A gentleman identified on Twitter as VectorThaViper has caused great stir with his recent tweet in which he described the act of shouting in church so God hears one's prayers as selfishness.

According to Vector, such a mentality puts the Christian in competition with the other people who are also saying prayers to God. He further explains that such a mindset cannot be true Christianity since it puts oneself about the other people around. In his own words:

“Why the hell do people shout in church believing God would hear them more. If anything, it shows how selfish we are cos the volume increases mostly cos the individual vuvuzela wants “God” to answer him/her first. That! My brethren isn’t Christian. That’s competition.”

"Brother your mentality is rare. But please reduce the volume before those charismatics come for you"
