  3. 3. You Might Be A Pharisee… • You’re glad you’re better than other people
  4. 4. Phil. 2:1-11 - 1Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, 2fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 5Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,
  5. 5. Phil. 2:1-11 - 7but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
  6. 6. Eph. 2:8-9 - 8For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9not of works, lest anyone should boast.

  8. 8. You Might Be A Pharisee… • You re glad ou re etter than other people • You glory more in appearance than in the heart
  9. 9. Matt. 6:1-7 - 1 Take heed that ou do ot do our charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 3But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.
  10. 10. Matt. 6:1-7 - 5 A d he ou pra , ou shall ot e like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.
  11. 11. Matt. 6:16-18 - 16 Moreo er, he ou fast, do ot be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
  12. 12. Matt. 23:5-7 - 5But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. 6They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, 7greetings in the marketplaces, and to e alled e , ‘a i, ‘a i.
  13. 13. Matt. 23:23-24 - 23 Woe to ou, s ri es a d Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. 24Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!

  15. 15. You Might Be A Pharisee… • You re glad ou re etter than other people • You glory more in appearance than in the heart • You are quick to judge others but blind to your own faults
  16. 16. Matt. 7:1-5 - 1 Judge ot, that ou e ot judged. 2For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3And why do you look at the spe k i our rother s e e, ut do ot o sider the plank in your own eye? 4Or how can you say to our rother, Let e re o e the spe k fro our e e ; a d look, a pla k is in your own eye? 5Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the spe k fro our rother s e e.
  17. 17. Rom. 2:1-3 - 1Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. 2But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. 3And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?

  21. 21. Luke 18:9-14 - 14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he ho hu les hi self ill e e alted.
  22. 22. 1 John 1:8-9 - 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

For they do not wash their hands when the eat read. 3He answered and said to them, Wh do ou also tra sgress the o a d e t of God because of your tradition? 4For God o a ded, sa i g, Ho or our father a d our other ; a d, He ho urses father or other, let hi e put to death. 5But ou sa , Whoe er sa s to his father or other, Whate er profit ou ight have received from me is a gift to God —
  26. 26. Matt. 15:1-9 - 6then he need not honor his father or other. Thus ou ha e ade the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. 7Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 8 These people dra ear to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. 9And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the o a d e ts of e .
  27. 27. 2 John 9 - 9Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.

Therefore what God has joined together, let ot a separate. 7The said to Hi , Wh then did Moses command to give a certificate of di or e, a d to put her a a ?
  31. 31. Matt. 19:3-9 - 8He said to the , Moses, e ause of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her ho is di or ed o its adulter .
