Bring Your Bible to School Day is celebrated on the first Thursday of October in the United States, and is a major holiday for all students who want to take part in the movement. It is celebrated to promote religious freedom and expression and celebrate the importance of faith in daily life. On this date, various events are held that all Christians can take part in.
Bring Your Bible to School Day was founded in 2014 by Focus on the Family, an American church organization. This was due to the US Supreme Court’s ban in 1962-1963 on reading the Bible in schools. In the first year, 8000 students took part in the event, and in subsequent years their number increased to 40,000. Now, students are allowed to bring a Bible to an educational institution, so long as it is read during lunch or free time, and not during the lesson. During the day, peers get together and discuss upcoming events, discuss, and disseminate information.
- The Bible is the most published book in the world, with 32 books published every day.
- The texts of the Old Testament are filled with prophecies that come true from year to year.
- Law enforcers have reported that the Bible is stolen more often than other publications.
- It is the most haunted book. There is no longer such a work in the world, about the prohibition of which laws would be created, and in ancient times they could simply be executed.
- The Bible saves not only spiritually, but also physically. There are cases when the book stopped bullets, saving the lives of its bearers.
