Is the Bible very popular? It is, and its popularity is well proven by the Internet.
A very interesting web site is http://www.findlawyer-1.com/BIBLE.htm. At the top of this page is this simple message: “Domains with the word BIBLE in them.” Then comes this short but powerful statement: “Next 5,000” (readers can go to another page that lists more domain names containing the word “Bible.”
Men have criticized the Bible and tried to destroy it. In spite of great opposition, the Bible lives on, even to the point where thousands of people have created web domains with BIBLE somewhere in the name. Not only are there literally thousands of web sites that have “Bible” as part of their address, millions of other web pages contain information about the Bible.
No other book is like the Bible. It is literally “God’s power to salvation” (Rom. 1:16).
If you do not own a copy, please get one. If you have a copy but rarely read it, please make that a priority in 2008. If you have a copy, know what it says but are not abiding by it, there is no better time to start than now. If you know the book, are following it, try to communicate the value of its contents to others.
May 2008 be a time when all draw closer to the word of God.

Remember, in order to be saved and enjoy all God’s blessings (not the least of which is salvation), a person must have faith (Jn. 8:24), be willing to repent (Lk. 13:3), and after confessing Christ as Lord, the final step is water baptism (Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 12:13; 1 Pet. 3:20-21). Proper baptism in water puts a person “into Christ” (Gal. 3:27; Rom. 6:3) and results in the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38).
