Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 39 And Jesus said, "I have come into the world for judgment, that the blind might see; and that those who see might be made blind."2 [He came into the world to give sight to the spiritually blind and to make blind those who think they can see, (those in darkness with no light who think they are righteous, puffed up on their fleshly mind's knowledge of the scriptures; but not taught directly and perfected by the Spirit of God). From the Word of the Lord within: "I work with the blind; but if you think you can see, and you are not with me in heaven, I will make you a laughingstock."]

 41 Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains."3 [Christendom today is exactly like the Pharisees in this verse. Christendom says: "We have a free pass to heaven. Our sins, past, present, and future are paid for by Jesus. We are righteous believers in Jesus, we can see and understand, we have need of nothing more." But Jesus said to church-going, Christian believers in Laodicea: you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. Rev 3:17-19.]
