Hypocrisy in church

When I was 8 years old, I wrote a poem after attending church one Sunday:

“Eleven o’clock on Sunday Morning,

Many hear that age-old warning,

Boast about their adoration,

Then forget their obligations.”

Even now, I still see so much hypocrisy – in churches, meeting houses, mosques, temples and synagogues. For Trump-supporting Christians, I wonder what they don’t understand about Matthew, Chapter 25 in the Bible. To paraphrase a portion:

Water to the thirsty; food to the hungry; care for the sick; visits to the prisoner; welcome to the stranger.

Where did Jesus say “Build the Wall”?
