    A millennial’s pov on how people view millennials 

    I’m 34 years old. That means I’m at the very, very back-end of the millennial age group…or maybe it’s the front of the line?

    Is indecision a thing about millennials that bothers people?

    Either way, by most people who enjoy categorizing others into demographic pie charts, I’m included in the oft-bemoaned group of today’s up and coming leaders, families, soldiers, work force, business owners, and etc. And to be honest, I get a little tired of everyone incessantly bashing my age group.

    Why’s that? I’d be more than happy to explain with an illustration. (More …)

    Now there’s a book, chapter and verse for ;) :( and :p 

    The Bible’s newest translation is in emojis and emoticons according to this story. In the story you’ll read that, “The authors of the new translation say that about 10 to 15 percent of the translation is in emoticon speak while the remainder is in boring, old alphabet characters.”

    The amazing thing to me is that the goal of the “translation” (which is based on the KJV for obvious copyright purposes) is supposed to be a serious one. It’s supposed to be Scripture for Millennials; the creators also said, “that they created the translation program to draw new readers to the word of God”.

    I don’t know if the app is one that must be paid for…I haven’t checked it out myself, but if you have an Apple device, the app is available in Apple’s App Store so you can check it out if you choose.

    So what do you think? Is this “translation” a good move? Or do you think it’s better left for the digital recycling bin as you LOL at it?

      My opinion is no, it’s not a good move. The more we get away from the true meaning of the bible, the less others will understand what they are truly missing out on. I pray for our nation to seek out the truth from the living word of God.

      Eugene, this “emoji” thing is yet another attempt by the Devil to: (1) make the Bible look like cartoons; (2) lose most of the God-inspired wording; (3) appeal to minds already dumbed down by pictures, not words; (4) put somebodies between what God actually said and someone who hungers and thirsts for righteousness! “Translation,” as you know, is as accurate from one language to another as is humanly possible, adding only those words in the new language to complete the sentences as originally given by God! It is a daunting task, to make both the text and the translation as precise as can be. If God had wanted Scripture to be “emoticons,” He could have used hyrogliphics, or other characterizations. Words convey ideas, and sentences lock in the use and definitions of the words. Paul wrote “how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophet” (Ephesians 3:3-5 NKJV). Words speak, “emoticons” don’t! “Preach the word.”

        Hard to argue against what you’re saying. I (like the previous commenter said in so many words) think it waters down the word in a way that’s completely unnecessary. Thanks for commenting brother.
