For the past couple of years, I have heard various local Church leaders in multiple locations talk about the "evils" of electronic media being used at Church. Many have the opinion that electronic media is inappropriate for church services, Sunday School, Priesthood, Relief Society, etc.
I can only assume they feel this because by leaving electronic media at home will remove the temptation of using it for non-church-related activities; e.g., texting, checking sport scores, etc.
One could say that the same argument is that if we don't have electronic devices in our homes, we will be less tempted to view "inappropriate" items on the Internet.
This past Sunday, I saw and heard Elder Claudio Roberto Mendes Costa of The Presidency of the Seventy use his iPad during his Sunday a.m. talk in Stake Conference. He called his iPad and iPhone (holding both up) something like his "can't leave home without them" devices. He spoke for 45 minutes without paper scriptures.
Smartphones and tablets provide a wealth of information at our fingertips. Reading scriptures, church books and manuals on these devices will become the norm.
I have read the Book of Mormon a couple of times on my mobile phone. I doubt I will ever return to reading and carrying paper scriptures and class manuals to church. In Sunday School and Priesthood, I find it easier and more efficient to reference materials via my hand-held device.
No longer do we need to guess what a general authority said in a General Conference or what Talmage wrote in Jesus The Christ. We no longer need to guess as to what political or cultural life might have been like 2500 years ago in some obscure location in the Holy Land.
Electronic media has become mainstream, especially when you see a General Authority using them in a Stake Conference.
Windmill failures are spectacular
