I personally find it annoying when teenagers think they could text their during the service. Or, when they wear certain clothes like its the runway. They don't keep in mind its God's House. 6-8 year olds playing with thier dolls, toy cars, or coloring distracts other worshipers. Doing these thing completely diminishes the point of bringing your kids to church. Who is with me here? Your thoughts?

Although I know what you are saying, it is important that we make sure that we are not judging others. Judging others is wrong. As the Bible says, man can only s the outside, but God sees the heart. I work with 1-4 year olds at church. It is impossible to keep a 2 year old quiet and still, even 3-4 year olds. 6-8 year olds, that's a little different. By that time, they should probably start learning how to sit still and listen, although it depends upon the child. Some children can listen better if they color or draw, but if they do color or draw, they should do it quietly, because you're right, and can distract others if done too loudly.

Thats true, in the other one that little surveyor wrote, i said that snacks, toys, and games on phones are probably a strategy to keep young kids quiet. But this could be damegeing to the kids behaviour later in life. It must be limited. I also agree with you Godsadvisegiver 12. and little surveyor, this is how kids were taught. Its not like they each had guns and forced there parents to let them do these things.
So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give you praise
Lord, let me praise you
For the grace by which I'm saved
Lord, let me sing

- Chorus of "Let me sing" by Andrew Peterson

SummerTimeSadness, don't get us wrong. We're not saying that people that text in church don't love Jesus, we're just stating that it can be seen as being irreverent.

people can go to church and hate Jesus with all their heart. people can text in church during the whole service and yet still truly love Jesus with all their heart. We can't look at people from the outside and assume that they hate or love God just by their actions. we've got to look at character. "by they're fruits you shall know them."

if you were ever invited to eat with the queen, would you be texting while she's talking to you?
It's the same thing with God!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

We can't be doing one step in one step out. The whole one in one out business is why God allowed the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah to be destroyed by Assyria and Babylon. Either we serve one or the other.
Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the needy and oppressed.
-Proverbs 31:6
