Bible-reading marathon unleashes in nation’s capital, and this year includes Congress

Those interested in participating in the U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon can call 202-737-1776; Faith & Liberty will also be posting videos from the marathon on its Facebook page.

JTN: A days-long Bible reading marathon began this weekend and includes a congressional Bible reading for the first time in the decades-long annual event.

The 34th annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon is open to public participation. It takes place on the West Terrace of the U.S. Capitol and goes through 10 a.m. Wednesday.

This year, for the first time, a Congressional Bible reading will occur in the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday. Members of Congress will participate in the marathon by reading the Bible in the House of Representatives’ Chaplain’s office.

The marathon involves hundreds of people scheduled to read the Bible out loud in many languages. They will read the Bible in its entirety from Genesis to Revelation for 90 continuous hours on Capitol Hill. Both the House and Senate leadership approved the marathon, event organizers said.

The nonprofit evangelistic group organizing the event, Orlando-based Faith & Liberty, regularly engages with elected officials, distributes copies of the Bible and other materials, and hosts several kinds of events including hosting Bible studies.

Faith & Liberty vice president Peggy Nienaber said the event “celebrates the power of God’s Word, and the right of all Americans to exercise their freedom to religiously express themselves. Every year, it is such a privilege to participate in the reading of God’s Word as it flows throughout Capitol Hill, especially during this time as the nation grapples with uncertainty and unrest. The Bible is the foundation of America, and within those pages, we find the only answer for hope for this nation.” more here

  1. The media will focus on the Alphabet Mafia and baby killing protesters and call the Bible readers extremists. The FBI will take the names of everyone involved in the reading.

    It doesn’t matter though. God is still more powerful than them all and reading His Word out loud will bring blessings.

  2. The official National Day of Prayer takes place next week on Thursday May, 4th outside the US Capitol bldg. It has always been held on the first Thursday in May. I participated in the 1992 Natl. Day of Prayer with a large group of people from my church and was able to read little bit of scripture outside the Capitol bldg. That years Natl. Day of Prayer also coincided with the Rodney King riots in LA which made it even more tense because of those riots. A white friend of mine originally from Texas almost walked into a bunch of blacks protesting those riots down by the Jefferson Memorial and almost felt that he would have to fight his way out of it, fortunately nothing happened but it could’ve turned really ugly in a heartbeat.

  3. They can start here and read it aloud to the country:

    Leviticus 18:22 ~ You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

    Leviticus 20:13 ~ If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

    Jude 1:7 ~ Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

    Romans 1:26-28 ~ For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

    Mark 10:6-9 ~ But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

  4. The most venal sin of the New Covenant is HYPOCRISY.

    Judge them by what they DO.
    And what they’ve always done.

    Remember Bubba and his contractually obligated wife/law partner parading out of church with Holy Bibles tucked in their armpits. Halleluiah!
