400 Gideon Bibles, “Treats” that Could Change Lives

October 31st, 2021 by

Bibles and Butterfingers
A Western Pines man has been against supporting the traditional October 31 holiday, because of its believed pagan origin.

When he was invited to become a member of the Monticello Chapter of Gideons International, 4 years ago, God gave him the answer to “trick-or-treating.“

Saturday was the 4th year that he and his family handed out Gideon Bibles, along with a candy bar, to children and adults of all ages.

For 3 years, least 300 Bibles were distributed from his home on Meadowview Drive. Last night, the total was 400 scriptures placed in the hands of mostly children (and a few parents).

Each year, several small children exclaimed, “Mom, I got a Bible!“  However there is always the occasional, “Mom, what’s a Bible?“ which really makes his choice of treats show its importance.

Gideons International is a group  of Christian business and professional men who provide Bibles to hotels, hospitals, school students (when allowed), as well as in personal contact.

    Thank you for your work with Gideon International. This has been a group that we support. I am so proud to see you and your family giving out Bibles at halloween. I pray that souls will be saved because of these Bibles.

    This man and the Gideons are to be commended for their service to the Lord!!
