More hotels are checking out of the Bible business

When the ultra-hip Moxy Hotel opens in San Diego next year, the rooms will be stocked with the usual amenities — an alarm clock, hair dryer, writing desk and flat-screen TV.

But you won’t find a Bible in the bedside nightstand.

Marriott International, the world’s largest hotel company, supplies a Bible and the Book of Mormon in the rooms of every other hotel in the franchise. But the company has recently decided that no religious materials should be offered at two of its newest millennial-oriented hotel brands, Moxy and Edition hotels.

“It’s because the religious books don’t fit the personality of the brands,” said Marriott spokeswoman Felicia Farrar McLemore, explaining that the Moxy and Edition hotels are geared toward fun-loving millennials. ...

It was a Gideon New Testament, not in a motel, but given to me by an Army Chaplain, that God used 11 years later to open my eyes. I wonder if the Gideons have other ways to distribute Bibles besides motels and the military, especially with atheist groups attacking any display of Christianity in the military and the fun-loving millennials disinterest in traditional Christianity. And, Jim, what about those fun-loving amillennials?

Now that is a most wonderful thing!

Would you like to share more about this, sister? As in, any particular verses which the Lord used to bring you to faith?

I'm very interested in this. It is a cause of great rejoicing.

All Christians have individual testimonies of how the Lord saved them, and every one is interesting because it is a work of the Holy Ghost - The Great Spirit made a visitation! Without such, there is no conversion, no salvation.

The quotation from Spurgeon down below is so fitting, in this fast paced world we live in amen.

Let each one of us, if we have done nothing for Christ, begin to do something now. The distribution of tracts is the first thing

Have to love Spurgeons devotion he had for sharing Christ with the household of the Redeemed & those who where still, unregenerated in the first Adam. As Spurgeon was supportive of giving out tracts, & open air preaching, as well also amen.

If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.”

Songs of Wandering Angels

We went in to the printed wood,
As fires seared by pressed leads,
And cut and paged in a distant land-
We were hooked by varied woven threads;
& when white months made deep the thing-
& months -brought lights to flickering doubt,
We dropped the markers in a seam,
& worked from eyes our slivers out.

We laid the Bible on the floor
to blow in us the fire &flames,
& something rustled in us more-
As Jesus called us with new names:
We started to His flag unfurl-
The apple of our eye! most Fair!
Who called us by His name and then-
We traded mush for heavenly fare.

The book was old but -wonderfully-
New hallowed lands & holy bands,
Let us find out what God has done,
The bliss of Grace in nail-scarred hands;
We graze as sheep in pastured pass-
& muck thru grime by grace-then Run!
Hearing silver harpists play the tune:
Of golden temples of the Son.

---

Keep on fishing in the streams
- cast your nets from side to side
when on the Book Light streams
Assurance will with you abide.

It is the will of God that human beings should get into moral relationship with Him, and His covenants are for this purpose. “Why does not God save me?”He has saved me, but I have not entered into relationship with Him."Why does not God do this and that?” He has done it, the point is —Will I step into covenant relationship? All the great blessings of God are finished and complete, but they are not mine until I enter into relationship with Him on the basis of His covenant.
Waiting for God is incarnate unbelief,it means that I have no faith in Him; I wait for Him to do something in me that I may trust in that. God will not do it, because that is not the basis of the God-and-man relationship. Man has to go out of himself in his covenant with God as God goes out of Himself in His covenant with man. It is a question of faith in God —the rarest thing;we have faith only in our feelings. I do not believe God unless He will give me something in my hand whereby I may know I have it,then I say “Now I believe.” There is no faith there. “Look unto Me, and be ye saved.”
When I have really transacted business with God on His covenant and have let go entirely, there is no sense of merit, no human ingredient in it at all, but a complete overwhelming sense of being brought into union..."

Mike, Please see the Westminster Shorter Catechism:
"Q. 29. How are we made partakers of the redemption purchased by Christ?
A. We are made partakers of the redemption purchased by Christ, by the effectual application of it to us by his Holy Spirit.
Q. 30. How doth the Spirit apply to us the redemption purchased by Christ?
A. The Spirit applieth to us the redemption purchased by Christ, by working faith in us,and thereby uniting us to Christ in our effectual calling.
Q. 31. What is effectual calling?
A. Effectual calling is the work of God’s Spirit, whereby, convincing us of our sin and misery, enlightening our minds in the knowledge of Christ, and renewing our wills, he doth persuade and enable us to embrace Jesus Christ, freely offered to us in the gospel.
Q. 32. What benefits do they that are effectually called partake of in this life?
A. They that are effectually called do in this life partake of justification, adoption, and sanctification, and the several benefits which in this life do either accompany or flow from them.
Q. 33. What is justification?
A. Justification is an act of God’s free grace,wherein he pardoneth all our sins, and accepteth us as righteous in His sight, only for the the righteousness of Christ imputed to us, and received by faith alone."

So what exactly do you say is the external call? How do you define the word "call"? What is the purpose of the external call?

As a child I was sent to church every Sunday twice.
Didn't make one jot of a difference to me.

I joined the military and was marched to church parade in first two years in training.
Didn't have any affect on me.

When I was thirty eight years of age God drew me to Christ.
When GOD does the drawing then grace is irresistible. Praise be to God.

TULIP is Biblical. Halleluiah.

"Irresistible Grace:
When God calls his elect into salvation, they cannot resist. God offers to all people the gospel message. This is called the external call. But to the elect, God extends an internal call and it cannot be resisted. This call is by the Holy Spirit who works in the hearts and minds of the elect to bring them to repentance and regeneration whereby they willingly and freely come to God. Some of the verses used in support of this teaching are Romans 9:16 where it says that "it is not of him who wills nor of him who runs, but of God who has mercy"; Philippians 2:12-13 where God is said to be the one working salvation in the individual; John 6:28-29 where faith is declared to be the work of God; Acts 13:48 where God appoints people to believe; and John 1:12-13 where being born again is not by man’s will, but by God’s." http://www.calvinistcorner.com/tulip.htm

The Gideon's print quality and binding is the best for the price. If they ever wanted to put the print block between black calf skin with gilding it would be a keeper.

If you calculate the value of airport shuttle, local shuttle service, in hotel business centers, free nights for repeat guests, free (though limited) breakfast, better located properties, and quality of sleep, I feel these are better for my needs.

But you are correct for those driving by a city and just need a bed for the night, Motel 6 is cheaper

@Mike,

Usually Marriott and its affiliates will have the book of Mormon in the rooms. However, I am not sure if Marriott places it in its hotels in the Northeast.

I like your suggestions.

@SteveR, I place the money inside the tract. I was unaware that placing money in a Bible is disrespectful. I try to handle the Bible respectfully. It is ironic that some people get upset when a flag touches the ground and at the same time these people could care less if
they place their Bible on the ground.

We do this too, except the tip is left on the desk, or in an envelope, not in the Bible. There are tracts that are written specifically for those in this type of service business. In any case the Bible is always pulled out of the drawer and left on a table or desk elsewhere in the room. Better chance of them seeing a tract. And if there is no Bible in the room, ask the folks at reception about it, and kindly complain.
ps, I've not seen a book of Mormon in a motel/hotel. Is that a west US thing?

Leaving a hand written note, with a good gospel given tract is what I like to do as well also, like to leave the money tracts in the elevators, for people will pick them up.

For the preaching of the Cross is fooliness to those who are preshing away, but to those who are being saved, it's upon the power of God. As saving truth comes from hearing the Word, & the Lord inwardly plowing & removing the harden soil amen.
The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.

Charles Spurgeon
