Biblical Worldview post #49 – Jesus Christ reserved some of His most severe warnings for the religious hypocrites

Jesus Christ reserved some of His most severe warnings for the religious leaders of His day, the Pharisees, who were hypocrites

Matthew 23:24-28 (NLT) Blind guides! You strain your water so you won’t accidentally swallow a gnat; then you swallow a camel! “How terrible it will be for you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! You are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are filthy — full of greed and self-indulgence! Blind Pharisees! First wash the inside of the cup, and then the outside will become clean, too. “How terrible it will be for you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs — beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people’s bones and all sorts of impurity. You try to look like upright people outwardly, but inside your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness.
