'Charging Your Phone In Church Is A Sin', See Pastor Who Said So
If you are one of those who like to hustle over charging points for your phone in church, you may end up in hell.
Maybe not exactly, but that is what Bishop Michael Osagie, the General Overseer of Bible Believers Ministry seems to be saying.
He told NAN in Oluku, Benin on Tuesday, September 18th that the practice is a sin “and against the laws of the church’’.
He condemned the practice of charging phones, note pads, touch lights amongst others, while church service was going, saying it was a major distraction to the preacher.
“Sometimes when I preach on the altar, I get distracted, because I see some of my members fighting over charging points.
“I am amazed how believers of the gospel take the things of the Lord these days,” he said.
Ms Ruth Ikoko is an usher of the church and admitted that she was guilty of the ‘sin’ as her area had serious electricity problem.
She said that she came to church regularly to charge her phone and to also worship the Lord.
So, is it the fault of the people? There is no electricity at home and the church is their father’s house, isn’t it?
The cleric noted this problem and pleaded with the Edo government and the Benin Electricity Distribution Company to look into the poor power supply in the state with the view of improving it.
Ruth equally expressed the hope that the power situation would improve in her area so that she would stop charging her phone in the church.
