2. The Bible can be Read Aloud
“I put you under oath before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers.”
4. Christians in Oral Societies Can Understand the Bible
“But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie–just as it has taught you, abide in him.” 1 John 2:27
After reviewing the reasons for the current orality movement, we have been convinced that presenting the Word of God orally is extremely helpful and needed. However, we do not believe that it is a replacement for the written text of the Bible. God has chosen and commanded that his Word be written down and there are many dangers to not making the written Word available to all. So, we have made it the goal of our lives to take the written Word of God and translate it so that even those currently lacking literacy could be able to one day read it in their own language.
