On Repetitions, Vain or Otherwise

At an average Vacation Bible School, if you were to suggest, “Hey, let’s recite the Apostles’ Creed every morning,” everybody would flip out and they would lecture you sternly, about vain repetition and how it would rapidly become meaningless.  But if you were to say, “Oh, well let’s dispense with the Pledge of Allegiance then,” you would rapidly discover that it’s not meaningless at all.  We have a high view of America and a low view of the Kingdom.
