Here is why you Sleep in Church by Debayor(m): 12:15pm On May 14
Sleeping in church isn't really a good act as I've found many worshippers guilty of this. Well, I think I've figured out 3 causes....
1. Boring Preaching/Teaching: Some pastors are not just good at biblical teachings and preaching. They should be able to relate the topic to present day happenings or experiences as this would spice up the preaching. They should also avoid repeating thesame message over and over again . My pastor isn't guilty of this anyway .

2. Comfort: The comfort provided in some place of worship is enough to make people sleep seff.. Very comfortable chairs, Air condition everywhere and projectors to display bible verses . I think this could also be a cause. Just saying tho'.

3. Inactive ushers: The ushers are very relevant in the church; aside guiding worshippers they ought to also wake any individual sleeping during the course of service . Some individuals can sleep comfortably from Sunday school to 'the grace' .. Lol.

Persin wey sleep for church, na sleep dey catch am.
On a more serious note, both the post and the theme are rather puerile and oversimple. Tiredness can be caused by a plethora of factors... You don't need to force spiritual or religious effects on natural causes.

No be who go church dey sleep for church? Lol



Why force yourself to church when you're only going to sleep off there? Why not stay home and enjoy your sleep on you comfortable bed?

anyway am not guilty of this because first I don't believe in one imaginary being called God and his deluded and over rated bastard son of a thousand father called jesus!

For my church ehn, pple dey sleep tire. There was a time pastor was preaching, assistant pastor was dozing, the next thing, he fell on d ground. Now stood up, knelt on his chair, and started praying.. The church members thought the Holy Spirit entered him, which was why he fell. But we the guys knew he was sleeping...

.........Out late the night before, possibly

Maybe that's one reason some pastors encourage participation from the congregation. “Can I get an Amen?”

We sleep in church when we are no more catching enough fun to keep us awake.....boredom

Smart Pastors know how to keep their church fun e.g by inviting a comedian to crack jokes grin in church because the new generation Christians seek fun in everything.

People sleep in church because they know it is all boolshit

The only reason people go to church is because of what people might say about them, to appear good, to catch babes, to feel among

Going to church is a total waste of time and money

spot on bro....I shake my head when people say certain members who sleep during sermon is because the devil is at work, that's complete BS.
Most of the time is due to no1, boring preachers. I attend an Anglican church and dayumm the vicars are way took boring. You could know something about a subject but you may not know how best to teach and engage ur members.

If u ever listened to Myles Munroe preach, or David Ibiyieomi or even pastor Chris. Your chances of sleeping is very Low. even if u are not a church goer, these men will say things to you that no pastor has ever told u.
They will stimulate ur brain cells instanta,lol
