Can you recognize the Pharisees among you?
Take a good look around. Do they fit the following descriptions?
Love seats of honor
Shamelessly collect tithes
Pray endless long empty prayers
Here is what Jesus says about them:
Jesus also taught: “Beware of these teachers of religious law! For they like to parade around in flowing robes and receive respectful greetings as they walk in the marketplaces. And how they love the seats of honor in the synagogues and the head table at banquets. Yet they shamelessly cheat widows out of their property and then pretend to be pious by making long prayers in public. Because of this, they will be more severely punished.”
