Beware of Creating Your Own Religious System
As Jesus’ earthly ministry grew in prominence, His standing in the minds of the religious leaders worsened. They resisted His criticisms of their religious system, believing their views to be right, and His to be wrong. In Luke 11, we read of the climax of this contest when Jesus sternly and openly rebuked the Scribes and Pharisees of Israel. Luke Imperato, Director of Residential Counseling, helps us to see the core problems with the religious system of Jesus’ day, and warns us not to let those same faults infect our walk with the Lord.
