To Emoji or Not to Emoji . . . Why is This a Question?

I admit it. I'm kind of a fan of emojis. What's not to love? When you don't want to or aren't able to text a message, a smiley face works nicely. Or if you haven't had nearly enough coffee and a snappy comeback is needed, my personal favorite is the pile of poo. Emojis revolutionized the texting world, but would you want to read an entire novel with tiny graphics sprinkled throughout?

Or the Bible?

Stop rolling your eyes, Bucko, because I'm not just being ridiculous. You can now seriously purchase your very own copy of the Bible Emoji Scripture 4 Millenials. In their own words:

Explore all 66 books chronicling the stories of Abraham, Noah and Jesus like never before!

Here's an example of a verse:
🙌 b 2 😇
Did you get that?  It's praise be to God.

There's even a Bible translator where you can type in your favorite verse and it will print out the emoji version.

Kind of makes one wonder what next, eh?

I like the word games where you use pictures for words to guess what it says, but somehow when seeing it for scripture, that kind of sets my teeth on edge.

That is so wrong. Emojis have different meanings, so this can be quite the disaster. I have no problem with putting the Bible in words that the masses can understand, but this is taking it too far.
