A Lesson from the Pharisees
The Pharisees too were the “religious authority of their day” & “collected money to do ministries in YHWH’s Name” (E.g. charity works) even ‘travelling land & sea to make converts’ (mission work).
Then, what was “their error” which caused them to be “rejected” despite all these ‘great works’? Wrong Doctrine not following written Scripture but rather the teachings of men. As our Blessed Lord revealed, ‘beware of the leaven (doctrine) of the Pharisees’.
Remember, no verses, no truth.
