First, they must catch them in the act.

 

Then, an investigation: "Who are you praying to?"

 

 Answer: "The One who can hear us, Jehovah".

 

Response: "Prayers to that one are against the law !  Now you must be punished" .

 

Answer: "Well, if we are to be punished, then we may as well continue praying".

“God and his Kingdom are mocked and pushed aside;
His great name is slandered, its holiness denied.
Let’s share in its sanctification,
And declare it to ev’ry tribe and nation.”

🎵“I have listened to Jesus in these troublesome days,

He lights up my path.

As I hear and obey.”
