What other apps would he have?
christiantoday.com has reported on The Jesus Film now having its own app:
There are apps for all kinds of things, from fun and games to travelling. But the Jesus Film Project has developed an app to help people share the Gospel.
Jesus Film Media is a free app providing Android and iOS phone users with access to the complete library of the Jesus Film Project.
The library has some 66,000 video clips in over 1,100 languages, including the entire two-hour Jesus Film and its 61 teaching segments.
I’ve checked this out on iPhone; and while I dont see myself using it much, it maybe a helpful youth group resource for showing video clips featuring Jesus and moments from the Gospel.
Download iPhone App.
Would you use something like this? How would you use it?
What is The American Bible Challenge Game?
According to iTunes:
Based on our new game show, GSN presents the official American Bible Challenge Game!
Test your Bible knowledge, earn as many points as you can, and compete with your friends and fellow group members to achieve the highest score. Show host Jeff Foxworthy will encourage you throughout the game as you unlock new rounds and levels.
This game features four different question types that span the entirety of the Good Book. Answer correctly and you’ll be racking up points for yourself and your group, and moving up the Leaderboard. Answer incorrectly, and you’ll get new chapters in your Bible Study that will help you get those questions right the next time.
Ready to play? Download the free app now, and don’t forget to tune in to The American Bible Challenge on GSN- The Game Show Network.
Every now and then, there is a blog post that stirs the soul and body into action. Not just to comment on the post, not just to discuss on Twitter, but to also write a reply post yourself. I hear you mutter… “What could this outrageous post be?”
Well it came from the pen of @garethjenkins82, in his post “Why God would own a BlackBerry“.
I feel that couldn’t be allowed to pass without stepping in to defend the humble iPhone, so in true Sofa style we’d like to present:
Reasons Why God Would Own an iPhone
Obviously none of this should be taken 100% seriously… maybe 95%….
*Sorry for the geekery
I have to admit, I did try to think of a more amusing title… I’m presuming that due to the mild case of creative fail that seems to be happening at the moment, the above was the best I could come up with…
Do you read the Bible on your phone? I have to the admit, the YouVersion Bible app for the iPhone does make Sunday mornings a lot easier by not having to balance a Bible on my lap throughout the service. It also kinda amuses my housegroup by reading from my phone instead of a traditional Bible. According to The Underground, I’m not the only one who finds smartphones the way forward in Bible reading.
On the subject of smartphones and stuff, the Alpha Course have released an iPhone app… It may interest if you happen to be an Alpha fan…
Are you a Simpsons fan? Do you remember that episode where Maude Flanders dies? Remember when Bart tries to cheers Rod and Todd by playing a “Christian” computer game with them? You may want go to the Simpsons Character Page, select F-H, click on “Flanders, Rod”, and from there you can play “Billy Graham’s Bible Blaster”.
Here’s this weeks weekly round up…
To start with, some serious C of E news, it seems there have been some factions opening up and things like that. If you feel like you can concentrate then the Church Mouse explains it all. (Not to be confused with Clarissa…)
Have you heard about the Steelroots saga? If not check out our post here. While the eChurch goes a little deeper, giving a little bit more detail about the tale of the American Bully Boys. If you want a lesson on irony check out the American Steelroots Twitter page.
On a lighter note. According to the BBC, contrary to popular reports, Homer and Bart Simpson are not Catholic.
On a final note if your interested in “iPhone Photography” you may want to check out the Project 365 blog from “ThatAndy”.
