Why Pastors Make Me Mad ... Unrepentent Blabbermouths!

I'm not looking for 'a debate' here, but I'm not sure how many pastors I've told 'Forgiveness is THE action that "activates" your prayer, which is why Jesus said "When you stand praying, forgive if you have aught against any!"' But I guess--humans' minds being overtaken by the Adversary--I have to make my 'call for change' more-urgent: IF YOU DO NOT VERBALLY 'FORGIVE IF YOU HAVE AUGHT AGAINST ANY,' GOD IS NOT LISTENING TO THE REST OF YOUR PRAYER!

@mythociate Yes, I am suggesting that there are similarities. More specifically I am making a suggestion that we can follow Jesus by emulating him. As we read in the bible Jesus too meant with religious people. Not all were receptive of his ways though some were.

@Bluedoll Yeah, I'm seeing that's the way He did it; and I am emulating Him there (not because that's always the way He did it, but because it's the way that works). You know the famous John 3:16, right? ("For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that none who believe on Him should perish but have everlasting life") That was Jesus speaking TO A LEADING PHARISEE---in private, & not in front of any of the people.
