UNDERSTANDING & APPLYING THE PRINCIPLES OF DOCTRINAL EMPHASIS & JESUS’ SEVEN WOES AGAINST THE PHARISEES_CLASS COPY.pdf

One of the things that breed false doctrine in a church community is the practice of applying injunctions and principles found in the Bible discriminatorily.   In our last class, we examined how to take a stand between TRUTH and LIES. What if a teaching or practice is not “wrong” per se, but the “weight of emphasis” we place on it becomes the problem?   This week, we shall be examining the “weight” (or emphasis) certain individuals and groups choose to place on some issues over others. This preferential application of God’s word was a major fault Jesus found in the Pharisees, who were supposed to be the “keepers of the law”. In Sports that use targets; archery, dart-throwing and shooting, participants learn about and practice the act of aiming accurately as they focus on hitting the very centre of the target called the “bull’s eye”.   THE RULE OF PLAY: The closer your hit is to the very centre of the target, the more points you score. Wisdom demands that you aim at the centre of the target. No one aims at the fringes and expects to win.   With the above understanding, we shall now implore this learning in understanding how doctrinal placements and emphasis work in the Christian faith. Read Mal 2:8-9 8 But you have turned from the way and by your teaching have caused many to stumble; you have violated the covenant with Levi," says the Lord Almighty. 9 "So I have caused you to be despised and humiliated before all the people, because you have not followed my ways but have shown partiality in matters of the law." NIV Let’s Define these Three Domains:   a. THE “CORE/ESSENTIAL” DOMAIN This domain contains aspects of our Christian faith that are absolutely necessary; crucial; vital; indispensable; requisite; of the utmost importance; of the essence; critical; imperative; mandatory; compulsory; obligatory; urgent; burning; acute; indispensable; paramount; high-priority; fundamental; and carries life-and-death consequences.   We cannot do without those things that fall inside the CORE/ESSENTIAL aspects of the doctrinal target.   By nature, items in this domain are fewer than other domains. Let’s Define these Three Domains:   a.

You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. POINT: Their teachings make it difficult for sincere seekers of God to enter the kingdom, even as the Pharisees are not in themselves. 15 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are. POINT: They only make disciples after themselves, not disciples of Jesus.
  • 10. 16 "Woe to you, blind guides! You say, 'If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound by his oath.' 17 You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? 18 You also say, 'If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gift on it, he is bound by his oath.' 19 You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? 20 Therefore, he who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. 21 And he who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. 22 And he who swears by heaven swears by God's throne and by the one who sits on it. POINT: They undermine the severity of certain laws, based on their preference as informed by their ignorance.
  • 11. 23 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices — mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law — justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. POINT: They pick and choose. Jesus wants us to obey everything. They go for the ones that’ll fetch them financial prosperity but fail to serve people. 25 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean. POINT: Their focus is mainly outward. They are pretentious. They judge only by outward appearance. They don’t go after sin, but patronize those who live double standard lives.
  • 12. 27 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but, on the inside, you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. POINT: Again, they are all about religious showmanship. They live and encourage those who live double lives. They don’t address sin. They’re partial in dealing with sin in their congregation.
  • 13. D. CONCLUSION Luke 7:15-29 15 "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. 21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23 Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
  • 14. 24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash." 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEEK FOR THE CONCLUSION OF THIS FIVE WEEKS JOURNEY!
