Luke 6:39-42

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 39 Then he spoke a parable to them, "Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into a ditch? [How do we know who is blind? The next verses tells us that a blind guide is someone who has not been perfected; who therefore cannot see to take the spec out of his brother's eye, and evil comes from his mouth. From the Word of the Lord within: "There are millions of blind guide preachers. They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. Outside the faith, they are teaching an equilibrium between good and evil."]

 40 The disciple is not above his master, but everyone who is perfect [purified, restored to the spiritual image of God, specifically authorized, and perfected] will be like his master. [To preach or teach with authorization, your evil heart must first be cleansed, purified, and perfected so you can hear from God every word to be spoken and see every deed to be done. If you are following an unperfected minister, you have been led into the ditch. Unperfected ministers seek their own glory and your money. Jesus told us to leave the unperfected, thus blind guides, which blindness he further discusses in the next verses.]

 41 Why do you look at the spec that is in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the log that is in your own eye? [If you haven't been perfected, you are a blind guide and unauthorized to teach or preach.]

 42 Or how can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take out the spec that is in your eye,' when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, [by getting perfect like the master] and then you will see clearly to remove the spec that is in your brother's eye.5

 22 Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;

 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

 24 And put on the newly created nature [of Christ], which is created in God's image of true righteousness and holiness.7

Colossians 3:10

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 And have [purposed to] put on the new man, who is renewed in knowledge after the image of him who created him, [To put on the new man is to have put off the old man with the body of sins and be renewed into the spiritual image of God, which man lost when Adam fell in disobedience to God. From the Word of the Lord within: "You are raised to a new life, not just an imitation; He is one with us and ever-present."]
