I use my ipad. I rarely bring my bible. When I study at home I use my bible sometimes because I have some parts highlighted that I read a couple of times a week. Sometimes it just feels good pagung the bible LOL. As per the phone though how conducive is it. How fast will it take you to get to the verse and still follow along without being distracted. It is not a sin but a phone as your Bible might be stretching it a little

Not advisable cos you could easily be distracted.

Not a sin, but what if AWILO music just boom out of the phone in the name of ringtone while reading a passage to the audience?

Besides there are many, many, many....maaaaaaany phones devices out there that allows you to HIGHLIGHT things. There are even phones where you can transfer bible verses to your memo pad and makes notes.

There are phones which will give you 3 different versions of the same verse, there are phones with apps that will include commentaries for better understanding, as a matter of fact there are phones with the app which does a fantastic job with Bible Study and breaking things down for you than 90 % of the Pastors out there.

One thing I know for sure, the phone is not gonna stand on the alter in his white suit, shouting "I can never be poooooooooooooooor" while his poor and ignorant congregation go into epileptic fits, praising "God" on his behalf.

I dare say, I would take a phone over any Naija pastor any day!!!


By the way, seriously LMAO @ Device of the Enemy!!! Jeeedus!! You people slay me!

Everything is of the enemy, the air is of the enemy, the birds are of the enemy, car is of the enemy, PCs are of the enemy. . .Naija pastors should be punished seriously for breeding a generation of Paranoid Schizos!!

Everyone you have all said well, but in my opinion using phone bible during service is not a sin! But one thing I tell you is that using it during service portrays the using as unserious and lazy! Even your ipad should not even be used....you should find joy in running through the bible during service so that you'll get aquinted with the pages. You might have millions of reason to use it, but I would never be caught dead in church with my bible phone or Ipad. I see many men of God now using IPAD during service....wow signs of end-time...we should disconnect from all forms of distraction in the presence of God.

Now answer this question during your lectures is it acceptable to use your phone textbook or Ipad in the presence of your professor? Your guess is as good as mine. So if you can respect man then why can't you respect the King of kings and be serious in his presence.

My opinion don't use your electronic bible (phone bible app and IPAD) during service....it is could be distractive and at the same time annoying and offensive to some people, they might think you are browing, twitting or checking facebook!

In addition, those gadgets are [b]very good [/b]when you are doing your personal bible study.

Shalom!

I know your post is not directed at mine but some might not be so discerning. So if you will be so kind as to quote the post you are really referring to, I will really appreciate it.

No offense but I don't want people thinking we are simpatico in thoughts. . .I'm sure you wouldn't want that either.

Ah! You modified your post!! Good!!

Now we know where everyone and their body stands!!! cheesy cheesy

On a side note, where was written that the Devil quoted the Bible for his purposes or is that a dialogue from a movie because surely it can't be from the Bible. I mean how on earth would the devil know how to quote the Bible if he is fleeing from it? Hmmmmmmm

1. Really? Lazy? So what will portray you as serious and hardworking? A tattered, survived-the-first-world-war bible?

2. So we want to get acquainted with the pages and not the message? Wow! I never knew.

3. Would you stop that already! You christians've been shouting of this end time for 2k+ years now. Believe me, it gets old. And where in revelations does it say, after the dancing dragons and the fires and the horses and the tattoos, that an ebible is among the signs of the beast?

Dude what you highlighted in that other post shows exactly what is wrong with Naija style Christianity and Naija Christians, everything is about outward appearances.. . that is why this ridiculous, senseless, jaw dropping in shock thread can make it to page 2.

Thank heavens. . .God is not Nigerian. cheesy cheesy

ignorance! Believe it or not, traditional paper-book bible sales are diminishing. Imagine in 200 years from now when they will be totally obsolete. I guess d devil will take over the world right? Weren't the ten commandments embedded in stone slabs? Technology progressed to using scrolls and ink then to the printing press and its now moving to electronic format. SHIKENA!

I sincerely appreciate every post in respect of the topic. However,

- I like to remind us that the Bible is A BOOK. The Book of the Law (of God).
- We also know that a book is its content - conveying specific messege
- A single Book can be in various forms -
Paper Book (or Printed form) - in computer we call this Hardcopy
E-Book - (electronic book) - book stored on a computing device
- For the information contained in a Book to reach a wider range of people it has to be made available in the various forms

Whether you carry a PAPER BIBLE or an ELECTRONIC BIBLE on a Laptop, Palmtop, DEsktop, Ipad, or any Smart phones does not matter to anyone except one exhibiting his/her level of ignorance and technology backwardness. What matters most is ARE YOU REALLY READING THE BIBLE (the particular format immaterial) with the whole of attention it requires? ARE YOU LIVING BY THE CONTENT OF THE BIBLE?


"How many people use their Paper Bible to only decorate shelves"
"How many people bring their newly bought Paper Bible to Church expecting your compliment and admiration of their Bible"


The reading of the Bible is to educate us about God, Man and man's only enemy among other things.

The world education system has changed from the primitive Blackboard to White Board to Interractive (Electronic) Board and many students are mandated to get Laptops as a requirement during admission. Even many secondary school students now use laptops in classes.

The truth is; this is the ELECTRONIC AGE. And the God of ALL AGES IS THE OWNER OF ALL INVENTIONS. He is chanelling many of His messages to mankind in different regions electronically - e.g Telivision, Radio, Internet, DSTV, etc. as He does with the printed formats on paper.

When it comes to Church service

- Be sincere of your intention or motives
- Do not deceive yourself
- If you notice it distracts others who are still very backward then you have 2 options
- You either stop using it or minimize the frequency of use and at the same time
- Take time to educate those showing concerns as to why the use of either phones, laptop, etc.
- In itself it is a normal thing. No big deal. Infact, it comes with a lot of advantages over paper Bible.
- However it is not a total replacement for the Paper Bible and vice versa.
