PBS Distributes Bibles to Philippine Justices

Amid the many critisicms towards the government and our justice system, we believe that true and lasting change can only come from both our individual committment and united effort to contribute in making our society a righteous and just community. With our vision, we believe that this transformation can only come into reality if  we adhere to a moral standard that is not our own but God-given. That is why in celebration of the National Bible Week 2011 last January and through the partnership of the Lighthouse Bible Baptist Church, PBS distributed God’s Word in the Office of the Ombudsman and the Supreme Court. Amongst those that received a copy of the Scriptures were Ombudsman Merciditas Guttierez and Chief Justice Renato Corona. During the week, PBS distributed around 30 Bibles in the two offices. An opportunity also arose to distribute Bibles in the Court of Appeals last March 1, 2011 and around 60 Bibles were received by the staff and justices in the government office. In all three sectors, the Bibles were well received and appreciated.With the gifts is our prayer that that God will give our leaders much wisdom as they dispense justice guided by the statutes of the Scriptures, knowing that “…the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.” (Psalm 19:9)

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

It's an honor and a privilege for me to support the Philippine Bible Society - to reach out to the unreachable people by giving Bibles not only in the Philippines but the whole world.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
