- @VectorThaViper, a Twitter user, has set social media ablaze with his latest post about shouting in church
- According to the young man, screaming for God to hear one's voice above others' is a form of competition and does not reflect true Christianity
- Social media users could not keep calm as they reacted wildly to the post
A gentleman identified on Twitter as @VectorThaViper has caused a great stir with his recent tweet in which he described the act of shouting in church as selfishness.
According to Vector, such a mentality puts churchgoers in competition with the others who are also saying prayers to God. He explains that such a mindset cannot be true Christianity since it puts a person's own needs above the needs of others.
“Why the hell do people shout in church believing God would hear them? If anything, it shows how selfish we are because the volume increases mostly because the individual wants “God” to answer him/her first. That! My brethren isn’t Christian. That’s competition.”

Vector's post which seemed rather controversial saw lots of comments from his numerous followers. Olajide says he is right but should be careful not to get in trouble with the post:
"Brother your mentality is rare. But please reduce the volume before those charismatics come for you"
According to @e_youngest the words Vector spoke have been an opinion he has longed for popular celebrities to say:
"I have been waiting for someone like a Celeb to say this all these while! That's a great thought T. Ẹ. S. L. I. M"
