Blackberry in Church?

Bob at Theology, Technology, and Anything In Between blogs about using a cellphone PDA in church:

I recently forgot to bring my Bible to church, and then remembered that I could use the NET Bible and ESV, by surfing to their websites. I know people at our church who have Bible software for their Treo, so I thought I should try it.

It’s not too bad. I like being able to access a different translation, especially one with translators notes, during a sermon. I helps to bring some perspective if there are different ways in which a word is being translated, or could be used.

Are we heading into a world where churches let you text the pastor your questions during a sermon? (At least a couple of churches already do.) We’re not saying it’s a good or bad thing, but it presents one possible direction in which the church is heading.

Oh, and we’ve mentioned the ESV Mobile site, haven’t we?
