I don’t know about others, but to me, if someone attends Christmas service and ends up talking while the speaker is speaking, that person might as well not come at all. It makes no difference, maybe just disturbing others.
It does not show any respect to God’s annointed, the Pastor of the church, when he’s preaching God’s Word, and someone talks.
If I did that, wouldn’t I be just like a Jewish leader in the synagogue who simply despised Jesus, God’s annointed?
After all, all those who stand before the pulpit brings forth God’s Word. Their messages/sermons/sharings may seem to bore one, or may seem as if it were insignificant to one’s life. They may even do “funny” things when they preach.
One may laugh, joke.
I hope that I myself will remember that they are God’s annointed ones and are not to be made fun of (no one should be made fun of!). Remove all negative mindsets on leaders of the church!
In Acts 17:10-15 simply speaks of how open-minded the first Christians were in Berea. It even says, “They listened to the message with great eagerness and everyday they studied the Scriptures to see if what Paul was said was really true.”
Isn’t this cool? I’m amazed by how the Christians in Berea reacted!
They are God’s annointed ones.
We serve the same God, past, present, future!
And that’s why there is no Goded for the past and Goding for the future.
