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
why Call names of churches?

Your belief is inconsequential, you have the right to belief anything you want, but just stop making rhetoric statements against ppls believe.
you have the ability to read, comprehend and accept a written statement.

Re: Here is why you Sleep in Church by samuelgogo: 6:04pm On May 21
We are all guilty of this sleeping thing in our various churches. I have slept on many occasions. Speaking about some minister's, like Chris Oyakielome Pastor David ibiyeome and the rest that was mention, my Brother. Even if Angel come down to preach in some churches people go still sleep. Pastor Enenche was preaching one day, and he notice someone who sat in front and was sleeping. He then joking or angrily told the person in question to go behind the church where urshers will organise mat for him to sleep. For the acclaim guy who said he doesn't believe in God and Jesus Christ, I pity him ooooo. Maybe God will cause him to under go a challenge that will cause God to be the last resort. Finally Pastor Enenche once told his congregation after he caught someone sleeping at one of the service that even if u will sleep in church, your eyes must be open.

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.

sleeping in the church is pardonable
but snoring in church is an unforgiving sin.look

Bible says, " a fool says in his heart, there is no GOD". Wake up!!! even Animals, plants, nature and instinct will prove you wrong.

Sir,
What do you believe, in the existence of no god at all?
That whether we are getting it right now or not all the struggles from time for and in the name of God is nothing?.
Religion and religious ideas and laws form the basics of our laws; no God?
Almost all the world calendars stem from religions, including the Gregorian that tells you when to expect salary; no God too?

Please expantiate on the bolded
Have you ever see a Muslim praying during their Friday jumat service sleeping? Or IFA priest sleeping during worshipping their god or performing rituals? See if you are in spirit and your full attention is in that service God will surely speak to you time to time in different ways within the service and you won't even find it comfortable to sleep. But when you are weak spiritually you will always want to go out of His presence, you will keep seeing what they are doing in the service as wasting of time.

I dont know anything about islam so i cant speak on it (i get your point) I know spirituality is important but that doesnt mean the physical part should be neglected. Some pastors might be very strong spiritually but theyll end up being bad teachers that you wont be able to understand the message being passed acrossed if that happens your attention wont be on what the pastor is saying. And if it is redundant. Youll totally lose focus and unconsciously fall asleep.
" If a pastor/preacher is preaching well. Youll see God in what he is preaching. But if he doesnt preach or talk well. You wont see God. It will just be another man talking therefore you wont see God...whether you are weak spiritually or not. You wont concentrate?"
Note- People dont sleep when its time to sing or pray....people sleep mostly when the pastor is preaching









Slawomir. You said the knowledge of good and evil has been instilled on you since birth. Who instilled it. How do you determine good and/or evil ? It falls back to religion. I am not judging you for what you believe. I am just making an enquiry
