Going to church has always been a tradition that you are taught to embrace from a young age.

Through every stage of church-going, you learned a few tricks that were either helpful or simply irritating to the serious people around you. Sometimes we are just bored of the preacher especially if he is new or the praise and worship team is not sounding good at all.

Regardless of how much you love your church service I am quite sure that you have been guilty of these 11 things.

1. You pretend you’re on a bible app but Instagram got you a long time ago and the memes are fire.
