iPhone Blooper

A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read.” -Mark Twain

The other day I visited a church for the first time and was ushered to a seat in close proximity to the front.  In the sermon the preacher made a point in Scripture and I reached for my iPhone to find the verse.  All it took was one false click because the sound of Gospel Music blared throughout the auditorium.  After I anxiously turned it off, someone whispered, “Hey man, do you normally go to Black Church?  You got soul.”  Facepalm!  I sunk into my seat and desperately tried not to draw any more attention to myself.  Although I’m happy that the Bible App reaches millions around the world, there is something irreplaceable about reading your Bible the old fashioned way and letting the pages hit you however God chooses to.  If you’re feeling ambitious, then don’t just read the Word, but begin to meditate on and memorize it so that you can draw even closer to God.  

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17, ESV). 


  1. Kind of funny to think that at one time, someone was getting chewed out for "Carrying that book!" leaving the sacred text written on scrolls ... we sometimes fail to remember that the Bible as we know it (on pages that turn) was once considered a very dangerous advancement of technology for the church to consider ... great post ... pretty sure anyone who started ministering in the last 20 years has had a tech moment ... mine usually come during the most intimate and quiet of worship services .. and in screams Skillet or something ...

    Again, great post

  2. Haha! Thanks for the funny response Patrick!
