Eat your heart out Amazon with your planned drone book delivery:
A Swedish evangelical free church has said it plans to use drones to drop thousands of bibles into Isis-controlled areas in Iraq.
At a meeting in Uppsala, the Livets Ord (Word of Life) organization presented how drones flying at a high altitude would release thousands of small, electronic bibles into Iraq.
â€œThe bibles are the size of pill boxes and have a display. They require no electricity, but work on their own,â€ its mission director Christian Ã…kerhielm told broadcaster SVT.
â€œOur ambition is to pass on the hope and love of the Christian gospel to a population living in closed areas where they are being denied human rights,â€ Livets Ord wrote on its website.
Personally I was hoping that the Bibles would be made of steel, or would at least explode when opened.
Seriously: I’m for missionary work as much as the next person, but this stunt will only create more unwitting martyrs in the Caliphate. I can see children innocently picking up the Swedish Bibles and playing with them not knowing what they are, then being found outÂ by ISIS snoops and executed together with their families for being apostates. Kill ISIS first, then engage in religious outreach.
