They're Making An Emoji Bible, But It Won't Help

Everywhere I look these days I see something else about “millennials.” Whether we suck, whether we are the future, or whatever else about our generation, it’s out there. I definitely think our generation sucks at times, but we also get a bad rap. One common trend with millennials is changing things in order to cater to the generation. Well, it seems the next big thing is translating the Bible into emojis.

We don’t need to dive into why, but millennials are leaving Christianity and exploring other things. Some just get inspired by their bleeding heart professor to “find themselves,” and some may just get pushed away by other Christians (trust me, I’m the expert thanks to my super-conservative Southern Baptist father).

This could potentially be beneficial for a few reasons. One is the cost, $2.99, which is cheaper than a normal Bible at the bookstore. However, you can find a free Bible just about anywhere or download one on your phone, so maybe not.

Now if you actually look at the translation, you’ll realize this is worse than reading the King James Version. If I wanted to read sentences broken up by a million emojis, I would follow a bunch of middle schoolers on Instagram. Seriously, it looks like a collection of tweets from Matty B.

No thank you. I want none of that. Religion is a hot topic, and everyone’s got different views. Millenials are a generation unlike the world has ever seen, full of creative minds and explorative spirits. Everyone do your thing. But as a Christian I’ll just throw it out there – this emoji Bible thing won’t help. But good luck with it.
