2010, The Year of the Bible


The following article is based on a news story found on Yahoo News, “The Bible Bill?
.
Representative Paul Broun (R-Ga.) has proposed a bill in Congress making 2010 the Year of the Bible in recognition of the contributions that the Bible has made to America throughout its history as a nation. As of May 22, 2009, only 15 fellow House members have signed on to co-sponsor the bill. Congressmen and congresswomen do not seem to be very quick in supporting this bill. Obviously, they do not think the Holy Bible is important in American life today. Whoever does not co-sponsor this bill should be voted out of office.

In the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America from Great Britain, an appeal was made to the Judge of the Whole Earth for gaining its independence and maintaining its sovereignty. This Judge, who presides over the affairs of men judging nations, and who will judge each one of us individually, is not some mythical creature who does not exist. This Judge is a real person. The Holy Bible clearly identifies Him as the Lord Jesus Christ, who is also known as the Lord of Hosts and the Redeemer of Israel. He is the second Person of the trinity, the Only Begotten Son of God, who is God in the flesh.

With faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, America must recognize, honor, and obey Him or we will face increasing difficulty which may lead to extinction. The difficulties we are having in the nation today are symptoms of having turned away from obeying the Holy Bible and living according to its statutes.

America shall reckon with the God of the Holy Bible one way or another. He has made this solemn promise, “The nation which forgets God, will be turned into hell.” Can you see it happening? Congress is helping. What are you doing about it?

This legislation is House Concurrent Resolution 121. Being a resolution (as opposed to a “bill”), this does not carry “the weight of law” but is only an “awareness raising” type of action. I think Congress should focus more on substantive (rather than symbolic) matters, such as actually protecting our rights to use the Bible in public. Anyway, if you want to read the actual text of it, click here.
