Religious hypocrisy
Cause What God wants is not to make our selves become holy in other people` sight , and do not try to make other people become fear to God. What Jesus wants is to make all the people become His belonging. As long as we search the Lord, reading His holy bibble every days, God will teach us, and of course we have to open our hearts for His teaching to make Him can work in us, and not live to show performance to other human that we are holy man. Actually none of us is right in the present of the Lord, so every days we have ask His forgiveness.

Because there is only ONE God, one truth to honor. Pretense and hypocrisy is misusing the Kingdom of Heaven for self-serving, earthly, evil desires.

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
Jesus was offended because, althuogh some people of His time believed in Jesus, they failed to fully realize that he WAS the Son of God. They continued to live their sinful lives, all the while telling others how to live theirs. By attending to their own selfish needs, and pretending to live righteous lives, they could not see that they were not accepting God into their lives fully.

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
Hi dear friends, Jesus was offensive to the religious hypocrisy b`se they never wanted to tell people the truth yet they knew it. Religious people were on the side of the rulers who killed Jesus most of all they pretended to be doing God`s will by putting on white garments yet on their inside they are wolves who look for what to scrub or snatch and thx be to God that Jesus had the spirit of descernment and with this he was able to read their hearts and see how evil they were. These are people who never wanted to someone doing the will of God or walking in Light the tried to fight it but being the fact that God is all in all he was able to prove his magenifiency when he resuracted Jesus from the dead b`se when they killed him they thought that marked the end yet it was starting the Gospel throughout the whole world and being the fact that what the devil meant for bad God turns it into good for our own benefit.

Religious hypocrisy is offensive to Jesus because of the harm it does to others who have not much knowledge of scriptures.Hence the activities of the hypocrites may mis-lead such people to miss the kingdom.The hypocrites were also causing much suffering and hardships to others because of their evil ways.

Why is religious hypocrisy so offensive to Jesus?
The religious hypocrisy were so offensive to Jesus because they seated on the law of Moses and thougt that by their works, they can receive salvation. It might be that they did not know that salvation is through the grace of God ''Ethesians 2 Vs 8-10''.They bind themselves with numerous sins and long prayers in public and market places in order to be seen by men. They also exalted themselves and shut up the kingdom of God against the people of God not knowing that salvation is for all. Jesus `s mission was to save all mankind and this is why He was aginst the acts of hypocrisy ''John 3 Vs 16''. They were unreghteous and unfaithfull in giving tithes thereby offering evil and false tesmonies about themselves. The religious hypocrisy blindguided sinners so that they ''siners'' should not know the truth about the word of God. The hypocrisy killed the prophets sent by God so that men should salute and call the Rabbi. We as brothers and sister, we should know that God will bless us if we humble ourselves and come to God in the name of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. Amen!

Because GOD is not a thing. God is everything on Heaven as in earth. You do not find him on an specific thing ''gold, temple, image'' you see him when you see inside your spirit, and when this happens you know he is everything there is and ever will be.

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!'"
