ADVANTAGES OF USING BIBLES IN SMART PHONES AND TABLETS

Why Christians Must Use Bibles in Smart Phones These Days
Bible was first in leather scrolls, then in papyrus, also called codex or animal skin parchment, and then in Gutenberg printed Bible, moving on to the present paper print. The process goes on and now we have our Bibles in digital pixel form in smart phones and tablets. Through history people changed from one format to another when they found a better, easy and comfortable one. Can Christians use digital Bibles in smart phones, instead of printed ones? Technology has seen Scripture move first from parchment to paper and now to digital Bibles on smart phones. The message remains the same; it is the format in which we read that has changed. To read a verse in one format rather than in another does not indicate a person is more faithful or less faithful to Scripture, more committed or less committed to the truths of the Bible. It is only a change in reading format. In God’s eyes, reading his Word is more important than the format you read it in. The greatest benefits of several free and also paid Google Play Smartphone Bible Applications are, I can pull up any Bible version , compare versions, search commentaries and concordances, do advanced Bible study, listen to the audio and right pronunciations of names even as the verses scroll along with audio, can change fonts and background, book mark important verses, carry easily anywhere and read or listen to the Scripture from anywhere, listen to it even while driving, use it inside the church in silent mode abstaining from other pop ups by right phone settings, getting access to any verse quickly, can easily share verses with friends through email or social media or even look up to a Greek or Hebrew word. Smartphone has become part of our lives in almost everything because of the in-built features for our every day needs and also the availability of Mobile Apps for almost everything and is easy to carry smartly in our pockets. Some people think it’s weird when they see someone using Bible in smart phone or tablet in church because of the psychological feeling associated with their generational gap, having grown up without cell phones, tablets, and computers. If they are not comfortable with smart phone technology, what if I tell them, paper printing too is an advanced technology and they must insist on Bible in oldest animal skin parchment only! Well, there is another reason why you must give up using Bibles in paper print. The paper publishing industry is one of the least green sectors in the world, harvesting around several hundred million trees each year. Bible used in digital form helps reduce the number of trees destroyed.
Please go digital. Do remember this fact. Our lives are often the only Bible many people will ever read.
