I recalled yesterday how when I was at High School here in the UK we had a visit from the Gideon Society who gave us all a copy of the New Testmanent and Psalms.
Looking back, it was from the NIV bible, is there anything wrong with reading this? It has no footnotes so youre guaranteed that protestant doctrine isnt being dished out, but what about the text though?
Obviously since then I’ve got my own Bibles but I was just wondering. I assume the Gideons are a protestant organisation? What on earth was a Catholic school doing letting them in with their scriptures? The mind boggles!
