comment What does Jesus mean by “vain repetition” or “babbling” in Matthew 6:7?
@jim It has little to do with the factuality of the Gospel. He's referring to "the pagans." It is reasonable for us, not the Gospel writer, to assume the most prominent group of pagans at the time are relevant. It matters little to us who the author had in mind if he's just regurgitating what Jesus said.

Indeed. No promises though. It's been long enough since I submitted this answer that I can't remember what I was reading and listening to at the time. (Maybe Jimmy Akin?)
