It is estimated that there are more than
5 billion copies of this book printed. Twenty million copies of this book are sold in the United States each year (almost 55,000 a day). That is double the number sold in 1950. I mentioned this because some think there is less interest in this book now than in years past.
In 1995, one version sold 18 million copies. This BOOK is and has remained a best seller for decades. More than 168,000 copies of this BOOK are sold or given to others in the United States each day.
A single international group distributes almost 60 million copies of this BOOK each year. That more than 100 copies per minute. This BOOK is sought all over the world. As an example, today sixty per-cent of its readers live in the developing world. In 1900, 80% lived in Europe and the United States.
Yes, we are talking about the BIBLE! Read the greatest Book ever written.
“Incline your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding.” Proverbs 2:2.

SHARON(MRS LARRY) TREADWELL,
To a small child, a lifetime on earth must seem like an eternity. The minutes and
hours pass by quickly enough but the months and years seem to go on forever.
Then one day childhood years are over and the early portion of life is past before
the mind can grasp it.
Years of labor and toil go by with a rush and a whirl and gray hairs are scattered
upon the head.
One day you find yourself contemplating that most of those you had known and
mingled your life with now rest patiently in the silent City of the Dead.
Everything changes. The pavement we walk upon crumbles; the cars we ride in
wear and rust away and natures verdant glory turns brown. The prophet said,
“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the Word of God shall stand forever”
It is disheartening to know of the nature of this fleeting life. Job said, “man that is
born of woman is of few days...”(Job 14:1). The poet said, “Brief life is our
portion here.” The day comes when other men live in our houses, work at our
jobs and sit in our pews. You and I shall be far away.
It is comforting to realize the permanent nature of spiritual things. Gods Word
endureth forever (Matthew 24:35); the Kingdom of God (church) shall last
forever (Daniel 2:44); he soul of man shall endure forever (Matthew 25:46). All
else perishes. Only God and the things of God will remain. How important it is to
make every decision of life with the betterment of eternal things foremost in mind.
With these thoughts, you begin to understand what this means:
“Change and decay in all around I see,
thou that changest not, abide with me.”
A few years ago, a Chaplain of the U. S. Senate stated: “Our current best sellers
glow with a phosphorescent rottenness. His words are just as true today. It is the
day and age of the malicious story and sordid joke. The ageless ideals of purity
and virtue have taken back seats to characteristics of a baser sort.
King David was secure on his throne but in a moment of weakness, he allowed
lustful thoughts to cross the threshold of his mind. That instant of yielding to the
flesh produced a result that heathen empires and enemy armies had failed to
The words of the Lord fall with refreshing vigor upon our minds. "Blessed are the
pure in heart; for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8).
I am brick, stone, metal, mortar and lath.
I an sanctuary, pews, hymnals, literature and religious art.
I am classrooms, furniture, Bibles, and literature.
I am boys and girls learning to think, work and play.
I am youth seeking inspiration and guidance.
I am a young couple planning to establish a Christian home.
I am the repository of a man's spiritual heritage.
I am the bearer of the hopes and gospel of Christ.
I am the custodian of your deepest hopes.
In me there is love and truth, inspiration and instruction, joy and pleasure, help
In a chaotic and troubled world I hold the answer to the greatest need.
In me above is promise for tomorrow, in my fellowship you will find peace.
What else you neglect, do not neglect me – THE CHURCH.
No one is identified as transgender or non-binary in the Bible (Matthew 19:4).
“Faith only” is mentioned just once in the Bible and it says “not by faith only”
It is against Gods will to call any man “Father” as a religious title(Matthew 23:9).
There is no God approved same-sex marriage told in the Bible (Romans 1:24-32).
