The church calls earlier reports on the ban “highly mischievous”
Pastor W.F Kumuyi, the presiding pastor over the Deeper Christian Life Ministry otherwise known as Deeper Life Bible Church was said to have placed a ban on iPad and Android devices in his church hereby discontinuing the use of such electronic gadgets by members of his church for Bible references and the likes during services.
Following the widely-spread reports, the church felt the need to clear the air by posting a message on Facebook and dubbing earlier claims on the ban as totally false.
Read the message:
“Pastor Kumuyi of Deeper Life Bible Church bans the Use of iPad & Android Devices” – Encomium Weekly.
The above report has been trending in the Social media from Tuesday, 15 July 2014.
THIS REPORT IS FALSE.
There was never a time as referred to in the article, when Pastor W.F. Kumuyi made this statement or “BANNED” the use of mobile devices in the Church. As much as every Christ-loving believer is encouraged to give God his/her full attention when in Church or in any other place, where the Word of God is being taught, this story is HIGHLY MISCHIEVOUS and MISLEADING.
There is no doubt that Technology has its place in the spread of the gospel message as well as believers’ development where such is put into proper use but its misuse or abuse is not encouraged.
“Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: FOR ALL MEN HAVE NOT FAITH. But the Lord is faithful, WHO SHALL STABLISH YOU, and KEEP YOU FROM EVIL” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-3.
Remember, it is not everything from these sources that is true!
May the Lord keep you in the Truth and not be tossed about by errors, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
