Church Surfing

I'm an iPod Touch owner--and I'm addicted to it. But while I use it for a lot of fun activities, I also use it to read the bible. At first, I started doing this because it was techy and I love techy things, but it's REALLY handy. If you have an iPod Touch or iPhone, just go to the moble version of www.biblegateway.com and you'll never go back.

I actually use this in church. One of the many great things about the iPod Touch or iPhone is that it doesn't have buttons and you can use it without bringing much (or any) attention to yourself.

So, yesterday I went to look up something in the book of "Jude" that my pastor referred to during the message. However, Apple has built in this usually handy tool to correct your spelling with popular words from the English language. So, instead of looking up "Jude" I was looking up "Nude" online...at church (even though I typed, "Jude.")

Thankfully it only looked up "Nude" as it appeared in the New American Standard Version of the bible. Thank G....I mean, thankfully.

That had the potential to look very bad if someone was watching you. Technology is wonderful, but has its limitations as well.

I like it.

"Will everyone please turn the ringers off on their Bibles, please."

Three cheers (and a huzzah) for the NASB!

I love my ipod touch. I down loaded a free Bible app from the app store. It contains the entire Bible and you don't have to go online to look anything up.

You can also look up specific references really fast.
