It’s not about the “OUTER” Life but about the INNER Life

John, Greg, and Pat discuss how Jesus confronted and challenged the “religious” Pharisees in his day.  In Mathew 5:1-10, the Pharisees were more concerned about the outer life and the traditions of men that can be seen.  They asked Jesus why the disciples did not wash their hands before they ate.  Jesus was clear to say that it’s not what goes into a man that makes him unclean but what comes out of the mouth.  Religion in this context is defined as emphasizing the traditions of men that nullify God’s Word.   Jesus called the Pharisees blind guides.  Jesus is not concerned about our outer life He is concerned about our inner life.  He said in Matthew 15:18, “but the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man unclean.”
