Most of you probably received a “Resident to a Friend” letter from “St. Matthews’s Churches” in Tulsa, Oklahoma this week. It instructs the recipient to get down on the enclosed “Prayer Rug” and ask God for some really big things: joy, peace, money, a car, a house, etc. Of course there is a line on the letter you are to return to indicate and enclose your “seed gift to God’s work.” The Apostle Paul said the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh” (II Co 10:14, NASB)! One could hardly find a more shameless appeal to the flesh than this scam.
