    The danger of the Pharisee tendency today

    Matthew 23 Keeping Up Appearances Introduction We all know Hyacinth Bucket from the television sitcom ‘Keeping up Appearances’. Now although it may not be politically correct to make judgements about people, we all know that we all do it. And we can all make a judgement about the character. For more

  • The Pharisee In Me

    Contributed by Clay Gentry on Sep 3, 2013
    based on 3 ratings

    There's a Pharisee in me just waiting to come out.

    As I continue to grow and understand the gospel of Jesus Christ and learn more of God’s grace, I have become more conscious of a struggle that rages within me. It’s a struggle between the man I so desperately want to be and the man I have the tendency to be. I struggle, because I know more

    based on 24 ratings

    Is our righteousness any better than the Pharisees?

    MATT.5:17-22 “LET’S COMPARE OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS” A) These words were spoken by the Savior, and they are strong, searching words of Jesus! * The word except is used only five times by our Savior in this sense and means: unless, if not! * Matt.18:3 “Except ye be converted, and become as little more

  • Jesus Does The Pharisees Dishes Series

    Contributed by Marc Bertrand on Nov 5, 2004
    based on 19 ratings

    The burden of righteousness that God lays on us is not cumbersome, but freeing, for it opens the door to restoring us to the places God created us for.

    Introduction: I want to begin today by taking you back in time 2000 years ago to the common scene at the table of any Jewish Scribe or Pharisee. You will notice that here on the table are a few seemingly simple items, a jug of water and a small wash basin, but to the Pharisees, these items made more

  • The Pharisee And The Tax Collector Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Jun 26, 2015
    based on 2 ratings

    The parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector shows us two different approaches to God.

    Scripture When someone comes to the Session in order to be interviewed for communicant membership, we always ask the following two questions, which we have borrowed from Dr. D. James Kennedy and Evangelism Explosion. First, we ask, “Suppose you were to die today, are you sure that you would more

  • So, You Think You're Not A Pharisee?

    Contributed by Dan Funk on Aug 28, 2014

    Christ directed the Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican Praying in the Temple to those who trusted in their own righteousness. We are more prone to trust in our own righteousness than we might think. This self-trust can keep us from being merciful.

    Over the years, we have all heard preachers address the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican praying in the Temple. “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast more

  • Some Similarities Between Pharisees & Reactionaries

    Contributed by Paul Fritz on Oct 17, 2000
    based on 8 ratings

    People of good judgment seldom rely merely on their own insights - but the Pharisees nevertheless insisted.

    People of good judgment seldom rely merely on their own insights - but the Pharisees nevertheless insisted. Like the Pharisees during the times of Jesus, the reactionaries of today like to design harsh doctrinal codes that stress a strict avoidance of worldly customs. They enjoy being associated more

  • Grace Alone Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Oct 5, 2017
    based on 5 ratings

    Luke 18:9-14 shows us that God's grace alone saves sinners.

    Scripture During this fall, we are focusing our attention on the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation began when an Augustinian monk named Martin Luther nailed Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg. His propositions sparked a debate that more

  • Two Revealing Prayers Series

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 28, 2022
    based on 2 ratings

    This passage records two prayers, in which are shown two kinds of hearts, whose contrast is not only seen in the way they make their requests, but also in the way they approach God. Some people trust in themselves; others trust in God.

    This evening’s sermon is entitled “Two Revealing Prayers,” and it’s taken from what is commonly called “The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector.” Darrell Bock, in The NIV Application Commentary, says, “This parable is really the parable of the two prayers. In those prayers appear two more

  • How To Separate Ourselves From The Sins Of The Pharisees

    Contributed by Paul Fritz on Jul 21, 2004
    based on 25 ratings

    Jesus gives us a challenge He gave about the Pharisees. He wants us to show mercy and love to those who need salvation, not just go through the motions of our own religious beliefs

    How to Separate Ourselves From the Sins of the Pharisees Jesus said to them, "Be careful and on your guard against the leaven (teaching, corruption, hypocrisy) of the Pharisees and Saducees." (Matthew 16:6) Jesus said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves in the eyes of men. But God more

  • How To Be Right With God

    Contributed by John Hamby on Jul 16, 2018

    Two men went to the Temple to pray. One is a religious leader. The other is a dishonest, man who has no qualms about ripping people off for his one advantage. Which of these two do you think is going to leave in a right relationship with God!

    “How To Be Right With God.” The Parable of The Pharisee and the Publican” Luke 18:9-14 Two men went to the Temple to pray. One is a regular; in more

  • Don't Want To Be A Pharisee Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Oct 4, 2014
    based on 44 ratings

    Jesus despised the Pharisees. But why? These guys were simply trying to please God by honoring His rules. What was it about them that angered God so much and how do we avoid becoming like them?

    About the worst thing you can call somebody in Church is to say they are a “Pharisee”. The Pharisees were THE “bad guys” in scripture and seemed to always be the main group that Jesus singled out as examples of who His followers were NOT to be like. I don’t want to be more
