Because they were after the praise of men and not of God. Especialy as teachers as exampels that people would follow.

Jesus came to reveal the truth, religious hypocrisy serves as a stumbling block to the genuine people.it blinds peoplefrom knowning the truth because the people that are preaching do not do what theyb preach making it look as what they preach is not real or genuine.

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
He told the scribes and pharisees, woe to you, hypocrites! and he stated the awful things they did devouring widows houses, and as a pretense, made long prayers, and I think Jesus was really offended how they pretended to be of God and actually didn`t know God and hindered others from entering in to know God...they were doing a serious thing against God and keeping people from coming to God..

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
Well all Show and No Go! comes to mind. The Pharisees look the part and dress the part but don`t act the part. In other words they look like religious leaders who act they knew the word of God and think they are practicing the word of God but did not do the will of God - Justice, Mercy and Faith. The scribes and pharisees are hypocrites for exalting themselves instead of the people around them who are humble, meek and poor. Seven woes to you, scribes and pharisees, hypocrites that`s a whole lot of Woes. Jesus said For I tell you, you will not see me from now on, until you say, Blessed is he who comes in name of the Lord! Thank You! Jesus that I am your humble servent.

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
Jesus took offensive on religious hypocrisy because He knows that what they teach is not what God had directed them to do. Many of them will say God sent them when God did not sent them. They do this to enrich themselves and thereby embarrass God and Jesus through their teaches and worshipping. They used religious ''by creating ambiguous churches in the mountain, riverside etc'' to dupe an innocent people through their fake micraclous deed. Jesus said people like darkness because the work of their hands are dark.

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
Religious hypocrisy forfeits of God's reward. In Matthew 6: 1 ''6: 2-6 -18'' it was stated beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. Such behavior is incompatible with saving faith. In John 5:44 it was stated How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? Also in John 12:42-43 the word said nevertheless, many even of the authorities believed in him, but for fear of the Pharisees they did not confess it, so that they would not be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God. Religious hypocrisy is a form of pride, which brings God's opposition and forfeits his grace in 1 Peter 5:5 ''cf James 4:6'' God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.

Religious hypocrisy is offensive to Jesus because he is the true God, and no one should deceive him.

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
religious hyocrisy is so offensive to Jesus because it is only to please the eyes of the people around rather than the Lord. Meaning when the hypocrites are alone, they do weaked things forgeting that God sees, and whenever they do good it is for applauding from the people seeing and not for the sake of God. thank you!

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
Jesus is so offensive to them because they lead people to do evils, they don`t teach them the way of God, rather the way of satan, encourage stealing, hatred, backbiting, lover of pleasure, so proud, love to be in the high places, they pretended to serve God while inwardly they not, and Jesus the all knowing, the prince of peace, the King of kings, and LORD and lords, who is above all principality and power know what they are.

Seven Woes

Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to his disciples, saying, "The scribes and the Pharisees sat on Moses' seat. All things therefore whatever they tell you to observe, observe and do, but don't do their works; for they say, and don't do. For they bind heavy burdens that are grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not lift a finger to help them. But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad, enlarge the fringes of their garments, and love the place of honor at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, the salutations in the marketplaces, and to be called 'Rabbi, Rabbi' by men. But don't you be called 'Rabbi,' for one is your teacher, the Christ, and all of you are brothers. Call no man on the earth your father, for one is your Father, he who is in heaven. Neither be called masters, for one is your master, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows' houses, and as a pretense you make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men; for you don't enter in yourselves, neither do you allow those who are entering in to enter. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel around by sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much of a son of Gehenna as yourselves.
"Woe to you, you blind guides, who say, 'Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obligated.' You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifies the gold? 'Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obligated?' You blind fools! For which is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifies the gift? He therefore who swears by the altar, swears by it, and by everything on it. He who swears by the temple, swears by it, and by him who was living in it. He who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God, and by him who sits on it.
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cumin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy, and faith. But you ought to have done these, and not to have left the other undone. You blind guides, who strain out a gnat, and swallow a camel!
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and unrighteousness. You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the platter, that the outside of it may become clean also.
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitened tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but inwardly are full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and decorate the tombs of the righteous, and say, 'If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we wouldn't have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.' Therefore you testify to yourselves that you are children of those who killed the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. You serpents, you offspring of vipers, how will you escape the judgment of Gehenna? Therefore, behold, I send to you prophets, wise men, and scribes. Some of them you will kill and crucify; and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city; that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah, whom you killed between the sanctuary and the altar. Most certainly I tell you, all these things will come upon this generation.
"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets, and stones those who are sent to her! How often I would have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you would not! Behold, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me from now on, until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!'"
