A Book Worth Dying For

As Christian, we believe the Bible is the Word of God. It was inspired by Him (2 Tim. 3:16) and will help us in all areas of life. However, not everyone looks at the Bible in that way.

Muslims (among other religious groups) have a great disdain for the Bible. Why? There are many different reasons, a couple of which are, it shows Jesus to be God and they believe it is corrupted by Christians. Many times we read about Christian having to choose whether or not they will stand with the Bible or reject it. Sometimes followers of Islam will try to force Christians to spit on the Bible or in someway reject and desecrate it.

However, the true believers always stand with the Word of God, even if it means that their life will be taken from them. Through out the centuries, Christians have had to make this choice. Time and time again, they have picked honoring God by standing with His Word, over apparent "life".

Is the Word of God something that you're willing to die for? If you had to pick the Bible over life, would you do it? Get a hold of Foxe: Voices of the Martyrs or subscribe to VOM's newsletters and read about people who are dying for the Lord and His Word.
