Freedom Rally: What would Jesus do?

July 12, 2013

Regarding the prayer service ("Freedom Rally") held in Rehoboth July 4, I wonder what Jesus would say about religious marketing stunts held during the busiest beach holiday of the year?

Well, we already know from Matthew 6:5,6:

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door..."

Well said, Jesus.
