I’ve seen many Bibles handed to people who aren’t even interested, just trying to make their way to class. After receiving one, they immediately throw it in the trash. I might have even done this in my naive/foolish/irresponsible phase. Worse, there are people who desecrate the holy Word of God that was given to them. They’ll throw it on the ground or burn it. There was this one time an official group of students on my school campus that gave away porn for Bibles, and it was successful for them. Protestants on one street corner handing out Psalms like provisions in a third world country, and this horrible group trading out porn for the Word of God.
So my question is why do protestants, who have so much respect for sacred scripture hand it out in the form of Bibles, Psalms, and New Testament to just about anyone that walks by on a college campus? Don’t get me wrong. I really do believe that you respect sacred scripture, and I don’t think you have ill intentions. I just don’t think it’s wise to do the action I’ve described. If Catholics do this anywhere, the question would apply to those Catholics as well. I’ve just only seen it with protestants.
