Mid-Week Challenge

 The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is back at it again.  This time around they are asking the American Hotel & Lodging Association to no longer allow The Gideons Society to distribute Bibles in their hotels and motels and instead place Charles Darwin's "On the Origin of Species" in their rooms.  In a letter to the industry, the FFRF's Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Barker claimed that "it's simply bad business to promote divisive religious teachings to a diverse clientele. Many of your guests are freethinkers — atheists, agnostics, sceptics or nones — who are offended to be charged high fees only to be proselytized in the privacy of their own bedrooms."

Funny how these folks are threatened by a book, sitting in a closed drawer.  They are so intimidated by its presence that they work to have it removed completely.  Their actions serve as a reminder to what Hebrews 4:12 tells us:

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

To the FFRF, the Bible is a dead book, but their efforts to remove it from their presence shows how powerful God’s Word really is.  Next time you stay in a hotel make sure your room contains a copy of the Bible.  If not, call the front desk and request one be delivered.  Our partners at the Gideons will consider it an honor to replace a copy in your room.  Their efforts have seen thousands come to know the Lord.
