Matthew 6:1-10 — Really!

I was reading my Bible today. Yes, I own multiple Bibles, Torahs and a Qur’an, and I do read them to catch up on the world of the Believers. This time, however, the causation of my research was initiated by a member of LinkedIn’s Freethinkers group response to my column concerning the August 6 Governor Rick Perry’s weekend revival – The Response.

Uncle Mythman Jay wrote “I want to GO to that meeting just to run up on stage, knock over everything up there and give him a bunch of JESUS’ OWN WORDS on how what he is doing is WRONG (‘hypocrites … offering false praise on the street corners … hypocrites!)”

The reference was made to Matthew 6:5  – “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.” (NIV)

However, the Believer should be more concerned with Matthew 6: 1-10 in total. This passage not only concern Perry’s revival but all tent ministries and mega churches. I limit it to churches because I have never heard of a mega-temple, and because this is part of the Christian Bible, I will not discuss Islam. But I can if you would like.
