Wycliffe Bible Translators USA Launches Third Annual #WhyBible Campaign to Inspire Discussion on the Bible’s Lasting Significance

I love what Wycliffe Bible Translators does – they make the Word of God accessible to peoples groups around the world in their native language, so the Name of Jesus becomes known around the world. That is #WhyBible is so important.

#WhyBible - It matters - eternally.

ORLANDO (SEP. 19, 2018) — Wycliffe Bible Translators, the largest Scripture-translation organization in the world, today announced its 2018 #WhyBible campaign to continue promoting online discussions of how the Bible changes lives and remains as relevant as ever, even and especially in the digital age.

New this year, #WhyBible will feature a charitable giving component. For every post that uses the  #WhyBible hashtag on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram on September 30, $5 will be donated to an ongoing Bible translation project in Indonesia. Each participant will also be entered into a raffle for a special prize pack.

“Scripture has much to say about all aspects of our lives, from work to family to community and beyond,” said Bob Creson, president and CEO of Wycliffe USA. “Yet a growing body of research shows a surprising apathy toward the Bible. Our #WhyBible campaign will create a space where believers and non-believers can discuss the truth and significance of the Word of God and why it still holds tremendous relevance to our lives.”

The Barna Research Group reported in 2017 that only 14 percent of Millennials believe the Bible is the actual, literal Word of God, and one in three Millennials view it as “just another book.” According to Barna’s reports, both Millennials and Generation Z are more hostile to the Bible than previous generations.

Each year, #WhyBible features discussions among individuals, celebrities, athletes and church and business leaders through social media about faith and the contemporary relevance of the Bible and its teachings. Wycliffe will share stories of how communities around the world have come to Christ and how they now hold Scripture as centrally important in their lives.

“Communities and people groups around the world have embraced the Bible once they read it in their native languages for the first time,” Creson said. “We want to spread their stories as examples of the miraculous effects of the Bible and the importance of the Bible for all generations, in all countries.”

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I hadn’t heard of this before, but this is of definite interest to me and fits in with the vision God has laid upon my heart. I’ll be sure to add the hashtag. Do you have some connection to Wycliffe Bible Translators yourself?

    1. So glad Wycliffe Bible Translators #WhyBible strikes a chord with you Robert. My only connection is just supporting them, however I can. I don’t write or translate, as I only speak English – and kinda Southern drawl with a Texas twang to it!
