Bishop David Oyedepo, a well-known Nigerian pastor and televangelist, said in a recent speech that earbuds are particularly meant to stifle people’s spiritual progress.
According to him, this occurrence robs Christians of their ability to hear God, and Satan takes advantage of the situation to lead them astray.
During the sermon, he continued, “We live in a very raucous period.” Please pay attention to what I’m saying, youthful generation. Everything you put in your ear is getting in the way of your growth. The devil devised it to block your development.
I didn’t have time for God to speak to me. Many people have never heard from God or gotten a communication from Him. They also use it to plug it in on the streets. There’s a lot of background noise! There is no way to obtain divine guidance. There is a lot of noise early in the morning, late in the afternoon, and late at night.
In one source, I read about a circumstance in South Korea. 10,000 churches are scheduled to close in the next ten years, an average of 1,000 every year.
Why? “Sir, I don’t hear anything,” children and young people will comment while they sit in Church (with earphones).
He went on to suggest that Service was about to stop, and they wouldn’t know until they glanced around and saw no one. They’ll then leave. That’s how horrible things are.
The devil is out to sabotage the fate of future generations. He’ll soon take your Bible from your hands, allowing you to explore the trash while at church. There’s a lot of foolishness in church.
Do you think they’re taking notes on what you’re saying? No.
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, (Shows someone absorbed in a mobile device.)
