  1. How about Evangelicals repeating “Hallelujah”, “I Will Worship You”, “You Are King”, “Come Holy Spirit, Come Holy Spirit”, “Amen”, etc. over and over again during praise, worship, and songs?

    1. Vince, I appreciate your question. The context of Matthew 6:7 is prayer not singing hymns or singing praise worship songs. When prayers are made to the God of the Bible, the prayer is a conversation with God, not the repetition of the same words over and over as in the Roman Catholic Rosary prayer. The one doing the praying pours out their heart before the God of Heaven. Below is the prayer of Christ to his Father in Heaven. Notice there are no repetitions.
      Matthew 26:39 (KJV) And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
      Matthew 26:42 (KJV) He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

      Below is part of the prayer of king Solomon to the God of the Bible. Once again notice there are no constant repetitions as in the Roman Catholic rosary prayer.

      1 Kings 8:22 (KJV) ΒΆ And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven:
      1 Kings 8:23 (KJV) And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart:
      1 Kings 8:24 (KJV) Who hast kept with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him: thou spakest also with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day.
      1 Kings 8:25 (KJV) Therefore now, LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me.

  2. I’m not talking about singing only. You have to admit that you repeat these words whenever you pray. “Praise You Jesus! Praise You, Lord! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!” I know because we did when we were still attending my uncle’s Evangelical church.

    There is no difference when Catholics pray the Rosary. Please be reminded that the centre of the Rosary is Christ, not Mary.

    1. Vince, you are assuming a great deal. You have never heard me pray. I am not an evangelical. I am a King James Bible believer.
      In Matthew 6:7 the Lord Jesus Christ is warning his disciples not to pray as the heathen. The heathen pray in repetition.
      Matthew 6:7 (KJV) But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
      Vince, I have personal experience with the Catholic church. My great grandmother used to pray the Rosary when I was a little boy. You are comparing apples to oranges. The Lord Jesus Christ is warning his disciples about the kind of prayers that Catholics do when praying the Rosary.

    2. Vince, if the Rosary is about Christ why does the Rosary mention “Hail Mary” 53 times and Jesus 6 times??? The Rosary is clearly about the Queen of Heaven and not the Lord Jesus Christ. Just because you say the Rosary is about Christ, does not make it so.

    1. Vince, I am aware that Catholics sing the Rosary. It does not matter. The Roman Catholic church teaches their people to pray the Rosary. The Rosary is vain repetitions. Just like the Lord Jesus Christ warned his disciples about in Matthew 6:7.
      Matthew 6:7 (KJV) But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
      Vince, I chose to believe the Bible instead of the Roman Catholic Church. You need to do the same thing.
