“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers” (Galatians 6:10 NIV).
According to The Christian Post, “On May 22, churches in several parts of the world are planning to hold ‘No Bible’ services where The Bible, even hymn books, over-head-projector slides, or anything else containing Scripture, will be locked away from view.”
The purpose is to illustrate the state of Christians and others across the globe, who do not have the material wealth or resources of the West.
“We hope that No Bible Sunday will help the Christians in the UK appreciate and value the feast of resources God has provided us with from his word. Many people groups only have crumbs,” said Geoff Knott, the Executive Director of WTB in a statement.
Of course it is not only Bible and hymnals that the West has in plenty. Christians in the developed world have the resources to construct huge church buildings, expansions, and other facilities. Often in poorer nations, congregants have no building to gather in, or missionaries struggle with inadequate housing.
