Not only the pastor but the entire congregation at times.
I am not against pastors using a tablet, rather replacing the physical bible with a tablet in the pulpit

As the pastor enters the pulpit to bring the word of God to the people of God, no hard copy of the bible is found in his hand, gracing the top of the podium visible to the entire congregation as the book at the center of attention, instead the congregation sees a tablet.

I believe there are several potential dangers this subtle shift generates.

Share your opinion....

I don’t really see it as 'proper'.

It distracts attention .

What is the bible? The word of God! The paper is not what matters, it is hat is written therein. If the tablet bible contains same words as the one written in the book then I don't get what the fuss is all about. Stop emphasizing paper jor. Me I prefer tablet sef, some of the apps have multiple versions all in one app plus commentary as well which is not common with hard copies and when you find hard copies with multiple versions plus commentary, most of the time, they would be very big and inconvenient to carry about. I use PC bible for my personal bible study. its so effective for me than hardcopy bible. Happy Sunday

If u think there is something wrong with reading bible from electronic devices, then why dont you stop texting, chatting, sending e-mails, and go back to sending letters via pigeons and post offices.

The scrolls are virtually extinct but the bible still exists. When papers are phased out, the bible will still exist.
It is not the physical form that matters but the 'life' in the words.

Didn't the paper version replace stone and scroll versions? Why are you not complaining about that?

Why are you not using stone and scrolls, the sorts used by Moses, Paul, and so forth?

Why would a devoted Christian be browsing porn in places of worship? A Christian shouldn't visit porn sites. It doesn't matter if they are in church or at home.

Set your device offline and concentrate. If you cannot, you are the problem, not the mobile device.

So when the bible was changed from ancients stone tablet to book form why didnt u complain?

My problem with Christianity is that it sees everything as a problem meanwhile is has solved nothing since its existence.

The bible is not the word of God...the creator(s) of this word if the is one or many, cannot semd us down an ancient jewish book as the only of knowing it/them.

When ur great grand children come into this world they will still foolishly hold the veiw that God wrote an e book for them.

It's simply an advancement in technology.


The same way pastors, or apostles if you will, no longer ride on horses and donkeys, but fly in private jets.

Bro what you people don't understand is that, your pastor cannot lead the line of his church on the judgement day, you have your separate judgement as well as the pastor. If you like do what the pastor do because you want to make heaven, Bro you will be surprise on the last day. Heaven is a free will choice, but when you ignore the word of God and start following what the pastor is doing, then surely you are facing somewhere but certainly not heaven

You are just delusional. Same goes to many people on this thread

If you want to prove a point at least don't make a fool out of yourself while at it.

Books are also results of science (technology). Back in those days (BC) words and memos were written on BOARDS (or books made from animal flesh)

It is not about the means of reading the word of God, it is about how you use the "Words" written in the Bible. (Study to show thyself approved)

"I shall meditate on it day and night" (Knowing the word and how to use it)

Those movies where you see pastors cast out Demons with a bible are just plain stupìd.

You don't need a bible to cast out Demons, you need to activate the word of God implanted in you (which you studied and approved).

Don't be too forward to make fun of yourself next time sir
