Preached on Sunday the 30th of July, 2023.
The Pharisees were exact and precise in their worship of God. The very picture of religious piety. Yet, whilst they were careful to keep each ceremonial detail, they were the very ones who hated and murdered the Lord Jesus. They had mere religion on the outside, but inwardly, lived in total opposition to the true living God. This is frighteningly true of many today who worship God hypocritically with mere religion but no inward love for him. Is this so with you?
