Faith Comes By Hearing eagerly announces the availability of the dramatized New International Version® for listening or reading on Bible.is!
Now, you longtime subscribers may think to yourselves, “I seem to recall that the NIV® used to be available on Bible.is,” and you’d be right—the New International Version®, Biblica, and Faith Comes By Hearing have a rich history!
Let’s face it, it’s not easy to be a believer. In fact, Jesus told us it wouldn’t be easy. Putting all of our trust and hope in God can be tough, especially when it seems like everything is going wrong. So, when you find yourself in the midst of a trial, take a look at God’s Word.
. . . or “250 million is a lot of people – until you consider . . . .”
Like all organizations, we enjoy celebrating milestones. You know, those achievement points that remind us how far we’ve come since (insert arbitrary date here). So when our digital Bible outreach recently passed the 250 million mark we were understandably elated that so many people had engaged with God’s Word through our digital networks over the last five years.
How can we get the Bible to every human on Earth without a dependency on the public Internet?
Today in underdeveloped countries, people have smart phones and technology devices but, because connectivity is sparse and expensive, the ability to deliver Bible content in audio and text formats is extremely difficult. But, that’s all about to change . . .
In this era of social media, we’re connected like never before. Old acquaintances from every level of school and from each former job or church send a near-constant barrage of electronic invites to re-friend them online. The concept of seasonal friendships has all but died out – now we’re (absurdly) expected to maintain some type of relationship with almost everyone we’ve ever met. But how “connected” are we really?
Space is no more than 80 miles away from every person on Earth. As political scientist Daniel Deudney once observed, that’s closer than most people are to their own national capitals!
Space technology greatly improves many aspects of our lives and we are starting to rely on it more and more each day. Approximately 1,000 active satellites currently provide a whole host of services that improve our world in many ways – from the navigational tools in our cars to the daily weather forecast.
Space technology also helps address some of the major challenges the world is facing, including human rights abuses, depletion of natural resources, and other issues like universalizing access to healthcare and education. Space might also be the last step to reaching every human on Earth with the Gospel.
