An atheist group is committed to remove Bibles from all hotel rooms in the United States. Calling the Bible “obnoxious”, the group claims that the mere presence of the Bible in any hotel is “inappropriate and unconstitutional.” The organization is now distributing labels and attempting to place them on the cover of Bibles found in hotel rooms.
“Warning: Literal Belief in this Book May Endanger Your Health and Life”
Of all the obnoxious statements this organization has made, I would aver this last statement is closer to the truth than they realize.
Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?”
Matthew 16:24-26 (ESV)
If our life is grounded in this world and existence, then we are in danger...of losing our very soul. God has given us His Bible to instruct us in how to live our lives. Our existence is much more than this life. We are eternal souls, created with an innate longing to be in fellowship with God, our Creator. But our sins have separated us from God. What is the solution? We need to confess our sins, repent and turn toward Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Why should we trust Jesus? Because God has revealed His complete truth and plan for our salvation within the Bible. If you read it, God, may indeed, draw you closer to Him and bring you back into the fellowship He created you to experience.
Would you endanger your life by reading the Bible? If you do, you just may lose it to save it.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life
