Discussion for Matthew 15

    The Jews had laws they followed only in rituals, outward shows of faith. But if their faith required them to actually do its works of charity or forgiveness, they were not interested.
    After all, they do not have to honor their parents or feed the fatherless and widows because they can go to the temple and pay the priests for a helpless animal to be slaughtered in their name and walk out blameless!

    When I was 18 I had had scoliosis for 2 yrs. I am 75 now. At 18 my left hip was 4 in. higher than my right; my spine was a backward 'S'. In June of '60 the Lord healed me, but I didn't know it was Him for 10 yrs. In '60 I had 'heard' there was a God; that was about it. I 'learned' that much in a mainstream church. So, Jesus does heal without OUR prayers, but I KNOW someone was praying for me.

    Im just trying to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26 NIV "It is not right to take the childrens(Jews) bread (Word of God)and toss it to their dogs." (Gentiles) 24:" I have only been sent to the lost sheep of Israel." He was trying to save HIS "lost sheep" first. When the woman gave her reply,jesus found favor in her and healed her daughter. God is good.
