Pastor David Ibiyeomie the Founder of Salvation Ministries, Port Harcourt, has said anyone who allows his phone to ring in a church is a poor man.
He made this known while delivering a sermon to his congregation on Sunday.
Pastor Ibiyeomie was quoted as saying that “Anyone whose phone rings in church is a poor man; his thinking is poor. Rich people don’t switch on their phones in church because they don’t want anybody to disturb them.”
He reiterated that “But poor people switch it on because they want alert; It is a sign of poverty. You will never see a wealthy man switch on his phone in church, he will say, ”
He said the rich man’s mentality is usually tailored at wanting to hear something that will help improve his life, while the poor man would say “make I see weda somebody go send me money”
He further said “It is a poverty mentality. You are in a church where the poor come and become wealthy.”
Pastor Ibiyeomie advised saying “Off your phone but if your phone rings you have signed up for poverty. Your mentality is poor, it’s not money in your pocket yet. Somebody say I hear,”
