CHURCH & CHRISTIANS
The volume on the PA is always cranked UP high .
In church when the floor seating starts to get crowded everyone simultaneously, like a wave, moves closer to the side and front – usually under the prompting of the pastor’s wife.
Singing in church goes from 1 to 1 ½ hours without a break
Many Christians know what they believe but they don’t know why they believe it. Apologetics is weak here.

If you ask someone to read a passage of Scripture three people start reading aloud in a seconds! (February 3, 2016 Vijayawada, India)
Matthew 6:25-27 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about the body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food or the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air, they do not reap or store away in barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not more important than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to His life?”
