Monday Morning Question of the Day

I've noticed a trend at church lately-
the trend of NOT bringing a Bible to church,
but using the Bible app on an iPhone or Blackberry.

I used to see one or two people doing this
but lately have noticed a rather large increase and see lots of people doing it.

Now as someone who has an iPhone
(and absolutely LOVES it)
I will admit that I do have a Bible app on my phone.
It's come in handy when trying to think of a certain verse
when talking to a friend or writing in a card to a friend.
I do not, however, use it at church.

To me, there is something special and
sacred about opening my Bible and reading it.
That I can go from one verse to another-
that I can turn those precious pages-
that I absolutely love.

Seeing people reading the Bible in church on their
phone bothers me a bit and I'm not sure why.
Am I being legalistic?
Does it really matter in what form someone
reads the Bible, as long as they are reading it?
I simply don't know.

So my question to you today is.........

Do you think it's odd to use your phone to read the Bible in church?
Do you?
Would you?
Does the idea bother you? Why or why not?
