Two reactions to the Bible

I read two interesting news stories today on about two very different reactions to the Bible.
In North Korea, a Christian woman was executed for distributing the Bible.
In Glasgow, Scotland, an "art" display encouraged visitors to deface the Bible to show their contempt for its message.
Two different kinds of hostility were expressed toward God's Word: fear from the North Koreans, hatred from the Scottish "artists." The communists showed more respect for the Bible than the postmodernists.
But both of them illustrate that the Scripture cuts down to the nitty gritty of who we are, and is a scandal and offense to many.
