Because they did not follow the Ten Commandments. The were unable to see the good Of Jesus and his works.

Why did Jesus call the Pharisees blind? What were they unable to see?
The Pharisees devotion to their own man-made rules and their religious posturing was offensive to our Lord. They claimed to know God and judged others harshly in His name, but they didn`t have Him in their hearts and they weren`t living a Godly life. We have many of these hypocrites in our society today and their behavior often has a negative effect on a true Christian`s image and credibility.

He called them blind because they were unable to see what blessings God could store uopn them and their families. They wanted to live their lives the way they wanted to and not God`s way.

Why did Jesus call the Pharisees blind? What were they unable to see?
The Pharisees were not able to see the difference between things of man and that of God. The traditions and things that the Pharisees followed were man-made, self-made. The Pharisees were following traditions and speaking of God and referring to God, but they did not follow God and did not honor the word of God and they did not wholeheartedly know God.

Why did Jesus call the Pharisees blind? What were they unable to see?
The Pharisees were unable to see the commandments of God and wanted to make the man made laws the doctrines of life. Jesus called them blind of such tendancy of making their own rules and not the rules of the Father in Heaven.

They are called blind because they had not seen the truth. They were blinded by their tradition and doctrine made by men. By the traditions of the eldels, not only the word of God was perverted, but his worship also was greatly corrupted.

that they were wrong b/c it is not what goes in ur body that is defies God, he ants u to take care of yourself but what is most important is what you say or do not say..when u say something terrible it is the worst way to defie God b/c he does not want us to be like that and especially not toward him who loves us so much and we should love him and show him we do b/c we owe him so much.

Why did Jesus call the Pharisees blind? What were they unable to see?
They dont see that th real cleansiness with the capital C is the one of the heart. The intentions. And not just the formal obeyance to the formal directives that God gives. They care for the appearance but neglect the substance of the teachings. They cleanse the outward side of the vessel and make it shine for everyone to see and think tha they are good, but the inside is very likely filthy and that filth that gradually builds up blinds them and makes it difficult to walk in Jesus footsteps.

Jesus called the Pharisees blind, because they could not see that merely washing your hands would not make you clean. The body being clean, will not bring you salvation; but, cleanse your heart ''soul'', and therein lies your salvation. The Pharisees were led by tradition, which was man`s laws, not God`s laws.

Clean and Unclean

Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem, saying, "Why do your disciples disobey the tradition of the elders? For they don't wash their hands when they eat bread."
He answered them, "Why do you also disobey the commandment of God because of your tradition? For God commanded, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him be put to death.' But you say, 'Whoever may tell his father or his mother, "Whatever help you might otherwise have gotten from me is a gift devoted to God," he shall not honor his father or mother.' You have made the commandment of God void because of your tradition. You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
'These people draw near to me with their mouth,
and honor me with their lips;
but their heart is far from me.
And in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrine rules made by men.'"
He summoned the multitude, and said to them, "Hear, and understand. That which enters into the mouth doesn't defile the man; but that which proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man."
Then the disciples came, and said to him, "Do you know that the Pharisees were offended, when they heard this saying?"
But he answered, "Every plant which my heavenly Father didn't plant will be uprooted. Leave them alone. They are blind guides of the blind. If the blind guide the blind, both will fall into a pit."
Peter answered him, "Explain the parable to us."
So Jesus said, "Do you also still not understand? Don't you understand that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the belly, and then out of the body? But the things which proceed out of the mouth come out of the heart, and they defile the man. For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual sins, thefts, false testimony, and blasphemies. These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands doesn't defile the man."
