I certainly congradulate the Gideons on their 100th anniversary! I have really taken to heart the Word of God the last fifteen years or so. It really saddens me to hear people make a mockery of the Bible despite all the archaeological and scientific evidence of its truth and accuracy. Lawsuits by the ACLU and other such orginizations are only going to increase people's apathy which almost brings me to tears. Another thing that has (In my opinion) increased people's indifference to Scripture is Born-Again Christians relentlessly standing on street corners shoving their Bibles down other people's throats (I am Armenian Orthodox) basically trying to force people to believe as they do, which only seems to create animosity rather than converts. These "Christians" blatantly fail to realize that in Matt. 7:12 Jesus Christ specifically states "Whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets." (ESV) I don't think they would like other other people dictating what they are to believe. Their use of various Bible verses as scare tactics to get people to accept their characture of Christ is, in my Orthodox opinion, absolute heresy. If their methods seemed to work I would be joining them.
Congradulations once again to the Gideons! I certainly hope their work can continue for anothe 100 years.
