Mark 2:16-17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eating with tax collectors and sinners, they said to his disciples, "How is it that he eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?"

 17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, "Those who are whole have no need of a physician, but those who are sick, do. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."2 [Today's so-called Christians think they are righteous because they "believe in Jesus" or have been water baptized; in so doing, Christianity has made a mockery of the Lord's highest priority command in the New Testament: "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness," Mat 6:33. When contemplating those who think they have the righteousness of Christ because they believe that Jesus is the son of God, the Word of the Lord within said: "They throw the word 'righteousness' around without any understanding of what it means. They are filthy dreamers." All are filthy because their hearts are defiled with all manner of sins they still commit with disregard to the Lord's many warnings and the Bible's very clear requirements, qualifying conditions, and exclusions of salvation; so they are dreaming that they are righteous. There is an imputed righteousness that comes with the measure of faith received with the fruit of the Spirit, which is rewarded to those who have crucified their selfish, evil spirit on the inward cross of self-denial, but not before. Believing in Jesus is not the faith that imputes righteousness; see Footnote 2 of Romans 3 for the detail of imputed righteousness.]

 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to his disciples, "Why does your Master eat with tax collectors and sinners?"

 12 But when Jesus heard that, he said to them, "Those who are well do not need a physician, but those who are sick.

 13 But go and learn what this means, 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

 29 Then Levi made him a feast in his own house; and there was a great company of tax collectors and others who sat down with them.

 30 But the scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?"

 31 And Jesus answered them, "Those who are well do not need a physician, but those who are sick.

 32 I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
