Is God Deaf?

Sometimes it's difficult to pray in our churches because of the new practices that emanate in Christendom day by day. What is the purpose of shouting, screaming and yelling during prayer sessions in the church because the drama distracts me a lot?.  Is God deaf?.

Do you have to make repetitive plea to God over one issue? Is God deaf and forgetful?

Will your dancing, theatric stunts and tears make God to come to your rescue? Can God be persuaded?

the irony of this is if you refuse to do the same and pray quietly, some will view you as unGodly and an unbeliever. Are this people screaming on top of their voices not Pharisees?. ShiiiiiiiiiT!!!

@All

It's the 28th of December, 2008 and there still is no sign of Yashua (aka Jesus) of 2000 years ago.

Jesus told the Father to "let this cup pass him by".

I don't think that sounds like someone who wants too come back.

Keep praying, maybe God will hear your prayers, and send Yashua (aka Jesus) back.

You are not only stalking me but also judging me. what is a response in another thread doing here?. Did you copy the whole transcript to display what led to that or did you just clip it to paint me black?. When did I tell you that I am too righteous to a fault?. I think that lack of husband and sex coupled with old age is finally affecting your brain. Leave me alone you ugly monster. Get a plastic surgery done on your face and bosoms so that kids in your neighbourhood will stop having nightmarish dreams in broad daylight. Ezi ofia.

Noise really isnt good for human health talkless of those that try to subtract from your hours of rest.

Religious affiliations shouldnt blind us to the fact that whats wrong is just so wrong!

Our freedoms are within the confines of peace of life for everyone else.

I frown on churhes using external speakers for programs, on mosques waking you up on days you're off duty.

this is the 21st century, you dont need to shout at the top of your voice to call to prayer, send sms messages for daily reminders!

then its really not ok siting churches and mosques in residential areas.Religion should be personal not something that becomes a health hazard for other people.

its only in nija that these crap goes unpunished.

The biblical god should be telling himself all these because he has commited so many iniquities against humanity in the bible. . . his hands are defiled with blood when he killed babies because their parents worshiped other gods and so many irrational and unjust killings, and his finger with inquity when he instraucted the jews on how to share virgins after leading them from an unjust war. . .his lips have spoken so many lies in the bible and his tongue mutters so much wickedness, not even satan the supposed originator of evil has mutted such wickenedness like the biblical god dividing people according to tribe, race and religion, encouraging people to enslave each other etc. . . go read up your bible properly not the juicy parts, they are all therein

Isaiah 59:1 ,

Behold the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save,or his ear dull, that it cannot hear; but your iniquities have made a separation Between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies; your tongue mutters wickedness.

you believe in a god that kills people for no reason? you want to be saved by a god that kills babies just because their parents worship other gods? you believe in a god that instructs people on how to enslave each other? you believe in a god that kills ten of thousand of people because they looked into an ark of covenant? you believe in a god that encourages people to steal and lie? i dont want any thing to do with such a god. . . . man created god in his own image. . . . live like kings because ye are gods. . . . . . . .

And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.

I think you may persuade God by doing what is right first and not dancing and disturbing the neighbourhood. The bible ma sef said that tears do not move God. In the east, if a morning crier is preaching the gospel and disturbing people from their sleep, you dare not ask him or her to stop otherwise you will be labeled a demon. we either live with it even though they inconvinence us for fear of offending God that probabaly do not approve of that behaviour. if there is an uncompleted building near your place of residence, you go hear am because church people will move in, make sure you don't sleep in your home every sunday because they will make so much noise to aggravate you. that is what pentecostalism brought to Africa. Zip it or live with it but their days of freedom are coming to an end because so many people are getting concerned about that behaviour.

It appears so, and with many things. David danced his way to God's heart; God, it appears, is impressed by dancing in praise of him. But there's no evidence he prefers a trado-Nigerian mix of music and dancing to harps and strings and stuff like that, the sort that David employed. What's more important: God is persuaded by cold, clear, irrefutable logic. A favourite encounter was with Moses, when God, angry as could be, boomed he was going to exterminate the Israelites after they's survived Egypt and Pharaoh's army. Moses - clearly in his elements - reason with God: don't do it, eh; if you did, the Egyptians will get to know, and they'll figure what the heck! they got away from us and their God couldn't help them in the wilderness, Not even the offer of making Moses a great nation doused Moses' relentless logic. God, of course, saw reason. There's another encounter (probably this same with Moses, don't recall clearly), but the question God was asked was: '. . . will God not do what is right?". Damn! a shocker. To His credit, on those occasions, the Hebrew tribal God was reported to have seen reason. This is powerful, and enlightening.

How come the early christians never used to shout and scream like the current pentecostal churches. The anglican, Catholic, Methodist never used to worship like this. Its only in the last 20 yrs we have witnessed this new phenomenum. Imagine people praying and shouting as if there is war in the worship ground. God sees what is in a persons heart and u dont need to shout and do all the stunts before He sees you. Its all these hyponotism and hullaballoo that makes all these naive people empty their pockets to an already stupendously rich pastor and some would even trek back home.

1 Peter 3:12

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull that it cannot hear; but your iniquities have made a separation

Between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies; your tongue mutters wickedness.

Gamine complain she's tired of clapping in the church when she is not tired of typing a full story on nairaland everyday with the same hand given to her by God. Most of the people that scream in the church anyways are not aware of their actions because they were under the influence of the holy spirit at that time.
