14 Leave them alone and disregard them; they are blind guides and teachers.4 And if a blind man leads a blind man, they both will fall into a ditch." [The ministers of Christianity are the blind guides the Lord warned us about, not taught by the Lord's voice and light, not perfected by the Lord, not gifted with an authorized ministry, not sent by the Lord, and not speaking words from the Spirit of the Lord; rather, they speak from their carnal minds, the nature of death, and preach their vain opinions from the imagination of their evil hearts. In Christianity today there are millions of blind-guide preachers and blind-guide teachers in the ditch, along with their billions of captive followers, whom they have led into the ditch; the blind guides' lies have been preached by so many for so long, their lies have become pervasive in all of Christianity. By fair speaking and captivating language they deceive the hearts of the simple. Rom 16:18. They are self-appointed, unperfected, ministers posing as authorized by Christ who solicit your money and lord it over you; they are wolves in sheep's clothing, promising liberty when they themselves are slaves of corruption. From the Word of the Lord within: "Just like Judaism was taken over by the enemy, so has Christianity, which is corrupt through and through. There is no church in the world that Christ set up specifically. 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."]
23 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law: judgment, mercy, and faith. You ought to have done these without neglecting the others.
24 You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel. [You follow the insignificant rules and ignore the really important laws.]
25 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the platter, but within you are full of extortion and excess. [The priests and ministers of today's Christianity dress in fine garments, and they pretend to be very holy; but unless changed by the power of God, like all men, their hearts are full of evil, being uncleansed and unpurified. Being covetous, they draw a salary from your contributions, and from their position they lord it over you.]
|Luke 6:39-40 |
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.]
