Matthew 6:5,6 “When you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you,they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you”. Why do so many Christians pray publicly in restaurants, closing their eyes and bowing their heads, or finding opportunity to pray out loud to be heard by others when Jesus plainly teaches against it. Other religions do this too, but we are to be set apart from them. If Jesus is our teacher, and we are his students, we would be failing the class with this action. Some people don’t like following the rules.

Hi, my name is Jeff and I grew up in Rockford,Michigan. I enjoy studying classical guitar, reading, and studying the scriptures. I've served in many churches and studied all their creeds and traditions. It's been a great journey and now I'm sharing what I've learned. I hope this helps you navigate the narrow road.
