Matt 23:23-25;"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.
v24 "You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
v25 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.
We are presently in a study of satan's cosmic that is a system of demonic thinking that has become the basis of the thinking of the entire human race since the fall in the Garden of Eden separated from God in the darkness of spiritual death that is comprised of the lies and deceit of arrogance. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
Last time we noted some of the characteristics of arrogant believers including listening to the teaching of Bible doctrine with preconceived ideas and distorting the acquisition or perception of doctrine.
Arrogance uses epignosis doctrine that has been retained to justify and serve themselves rather than objectively allowing themselves to be humbled by the doctrine and following the lead of doctrine.
We noted that the psychopathic thinking that results from the believer pulling the pin of the arrogance grenade explains why believers become involved in every kind of self-destructive addiction as well as, deviant, and criminal activity.
This is why Christians are sinful, abnormal and hypocritical, it is why they perform acts of human good and evil, and it is why Christians are involved with moral and immoral degeneracy.
It is also why Christians gossip, malign, judge, become bitter, retaliate, seek revenge, and hate and attempt to destroy other Christians.
These concepts are summarized in 1Tim 6:3-4; "If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not concur with sound doctrine, the doctrines from our Lord Jesus Christ, even the doctrines pertaining to godliness (life inside God's spiritual power system),
v4 he is arrogant, understanding nothing; furthermore, he has a morbid obsession about controversies and verbal conflicts, from which originate envy, discord, slander, and evil speculations.
The communication of different doctrine can occur in two ways. Some polarize toward moral degeneracy and others polarize toward immoral degeneracy.
This polarization results in fragmentation, where one group criticizes and the other reacts.
The "doctrines pertaining to life inside God's spiritual power system" are the principles and mechanics of the protocol plan of God for the Church Age and the execution of the protocol plan through post- salvation renovation of the thinking from metabolized Bible doctrine.
These doctrines include information related to the portfolio of invisible assets prepared for us in eternity past by God the Father and the ten problem solving devices of the protocol plan of God.
Unity is based on grace and doctrinal orientation that is established on the basis of a clear understanding of God's grace policy for salvation and the spiritual life that are based exclusively on grace and faith alone in Jesus Christ.
Those who are functioning in opposition from polarized arrogance from polarized fragmentation have a morbid obsession about controversial questions, disputes about words, from which come envy, strife, abusive language and evil speculations.
Judgment arrogance is the function of self-righteous legalistic believers who seek to impose their false standards on others, and when that fails they judge and maligning those who do not accept their false standards that are established on the basis of their evil false speculations.
Some of the false evil speculations and judging that come from this polarization are described in Rom 14:8-10,13-17;
v8 For if we live, we live for the Lord; if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.
v9 For this purpose, Christ died and lived, that He might be Lord both of the dead and the living.
v10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we shall all stand before the Judgment Seat of God.
v13 Therefore, stop judging each other, but instead determine not to put an obstacle (a stumbling block) in a brother's way."
