NASHVILLE, TN—LifeWay Research released a new report Monday morning confirming that Christians who regularly share photos on social media which include both a Bible and a cup of coffee are significantly godlier than those who do not.
The data was gathered from a study of 8,000 Christians from a variety of denominations and backgrounds. It reports “much higher” levels of godliness and holiness among those who share at least one Bible/coffee pic per week, along with “significantly elevated” levels of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
A higher frequency of sharing this specific type of image on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter was positively correlated to greater levels of Christian virtue across the board, with those sharing their quiet times at least once per day achieving maximum earthly Christlikeness.
“This new study makes official what so many of us have long suspected,” confirmed Scott McConnell, associate director of LifeWay Research, pausing for a brief moment to check his Instagram notifications. “If you share a lot of pics of your Bible and a cup of coffee—the more often the better—you are one holy Christian.”
