While I love the fact that LifeChurch.tv has made the Bible more accessible and put into more hands than ever before, statements like these make me sigh and wonder what kind of direction the Church today is going.

When Jen Sears, 37, a human resources manager in Oklahoma City, wants to pray these days, she leaves her Bible behind and grabs her phone instead.

“I have my print Bible sitting on my dresser at home, but it hasn’t moved” in the four years since she downloaded YouVersion, Mrs. Sears said.

I rejoice in the fact that the Word of God is made so widely available due to the benefits of modern technology, but when your phone is the first thing you reach for to do your devotions, it just doesn’t mean the same thing to the watching world that we slowly become more and more like.
