing out Bibles do not adhere to the teachings of the Christ Jesus (which is what the New Testament is about) and perhaps some parents do not want their children to accept that behavior.Examples include that the Bible teaches do not kill/murder, yet many who hand out Bible support and rationalize war and capitol punishment of the guilty and innocent. Jesus was against those acts opposite of loving one another. When someone does wrong, we are not to kill them along with innocent people around them and rationalize it. That is taught on the Bible’s third page, in the Ten Commandments and through out the New Testament.Another example is where many people handing out Bibles support prohibition laws enabling government to cage humans for using cannabis (marijuana) when, in fact, God indicated He created all the seed bearing plants and said they are all good, on literally the very first page of the Bible. There are many reasons why Americans oppose Bible handouts; this is one that doesn’t get mentioned; pure inbreeded hypocrisy is to blame and many citizens and parents do not want to teach hypocrisy to their kids.I love the Bible and the teachings of Christ God Our Father and want My children to receive the Spirit of Truth, but hypocritical believers handing out Bibles is an unsuccessful way to teach it. Perhaps we should teach our children about the Bible and to ask questions of those who hand out Bibles and not accept Bibles from hypocrites. Most of all, don’t let hypocrites turn You away from the Bible.Censoring and removing the platform of Biblical hypocrites is the correct way to make the world a safer place for Our children.So obey, love one another and receive the “Spirit of Truth.” Disobey, do not love one another and You don’t even know You don’t receive, yet think You do. It’s a Biblical catch-22.
