(1) Thom 14:1-3 (with 6:1)

Jesus said to them, "If you fast, you will bring sin upon yourselves, 2 and if you pray, you will be condemned, 3 and if you give to charity, you will harm your spirits. 4 When you go into any region and walk about in the countryside, when people take you in, eat what they serve you and heal the sick among them. 5 After all, what goes into your mouth won't defile you; what comes out of your mouth will." [Complete Gospels]

6:1 His disciples asked him and said to him, "Do you want us to fast? How should we pray? Should we give to charity? What diet should we observe?" 2 Jesus said, "Don't lie, 3 and don't do what you hate, 4because all things are disclosed before heaven. 5 After all, there is nothing hidden that won't be revealed, 6 and there is nothing covered up that will remain undisclosed." [Complete Gospels]
