If English speakers don't read their Bible, why bother translating the Bible into Titan?
As English speakers, we have been blessed with the opportunity to read God's own words to us in the language we use every day and know best. What we sometimes call our heart language.
We can get to know God through His words to us and have a relationship with Him. We can know God, and Jesus, the Messiah that He has sent, and have eternal life.
That's because the Word of God exists in our language.
Yes, there are lots of people, including many Christians, who don't read the Bible. But they can! The opportunity exists for them if they choose to take advantage of it. We are swimming in a sea of English translations, Bible helps, apps, audio and video recordings, etc. We have been truly blessed to the point of overflowing and praise God for that!
The Titan people of Manus Island have NONE of that in their language!
Yes, there will be those among the Titan people that won't read or listen to it once it exists. But there are those that will, and don't they deserve the chance to read and hear God's words in Titan so they can understand it? To know the truth and be set free by it? Doesn't everyone?
We believe that the Titans deserve a chance to read God's Word in their own language. Do you?
