NOTE; OPERATING MOBILE PHONE IN THE CHURCH AS BIBLE IS SINFUL IN THE SIGHT OF GOD, GUILTY OF THIS; WILL LICENSE YOU STRAIGHT TO HELL OR BE LEFT BEHIND AFTER RAPTURE.
How can you be making calls and the message of God is going on, that shows how disrespectful you are. I remember sometimes ago, i was attending a Sunday service in a church, when the pastor was quoting the bible verse, a young man on my side was using ipads to read bible while message was going on. Later on, he decided to whats-app a message to a friend but I rebuked him that such disrespectful attitude is wrong.
As a pastor, if your church member is using ipad to quote the bible scripture, please correct them and encourage them to use their bible. If you want to use your mobile phone, it must be after the close of the service. Moreover, many Christian uses their mobile phones and laptops to win souls for Christ in social media but ignorantly losing their own soul to the devil through that same device due to ignorant.
Now let me ask you as a believer proclaiming that you are born again, when last did you preach to that girl you are chatting love messages with on social media? When last did you share the gospel of Jesus Christ to that girl, instead of preaching to her about repentance, you are busying chatting love message to her, remember you know very well that one day you will give account of that soul you luring into sin.

My son, I will show you how to overcome the enemy so you can save MY CHURCH and other souls hungry for my salvation. You see, the strategy of the enemy will never change. In the Garden of Eden, he used what was around man to destroy what was in man.
When the devil attacks your finances, it's not because he needs your money, because Lucifer doesn't spend money in the dark world. He doesn't attack your marriage because he wants to marry your spouse; he doesn't attack your car because he wants a new ride. You see, when the devil attacks any of these things, it's because he has realized your heart is connected to them. So if he can touch them, then he can touch your heart and destroy you. The devil will always use what is around you to get what is in you.
My Church is in trouble. But I will still save those who want to be saved. So go and spread this message to all men, delivering them from the venom of Sin. Tell them to be more mindful of the sins that corrupt the soul, than the witch that stole their money, because if a witch can steal your money, it's because it first corrupted your soul through sin"
That's why we don't care living in sin and immorality but we are scared of not getting a marriage partner, or not making a lot of money. We scream Holy Ghost fire-fire-fire, while our heart is as cold as winter. We have neglected the messages that prepare people for the second coming of Jesus Christ and all we talk about is how to make money and be prosperous on earth.
And the more the messages of Repentance, Holiness, Fear of God, Heaven and Hell are neglected, the more sin increases, and the more sin increases, the more the Churches fall before Satan. 1 Samuel 12:20-25 And Samuel said to the people “Do not be afraid; you have done all this evil. Yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. And do not turn aside after empty things that cannot profit or deliver, for they are empty.
For the Lord will not forsake his people, for his great name's sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for himself. Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and the right way. Only fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king"

Lastly, without repentance, there will be no Revival and we all shall be left with is noise making. I believe you have just behold the godly principles and ways of identifying a genuine bible believing church and major problems or challenging face the church of Christ. As i have always said; there are two members in every church--The Observers and the participant. Are you an observer in your church or a participant? It't time to work because there is no much time available.
