Visit Sansone's Gifts for Families

URRGGGH!

Sunday, December 18, 2005

On Dec. 7, I posted about a great online Bible resource that I had discovered called Biblecentre.org. The site had a lot of neat resources that I had not seen online before and I was looking forward to using the site.

Unfortunately, there is a new message at the site, which reads:

Will are looking to Reopen in January 2006

To be able to continue with our services, we are looking to charge a monthly fee of $2.


To make matters worse, as you read further down the page, you find this comment:

It is true that we do carry some works that are still in "copyright". BUT, we simply do not agree that these laws are pleasing to the Lord, as they clearly hinder His work.


While I may wish that Christian authors would willingly surrender their "copyright" rights in some cases so as to make the material available for those who could use the material, I do not agree with this site's decision to ignore and openly violate the law.

Sorry, Andy and others who had viewed the site and had as much hope for it as I did.

BTW, Andy, if you have not yet gotten E-Sword or PowerBible, one or both of these should prove helpful.

Just my thoughts,

Frank

Romans 3:7-9
...And why not do evil that good may come?--as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.


I understand their frustrations - I've felt it too! But breaking the law in order to "obey God" invites His Wrath. Oh well. Sorry to hear about that, brother.

I do, however, second E-Sword. It is probably the best Bible program that I've ever seen, and it's only second because the first is so expensive [It's quite inexpensive - only 300.00 a pop.]
