Q & A: THE BIBLES VRS. ELECTRIC DEVICES FOR PREACHING AND TEACHING?
Many pastors and teachers are now using iPads and laptop computers instead of Bibles while preaching and teaching. Recently, my thoughts concerning the advisability of this were stirred as I watched a pastor, iPad in hand, conducting an observance of the Lord’s Supper. Certainly there's a time and place for pastors to use electronic devises for study purposes and an occasional power point presentation. I use them myself in ministry work. But I'm convinced that it's best to keep these devices out of sight and the Bible in sight as much as possible during public ministry.
