Christianity isn’t often famed with being in touch with modern culture, so naturally they want to try and connect with the ‘youth of today’ – no matter how awkward it may be.

Reportedly it took six months to produce – and that is some effort, but the whole thing is a bit like your parents asking to do a Harlem Shake video.

Is there any harm? No. Is it how you’d want to spend an evening? Definitely not.

But if you are interested, the Bible Emoji will be made available on Sunday via iBooks.
