The founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo has banned youths using earphones from entering the Church saying those using the devise are not ready to hear God’s words.
Bishop Oyedepo said earphones are designed by the devil to block youths from moving forward in life.
The clergyman spoke while addressing his members during Sunday’s Service at the Church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State.
His words: “We live in a very rowdy time. Young generation, please listen to me: all these things you plug in your ear will block your way forward. It is designed by the devil to block your way forward.
“No time to hear from God. Many have never heard anything from God. They even plug it in anywhere, on the streets: noise, noise, noise! Zero access to divine guidance. Noise in the morning, afternoon, night.
“We had a situation in South Korea, I saw it in one publication. Now 10,000 Churches were said to close down within 10 years, an average of 1,000 Churches per year. Why? Children, young people will sit down in Church (with earphones): don’t hear nothing Sir.
“I know they don’t do that here because CCU (Crowd Control Unit) is here, you plug something in your ears, while you are in Church? Never. Go somewhere else. Never, you sit down tight, hear the Word or stay on the road. Life is about discipline. I started understanding the Word from the age of 16. I was responding accordingly.”
