Woe to the Scribes and Pharisess!

Matthew 23:2-39

2 The Scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid of you observe, that observe and do; but DO NOT ye after their works, for they say, and so not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulder; they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers! But all their works they do for to be seen of men; they make broad their phylacteries(inscribed scripture passages), and enlarge the borders of their garments.

6 and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seat in the synagogues.

7 and greeting in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

8 but be not ye called Rabbi, for one is your Master, even Christ and all ye are brethren.

11 but he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

13 Woe  unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men, for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

14 Woe, unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widow’s houses, and for a pretense make long prayer, therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte(a new convert to a religion, belief, party), and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides which say, whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing, but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

17 Ye fools and blind, for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

25 Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but, within they are full of extortion and excess.

28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets and wise men and scribes and some of them ye shall kill and crucify, and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city.

35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from  the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias….

37  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, those that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee..

38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate

39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

  1. SH
    When the ‘teachers’ ‘pharises’ are corrupt and have their OWN agenda at heart and not the agenda of God, and teach lies and enforce lies, that is where things have gotten off track. Those taught the lies and sanctified in the lies are now in power and control. It is they and their agenda of Lucifer and his fallen ones, that are the enemies to man and our Father in Heaven.

  2. I am totally against organized religion. I am for the Bible and for instruction in it that is more or less non-denominational. I took a course in the Old Testament in college. I try to live by the commandments. Neither Jesus nor Buddha wanted large institutions to come between the faithful and their teachings. Buddha again and again excoriated his followers who wanted to build stupas to honor him. Our daily to do list should not have any more than 10 items on it.

  3. That is modern day Churchinaity and Synogogues.
    I entertain, When I entertained in NYC, I was in every synagogue you can shake a stick at and many Catholic Churches, they are houses of satan, imo.

      Satan is everywhere and has corrupted and influenced religion since its conception. He knows his works are soon to come to an end and that once and for all, our Father in Heaven, will bring justice and goodness back into the world.
