Digital Gospel Debuts in Tropics

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come”.
Matthew 24:14 (New International Version)

Teams with the organization Faith Comes by Hearing began working in the village of Makita [Brazil], which sits along the banks of an Amazon River tributary. The ministry provides tribes people with a device known as a “Proclaimer,” a self-powered, digital machine that has an audio New Testament preloaded on an embedded microchip.

Morgan Jackson, a spokesman for the organization, says the digital audio Bibles are having a big impact. “We’ve been in communities where … it transforms the entire community because they’ve never [before] heard the Word of God,” he notes.

But he says there are 235 spoken languages in Brazil, and the need for oral versions of the Bible is great. Faith Comes by Hearing is now sending teams out into the remote regions of the country to help record the needed translations. The first indigenous Brazilian New Testament recording is slated to start in early July.

    DO NOT do this. they have their own religiouns, and these are essential if their dying cultures and traditions are to survive.

    You are only saving them in your own eyes. For the atheist, you are almost literally killing them.
    At least aproach them with an idea, not preacing to them that you are right and they are wrong. If you do that, atheists are RIGHT to make sex toys out of religious idols, just to show you what you are doing to these indigenous people.

    Each person is able to choose their own destiny. But if they don’t know what the choices are, how can they know which way to choose?
    I believe they should be exposed to the Christian message. They if they choose it or reject, that is their choice.

    That is true,
    But the problem here is that they are only being exposed to two sides. One side is their own, and the other is christianity telling them that their side is evil.

    Some people argue that they should not be disturbed in order to preserve their culture, but if they are going to be exposed to other messages they should be exposed to all other messages, including other religions and atheism.

    HackThis,
    Believe it or not, I don’t have a problem with people being exposed to other religions. I believe that Christianity will stand on it’s own merits.
    It all comes down to personal choice. Right or wrong, people must make up their own minds.
    I pray that they choose God and Jesus Christ.
