It made some question the reality of Christianity.
It made some think that I was a pretender.
It made many regard my spiritual welfare and that of others as a matter of little concern.
It weakened the effect of the Church service.
It made it more difficult for the preacher to preach.
It discouraged others, and therefore robbed them of a blessing.
It caused others to stay away from church.
It made it harder for me to meet the devils temptations.
It gave the devil more power over lost souls.
It encouraged the habit of non-church going in me and in others.
