Apostle Johnson Suleiman the senior pastor and president of Omega Fire Ministries while addressing members of the church on Sunday insisted that using phone in church is a disrespect to God
His reported speech is a s below:
Do not bring your iPhone, iPad and any pad to read the Bible from it in the church. You can do that in your office, you can do that when you are anywhere, but to read your Bible from the phone when you are in church, it doesn’t show reverence to God.
John 5:39 said Search the scripture, didn’t say punch the scripture. Joshua 1:8 said this book of the lqa not this tablet of the law or phone of the law. I know you are going to say there was no technology at that time; but God sees the end from the beginning. He knew there will be technologies before HE said this book of the law.
Luke 4:17 said open the book; V20 said close the book. Heb 10:17 said I come in the volume of the book down to the turn of your home. So don’t bring that when you are reading the Bible from your phone; it is not a sin but an error. There is a difference between sin and error.
Mat 22: 29, Jesus said to them, you do err not knowing the scripture is the power of God. Some people don’t live in sin but live in error. 1john 4:6, this is the spirit of error. We know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error; there is error.
Eccl 5:6 Do not say before an angel: it is an error. Eccl 10:5; there is an error I see under the sun. 2 Peter 3:18 we have escaped them that live in error. vs 17, they that live in error are led away by the wicked people.
So lets understand, place respect and value; do not use your phone in the church; do not open it to read the bible. Bring the book not the phone. Is that understood?
Don’t say everybody has been doing it or what about the others? Everybody can be wrong. That a lie has being in the office for a long time doesn’t make it the truth. Longevity is not legality; is that true?
Their are people who already has it. The problem with Nigerians is once they hold a position, for you to convince them, they device an argument. But the wise will listen.
Jesus said, let he that has hears….because not everybody brought their hear to the church, some left it at home. But those that brought their ear to church let them hear.
Now the question is, is this really an error?
What about the man of God, Pastor Chris of Christ Embassy Church, who has being using different gadgets to read people decades ago and even till now?
