It Was the Hypocritical Pharisees That Jesus Condemned Most Severely

Advisory: The editorial board of HNewsWire adopted the official policy to bypass many social media platforms. Some of these include: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Parler, and YouTube. We believe these companies are responsible for many of the spiritual ills our world faces today. In some cases, however, we have allowed our guest contributors to include content from their YouTube channel while we search for alternatives.

‘No man taketh it from you.’ Of course, that refers primarily to the opposition and actual hostility of the persecuting world, which that handful of frightened men were very soon to face; and our Lord assures them here that, whatsoever the power of the devil working through the world may be able to filch away from them, it cannot filch away the joy that He gives. But we may extend the meaning beyond that reference…

In the celestial battle between good and evil, these people are traitors to their own side.  They claim to be following Christ but every with footstep they walk a few paces behind the devil.  The devil likes to operate with any sinner but, for the devil, a traitor is the most useful sinner of all.  A man who pretends to be god-fearing but lives a life of self-gratification is a hypocrite and it is through such people that the devil does his best work.  It was the hypocritical Pharisees that Jesus condemned most severely, and it was a traitor, not an enemy, who used a kiss (the sign of love) to betray the Lord Jesus Christ into the hands of those who killed him.

Yet it is still worse.  These people who call themselves Christians do all this evil for the lowest and most detestable cause of all:–  Like Judas before them, they do it for the love of money.  They live their dishonest lives in order to lay their hands on those coins that God described as the root of many evils.  It would be better for them if they stopped calling themselves Christians for then at least they would be condemned only as ordinary sinners and not as traitorous hypocrites.

In their greed for dishonest gain and “comfortable” living and “easy” life, they ignore all that God said about “living loose” to the world that is passing away.  When God tells them that they should not store-up treasure on earth or put their trust in worldly wealth they shut their ears and pretend they haven’t heard.  When the apostle James tells them that the rich should weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon them they turn up the volume of the Hi-fi stereo music system and pretend that they are among the poor.

These so-called Christians despise authority and break any law that inconveniences them if they think they can avoid getting caught.  In doing this they disobey God who wrote that anyone who disobeys the ruling authority is disobeying God because those authorities were instigated by God to do his will.

What is the difference between these so-called Christians and a common thief?  It is simply this:  The thief at least acknowledges his sin because of he thanks God that he didn’t get caught.  But these so-called disciples of Christ thank God for the opportunity to do wrong and for the loot that they have gathered.  In this they prove themselves to be not only dishonest but also stupid because nobody can insult the living God and expect to go unpunished.  As their possessions increase they praise God for his goodness but in their blind ignorance they have forgotten that God, in His mercy sends, sunshine and rain to good people and to bad ones alike.  In the end, those same possessions that they thanked God for will testify against them; those possessions will be the proof of their deceit and dishonesty and will be the evidence that secures their conviction in the heavenly court.

When they have told so many lies that they cannot even remember what they have said, then their own mouths trap them.  Because they fear men more than they fear God they become ensnared by evil men who blackmail them.  When you have walked the wrong road and got into trouble the only way out is to go back.  But these foolish liars refuse to go back, they refuse to repent.  In their stubborn and stupid pride, they just keep mouthing falsity and they continue with their dishonesty.  They do not understand that God opposes the proud.  They do not understand that God is set against them because of their deceit.

When their consciences accuse them they claim that it must be because of the stress in their lives or because they are not eating properly.  Even when their sleep is disturbed, even when there is no peace in their hearts, even when their relationships are weak and useless and full of conflict they still do not repent.  Instead, they count the possessions that they acquired through their dishonest ways and say “we are making good progress and tomorrow we shall be richer than we are today”.  Oh, stupid liars!  They have not learned that wealth cannot save them in the day of God’s wrath.  They have not understood that when they acquire more goods through deceit they are only acquiring more witnesses that will testify against their dishonest character.  In the day of judgment, even the bricks of their houses will speak-out to condemn them.

All dishonesty is sin.  It cannot be condoned; it cannot be justified; it cannot be excused:  It can only be repented of.  Dishonesty is not a “little” sin that God will overlook.  There are no “little” sins.  But more than this, God often ranks dishonesty as the first sin and honesty as the greatest virtue.

When Isaiah is explaining what sins have caused the face of God to be turned away from the people, he mentions bloodshed only once but dishonesty three times.  From this, we learn that dishonesty is a serious offense in the sight of God and that it separates people from God.  God does not pay attention to their prayers because their mouths are so full of sin.

To accuse a zealous Christian of “forcing his or her beliefs” unto other people is simply the Devil’s lie. We have every right to speak out with contempt against contemptible things. I do NOT endorse deliberately being unkind to anyone, but unrepentant sinners will nonetheless be offended when we speak out against wickednesses. We should attack the sin, never the sinner. Though the wicked will claim the two are inseparable, there is indeed a great difference. God HATES sin, but not people. No one hates sin any more than God, yet no one loves sinners as much as God. We must follow Christ’s example by trying to do the same.

The Birth Pains Are Growing Stronger….

One of the signs of ruling class collapse is when they can no longer enforce the rules that maintain them as a ruling class. When the Romans started making exceptions to republican governance, it was a matter of time before someone simply decided the rules no longer applied to them. Perhaps the robot historians will consider Obama our Marius or Sulla. Maybe that person is in the near future. Either way, the rule of law is over and what comes next is the rule of men.

“Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.” as in Nancy Pelosi (D-San Fran-feces)

Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man.

Julian Assange: The CIA director is waging war on truth-tellers like WikiLeaks By Julian Assange Opinions April 25 at 7:39 PM Julian Assange is editor of WikiLeaks. Mike Pompeo, in his first speech as director of the CIA, chose to declare war on free speech rather than on the United States’ actual adversaries.
