The American Bible Society Affirms Biblical Marriage, Employees Resign in Protest

(Worthy News) - The American Bible Society, one of the world's oldest Bible distributing organizations, is defending its decision to ask employees to sign a statement of faith affirming traditional marriage.

The new policy (LINK) asks employees to conduct themselves according to biblical principles, including refraining from extra-marital sex and honoring God through marriage between one man and one woman.

"I will seek to refrain from sexual activity outside of the marriage covenant prescribed and exemplified in the Bible: 'a man will leave his father and mother and unite with his wife, and the two will become one,' symbolizing the relationship between Christ and His Church," the statement reads.

  1. I am so proud of The American Bible Society! Thank you for taking a biblical stand on this issue. I have translated the entire Bible from the original Hebrew and Greek texts, and I can assure you: If you are on staff at a ministry that distributes the Bible, you should have known that the Bible has dozens of verses referring to Sodomites, fornicators, and adulterers as abominations that anger God, and will result in His judgment. Apparently the employees who left did not carefully search the scriptures.

  2. New American Standard Bible

    Matthew 7:13

    "Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.

  3. Only the Incredible grace and mercy of Christians and a Christian organisation would give people who disagree fundamentally with their them and their mission six months to find another job.
