Title: The Woes- Part 3 Leading People Away
Speaker: Pastor George Gracie
Scripture: Matthew 23:23-36
In Mathew 23 Jesus condemns the scribes and Pharisees for their religion. Although they practiced outward forms of religion, Jesus accuses them of neglecting the more important things: justice and mercy and faithfulness. They were more concerned about outward conformance to religious tradition then with inward transformation and regeneration. It is this type of hypocrisy that Jesus condemns and lead others away from Christ.
