Texting in Church!
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Since when is texting in church acceptable??????
My husband is beside himself over this. Three years ago a family left because my husband called the teen out during service after previously talking with her, then family, and it continued. Big hoo haw.
NOW, there's another teen girl doing this, all during the service her face is stuck in her screen, oblivious to the sermon, whatever else is going on. Grandma and Grandpa sees this and say nothing.
My husband has spoken to the girl, and Sun. the Grandma.
What ever happened to respect in God's house??? I'm afraid there is no "real" churches left in this country if this is happening everywhere. "Church" is no more. It's a community center for fellowships, get togethers, a country club.
My husband may lose his position here because of these "toys".
These "toys" are the ruin of common courtesy.
Oh yes, the Bible is on the "toy", but there are Bibles provided, no need for those gadgets that are so distracting. A message may pop up and there you go, on a rabbit trail away from worship.
Anyone else upset by this phenom?
