Big Change To The Bible Page
Yesterday I posted the following note on The Bible page on Facebook and thought I would share it with you given how important you are and how important this amazing Bible page is for me! Here tis:
Greetings, when I founded the Bible page my vision was to share God’s Word via people’s walls across Facebook. This still remains, but what has happened is that God has grown that vision! As the page grew and more and more people became fans, I started to see people praying for each other, supporting each other, and participating in amazing discussions (more than 2,600 discussions going at the moment). People are regularly hearing the Gospel, and yes, the Word of God is shared.
The Bible page grew rapidly and became one of the fastest growing pages on Facebook. Presently, it is the largest page on Facebook in the Religious Organisation category. With this diverse group, it has attracted a massive amount of unwanted attention. Every day the wall is full of troll attacks – inappropriate comments that require removing and managing.
I quickly assembled a small, but amazing team of volunteers who help me manage the page, but this has become too big a task, even for them. Now, the time has come to pause, take stock of what is happening, and work out a plan to move forward.
The plan is to close The Bible page wall down for the month of March. We will continue to post scripture daily, but there will be no access to the wall for individual postings. We know this will disappoint many of you and we understand. We value and appreciate all the posts and comments many of you have brought to this wall. You have made it a truly unique and interesting site to be on.
Over the course of this month, our goal is to design a workable plan to manage the page in a way that honors the vision we have of sharing the Bible and all the other amazing activities that happen on this page.
We fully appreciate all the contributions to the wall, and value each and every one of you. We understand this might upset many of you, and we want you to know we do not take this step lightly and without careful consideration. When we reopen the wall, we plan to have measures in place to manage it in such a way that it honors God above all else.
