Working in over 200 countries, Bible Society is a charity on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. We believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good.
We’re translating and distributing Bibles around the world so people can experience the Bible in their heart language, especially in China, Middle East and Southern Africa.
Against a backdrop of widespread Bible indifference, we’re working across society to help adults and children recognise the value of the Bible.
You know the commandment which says, “Be faithful in marriage.” But I tell you that if you look at another woman and want her, you are already unfaithful in your thoughts. If your right eye causes you to sin, poke it out and throw it away. It is better to lose one part of your body, than for your whole body to end up in hell. If your right hand causes you to sin, chop it off and throw it away! It is better to lose one part of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. (Matthew 5.27-30)
