As crazy as my computor gets I know the old way is the best. Kathy

Mindy said...

It's like our church! :) As much as I like the convenience of having a Bible on my computer, there's still something to be said about having the words in your hands.

This makes me smile because I actually do use my computer to reference scripture.

I hope I didn't ruin Just As I Am for you. ;-)

Beverly said...

Oops, that last one is me. Just call me trigger finger.

Just Me said...

Funny. We are building a new church and we will have theatre seats instead of pews. That is too updated for me *lol*

Good morning Sally,
Well I have waited for about an half an hour but my computer is doing some funny things. I can't see your cartoon ( this makes me sad) It sounds like a good one. I will check back later and I hope it will come up then.
God Bless,
Ginger

Oh, Sally...I do use my computer for Bible study. But,NOT in a church!! :O)
The wonderful thing I love is the Verse A Day widget on our sidebars. If I don't have a chance to read a bit in my Bible one day, I at least get to read the verse. Oh, I love that! It is just a small way of keeping HIM close to me during the entire day...I have at least "touched base" with HIM during that day.
HAPPY SUNDAY, bj

I love the sound of turning the pages in the bible. I need to carry it and be able to underline and make notes. I prefer the book to the computer for study.

Cute Sally... As usual, you made me smile on a Sunday morning.

Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

jeanne said...

This is not right. LOL. Sally I pray we never take our computers to church. I am rushing to get ready for church right now. My first Sunday since surgery. We would have gone last week but we were in FL. My ex-dil only has a few more days and she is sedated. I am so thankful we went last weekend when she was able to visit.

Have a wonderful Sunday Sally and thank you for your sweet comment on my Spring post.

Hugs...Jeanne

PS. I just commented on PS.

Dear Sal:
These comments are as funny as your post. I always know I'm in for something good when I visit you. I appreciate you so much.
Hugs,

As we have already made a transition from open your Bibles to look at the screen and read along I am not sure we might not go there.

I'm beginning to see more and more people using "had helds" at church.
This isn't for me, but I guess "to each his own".

Jannie Funster said...

Nope, nothing like a nice leather bound bible for me.

Cherdecor said...

I like this! Great cartoon, but why not???? I read the Bible on line all the time. I always read the KJV but when I don't understand, I go to other translations. If I want a cartoon version, I go to the Message. Sometimes I just have to laugh at that one.

Sandi@ My Yellow Door said...

Great cartoon, Sally. Give me the old fashioned way with the Bible any day! Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,
Sandi

My husband uses a PDA in church -- he can look up the reference, make notes, etc. I often use the computer if I am studying something -- it's nice to have tabs open for the Scripture, a Bible study aid, and notes, rather than having several books open all over the table. But for just reading or for church, I like my actual physical Bible. I wouldn't condemn electronic usage even in those cases -- whatever means people use to get into the Word is great!

marty39 said...

I still love the feel of just entering church and being amongst other believers. It just warms my soul. Thanks for stopping by and your always gracious comments. Hugs, Marty

Dawn said...

Technology is something isn't it? I love technology but sometimes I think the "old fashioned" way is the way to go.

Thanks for stopping by today. You are not the first person who wants to be adopted by me LOL!

take care,
Dawn

This does seem to be the way everything is going. Some magazines may have caused their own demise by having so much information on their websites!

I wouldn't want to do this in the assembly but it does make me laugh. It is a sign of the times. O.S. Hawkins preached for us today and a loud--and I do mean loud, cell phone went off just as he said he wished he could call the apostle Paul up to the pulpit. He didn't miss a beat he just said, "Maybe that's him calling now."

If it gets some of the male species to actually "read" the scripture then I am all for it. I too use the real deal "the Bible" my pages and all. Just wish the people that are on this gizmo for other reasons would read the scripture even if it means on this gizmo! Thanks Sally!

Charlotte said...

This is so funny. I hope the day never comes that it comes to this. I love to use my computer at home, but in church? Naaa!
Charlotte

Charli and me said...

Good evening Sally. No, I would not want to see computers in church. I guess you could say I'm old fashioned.

Lorrie said...

This is a cute cartoon Sally. At our church the Scriptures are projected onto a screen up front for everyone to see.

God Chaser said...

Cute- I agree tech is good and I use it- but havingthe bible in my hand to read the printed version is so much better.
Have a wonderful SS

playsdolls said...

Nope,I do not think the computer is for church,too many distractions.

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

I don't think I would want that to happen too (eventhough I love computers :-) ). call me old-fashioned but I's still want my bible with me.

♥ Kathy said...

LOL that's funny but no thank you :D

Killlashandra said...

Funny it quite possible true especially for the younger generation. Sometimes you do what you have to make sure they're reading what they need to be reading.

Ms.Daisy said...

Sally,
I love technology as much as the next person but, my Bible in my hands is the what I want. Our small church is over 200 years old and we don't have large screens up front or any techno stuff at all, for that matter, and we like it that way! LOL!

Blessings,
Jean

I could not see this last week, but now I can it is so true but sad. I hate to admit it but I too use the computer to find things. I have my Bible next to me once I find what I'm looking for I look it up in the Bible.
