While cell phones can often seem like a way to connect to a shallow world, that’s not the whole story. There are amazing apps that can connect us to religious values, history, and spirituality. There is enough space for cell phones to connect you to God, whether through Bible meditation apps or Christian TV shows on par with some of the best productions released in recent years.
Here are the 5 best Christian apps on the Google Play Store that offer more than just Bible reading:
1. The elected officials
It feels like we’re still on the hunt for the next great series to watch. the Christian application – The Chosen, is the first (and only) multi-season series about the life of Jesus Christ and his disciples, and you can watch it for free on their website or in the app. If you are looking for a family visit, religious or not, this is a great place to start. Its high ratings (9.8 on IMDB and 100% on Rotten Tomatoes) speak for themselves.
The main benefit of watching The Chosen on their dedicated app rather than online is access to all of the bonus content surrounding the show, including behind-the-scenes footage, trailers, related projects and more. You can still watch it on the big screen by streaming it to your TV using Roku, FireTV, ChromeCast, Apple TV, Android TV, or just a cable. It’s also available worldwide, so you can watch it wherever you are.
It’s definitely worth it to join the 8 million people who have already downloaded the app and keep your eyes peeled for every new season two episode that just came out. You can familiarize yourself with the behind-the-scenes footage as you wait between episodes.
2. Christian Mingle
As a dedicated Christian, the world of online dating can seem daunting. How do you know that your future matches will share the same religious values as you? Immerse yourself in the world of online Christian dating with the world’s largest Christian dating app, Christian mingle. The download is free and will send you matches based on a quiz you answer. The questions vary from what you are looking for in a partner to your level of faith.
