The Pharisees exhibited these characteristics of bogus religion: 1. Finding fault with other people but no faults in themselves. 2. More concern to maintain their own reputation than to meet the needs of others. 3. Refusal to acknowledge personal inconsistency.
How do we react to being shown that we are sinners?
much needed today This sermon is greatly needed in our day - many of us are guilty of the very things spoken of in this message - being Pharisees - looking for faults in OTHERS and NOT looking at our own selves! Bless the Lord for directing me to this timely message, all the elect of God will benefit greatly from hearing this.
There is so much pride in today's Christians, so much unrepentant sin. No wonder we have little to no affect on the world around us.
