By Fed Up With Religion
You all need to
re-read the character Jesus’ words putting yourselves in the place of
the Scribes and Pharisees. You are the modern day version after all.
He may just be talking about you and to you... Let’s look at just a few of Jesus’ words and some observations.
Beware of false prophets which come to you in sheep’s clothing (You
have become false prophets, making and clinging to your “prophesies”.)
23:2 Saying; The scribes and Pharisees sit in Moses seat: (You now sit
in Moses seat, whether you’re aware of it or not. You make up the
doctrines. What you will and won’t “believe”.)
2 Cor 3:15 But
even unto this day when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
(Understand what you’re reading if you’re going to sit in his
seat...please... it’s mythological allegory.)
Matt 23: 4: For
they bind heavy burdens on people and grievous to be borne, and lay them
on men’s shoulders. (You now bind the heavy burdens of fear and guilt
on people’s shoulders, and your own.)
Vs 5 But all their works
they do to be seen. (You do everything to be seen from an outward
appearance, going to church, preaching, singing hymns, prayers etc.)
13 But 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. (Big clue in this
verse as to the location of the Kingdom...)
Mark 4:11 And he said
unto them, unto you it is given to know the MYSTERY of the kingdom of
God: but, UNTO ALL THEM THAT ARE WITHOUT, ALL THESE THINGS ARE DONE IN
Vs 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive: and hearing they may hear, and not understand...
13 And he said unto them, know ye not this parable? And how then will
ye know all parables? (Do you really understand what is being said
1 Cor 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a MYSTERY,
even the HIDDEN wisdom... (This is a key statement as to the nature of
the book itself, you have completely missed it.)
And last but not
least; The MYSTERY OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN that you shut up against
men, given unto all of us, laid out bare and answered by the character
Matt 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God...
A very specific direction... and you are within your rights to ask, where is it? How do we find it? Where do we look?
He tells you... if you would only receive it...but you’re blinded like the Scribes and Pharisees.
17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of
God should come, he answered them and said, “THE KINGDOM OF GOD COMETH
NOT WITH OBSERVATION:”
Vs 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! Or, lo there! For behold the “KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU!”
Vs 23 And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: “GO NOT AFTER THEM, NOR FOLLOW THEM.”
That’s a pretty specific answer...
Why should anyone follow any Religion? When you don’t understand what you’re reading... Jesus and the bibles words, not mine...
Mark 7:7 “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
For those that understand, no explanation is necessary, for those who do not, no explanation is possible.
